krudd's ultimate summer mixtape, vol. 1

So here's probably the best mixtape you're going to hear all summer - it's scientifically proven to improve your summer by 87% and comes straight from the decks of the Hon. kRudd. In the PM's words:
"This mix is meant to evoke all the feelings of summer. From the breezy, chillaxed mornings, through to afternoon storms and partying with yr bros at nite [sic], this is is where it's at. Throw in a bit of 'what-the-fuck-parliament-doesn't-sit-until-Feb' and you've got the right combination of songs to enjoy in due season - and that season is now: summer!'
Hard to argue with that. I've listened to it myself and can assure you that 87% is a more conservative figure than the ETI - this is the balls.

Shit is epic - 90+ minutes of sweet tunes. Tracklist after the jump.

  1. Looking good! guess I'll have to wait till June to dig it out over here thouh :)

  2. The sexiest compilation by an Anglican, Nambour-raised Labor PM yet! This will be sure to rally the climate sceptics! There will be no doubt after a few spins and some basic meteorological knowledge that it definitely is Summer!

  3. kRudd told me personally that "this shit is destined to melt ice-caps." But I'm not supposed to quote him until after Copenhagen, so keep it hush.
