A weekly sampler of what we're listening to (new and old), and what we think you might like, too.

{LISTEN TO THEM ALL}

Photobucket
PETER BJORN AND JOHN -- "Amsterdam"
Chillout music for those muggy summer nights. Gotta love the Swedes. (Also, hat tip to Drew for turning me on to them last summer in South Carolina.)

Photobucket
BREEDERS -- "Walk It Off"
I'm sharing this song, but actually sharing the entire Mountain Battles album, which two years after release has gained a second wind in my books. See also: "Overglazed" and "It's the Love" for a full sampling. I appreciate the album's diversity of sounds and mixed levels of grit.

KING KAHN & THE SHRINES -- "I Wanna Be a Girl"
As the humidity embalms me this June, driving with the windows down only offers partial relief as I drive back and forth between Staunton and Waynesboro. It's one of those songs I refuse to turn down if I'm stopped at a red light with other people.

WILD NOTHING -- "Summer Holiday"
I just spent a "summer holiday" in Virginia. The songwriter, Jack Tatum, lives there.

Photobucket
MUMFORD & SONS -- "Awake My Soul"
We were going to see them Monday night, but could not because of tornadoes.

Photobucket
DUNGEN -- "Ta Det Lungt"
The last three and a half minutes are among my favorite musical moments ever. Don't know why. Just rul fuckin' good.

We're on a roll. "Summer Holiday" hits the spot.
