We are Mondo Boys — a NY/LA mixtape/sound collage collaborative.  This is our faded out late-summer mix.  We do cassettes/digital.

“WEIRD SUMMER” was created exclusively to get you through those last few incredibly sticky days of the hottest god damn summer you can remember. Fuel for the fire. Grab that boom box, hit the beach, and turn up the volume. Best served before 9.21.2009. Mucho take it easy. – MB

(mondo boys are: m. schanzlin, n. punwar, m. griffin, and j. gage)
