It’s hot. There are no two ways about it. So hot, in fact, that the mere idea of going outside some days seems as unbearable as a Tara Reid movie (that’s a shot out to my fellow Sharknado watchers). So it’s important to make the most of your indoor time, with some tunes to keep you cool.
I’ve got some new-ish jams (Max Frost, Schoolboy Q), some more low-key standards (Sun Kil Moon), and even a collaboration between some indie greats (Polica and Justin Vernon). So scoop some ice cream and slip into some shorts, because it’s gonna be a hot one, and you want to avoid it at all costs.
