In the second episode of our songs of summer series, we revel in heavy, lush beats. The songs are some of our favorites from 2016 so far—and many are new releases from June and July. Hear tracks from LION BABE, Xenia Rubinos, Oh Pep! and more.
Songs of summer can take on so many forms. The ones that usually get hailed at the end of the year as “the song” are obviously bangers, but lazy, heavy beats are so quintessentially summer. They embody that hip swaying feel for when it’s too hot to actually do any real movement. And the set of songs in this episode definitely achieve that.
LION BABE – Treat Me Like Fire – Begin
Oh Pep – Crazy Feels – Stadium Cake
Xenia Rubinos – Don’t Wanna Be – Black Terry Cat
Salt Cathedral – No Ordinary Man – No Ordinary Man (Single)
Painted Zeros – Call Back – Floriography
IDER – Pulse – Pulse (Single)
