Posted on by Eric in Playlists | 1 Comment

I know that this is the time of the summer where everyone starts to realize that the best beach days may be behind us, but don’t fret there is still plenty of summer left. To take advantage of the rest of your summer, wherever you go be sure that you are armed with the best summer jams. Below is the key to your summer fun and you can grab the whole playlist on Grooveshark to enjoy on your summer adventures.

Dirty Gold- California Sunrise

The perfect song for your summer alarm; wake up, stretch your arms, let out a yawn and let this one play while you get ready for your day

The Drums- Let’s Go Surfing

Just the way to kick-start your summer morning

Foster the People- Pumped Up Kicks

It is literally impossible to avoid this song

Teen Daze- Let’s Fall Asleep Together

This one is for sitting on the beach

LCD Soundsystem- Home

Let James Murphy put a little swagger in your step as you end your summer afternoon

Futurebirds- Dirty D

This one just makes me want to watch the sun set

Battles- Ice Cream

One for the party

Cults- Go Outisde

Two for the party

Beastie Boys- Make Some Noise

Can’t stop the party

The Weeknd- High For This

After everyone has left and you are having your late night wind-down session, put this one on

Winter Meltdown Playlist

Posted on by Neil in Playlists | Leave a comment

Its that time of year again when winter has set up shop, officially opened for business, and is on a 24/7 schedule of nipple hardening ice winds and 12-inch by night mega blizzards. This is not me complaining about winter, (enough people do that) it has its pros and cons just like all the other seasons. But the short days and lack of Vitamin D to the soul can take a toll on everyone. And that’s why I’ve thrown together this little playlist of both old and new tunes that are sure to warm your heart and give you the peace of mind to accept winter and embrace (or cope with) it for a few more months.

The Clash- “Lost in the Supermarket”

Underrated London Calling tune that will get you moving and not try to inject you with sunshine.

Bon Iver- “Beach Baby”

From Justin Vernon’s follow up EP Blood Bank, the Wisconsin winter boy does his best to evoke a little warm weather imagery.

Department of Eagles- “In Ear Park”

Daniel Rossen’s (Grizzly Bear) side project produced this tingling/swooping guitar melody that’s about as delightful as a snowflake on the tongue.

Jeff Buckley- “Grace”

J. Buck suggests waiting “in the fire”, but I think “by the fire” will do just fine too.

Destroyer- “Chinatown”

I don’t know what it is, but something about Dan Bejar’s voice coupled with that saxophone is just downright soothing.

Twin Shadow- “Castles in the Snow (Com Truise Remix)”

Internet remixer Com Truise gives Twin Shadow’s mellow track a heavy dose of super synth.

The Temper Trap- “Sweet Disposition”

I know it may be on the cheesy side but anything that can help me visualize Zooey Deschannel in a wind blown summer dress gently banging on the tambourine is great in my book.

Tennis- “Take Me Somewhere”

And for a reservoir of artificial sunshine, check out Tennis whose sophomore album Cape Dory is due out later this month.
