This week has been hot. Unbearably hot. So while you wallow in your likely un-central-air-conditioned apartment, we’ve got some tunes to help keep your spirits high — or at least semi-motivated to keep going. First off is Blind Pilot, whose album And Then Like Lions will surely lull you into a gentle state of acoustic euphoria. Then, of Montreal will draw you back to reality, delivering another album of perfectly bizarre, psychedelic punk pop with Innocence Reaches. The Pack A.D. and Thee Oh Sees will then kick things into a much higher, much more blistering gear, as both have returned with new rock records to leave you sweating even more than you already are. Next, Savoir Adore, with their album, The Love That Remains, will keep your heart beating fast, as synth tones and pounding drums swirl around pop vocals. Finally, Young the Giant, delivering their newest, Home of the Strange, will give you a little bit of everything, offering punchy rock numbers, straight-up pop gems and vibey synth tunes. Follow the playlist to stay updated!
