Summer In The Winter

Posted on by Trevor in Playlists | Leave a comment

Let’s face it, winter in New England can suck. Walking a mile plus to work with ice cold gusts blowing off of a frozen Charles really puts a damper on your spirit. I’ve chosen that the best way to deal with this is drown my sorrows in surf rock and warm tunes that make me think of summer. In this playlist you will find a wide range of jams.

70’s British surf rock band The Barracudas book end the list with classic tributes to summer and the “surf scene of London”. In between, you’ll find classic instrumental pieces by The Fleshtones and The Rumblers while also getting a taste of current lo fi rockers Slow Animal and Ty Segall. Accompanying these artists you will find the punk rock beach scene of Guards and FIDLAR who declare that it’s time to “Stop wearing tight jeans, and put on some board shorts.” Of course, any playlist that is going to be reminiscent of a chill, low-key day at the beach is going to have some slower jams which are provided by Washed Out’s classic “Feel it All Around”, Wavves new single “Demon to Lean On” and Real Estate’s hit “Easy”.  Just for good measure, I had to throw in The Hollies legendary “Long Cool Women” because, who doesn’t like that song?

Either way, hope this gets you through the next couples of months and I plan on seeing you on the beach this summer.

Spotify Playlist of the Month November 2012

November means it’s starting to get colder and almost time to chow down on turkey and cranberry sauce. November also means 20 new songs from some of our favorite artists. This month’s playlist features fresh jams from bands like Mean Creek, Ben Sollee, Titus Andronicus and plenty others. We also cheated a bit in our interpretation of “new” music this month. Last year we covered Big Scary’s LP Vacation, but it wasn’t until this month that the record finally got a worldwide release. For former Boston-based quartet Black Light Dinner party, some tracks from their B.L.D.P EP have been floating around the interwebs since 2011, but the full release just hit Spotify and iTunes this week. So we cheated a bit, who really cares? Good music is good music and we are extremely excited to share these 20 tracks with you. Remember to subscribe to get 20 new tracks each month!
