Hail Voyagers!
No better day than the Summer Solstice to return to AotM. (At least that's what I'm telling myself.) A seamless skein of songs in a summery salutation, a salute to the season. May it please.

That for one breath or half-breath I belong to myself?

The return of the flying V! Superb. I know the entire 7 to 15 stretch and the great opener. Enough to know that this is a triumphant return. Bravo.

V, you have reached the perihelion - the closest someone could get to the sun and still make superradiant mixes.

Yesterday AM, listening to the local radio station for traffic/weather, I heard the man say that today (yesterday) was the longest daylight-hour day of the year...
...and you're the 1st person I thought of after he said that. Mr. Solstice.

It wouldn't be Summer Solstice without you, Valis. It was great to awaken to this mix this afternoon after an all-nite download. Enjoyed everything, but Caribou, The Broken West and the McCartney-esque Key stood out. Also good to get reacquainted with Mortimer and the Ruby Suns. And I'll tip my Padre's batter's helmet to the gnomester for the excellent seamless segues. What a team! Solstice ice ice baby!

Man, oh man! What a treat to check in and find a new summer solstice mix. Teaming up with gnomie, as well? Sign me up, mister! Will be downloading momentarily (that final four stretch looks especially nice).

Superradiant, supermix, supercalif . . . . looking forward to hearing a new Valis mix (it's been some time !) although, personally I'm looking forward to autumn now (sorry) . . . too feckin' hot here.

Just Brilliant. Decided to give this one a listen before commenting and loved it. Highlights? All of it, though the Singing To the Sunshine / Lazy Bird run was beudiful. Great closer as well. Oh, and I must get my hands on more El Goodo, prior to this all I'd heard from them was a version of Trigger Cut by 'em...
Props the the Gnome for a blinding blending job....

Solar power!!!! As a sun-worshipper & a lazy bird myself, I look forward to pulling down the power
of these tunes & basking in the positive energy of a Voyaging Valis Mix.
1,000,000 thanks for the download.

My favorite part is the last run from Caribou to Vandervelve. Sunkissed compilation.

Uploaded my first mix in here, still unexperienced on the site but hope you like it:

This mix brought in the dawn Solstice down in Marennes (dunno whether the other holiday makers appreciated it though lol) So pleased I now have a track list, love it all and it's great to see Field Music - from my home town - amongst such esteemed company. She, she, she shine on mon ami!

Woohoo! If it takes a summer solstice to get a mix out of Valis I say let's have a solstice a month. This looks glorious naturally. Can't wait to give it a spin.
