Here’s your summer soundtrack

If you’re a subscriber and looking for some fantasy content, today’s your day because we will be posting our entire magazine online by day’s end. So yesterday, I took 10 minutes away from my last-minute tweaks to compile yet another music list.

I just don’t get how people cannot stay up with current music and choose to listen to the same stuff over and over again – or not listen to anything at all. I personally think the new music out today is pretty good, although I must admit I’m not very hard to please. But there’s nothing like hearing a brand new song, liking it, and then listening to it repeatedly while it’s still fresh and new, but at the same time familiar.
