So while we’re stoked to have Monday off, we’re not so excited about the prospect of colder days and wearing more layers. It’s with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix, full of songs that deftly capture that melancholy end of summer vibe.

A good music video can make a mediocre song tolerable, but a bad music video of an equally bad song creates an aural singularity of fart-stained terribleness. These are the worst we’ve seen so far this year — and 2013 is far from over. Consider the following your State of the Union address for “Things That Will Make Two of Your Five Senses Atrophy,” or perhaps a sonic Cerberus of “Shittiest Song of Summer 2013.” In any case, we’re sorry.

At the end of the day, the Mud King and Mud Queen for “most creative uses for mud” are crowned. The Western Wayne Hazmat team is involved in clean-off the kids. Needless to say, I am fascinated and more than a little hurt and disappointed that grownups are not allowed.
But despite these findings, I am still pretty confused about this day of mud. Here is what I desperately need to know: Keep reading »
