Summer Songs!

So we were looking for the perfect playlist to soundtrack our Summer this weekend, but we were too busy taking in the sun, basking in its sunny warmth and lazing around on the lawns of South Jersey to actually, you know, sit at a computer and compile one. Luckily our friend Thom (you know, the guy who records Mountain Goats shows and recommends stuff to you) was up to the task. And we think he did a mighty fine job. The track list is as follows:

1. Elvis Costello - The Other Side of Summer
2. Belle and Sebastian - Another Sunny Day
3. The Fiery Furnaces - Here Comes the Summer
4. Wilco - Heavy Metal Drummer
5. Kurt Vile - Trumpets in Summer
6. Jane's Addiction - Summertime Rolls
7. Dirty Projectors - Stillness Is the Move
8. St. Vincent and the National - Sleep All Summer
9. Bob Dylan - Summer Days
10. The Hold Steady - Constructive Summer
11. Yo La Tengo - The Summer
12. Pavement - Summer Babe
13. Rilo Kiley - August
14. Hüsker Dü - Celebrated Summer
15. Coconut Records - Summer Day
16. Superchunk - June Showers
17. The Decemberists - July, July!
18. The Velvet Underground - Who Loves the Sun
19. The Who - Summertime Blues
20. Ramones - Rockaway Beach
21. Beat Happening - Indian Summer

If you're playing the "one of these things is not like the other game" you've probably spotted the oddity: Dirty Projectors "Stillness is the Move". But Thom really digs that song, so we're letting it slide ;) Listen to the WHOLE MIX below:

And download one track while you're out it:

Awesome playlist. Hadn't heard that St Vincent & National cover.

You'll hopefully enjoy this St Vincent interview we just did http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4137450-blank-stares-and-black-holes--dis-meets-st-vincent
