We only rode out to the Cracker Barrel across town, but the trip rocking out to the Protomen and all their epicness made me want to really hit the road and enjoy all that nature & the pavement have to offer together. Alas, here's some of the folks I have a feeling will be dominating the stereo & ipod during the warmer months:
1) Vampire Weekend: They just make me think of beach, happiness, sun and fun.
2) Matt & Kim: They exude happiness, sunshine & make me dance. I mean, the single off the latest record is called "Daylight" and opens with the words:
4)MGMT- I might be late to jumping on this train, but I'm alright with that. Mainly the possibility of seeing them at Bonnaroo & the fact I came into the song "Kids" after the rest of the world played it out, I like what they're going for (minus the totally shtick of the tribal paint deal).
5)Ribbonpigeon- The boys have a new record coming out via the interwebs, for free, fairly soon. They recorded it up at Grand Palace here in Murfreesboro & I have a feeling it's going to be another really good release for windows down, driving around. More info when it is posted...
What are your summer artists/songs? Hope the sun comes out & warms you wherever you are!
