I don't know if this is the right place to open this thread, but I'll try. I have imagined this thread as a place for discussion of our favourite Summer albums (the ones that sound summery, that came out in Summer, or the ones you connect to Summer for any of the reasons). Also, I really like music that sounds summery, so I see this as a good way of finding new music. Teenage Dream, of course, comes as a perfect example and one of the most obvious choices. I think that the singles completely rulled the Summer of 2010., only to top it with a whole album at the end of Summer. I remember that Teenage Dream (the single) came out on my birthday and I was exhilarated to hear something that amazing, and it is still my favourite Katy's song. Lady GaGa's The Fame is also a good example, in my opinion, especially tracks like Eh Eh and Summerboy. Ultraviolence, Solange - Sol-Angel & The Hadley St. Dreams, Amerie - All I Have/Because I Love It, Goldfrapp - Black Cherry, Empire Of The Sun - Ice On The Dune, even The Black Eyed Peas - The E.N.D... just a few example of some of my favourites. I also love music in the vein of Best Coast, Beach Fossils, Beach House and Wavves, and if anyone has something similar to recommend, I'd appreciate it.
