Summerbaby, show me the town.

Hello readers of Lisa’s blog, nice too e-meet you. I’m Caitlyn, recordsLisa’s longtime friend and self-appointed music mentor. If this blog was a movie, Lisa would be the director, producer, writer, lead actor, costume designer, location scout, so on and so forth. But I’m quite positive she would let me be in charge of the soundtrack, which is about all the responsibility I could handle anyways. I take this role pretty darn seriously, because let’s be honest, life is far too short to listen to Katy Perry (Lisa will totally debate me on this one, but I’ll tell her to shut up and turn up LCD Soundsystem).

I mused on what kind of playlist I would create for my inaugural contribution, and as I live in Southern California, immersed in sunshine and pavement and heat waves and beach cities, I couldn’t escape the inevitable. This is going to be “Just Another Summertime Playlist” playlist, two thousand and thirteen edition. If you’ve been vaguely conscious for any of 2013, you probably know that it has been one hell of a year for new music releases. Whether it’s a musical juggernaut releasing a solid new album (Vampire Weekend, The National, forย god sakesย Daft Punk), or relatively new bands releasing albums that leave you begging for more (Cayucas, Savages), 2013 is one for the record(store) books. ย So here are some sunshine jams, from the best that 2013 has to offer (so far):
