Warm Soda continues to evoke teenage fantasy with tasty new LP.

Warm_sodaSymbolic Dream is the ex-Oakland band’s first record since songwriter, singer and guitar player Matthew Melton moved to Austin in 2014. Regardless of location, his warm confectionary power-pop hasn’t changed. With catchy hooks and sing-along choruses aplenty, Warm Soda’s fizzy energy has yet to go flat. –Michelle Solomon

Best Coast return with a heavier, more polished sound on this sonic love letter to their home state (and the state of mind it inspires).

Best_CoastThis time around, the guitars are crunchier, the drums more pounding and Bethany Cosentino’s vocals more commanding. California Nights borrows liberally from ‘90s alt-rock, fusing squalls of shoegaze swirl to the group’s warm, fuzzy jangle. –Andee Connors

Get Em While They’re Hot – A Dozen Picks for 2015’s Song of the Summer

The one you listen to with the windows down cruising down the highway, or that’s blaring as you cannonball into the deep end.  It’s the thing that years from now can transport you back to THIS summer.  Don’t believe us?  We dare you to blast Summer Hits of the 90s and not be transported to a time of ill-advised fashion but admittedly awesome music.
