What’s on your summer soundtrack? Here are a few favorite artists especially suited for road trips and beach time.
Acid House Kings: Light, airy music that will transport you back to 1970′s Sweden.
Alela Diane: Like Neko Case but with a little more twang.
Phosphorescent: The perfect soundtrack for sitting on the porch on a warm summer evening. Start with “Tell Me Baby”
The Dø: An experimental band whose spacious music feels just right for hot weather. “Stay” is a favorite.
Stornoway: A mix between Mumford and Sons and The Decemberists.
