i don't even like them but that song is pure summer
The Clean, The Chills, The Verlaines...
Don't forget the bats.
as is Sabrosa by the Beastie Boys. But in a different kind of way, more in a kind of like it's so warm and balmy that I have to wind down my car windows kind of way.
Fucksakes WHY haven't got Strung Out yet, it's cleary AWESOME!
Take It From The Man is good but all over the place, Thank God... is brilliant but strictly an r&b/country thing and Strung Out In Heaven is just all sorts of stuff chucked in together, making a brilliant big mix.
Only other thing I've got by them is We Are The Radio EP which is ace, very raga-ish. But I need to know where next to go.
Get 'Their Majesties Second Satanic Request' and 'Methodrone' both of the albums are excellent and well rounded records.
sorry, it's such a fucking mouthful to remember off hand!
particularly 'Hi-Speed Soul' and 'The Way You Wear Your Head'.
though 'Let It Go' as an album has some wintry moments for me.
other bands...Shy Child, Secret Machines, some Ash...I'll second Blink 182 and lots of pop-punk bands from back in the day...Fenix TX were a 15 year old penny_racer fave!
Most of Merriweather Post Pavilion is quite summery. Gobbledigook by Sigur Ros is a good ol' summer jam, as is So Post 'Em All by YACHT, and to be fair most of I Believe In You. Your Magic Is Real.
oh, and of course Sabrina's 'Boys (Summertime Love)'
but I'm currently trying to think of some ska/reggae tinged stuff.
Bob Marley is too obvious.
Also, nearly all of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
Without a doubt!
Anything off that really.
That album ruled my GCSE summer back in the day!
or Kids. I thought that either of those - or both together - they pretty much owned the summer last year.
Dodgy - Stayin' Out For The Summer. ha. that's one from vault. don't get it out.
I second Weezer - Buddy Holly is really light
Also, these - Not only are these about Summer, but they feel like it too:
Arab Strap - The First Big Weekend

Belle & Sebastian - Another Sunny Day
Love - Bummer In The Summer

Pulp - David's Last Summer
Fairport Convention - End of a Holiday
mogwai-summer sounds like the war in Iraq
Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? or Citrus by Asobi Seksu.
Summers Life by The Shaky Hands
Summer Here Kids by Grandaddy
But specifically I've Been High and Beachball.
I always put that album on in April/May when it looks like summer has arrived early.

though "oh mandy" seems more wintery for me
Summer is the rush, the fluttery stomach of meeting new people, the pleasure of being alone outside and the the warm fuzz of experiencing nostalgia for a moment that is actually happening:

is such a perfect song
You couldn't make anything more summery than that.
Australia by the Manics is close behind.
Leisure by Blur is a very breezy sort of album.
by johnny foreigner - free download here -
it's gonna be one of my favorite songs of this summer i think
by Ash. In fact a lot of Ash fits the bill.
Reminds me of 15-16 year old summer times - Goldfinger, Girl From Mars...
My thoughts exactly.
whatever its called
Queens of the Stone Age
Comets On Fire
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
The sun goes down alone
I?m driving by your house
Though I know you?re not at home
But I can see you-
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone...
Sly and the Family Stone - Hot Fun In The Summertime
SFA - Hello Sunshine
Toots and the Maytals - Pressure Drop
