Here are five sun-soaked sizzlers, one for each day of the week. Come Saturday, the Summer Solstice will be here. That means summer is just around the corner. Can you believe it? I can. So let's celebrate!
This song is my last desire, my first desire, and every desire in-between. I have this synth-drenched stomper on infinite repeat. Its trippy swirls and woozy choruses get me every time.
Mix the Beatles with Animal Collective, then top that with shimmery electronica, and you got yourself some Painted Palms. Blending hard-hitting sonic boom and gooey electronics, you're delighted with a sugary psych pop treat.
Melodic, catchy, and dare I say heavenly, this dreamy tune comes from a mysterious musician, one who has presumably produced this song as a soloist. There's not much out there in the blogosphere about the NJ-based Blood Cultures. But when it comes to "Indian Summer," one thing's for sure: me likey.
If this song doesn't scream "SUMMER!" to you, you must be deaf. It's a happy and whimsical track, designed for the sole purpose of giving you the feel-good fuzzies. If you're not in the mood for a pop-induced sugar rush, check out the chillwave remix by mastermind producer EMBRZ. It's not as upbeat, but it's every bit as delicious.
Stuck in your head? Or stuck in your id? Trick question. They're the same thing and this danceable gem will get stuck in both.
