Summer Hymns, You Need Some Luvv

Voice Brother and Sister by Summer Hymns

Really, I don't think I've ever been more thankful that I started this project. Because otherwise I simply never would've known about Summer Hymns, or that I needed to hear them. As the bulk of their good music happened to take place before 2003 (and they haven't released anything new in four years), I might have gone my entire life without ever hearing about them, as I'm sure a lot of other people will.

Summer Hymns, you really need some luvv.

The first half of the album is probably the stronger half, with tracks like "Beginning To See" and "Mr. Brewer (Cackle, Cackle)". "New Underdressment" would be the center of the album, a long 7 minutes of psychedelic folk.

What exactly makes them so good? Really not much. They're just enjoyable; while other psychedelic folk bands focus on making layers upon layers of noise, Summer Hymns doesn't sacrifice happy and warm music for the genre. And if you're really curious, just ask Pitchfork, they've loved Summer Hymn's first three albums.

Hm, well then I might just have to give this a listen. Sounds like good material for my "It's Late" playlist :P
