Mixtape Monday: Summer Sounds

I've been obsessed with Tanaka y su orquesta's "Neu Chicago" since I got it November, but it's summery sound wasn't appropriate for winter. Now that school is winding down and summer is on the horizon, I cant stop listening to this super fun song! The lyrics are simple and wonderfully relatable.

"So you're digging a shallow grave/ For your heart because it won't behave/ I'll grab a shovel, you grab a spade/ And we'll dig that shallow grave"

This playlist was inspired by Neu Chicago - all summer-ready, electronic songs - some even have beachy sound effects :)

1. Neu Chicago - Tanaka y su orquesta (it's also my ringtone)
2. My Girls - Animal Collective
3. New Theory - Washed Out
4. Heaven's On Fire - The Radio Dept. (my favorite song this time last year)
5. Young Blood - The Naked and Famous (I associate 80's influenced songs with summer as well)
6. I'm Going Down - Free Energy (Bruce Springsteen cover)
7. Ten-Twenty-Ten - Generationals (I see this being used in a commercial)
8. Coastal Break - Tycho
9. Take Me Over - Cut Copy
10. All Night, All Right - Tanaka y su orquesta (If you like Daft Punk, you will love them)
11. Stay Close - Delorean (reminds me of the 90's for whatever reason)
12. How Bizarre - OMC (a real 90's song - one of my favorites...reminds me of The Parent Trap)
13. Soak It Up - Houses
14. Aminals - Baths
15. Icarus - White Hinderland
16. Eugene - Cursed Kids
