Summer is officially here! To celebrate this long-awaited moment, we offer you a selection of 5 albums that will make your summer unforgettable. Don’t thank us folks, just enjoy.
Sketches of Spain – Miles Davis (1960)
Miles Davis is the kind of musical genius that will take you through every possible emotion. His album Sketches of Spain is a tribute to those warm and calm summer nights one experiences with a glass of red wine comfortably in hand. Preferably a San Giovese.
Suggested Song: Concerto de Aranjuez
L’Aventura – Sébastien Tellier (2014)
The French ‘free electron’ Tellier travelled across Brazil for months. The result of this brought us a mystical, verdant and tender album that will delight your ears and make you move your body on the beach.
Suggested Song: Love
Eponym album – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (2013)
Are you going on a road trip with friends? Yep. Are you looking for some good music to kill time while hitting the road? Yeah! Search no more, for you have just found what you need: love, joy, and heaps of sunsets.
Suggested Song: Better Days
Based on a True Story – Fat Freddy’s Drop (2005)
B.O.A.T.S is the kind of album you want to listen to when stargazing with your loved one. A perfect balance of flow and lyrics.

So…How’s your girl? – Handsome Boy Modelling School (1999)
Just because you’re on holidays it doesn’t mean you should neglect your street cred’.
