As we enter the waning days of summer, let’s pause and take a moment to appreciate one of the finer things about summertime – ice cream.

Salted caramel ice cream is a delightful taste sensation and similarly, the song “Salted Caramel Ice Cream” by English electronic group Metronomy is also a delight to the senses. Enjoy.

Song Of The Day: Sleeper – More Than I Do

When Britpoppers Sleeper returned this year with a new album, it was a welcome return for fans of the band’s ’90s output. And in naming their first release in over 20 years The Modern Age, the band seemed to be acknowledging that this was the start of a new chapter in their career, albeit one that also picks up from where they left off in many ways.

“More Than I Do”, the latest single off the new album, proves that modern Sleeper fits in quite nicely alongside the classic Sleeper tracks. Check out the video for “More Than I Do” below.

Song Of The Day: Drugdealer (feat. Weyes Blood) – Honey

Drugdealer is the project of L.A.-based musician Michael Collins, who makes music that is heavily indebted to the sounds of the 1970s, with soft rock, psychedelia, and the singer-songwriters of that era all showing up as sonic touchstones in Drugdealer’s sophomore album Raw Honey.

“Honey” stands out as one of the highlights of the album, with Collins continuing his collaboration with Weyes Blood‘s Natalie Mering that started with “Suddenly” off of Drugdealer’s debut The End Of Comedy.

The ’70s references come through pretty clearly in this track, with Mering’s Karen Carpenter-esque delivery and some nice George Harrison inspired guitar flourishes hearkening back to the sounds of retro AM radio gold. Check it out.

Song Of The Day: Molly Tuttle – Take The Journey

From the opening notes of Molly Tuttle‘s “Take The Journey”, one of the first things you notice is the impressive guitar picking – not a surprise when you take into account that Tuttle was named the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Guitar Player of the Year in 2017 and 2018 (the first woman to be awarded that honour) and that she’s been playing since she was 8 years old and performing live since she was 11. So yeah, she can play.

“Take The Journey” is taken from Tuttle’s debut full length album When You’re Ready, released on April 5 on Compass Records. Check out the video below:
