JBFC Mixtapes, Vol. 24: Sounds of Summer 2023
by JBFC Senior Film Programmer Monica Castillo
JBFC Mixtapes is an initiative from the Burns to highlight the music—from soundtracks to scores—that makes the cinematic experience so special. Vol. 24: Sounds of Summer 2023 comes to us from JBFC Senior Film Programmer Monica Castillo, who writes:
“Like a great song, summer never last as long as it should. Fortunately, this year’s eclectic Sounds of Summer 2023 lineup means a JBFC Mixtape that will keep the good feelings going through the rest of the season and beyond. There’s a little bit of everything from the early days of rock ‘n’roll and mambo to prog rock, punk, Tejano, techno, hip-hop, and even folk music. Some of their names and lyrics will be familiar, some of them might not. Some might be the obvious title tracks; others will be deeper cuts inspired by the movies in the series. So, wherever your summer travels may take you, enjoy the grooves whenever you visit for our Sounds of Summer series and on your own with this all hits no skips playlist.
Jam out to our Sounds of Summer 2023 series now through August 30!”
Stream or save the full mixtape on Spotify to listen offline later, then snag tickets for Sounds of Summer 2023!
