This week’s track is Calypso by Van She, off of Idea of Happiness. This is the first album and first track from this Australian synthpop band, and the entire album has a summer-y, island feel to it. Calypso, as you might guess from the name, truly embodies that island, steel drum sound with a ton of synth thrown in for good measure. It’s a fun and poppy album and this week’s track gives a good sample of the album’s general texture .
This week’s track is Everything by Kaskade off of a bunch of stuff, but for the sake of track of the week, Hed Kandi Beach House 49. It’s been a while since I’ve been posting laid back house tracks and the last few months of picks have been very dance-y, either indie or electro. After hearing amazing house music play at every club and cafe in Ibiza last week, I’m back on a house music tear. This track, Everything, is an easy and fun, yet laid back, house track. Simple four on the floor dump, breezy guitars and floaty vocals. It’s all the kind of stuff summers in the sun are be made from.
