Play Back: Summer Jams

We’ve got you covered with another killer soundtrack.

By Artemis Thomas-Hansard

June is basically upon us, which means two things: it’s time to turn over your playlist, and it’s time to turn over your closet (or at least turn those jeans you’ve been wearing out into a super cute pair of cutoffs). We’re cranking the heat with some west coast sunshine courtesy of Best Coast, some stuff that’s surfy and scuzzy (Blondie, Jacuzzi Boys, Sex Bob-Omb), and even Kid Cudi. Opening with one of the most jangly summer jams of the 90s, and closing with an ode to warm winds via SZA, this playlist is as adventurous as summer itself. So throw on those sunnies and ride the wave–it’s gonna be a warm one.
