|Summer Is Here|
I know, it's been here for a little bit. But I figure it's still time for a summer list. Here are the albums I have been/and plan to be jamming the most during these summer months.
My favorite AB album. Doesn't exactly fit the "summer" theme but still, it's great music for the long, hot days at work.
Dear God, this album is beautiful. For those long afternoons trickling into night.
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
This is a year long jam for me, but lately it's been what I'm in the mood for. The dog days of summer are hard to get through, but this will help.
This is an energetic, and just fun release from this year. Good for all occasions, perfect for parties.
I got into this about 2 years ago during the summer, bringing it back to enjoy once more. I love this album. This and Halcyon are both powerhouses, but I think this holds more of a sentimental value for me.
Same reason as 5, but this album provides so many jams, and it's essential for the late night drives/walks on summer evenings.
If you've heard this album, you'd understand. This is the summer jam of 2014. So far my favorite release of this year by far.
|8|| ||The Gaslight Anthem|
The '59 Sound
Long afternoon drives with the windows down, blaring The '59 Sound, doesn't get much better than that.
|9||Hands Like Houses|
Man I fell for this album hard, it is just filled with emotion and energy.
This is a great album to jam if you're coming home after a depressing night, and just wanna go lay in the dark.
Just, a fun album. Brings the summer vibes strong.
A Beating Heart Is a Bleeding Heart
This and it's predecessor are both just fantastic, something about it just makes them perfect for summer days/nights. Especially the drives.
On Our Own Together
Young Sinatra: Undeniable
The Dark Side Of The Moon
Just. Because. It's another year long jam that is perfect for any time of day, or any type of weather.
Maybe This Place Is The Same...
I really like this album. Change from their "sleepy eyes/bony knees" repetitiveness of their EPs, even though those were solid as well. Just captures the mood of summer breakups.
The Finer Things
Screaming this album at the top of your lungs while it blares through your speakers is literally what summer is about.
|18||Two Door Cinema Club|
Thank you, Pandora. For introducing me to TDCC. Really fun album, "What You Know" is a brilliant song.
We All Need A Reason To Believe
It wouldn't be a dmp list without this album. Been in my rotation since I found it. Year long, but summer is it's highest point.
|20||Walk the Moon|
Walk the Moon
Will be seeing this band in 2 weeks, should be an excellent show. This album is just fun, with a ton of atmosphere, if that makes any sense.
|21||We Are The In Crowd|
This album is a blast, all there is to it, really.
Between this and the Blue album, your Weezer fix is covered. I love this album it's fantastic to wake up to, and jam all day long.
Can't go wrong with Yellowcard on a bright, hot summer day.
|24||Young the Giant|
Mind Over Matter
I'll be listening to this until I literally can't anymore. It's so fun and energetic and captures what I'm looking for in a summer day. Strangely enough, it's also perfect for winter.
|25||Of Monsters and Men|
My Head Is An Animal
Here's another one that just captures the summer vibes for me.
