Summer Jams

As the sun begins to shine, so does everyone's mood. While lying bare foot in the grass, it seems as if all negative thoughts melt away..almost as fast as the ice cream. The closet has finally been cleared of heavy parkas and snow why not clean up your music playlist? These four songs are sure to get you in the mood for those lazy, summer days.

1. ) Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks

Foster the People formed in October of 2009. The trio's first single aired on NPR. They released their EP in January of 2010, and expect a full album sometime this spring. The group made a big name for themselves at this year's SXSW festival. After touring Europe this spring they will travel across the U.S this summer.

2.) Tennis- "Marathon"

This husband and wife duo gained inspiration from a sailing trip of the Eastern Seaboard. Their full length album "Cape Dory" came out in January of this year. Tennis's retro-pop songs are sure to be great company while at the beach.

3. ) Cults - "Go Outside"

Couple Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion didn't know what to expect when uploading their three songs online. The duo began by making music in their home, and gained popularity through social networks quickly thereafter.

4.) Surfer Blood - "Take it Easy"

Often compared to group Vampire Weekend, Surfer Blood's first single "Swim" was quickly placed on Pitchfork's best songs of 2009. Their album "Astro Coast" was recorded in their University of Florida dorm.
