Summer is over (this is the point where you hate me for pointing that out). What a summer it was though. We had sun for more than four weeks, and had a load of new music gracing our ears. This is the summer wrap-up playlist. If you missed these songs during your busy summer of beach and patio parties, check them out.
Gaslight Anthem – 45: It’s a song about records and relationships. It also has a sing-along chorus. What more do you want?
Wildlife Control – Analog or Digital: From the opening bass line, to the last second of this song, you won’t get enough of this one. Try it out.
Stars – Theory of Relativity: Their last album was kind of a disappointment, but they’ll blow you out of the water with this song from their new album The North.
Metric – Breathing Underwater Emily Haines is my future ex-wife. She just doesn’t know it yet. This is the stand out track from their latest offering.
Mike Snow – Paddling Out: Kind of a different song, but it’s an ear worm that won’t leave your head.
Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros – That’s What’s Up: It’s impossible to not smile during this one.
Divine Fits – Would That Not Be Nice: One of the most buzzed about bands out there this summer. Why? Well, here’s a formula for you: Wolf Parade + Spoon + Great Music – over inflated egos = Divine Fits
Grouplove – Tongue Tied: So fun and happy. The song was even on an iPod commercial! .
The Killers – Runaways: Channeling their inner U2, the Killers are back… With style.
