Something intangible about a song makes it a summer joint. It just feels like summer. Like a pair of trusty flip flops, camo shorts and Ray-Bans, some music was just tailored for warmer weather. From Duke Pearson’s Brazilian inspired jazz sounds to Reign Ghost’s folk psych and RAMP’s lesser known version of a Roy Ayers classic, we got a healthy dose of audio sunshine for that ear. We present you our first annual summer playlist, Lawn Chair Music Vol. 1. Special kudos/shoutouts/props/acknowledgements to our girl Stephanie Cheng on the artwork. Check out her blog here.
