I set out to make a summer playlist since we're right in the middle of my favorite time of year but I couldn't find any positive summer-themed tunes. I guess that says something about the French! I took a more obtuse angle on the summer concept and chose songs with the right vibe. This would be a nice beach visit soundtrack complete with pop head-bobbers, harmonious psych-folk, lee hazelwood-penned gypsy echo beach boppers and floaty erotic love jams. What more could you ask for really?
