Sometimes you just need few tunes that make you think of summer. In my town, we've been swimming through a sweltering heatwave for awhile now, sipping cold drinks and trying to stay cool. Literally. Fans throwing shapes, sprinklers sparking mini-rainbows, more cold drinks.
Superchunk, raspy yelp that still floats melodically above it all, handclaps and grinding guitars, then the rhythm kicks in like triple expresso. And that's only the first 60 seconds.
Mystery Jets - Greatest Hits. you listened to the lyrics to the Superchunk tune, right? Start out a little Stealers Wheely, add a dash of Kinks, a smidgen of Supergrass, a pinch of Blur, and a whole whack of goodness.
The Drums - Let's Go Surfing. The attitude of this song reminds me of the B-52's, a little silly, a little fun, no shame about mixing genres up or doing what they wanted to do. The freedom of summer right here.
