Popular opinion says the music this summer wasn't memorable. I beg to differ.
Nobody knows this song, but you should. She’s from my hometown of Sioux City, Iowa.
Ione - “Why Anna?”
Blondshell was a great find and my summer song is the first cut on the album — Veronica Mars
It is perhaps beginning to dawn on people in the "culture industry" that 15 seconds of pure-High Fructose Corn Syrup -hook is not enough to hang an entire fad upon.
Some of my most frequently played tracks of the summer have been:
Right Thing by Bayonne (https://open.spotify.com/track/5WSbA7CYliGAJiZTRldTMK?si=3MK5mnnVSNeOszgl1AK6nQ)
The Big Mess by Tanlines (https://open.spotify.com/track/4IHPXmWuuBzVdMOhhY9lYS?si=xhu7XunoRQGUkcYc2Msvyw)
and The Clown by Mega Bog (https://open.spotify.com/track/1YNzfTqQVnQt1wUTTEvyuh?si=4oFnZXVWSEW6IakNaSta0A)
Whether any of those would be considered “summer songs” is another matter entirely, but they’re songs (and albums) that were on heavy rotation for me over the summer.
“Love My Way” Psychedelic Furs
Slow Pulp - “Doubt”
