City Limits Records Releases a Mix Perfect for San Francisco

Posted By on Wed, Jun 1, 2011 at 5:13 PM

Yet another ode to the city by the bay, this time courtesy of City Limits Records, dropped yesterday. Featuring tracks by such S.F. kids as Young Prisms, Tim Cohen, Magic Bullets, Melted Toys, and Maus Haus, among others, City Limits Presents: San Francisco, the (mostly) breezy mix is the perfect low-key accompaniment to a crisp S.F. summer day.


The album was put together by Peter Arko from Ears of the Beholder, a local music blog/promoter, and Robert Khoury from See the Leaves, another music blog. They plan to collaborate with other music bloggers from different locales and release more single-city compilation albums.

Though both bloggers describe the compilation as a salute to the variety of music that comes from the city, the mix seems to more effectively complement San Francisco itself. The dreamy, breezy tracks would be perfect twinkling from a stereo at a picnic in the park (any park), echoing down the alleyway from that coffee shop down the street, or playing at full volume on a windows-down cruise through the city.

Right now, the whole album is available to be streamed for free, downloaded for $8, or on 12" vinyl for $20. The vinyl version will be printed on orange vinyl (of course). Check out the whole thing here. Or at least give a listen to our favorite track from the album, "Meant to Be" from Fiveng.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
