How are all of your week’s going? Tonight we are hosting a casual cocktail soiree in the backyard for the latest in our Hayneedle series, so we are prepping all of the last minute touches for that. I love any excuse to have friends over in the summer! I know I probably say this about all of Matt’s playlists, but this one might be my most favorite ever! If you’re hosting a backyard bash for the fourth or just want to be the person with the best playlist at your party of choice, be sure to have this one all cued up…
Smallpools – Dreaming
Fun summer jam. Good way to start off July.
Queens Of The Stone Age – I Sat By The Ocean
Sitting by the ocean is what I’ll be doing most of this month. 🙂
Rogue Wave – College
Kind of reminds me of college actually.
Say Lou Lou – Julian
Once this song gets in your head, it will never leave.
J. Cole ft. Miguel – Power Trip
No Yeezus on this list. Sorry friends.
Young Summer – Waves That Rolled You Under
It’s like a hipster version of Sade’s “By Your Side” …which is a good thing btw.
CHVRCHES – Recover
I went back through my other playlists just to confirm that I had already put CHVRCHES in there somewhere, and was shocked that I had not!! I’m sorry guys, my bad.
Finish Ticket – Tranquilize
Cool little band from SF. Digging this song right now.
Dawes – Just Beneath The Surface
This band reminds me of a modern day version of Van Morrison. Always a pure and solid sound to their music.
The Royal Concept – On Our Way
Another little summer ditty.
Sigur Rós – Ísjaki
Who knows what they are saying? Who cares?
**ALL TIME FAV**:
The Cardigans – Communication
Sorry to kill the happy summer vibes with this sad little number…but everyone loves a good sad song every once and awhile, right? This song is from The Cardigans album, Long Gone Before Daylight, which is one of the all time best albums in my book (I don’t have a book, but if I did…). Seriously, every single song is great. Go listen…
