Summer is full of heat and sunburn and running through sprinklers. But some of my best memories are the summer nights. Meeting up with friends after our closing shifts of our summer jobs. Late night swimming in the lake. Capture the flag. Looking for trouble. Finding that trouble. And the warm wash of those memories are coated in great music. Singing along to mix tapes in my first car. Songs that I still hear to this day that remind me of those times. And hopefully that’s what this latest installment of Good Medicine can be – a new soundtrack to the mischief of the late summer night. Enjoy, you rabble-rousers – we’ll sleep when we’re dead.
