Music In The Summer

23 Jun

It is officially summer, and it’s time to search for the perfect song of the season.

Jordan Hull’s “In the Summer” is jangly folk pop, with a breezy air and just enough sauciness to make it a must on any summer playlist.

Though mostly a guitar centric song, what sounds like a glockenspiel helps to add a whimsy, almost calypso feel, to a tune essentially about making love.

Lyrics that could come off as just downright offensive and blunt such as “slip off your slacks and slap on the sleaze” instead convey the playfulness of young love.

In the wrong hands “In the Summer” could be a crude mess, but with Hull’s Dylan-esque vibe circa “Positively 4th Street” it’s a little slice of sun kissed music heaven.

-Enjoy the ultra hipster live version as a comparison!
