Really digging this album, but Wildheart is going to be in my system ALL SUMMER. For that reason alone, it's my AOTW.

I think it's really good - a nice surprise for summer drivin'.

The site is clearly being paid by Jepson's reps. It's annoying and obvious.

Oh, and JOY. Most of these songs lack that certain sense of summertime joy that makes a summer hit. A bunch of downers this year, jeez.

The thing that all of these songs are missing, and that really MAKES a summer jam, is a hard, clear-cut singalong chorus. Which is weird, because all of these songs have choruses, but none of them seem to have a memorable, inescapable hook like "Fancy" or "Call Me Maybe." That said, my choice would be the Jamie XX song, but the best option on here is Jason Derulo, which is a surprisingly good tune. Another missing option is Miguel, which is full of jamz. Also, that Nikki Minaj song is godawful. https://media0.giphy.com/media/wRIScWCYyNjFK/200_s.gif

Yea this album is pretty awesome. I can just double up on this one and Hop Along's recent album and just feel the female badassery for days on end. Leon Bridges is good too.

Saw the name Gillian Welch and immediately thought "This better be goddamn 'Revelator.'" Was not disappointed. Also, man I love Jenn Wasner.

Ok someone needs to explain to me why that pic didn't work. Is it no longer just posting the image url, because that's what it used to be, no?

Modest Mouse? JK we all know that's true, but you're talking about Sleater-Kinney. Which is also true. This is all because Built to Spill is one of our most under-appreciated artists. It's just the way it is.

I'll try this reply thing again. Anyone else noticing that SG refreshes midway through a reply and redirects to a regular post? No? Well anyways, yes, I found that East India Youth album to be pretty disappointing. I couldn't get through more than a few tracks.

Goddammit, this is the second time this week this has happened. Not sure why, but it's really annoying.

Oh my god, yes. I couldn't get through more than 4 songs on the new East India Youth album. Something about it was so grating to me.

Great list, but missing a few really good albums by... Lower Dens Alabama Shakes Built to Spill Braids Lady Lamb the Beekeeper Sun Kil Moon Leon Bridges OK, more than a few. Take a look at that list and tell me they don't deserve to be on there though!
