With summer in full swing, CV would like to share with you our favorite songs for the month of July. We hope you enjoy!
Alex Kon’s pick of the month is “Horripilation” by Do Make Say Think.
Alex picked this because it’s a great, free-flowing track which showcases the impressive dynamics that Do Make Say Think are capable of.
Harrison Wilf is playing Coldplay’s “Paradise” on full blast this summer.
Simply put, Harrison has chosen the platinum single from the universe’s favorite living band because it is, and always will be a, “great song.”
Lauren Ziolkowski has “Virginia Girls” by Envy on the Coast on repeat.
Lauren can’t stop gushing about this song, ever since she heard it for the first time last week, she’s been really into it. Additionally, the entire EP is hot off the press.
Laur Hudson wants you to check out “Supercut” by Lorde.
Recently, Lorde released her second album, Melodrama. Laur thinks the entire record is perfect, but "Supercut" in particular is the standout track for her. The lyrics pack a huge emotional punch and demonstrate how delicately Lorde handles her angst, while the song's flawless pop production balances retrospection with a little bit of fun.
Jack Graubard has chosen “I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar” by Fleet Foxes.
The opener off of their most recent release,Crack Up, this song kicks off Fleet Foxes' return tremendously. Frontman Robin Pecknold's impressive vocal range is displayed here, as well as complex, yet beautiful instrumental dynamics.
“100 Letters” by Halsey is Allison Rhyu’s current favorite.
Halsey’s new album has had some amazing songs that was able to combine catchy pop beats with emotionally evocative lyrics. While songs “Now or Never” and “Strangers” have received more commercial accolade, “100 Letters” is a relatively underrated song in the album that deserves more attention.
MK Moore is feeling “Here Comes My Baby” by Yusuf / Cat Stevens.
I first listened to this song because it came at the end of a Wes Anderson movie, Rushmore. From the second the song starts, the upbeat, harmonic tune of the instruments is enough to turn put anyone in a good mood.
