What’s your summer album?
Heidi and I asked ourselves this question yesterday and were surprised to discover that we have the same one!
Bloom by Beach House. My favorite song on the record is "Other People," but I like all of them. This summer, I’ve been listening to this dream-pop duo when I wake up, when I walk to and from work, when I drive, when I cook, when I do crunches at the gym… And I’m still not sick of it.
Tell us what music you’re jamming out to this summer. Perhaps there will be a favorite album for Fresh Air listeners?
Have a great weekend! We at Fresh Air encourage all of you to follow this example while summer’s still around.
