I think it is pretty fair to say that Washed Out’s ‘Within and Without’ soundtracked a majority of the Summer of 2011. With the the sunshine and longer days right around the corner, I’m pretty sure we may just have found our band of the Summer for 2012. Summer Heart (appropriately named I should add) is the solo project of Sweden’s David Alexander. Beginning in 2009, he just dropped his first album “About A Feeling” on April 25th and we think this guy has an extremely bright future.
A blend of electronic lo-fi sunset summer bliss, this record recommended by our music nerd friend Sarah (thank you Sarah), is exactly what I was looking for to compliment my ambient but driven need to exist in the realm of music and life. “About A Feeling” is exactly where I want to be right now, promising greener pastures and sun-kissed souls. If beats, remixes and electronically driven up-tempo tracks are my Yin, this is my Yang. The perfect harmony of oneness and progression, this one will be on rotation for awhile. Damn…this one is GOOD. Summer Heart…I heart you.
