happy july! are you guys coordinating your plans for the 4th? i think we're going to play it low key and go to a baseball game and watch the fireworks after the game. i'm not feeling like battling huge crowds and traffic. i remember one year we went to watch fireworks at a local concert venue, and it took us close to two hours to get out of the parking lot afterwards. cue headache and road rage. but for some reason someone had a bucket of fried chicken in the trunk? so we ate it? the night was redeemed slightly.

let's get down to why we're really here. how about some tunes for these hot hot days? these songs will get you to and from the pool, no problem. put that sunblock on and your earbuds in and prepare to jam out. hey, summa! 

celeste : ezra vine

sideways : citizen cope

coming home : pete kilpatrick band

wild heart : great american canyon band

let me in : grouplove

some surprise : the cake sale

the garden you planted : sea wolf

noble heart : phox (seeing them play in chapel hill this month!)

without words : ray lamontagne

think of me : rose golan

wrap your arms around me : gareth dunlop

happy july!


  1. YES YES YES Citizen Cope!! And that Grouplove song! I have it on the Fault in our Stars soundtrack and cannot get enough. Another great month of music from you, my dear.

    Also. Fried Chicken Fourth sounds like a tradition you need to start. I love the 4th and cannot WAIT for friday! YAY MERICA!
