Sounds of Summer 2017

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.

Sounds of Summer

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.

Honorable Mentions

Cheap Thrills by Sia

Panda by Desiigner

This is What You Came For by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna

One Dance by Drake

Champagne Problems by Nick Jonas
