Summer is here once more, and to celebrate this season that everyone loves, here's a playlist you can listen to while relaxing and getting your drinks on by the beach with your buddies.
The sun was glaring from high up in the sky, the waves were crashing,
and I was just sitting there, beer in hand, taking it all in. It’s funny
because in the summer there’s always a certain euphoria that can only present
itself in this season, and yet, soaking in all this, everything feels so still.
Or at least you hope it was—just so you can keep it longer. But the day is
young, and so are you, and in this season when everything’s in full bloom, it
feels as if anything can happen. As Fitzgerald said in The Great Gatsby, there is a familiar conviction that life was beginning all over again with the summer.

If there's another thing that indie electronic rock band Passion Pit is good at aside from making darn good music, it's making darn good music videos out of them. As a Valentines treat, the band released this official music video of Carried Away featuring Passion Pit's front man Michael Angelakos and the lovely actress, Sophia Bush. The video is a typical love story--a whirlwind romance between two people who fight as much as they are crazy for each other. At the end though, in the shade of the cacophony that is their relationship, the two find themselves buried underneath the rubble of all the harsh words they've ever thrown at each other. Literally.

As a Valentines special, Vogue released a series of love songs for everyday of February leading up to the fourteenth. One of the artists who recorded with them is Jonny Pierce of The Drums, doing a stripped down version of a song from his forthcoming solo album to be released this year. He also took to his official Facebook page to announce that The Drums will be releasing their third album soon, saying: "oh and to clarify- The Drums are going STRONG. 3rd album starting soon. It will be grand." But whether this statement is his way of answering questions about Connor Hanwick leaving the band, we have yet to find out. I guess we all have to wait for the album to come out and see for ourselves.

Launching their debut album "Out of the Floodways and Into Your Homes" last February 2nd, the members of Identikit must be on pins and needles still with the good turn-out at the event. People danced, sang along with sweet, sweet Sandy and cheered. With the publicity and attention the band has been getting from the industry prior to the event, there was a lot of anticipation on how their first full-length album would fare. Their EP Saturday Morning Chemistry was named Best EP in 2011, and features about the band were here and there, but would the long-awaited album live up to the hype?
