Spring is the transition to summer from winter. Not too cold, not too hot. Iced coffee in the mornings, chai lattes at night. Heat lamps on bare legs, furry coats over cleavage and a scoop of ice cream in your hot chocolate. I am working on a good Spring Mix to drop next week, but in the meantime I wanted to share my SUMMER CAMP OBSESSION. This band sounds so dreamy, romantic, full of LONGING. And they sample 80’s teen flicks in their songs from our favorites Heathers, Sixteen Candles and Say Anything. What are you trying to do, kill me over here? They remind me a little bit of a Stars, 60’s girl groups, and I Am The World Trade Center getting tossed in a nostalgic, lo-fi blender. “Ghost Train” has been emailed and texted to all of my friends with the note “LISTEN OR DIE.” Their cover of “I Only Have Eyes For You” sounds like something you have to sing under a blanket with a flashlight. In a pillow fort. We all need to make more pillow forts. Put that on your checklist this spring/summer.
Thank you Summer Camp for bringing so much warmth and love to my once COLD, DEAD CORAZON.
