Maybe I am getting ahead of myself here, but as soon as the sun comes out and the temperature gets anywhere above thirty, I leap into Spring mode.
One of the many ways I celebrate turning of seasons is through music. Here is a compilation of some of my top warm weather tunes.
“In a Boat on a Lake” by Whistle Peak – An all male quartet based out of a town near and dear to my heart, Louisville, KY, produces sounds that are simultaneously lighthearted and eerie with just the right amount of folk. This song in particular has head-bopping qualities that I always look for when the sun is shining.
“Instant Crush” by Daft Punk ft. Julian Casablancas – Featured on Daft Punk’s most recent creation, “Random Access Memories.” The Strokes’ front man’s soft enchanting vocals will be playing incessantly on warm night drives through my favorite parts of town.
“Head On (Hold On to Your Heart)” by Man Man – This group of Philadelphia gentlemen have been generating some of the weirdest and greatest music since 2003. Their latest album “On Oni Pond”, where this song debuted last year, features some of the most energetic and “pop-y” music Man Man has ever ventured to produce.
“My Song 5” by Haim – A trio of sisters that have exploded into fame within the past year have also created some of my all time favorite girl-power songs.
“The Look” by Metronomy - an album so fresh I can’t believe its been out for over two years. I will never tire of the perky and methodical beats from this English group.
