Must Be Summer or Something
Written by Joanna on June 19, 2015
Hey, it’s Friday night! Which means I’m here again!
Summer’s just around the corner. Seriously, this Sunday marks the “official” first day of summer. Can you believe that? That being said, this mind-glowingly gorgeous weather combined combined with the resulting restlessness of house hunting and adventure having has left me with too much of a sunny attitude lately. I’m borderline spastic. So, here’s an hour of radical ladies influenced by that vintage surf rock reverb because, you know, it must be summer or something.

Philly’s Rachel Browne also does vocals and plays guitar in Brooklyn band Field Mouse. She was recently featured during a Philly-based She Shreds show and released a self-titled EP through Father/Daughter Records earlier this year.

Their new album, Gone by the Dawn, finally had a release date! Their new album will drop September 11th via Hardly Art (only one of my favorite labels). Catch them playing alongside Chastity Belt and The Shivas on July 17th at the Doug Fir Lounge.

Eskimeaux is the solo project of The Epoch‘s Gabrielle Smith. Her second album, O.K., was recently released on Double Double Whammy. She opens for Mitski and Elvis Depressedly at the Analog Cafe on July 28th.

Born and bred in my once-upon-a-time city of San Francisco, this all-girl four piece only came across my radar a few days ago. The verdict? New obsession. It’s was really tough to pick just one song from their EP, Dreamers. If you do anything tonight, and I mean anything, please please please hit up their bandcamp and stream the EP. Absolutely stellar work, ladies.
