Metric - Youth Without Youth
Any music from Metric is great for a summer party. Youth Without Youth is no exception.
Atlas Genius - Trojans
Look out world, Australia is on a roll lately with their awesome music. Atlas Genius is their latest export.
Alex Clare - Too Close
Enjoy it while you can, it's a pop song with a hint of dubstep. While I love this mix in Too Close, I'm secretly hoping that pop song infused dubstep doesn't become a thing.
Young Blood - The Naked And Famous
Another fun little summer track, The Naked and Famous has a nice nostalgic feel to it.
Of Monsters And Men - Little Talks
Keep Little Talks for the end of the night when everyone is waiting to dance. It's got a Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros feel to it.
The Black Keys - Tighten Up
Tighten Up is the latest single from The Black Keys and is a safe bet for any party.
The Lumineers - Ho Hey
Being mistaken for Mumford and Sons is definitely a good thing for The Lumineers. This song is perfect for unwinding after overeating at the BBQ.
M83 - Midnight City
M83's Midnight City works a bit better when the sun starts to set but it's definitely going to get people asking "what's that song?" if they don't know it.
Grouplove - Tongue Tied
Grouplove's Tongue Tied has been getting a lot of love on the radio lately. For good reason too, Tongue Tied is fun little tune.
Fun - We Are Young
The song that finally kicked GOTYE's Somebody I Used To Know off the music top list stateside. Fun's We Are Young doesn't dissappoint .
