God Damn The Sun | Total Solar Eclipse Mix | August 21, 2017

I was a young kid the last time we experienced a total eclipse of the sun. Sitting in my Catholic school classroom, I remember the nuns telling us this once a once-in-a-lifetime event. Naturally, since we didn’t have viewing glasses, they half-lowered the shades and only allowed us to peer out for the fleeting moments when the sun was completely hidden behind the moon. I’m a few years older now, and the beauty of being a goddamn adult, is that I can control my own sun viewing habits.

Since this is a once-in-a-lifetime (or maybe twice!), this is a special playlist that brings together our favorite tracks that celebrate the sun, the moon, and the sky. Entitled after The Swans song by the same name, you will find a variety of artists in the post-punk, new wave, electronic, experimental, psychedelic, glam rock, and indie rock artists that we love on Strawberry Tongue.

Starting at 9:00am CDT and playing until 3:30pm, this is a playlist that perfectly accompanies the sky going out.
