With us now half way through the year, I thought I’d give a nod to the tracks that are dominating my summer soundtrack. Let’s start with a few recent discoveries.
The Chain Gang of 1974, Hold On
Coldplay, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall
Washed Out, Soft (Thanks Alan!)
Junior Boys, Banana Ripple
Fucked Up, The Other Shoe
The Joy Formidable, The Everchanging Spectrum of a Lie
and then a few throwbacks to summers before…
LCD Soundsystem, Get Innocuous! (from 2007)
Cut Copy, Far Away (From 2008)
Saint Etienne, Stars Above Us (from 2005)
New Order, Regret (Fire Island Mix) (from 1993)
a college classic, and this remix is brilliant.
The Breeder, Cannonball (from 1993)
Another classic from the college years
