How to sum up a summer that was so full of both beauty and melancholy and equal parts good times and sobering news? US&THEMgot the MRE crew together with a bottle of Makers, a 50 of kush and records from some of today's best lyricists, songwriters and heavy players to find a few answers.

Mixed high above Grand Central inside Tom Gehring's Studio 9 with the AC and speakers turned up and the lights turned down on a hot Saturday in August. While we were selecting and sequencing tracks GetLive was adding the precise cuts and rocking doubles. So welcome aboard and turn it up louder, this is a rockers ladies and gentlemen.
