This balmy January afternoon has me thinking of a most delightful new song.

From their recent album, Joesin’, loving duo Matt & Jenny Jones have it down with their tune “Bummer Summer”. Thanks be for something to rival the too oft’ used Twain-ism. I suggest vigorous jumping around the room to this sweet, addictive, track as it creeps into your happy recesses to stay.

Thanks to Producer Mark Dantona for bringing this lovely vinyl to the shop. Come get it.

“Bummer Summer”

Let’s hit the beach.
The fog’s rollin’ in.
Let’s get the pick-nick blanket.
My dear where have you been these past few weekends.

It’s cold and it’s gray.
Well let’s go outside.
It’s been freezing all day.
Maybe the clouds will clear, we’ll have a summer next year.

We’ve been waiting so long for the sun. This San Francisco drizzle ain’t no fun.
One of these days the sun is gonna burn right through.
Until then my friends what are we gonna do?
Until then my friends what are we gonna do?

How bout the dessert?
Na’h that’s too dry.
Well, how about L.A.?
Na’h that’s too far to drive when gas is $4.35.

The boardwalk is cool.
There’s too many bums.
How ’bout a hotel pool.
Let’s find a heated one, I’m calling everyone.

It’s been a total bummer summer in the bay, but its all good.
It always seems some year someone else’s could.
One of these days the sun’s gonna burn right through.
Until then my friend’s what are we gonna do?
Until then my friends what are we gonna do?
