This is gonna be a long one from me…
I make playlists of music every time a new season starts (or a bit before if I’m wishing for that season to come sooner). I currently have five different summer playlists that I made for this year.
I pretty much listen to Javiera Mena exclusively during the summer. Otra Era (the album and song) pretty much sounds like summer to me.
I also listen to a lot of Croquet Club in the summer. They even have a song called summer!
Air France is another band I listen to mostly in the summer.
This Loudon Wainwright, III about swimming in the summer honestly sounds like the perfect way to spend summer to me. Just swimming in all kinds of different places every chance possible in the warmer months. Some of my favourite summer memories
This Grateful Dead cover by Bruce Hornsby (who’s The Way It Is album is very summery to me) just has the sound of a perfect quiet and breezey summer evening.
This Lewis track also has the quality of a lazy summers evening, windows open, breeze coming in, trying to stay cool.
Finally this Horse Feathers track.
I also made a list of films on Letterboxd that feel like ‘summer films’ to me which includes Do The Right Thing (reccomend watching this on as hot a day as possible), Before Sunrise-Midnight, Our Little Sister, Only Yesterday, Uncle Boonmee…
