Week... Um, Fuck It... Summer

Hey guys, I know it's been forever since I did one of these but I've been really busy with second semester junior year and lacrosse and stuff. Anyways, it's summer here in Boulder, and so instead of doing an album I'm gonna make a play list for all you cool cats out there to get your groove on, so let's boogy. This is gonna be called Summer 2011 playlist, super original right? Here we go.

Track 1: To The Beach by the Canadian band Jon and Roy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X68Rs7DiJk (this song is so chill and about beaches, how could it not be on here?)

Track 2: Wash Away by Joe Purdy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTdCzIduUb4 (Joe Purdy is a lot like Jon and Roy with the simplicity of guitar and vocals. This song was on Lost, that's why you recognize it)

Track 3: Dub Fire by Aswad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw3PImkJhU0 (This is the song that introduced me to the Dub movement, possibly the chillest music in the world. This is a bass heavy song so if you don't have good speakers get some.)

Track 4: Sun Is Shining by Lee "Scratch" Perry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOnPS4Oyi24 (Originally a Bob Marley song, but I personally like this version more)

Track 5: Another Noon by Jon and Roy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udprpIq28jA&feature=related (Going back to Jon and Roy because they're awesome and this song is perfect. just listen to the drum, so chill)

Track 6: Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gX1EP6mG-E (Truly a summer time classic. Wagon Wheel is one of those songs that every one knows and can sing along too, if you can't, you should learn. Great bon fire music.)

Track 7: Seven Days In Sunny June by Jamiroquai http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRSH-egVyzk&feature=artistob&playnext=1&list=TLvqFfhV7Y8KY (I usually put this on playlists as a joke, but it's actually a really nice, relaxing song)

Track 8: ChChChillin by DKap http://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialDKap#p/u/12/SmOhXUa0zpY (Huge SHOUT OUT to my boy Daniel Kaplan. This is off of his first of many albums so chill)

Track 9: Sunrise by Nora Jones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd02pGJx0s0 (The most soothing voices around, Nora Jones is incredible)

Track 10: New Soul by Yael Naim http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtslwxL_Leg (Another summer classic)

That's it for this playlist. Keep on checking in, I'm sure I'll have some more playlists coming up for you. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen
