Alright y’all. Ain’t a lot to say here. Farmstand Peach Ale is a tasty summer treat. And these are some tasty summer jams.
Yeah, I had to put the Presidents of the United States of America on here. I mean, it’s a no-brainer amiright? 311’s Homebrew is pure summer fun. The Beck tune is a little on the nose but it’s a good track in its own right. Peaches is one of the most fantastical artists and interesting people ever so including her was a no-brainer. Her track is multi-purpose cuz it rocks so hard. Seriously, crank that song up.
EODM’s trash-jam “Flames Go Higher” sates your need to shake your hips. Cults bring some good vibes to the table. David Byrne’s “Neighborhood” makes you wanna throw a block party and invite all the people you don’t already know. I love cranking this Gorillaz tune mostly for the guest vocal by Snoop—especially the part where he raps about “rockin’ in the bubble bath.” Something tells me he wrote that line after he struck up his friendship with Martha Stewart.
Flaming Lips bring their trademark hippie anarchy with “The W.A.N.D.” M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” is so infectious it should be criminal. MGMT and Sublime close out the summer jams with a laid back vibe that just feels right.
It ain’t complicated. Drink that tasty beer and play these tasty jams. Have a great summer y’all.
