Summer Anthems

Since I'm on an end-of-summer kick...

If there is one band that saved summer music for me this year, it was Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Their sound is lively, nostalgic, and very eclectic...just perfect, breezy, summer music!

I love finding that one summer anthem or album -- the one that will always remind me of the particular events of this particular summer. One stipulation is that it needs to be good for cranking up in the car and driving with the windows down! This song particularly met the requirements! It will forever remind me of front-porch Mojitos, late-night tennis matches, and singing and clapping in the car with my sweetie...

What was your favorite song or album this summer??

Hmm... I'd have to say my favorite song from this summer was Animal Collective's "My Girls".

My summer is only starting!!! But I think it's definitely going to be some old favourites - Lykke Li, "vintage" NERD, and Camera Osbscura. I must check out this band you've talked about. But I know exactly what you mean about summer anthems. WHen I was flatting with all my girlfriends, Jack Johnson's Brushfire Fairytales was on constant repeat.
