Songs For Summer 2015

The music has shined through recently with all your summer music needs. Depending on your mood, you could throw on full albums like Great Peacock’s Making Ghosts for your southern summer, watching the sunset from your front porch. Or maybe the perfect fun summer album, doo-wop 50’s-60’s rock vibes from Coma Girls self titled album. Guantanamo Baywatch‘s Darling…It’s Too Late has the surf rock vibes. Leon Bridges‘ Coming Home may just be your perfect album for all your summer moods with the 50s-60s soul making a comeback. Seoul is bringing back chill wave, a summer staple, with their album I Become A Shade.

Recently the good danceable indie pop/rock has started coming out just in time to get those bods moving this summer with Stokeswood, LA Priest, Robert Delong, and more. And don’t forget about the potential summer smash hits (at least they should be) in Jamie xx’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) and Beck’s “Dreams”. Of course Tame Impala’s “Let It Happen” and Alabama Shakes’ “Don’t Wanna Fight” should have already been blasting through your speakers and continue to do so all summer.

We have curated a playlist of songs for all your summer needs on Spotify. The playlist starts out a little lighter as you set up shop by a pool, beach, or lake and works it way into the upbeat section of the playlist to get the bods moving with some dance-y tunes, mix in some rock ‘n’ roll to keep you going, and some funk or soul music. The playlist takes you till you start winding down after too many drinks in the hot sun, setting up shop on your front porch to take in the last of the sun’s rays as the sun goes down. And well, once the sun goes down on a hot summer night after a long day of drinks, the night could go in so many directions….enjoy!
