Sounds of Summer 2016

 

by Maryssa Beale

Summer is right around the corner and All That Junk has the ultimate playlist for you to enjoy all summer long.

1. The Internet- Get Away

This soul band is known more for its members Syd tha Kid and Matt Martains who are apart of the rap collective Odd Future but this album serves as a reminder that they should be known for more than being apart of Tyler the Creator’s squad.

2. Alicia Keys- In Common

This girl continues her streak of putting out songs that are on fire. If this song is an indicator of the direction her new album will follow then we can’t wait for the rest of the album to be released.

3. Ariana Grande- Side by Side (featuring Nicki Minaj)

Baby Mariah strikes again. Dangerous Woman is a strong album filled with numerous tracks that could easily be on this list including Let Me Love You featuring a verse from Lil’ Wayne. However nothing can top a great feature from Nicki.

4. Christine and the Queens- iT

I can’t think of catchier lyrics that deal with gender identity than the ones you’ll be singing along with in this song. Released a year ago this song was thrown into popularity after being featured in a recent episode of Girls.

5. Miike Snow- Genghis Khan

Comparing your jealously to a ruthless Mongolian warrior and emperor is extreme but as long as long Miike Snow sticks to singing instead of conquering we should be fine.

6. KAYTRANADA- VIVID DREAMS

KAYTRANADA’s debut album, 99.9%, is an accurate title for an album that encompasses a blend of almost every genre. This is our favorite song off the album but every track is worth a listen.

7. Flume- Never Be Like You (Disclosure Remix)

How does one improve upon a Flume track? Add a remix by one of the hottest DJ duo’s out there right now.

8. Pools- Blue

No playlist is complete without a song that doesn’t let you chill and catch your breath for a bit.

9. Santigold- Who Be Lovin’ Me (featuring ILOVEMAKONNEN)

The video for this track was shot during Santigold’s set at Jay-Z’s Made in America festival. The visuals and the song are just pure joy.

10. Rihanna- Consideration

Rihanna‘s Anti is considered to be her best album yet. This track won’t get as much play as Work but it’s her opening track and our closer for a reason.

Panda by Desiigner
