A collection, if you will, of vernal artistry, sometimes forgoing singular excellence in favor of thematic concerns. But not by much.
Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood - Summer Wine
This one always has me imagining an opulent outdoor dinner on a long wooden table, at dusk, in some lost Sergio Leone western, There's a Dando cover that's pretty good, only have it on vinyl.
Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet - Summer Wind
Thinking of Nancy had me thinking of Frank.
XTC - Summer's Cauldron
I actually bought this summer 1987 and listened to little else.
Clientele - Summer Crowds in Europe
Movietone - Summer
Beyond downtempo; a more serious project of those members of the excellent Crescent.
Lead Belly - In Dem Long Hot Summer Days
And you can bet your ass they were hotter back then.
The Vandals - Summer Lovin'
Yes ladies, it's that song from Grease.
Aloha - Summer Lawn
Prog rock intentions thus far lead happily to the Zombies.
Jens Lekman -- A Sweet Summer's Night on Hammer Hill
The dour Swede is a recent favorite of the 1.5 year old in my apartment.
Please enjoy the longest day of the year -- or the shortest night, depending on when you burn your fuel.
