AT LAST the sun is shining, it’s actually hot enough to wear shorts and, oh baby, I can FINALLY start building the world’s greatest summer playlist!
Just so you get an idea of the quality of the tunes we’re talking about, the highlight of last year’s playlist was Rupert Holmes- Escape (If you Like Pina Coladas). Luckily though, my obsession with The Sweetest Thing’s soundtrack has subsided so its out with the seventies and in with nineties French house music:
On a more serious note, Solange’s EP ‘True’ produced by non-other than my favourite punk member of Test Icicles (no I don’t know who they are either), Dev Hynes, better known as Blood Orange, is basically summer all packaged up and ready to pop on the decks. With 7 songs, ‘True’ is more like an album than an EP and simmers along nicely in the background as the sausages simmer on the Barbie.
Hit play for a little taste of what Solange has to offer aside from some pretty awkward dance moves in a giraffe inspired suit. Ah who I’m kidding, even the suit’s cool.
More sounds of Summer heading this way soon…
