new summer music.

i admit, i'm at a bit of a loss for new music this summer. nothing has really spoken to me yet. i've been listening to NPR first listen for the past few weeks, hoping for some inspiration, and maybe i've found some?

The Cults

I don't know, I just feel like this summer I need music that sounds different than...sleigh bells, best coast, or enter random indie brooklyn band here. i want something fun to listen to, but also something kind of ethereal. something to roll down the windows and sing along to, and something to sit around on a hot day with a dripping glass of icy beverage melting in your cup. maybe i'm looking for two kinds of music.

any inspiration? what are you listening to this summer?

have been going through the same thing (and have been playing the cults on first listen, not even kidding) and have found a solution: http://www.missmoss.co.za/tag/music-mix/. Spent waaaayy too much time downloading some of these, but now i am now no longer bored with my music. and i can finally give the cults a rest.
