TRANS AM - THE RED LINE (classic song: Play in the Summer)
WILL SMITH & JAZZY JEFF - Summertime
and Q-Tips new album!
no! not at all! this is a killer summer nostalgic song! have some fun in your life!
It's full of bass-heavy electro/techno stuff that's pretty summery. Tigerbeat6 music always sounds better in the summer. Here's some more summery artists:
Buraka Som Sistema
Les Savy Fav
Beck - Odelay (&/or Guero)
Dirty Projectors - Rise Above (if your feeling angst but summery)
otherwise I'd say (the band I always talk about)
the wrens meadowlands
Yo la tengo's I can hear your heart beating
100's other I can't remember
I also love this in the sunshine
The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Olivia Tremor Control
De La Soul
IS sunshine, basically. For me it feels exactly like a long, hot, wistfully happy summery day.
if it's hot, Pixies
if it's REALLY hot, Kyuss or QOTSA
I fucking love Kyuss when it's boiling.
whilst walking to work in 20-odd degree Lisbon heat :D
I always have to listen to the Eels when it's sunny.
Also, Jazzy Jeff and will smith's summertime always makes me think of being a kid and enjoying proper summers in the garden with my cousins, drinking orangina and getting nasty rashes from DIY waterslides (i.e. big bit of plastic with the hose on it). Good times :D
it's the obvious choice and for good reason. I'd add Phoenix and The Lemonheads
it just feels sooooooo right in the sun.
Modest Mouse - Interstate 8
The Little Ones
Death Cab For Cutie
The Spinto Band
De La Soul
Apples in Stereo
and The Wannadies to that list.
Pump by Aerosmith is also a great summer record, but let's not get ahead of ourselves!
actually most of the first album. Elephant Eyelash. Oh, Inverted World. Today is the Day EP. Aldhils Arboretum.
is just perfect, I have it blazing right now.
It sounds like a more psychadlic beach boys mixed with lush and soulful hiphop beats.
Silkie & Harry Craze - Favela / French Knickers
its just the funkyest massive sounding sunny sounding bunch of tracks. One with a brazilian vibe with really swung drums and horn / piano grooves and the other a sexy laid back loungy affair... mmmm nice.
infact any silkie and quest is perfect summer time dubstep
you should try Lie In Light by Cloudland Canyon. Just went for a walk listening to that and it was perfect...so, so, so psychedelic.
We used to listen to Weezer and Sublime on repeat!
These days I'd go for:
Boards of canada
Random minimal techno mixes
Don't forget Special Sauce and Toots and the Maytals.
I haven't listened to the album since the sun went away. Maybe i'll pull it back out when its sunny.
so you got African music (Fela Kuti), Latin rock (Santana), New Orleans soul (The Meters), desert rock (Kyuss) and reggae (Burning Spear). They sound like what hot feels
so any soul music, basically
the Beach Boys
Favour for Sailors
Especially Kites are Fun, but justabout anything really.
Reminded me that The Velvet Underground - Loaded, is the penultimate sunny day/summer album.
and when you're out of fuel, i'm still afloat
and the feeling
I seem to listen to them far more in Summer than Winter.
Tom's mix CDs he made me had it on :)
i've always associated with sunnyness
kim and jessie especially. awesome.
the flaming lips - yoshimi........
royksopp- melody am. eple, very sunny tune.
cut copy- nobody lost, nobody found.
of all of these songs..
i limited it to the 5 most popular on spotify so I wouldn't go crazy with indecision. it's collaborative so add whatever else
Dodgy - good enough
I used this as a base for my ipod genius playlist today and it threw out some cracking tracks, including Inspiral Carpets, Supergrass etc. Cracking.
pretty poifect, no?
