Experiencing those end-of-summer blues? We’ve got you covered with our favorite tunes to wrap up the summer of 2017.
Allison Rhyu’s pick of the month is “Where This Flower Blooms” by Tyler the Creator.
“It's definitely one of the best songs on Tyler the Creator's new album. Frank's vocals are beautiful here as well!”
Lauren Ziolkowski is feeling “My Saving Grace” by Armor for Sleep.
“Because, oh my God, does anyone else remember this song?!”
Ryan Gannon can’t stop playing “Mother Mary” by Foxboro Hottubs.
“After searching for new songs I came across this song on an undercover album released under a fake name by a famous band. Can you guess the band?”
Sam Rosenblatt wants you to check out “Chariot” by Gavin DeGraw.
“‘Chariot’ is a classic example of a song I've liked for many years when I heard it on the radio but didn't know the title of it until recently. Now it's been steadily climbing to the top of my most played songs on iTunes and the chorus has been stuck in my head for much of the summer.”
Catch Jack Graubard listening to “Still Beating” by Mac DeMarco.
“Mac DeMarco's new album, This Old Dog, is one of my favorite albums of 2017 and ‘Still Beating’ is one of my favorite tracks from it. Heartfelt lyrics, good guitars, everything you'd expect from a DeMarco song.”
Laur Hudson has contributed “Dream State” by Lucy Dacus.
“I first discovered Dacus's music in a coffee shop (where else, honestly?) and have been captivated by her voice ever since. I find this track's slow build and poetic, introspective lyrics particularly stunning. The tone feels right for moments of transition, like the ones most of us are undertaking as we prepare for a new year.”
“Neighbors” by Grizzly Bears is probably on Alex Kon’s speakers right now.
“The song has great summer indie vibes.”
Tyler DiBartolo has been vibing to “Fever” by Vybz Kartel.
“I've heard this song bumping non-stop on every dancehall radio station, blasting when you walk down any street in Brooklyn. It's the hottest song to dance and get sexy to this summer, without a doubt. Even more, Diplo did an awesome remix!”
MK Moore can’t stop playing “Expectations” by Belle & Sebastian.
“I can’t believe I had never really checked out Belle & Sebastian before this summer. They have at least one song in all of my favorite movies and after recently watching Juno, they finally made it onto my playlists. This track is the one that sold me on the classic indie-movie band.”
