If District residents are anything like me, they’re itching for more 70 degree days complete with sun, beer, and lawn sports. I know, I know, you’re thinking: all this dude blogs about is Cut Copy and summertime sunshine. Well I’m sorry but I write what I live and I live what I love. Get over it.
Since the Weather Gods blessed us a couple Fridays ago, the meteorological conditions have been mediocre at best, mostly tempting us humans with slightly bearable barometric conditions, spoiling any semblance of good weather with gale-force gusts. But things may be on the up and up; we’re looking to hit 60 degrees a couple times this week.
So in the spirit of the impending summer season, and all things warm weather, I’ve assembled a package of bands and songs with titles derivative of our favorite season, in order to help usher in the glory days of sun and sand. Hazy and lo-fi, jagged, dense, and obtuse, or July 4th appropriate Americana, here are some tunes to help you daydream about wearing short shorts and no shirt on a sultry summer night. Enjoy…
