MusicBetweenFriends Presents: Summer In Winter

It’s so cold here in Southern Ontario! Don’t let the Southern part fool you; we can get chilled with the best of them. Music Between Friends proudly presents Summer In Winter, a playlist heavy with surf-rock, spiritual awakening, and grunge.

First up is Wasting Our Time by James Leroy, a funk-punk track with a motowny guitar line and a hyperactive tambourine. After that comes Starfield, by PS I Love You, an anthem for grungy astronauts. Then, Slime by Sleeping Bag headbangy and handclappy. The Calendar by The Dø will completely win you over by oozing its French-Finnish charm. Then, One Day by Sharon Van Etten reminds us of a female version of Girls. We follow it up accordingly with Substance by Girls. After that, Smith Westerns make grungy garage music even cooler with My Heart. Can you handle strong, strange voices? Because here come Kiss Me Like You Mean It by The Magnetic Fields and Graceland by The Tallest Man On Earth. Kurt Vile riffs on some great ideas in I Know I Got Religion. A splash of Deerhunter in Revival ties everything back to the heavy surf-rock theme of this playlist. Little Scream sweetens the pot with Heron and the Fox and Basia Bulat caps it off with Sparrow. Sharon Van Etten pops back in with Love More. Anonymous psychadelic-rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra strike us dead with drug-addled Thought Ballune. Fans of The National will take pleasure in the sweet, meandering piano line combined with drowsy vocals take us home in Lord Knows by Dirty Beaches.
