Something Dreamy for the Road :: Summer 2010 Play List

This year already proved itself as a fantastic year for releases and shows. Something Dreamy for the Road is a list of music released in 2010 and it’s music that I am absolutely in love with. This is an on going list of awesome, so look for a part two in the fall or maybe sooner. Who knows? I may need to do a part 3. You can listen to most of the songs below, but I suggest you get out there and buy the records because those are just tastes of how awesome those albums actually are.

Camera Talk – Local Natives

Dream City  [Live in Austin] РFree Energy
Their whole album, Stuck On Nothing, is a soundtrack to summer. This song is my favorite song on the album and it’s a live track because these guys sound incredible live.

Take Care – Beach House

Truth Sets In – Avi Buffalo

More or Less – The Soft Pack

Our Deal – Best Coast

Holiday – Vampire Weekend

Crown on the Ground – Sleigh Bells

The Suburbs – Arcade Fire

Odessa – Caribou

Stay Close – Delorean

Tugboat – Venice Is Sinking
Seriously, Venice Is Sinking is one of the greatest bands to come out of Athens in quite sometime. They are definitely Wholly Roller approved. Sand & Lines will be available on June 15 and proceeds go to rebuilding the Georgia Theatre that burned in 2009.

Life Coach – Fang Island

Let Go – jj

Dance Yrslf Clean – LCD Soundsystem

It Gets Your Body Moving – Suckers
The one I chose is from the Daytrotter Session they did, its probably the best I’ve heard (besides live, of course). Wild Smile will be available on June 8 and I can tell you this, it will be awesome.

Take It Easy – Surfer Blood

Crown on the Ground – Sleigh Bells

Friday in Paris – Strange Boys

Thieves – She & Him

Cold War (Nice Clean Fight) – The Morning Benders

Deadbeat Summer – Neon Indian

BONUS song because I love you guys and this is a mix of two things I love: Suckers and Local Natives.
