Ryan Gonzales Johnson is a Roaster in our Brooklyn roast outpost. He put together a sick summer mix for us of songs and bands he’s discovered since moving to New York from Portland a year ago. It’s just right for a windows-down road trip or riding bikes through the hot summer streets.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

When not working, I’m parenting my 10-year-old daughter, family-ing with her and my wife, bicycling from here to there, drawing, looking for new music to get into, reading and exploring Buddhist spiritual practice.

Favorite things to eat right now in New York or LA? 

In New York, finding a legit burrito is hard so I’ve had to convert to heros.  But my current favorite thing is the cold vermicelli with spring roll at Hanoi in Park Slope.

Favorite corner of the city?

I live in South Slope, Brooklyn so I gotta represent, but people sleep on Gowanus.

What can you tell us about this mix?

I’ve been in New York a little over a year now (from Portland).  These are mostly bands/songs I’ve discovered since being here.  I like a lot of dark, brooding or synthy, goth/punk stuff so this is maybe an expression of my more pop sensibilities, what with it being summertime and all.  Add that to the cadence of the city vibe I find myself working from and that’s kinda where it’s at.

Thanks Ryan!
