Fresh For Summer Playlist

Listen to this week’s show in the players here, plus insights into what this curated music selection is about and get the full playlist of artists, song titles, albums and more.

FreshForsummer-Condensed What makes the best summer playlist? It’s a question that music curators, insiders and even the big corporations are trying to figure out. There’s a big push every summer for the Pop music world to manufacture (yes that’s actually the right word for this) the “song of summer.” Every summer there’s a hit song that plays everywhere you turn.

Knowing me and my proclivities against both the Pop industry (and its boring nature) as well as not playing any song more than a handful of times on this show in sequential weeks, I wanted to make a more fresh and fun playlist for the summer.

This summer playlist is curated music from some of the best new and emerging musicians from all over the US and beyond, including 2 exclusive songs from Chris Ford recorded just for our show. Videos for both of these tracks are on upcoming blogs and on our Facebook page. We also have music from Kerchief’s new album which Richard Lyne reviewed a little while back, new sounds from Joss Stone and Katie Lee. I’ve hailed Galactic’s new album Into the Deep as one of the top 3 of 2015 and they open Hour 1 to prove my point. And since I love the alt-rock sounds of the 90s, I had to showcase to you State Line Syndicate, this great new punk band who is bringing that classic sound back. Wait, did I just say the 90s alt-rock/punk was a classic sound?……
