Sounds Of Summer 2017

by Maryssa Beale

It’s that time of the year again. All That Junk‘s Official Sounds of Summer playlist is here to kick this season off right.

1. Calvin Harris- Slide (featuring Migos and Frank Ocean)

This list isn’t a ranking but there is no better place for this song than at the number one spot. It’s our pick for the for this year’s song of the summer.

2. Beth Ditto- Savior Faire

A solo album from Gossip‘s lead singer has probably been a longtime coming and we’re extremely grateful that it has finally arrived. A good piece of advice would be to give the whole album a listen.

3. Drake- Passionfruit

This is Drake’s first solo feature on our Sounds of Summer playlist and it is well deserved. Drake doesn’t just have one of the best song’s this summer but a song EVERY summer.

4. Miley Cyrus- Malibu

Yes, Miley’s return to country-pop is not without controversy. However, this song is legit and it’s good to see her go back to her roots. It’s less awkward and uncomfortable for all of us.

5. Three Rings- Grizzly Bear

Everyone’s favorite Brooklyn band returns with another chill track. This song is refreshing, original, and somehow still sounds like their classics. A good teaser until the album drops later this year.

6. Sylvan Esso- Die Young

This song and a strong second album prove that the sophmore slump isn’t applicable to every band with a succusful debut.

7. Kygo- It Ain’t Me (Featuring Selena Gomez)

Selena been laying low for the past few months but this song is a return to form. Hopefully its a sign of more tracks to come.

8. Sampha- Blood on Me

The best way to listen to this song is live. We highly recommend checking him out next time he’s in your town.

9. Lorde- Green Light

Lorde is back and dropping great hits like she hasn’t been gone for years. Welcome back and please don’t leave us again.

10. SZA- Drew Barrymore

All you need to know is that this song is great and Drew Barrymore makes a brief cameo in the video which means you should check it out sooner rather than later.

Honorable Mentions

Humble by Kendrick Lamar
Everything Now by Arcade Fire
Still Beating by Mac DemMarco

Special Honorable Mention

Deez Hands (Featuring Quinta B) by Swizzymack

You may recognize Quinta from Buzzfeed or her viral meme’s on the internet but this song (first launched as a meme) proves that she is more than an internet sensation.
