Of course, the Beach Boys are way up there, but some others? I love "Summertime Thing" by Chuck Prophet. "Ants on the Melon" by the Gourds is another great one.

What do you think of Automato?

Randy Newman, Sail Away
Angels of Light, How I Loved You
Built to Spill, Perfect From Now On and There's Nothing Wrong with Love
the Beatles, White Album side 2 of LP 1 and side 1 of LP 2 ("Martha My Dear" through "Long Long Long")
Yo La Tengo, I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
Jolie Holland, Catalpa
XTC, English Settlement

At the moment, "Green Arrow" by Yo La Tengo. It's like the post-party summer anthem of my life.

Jean Grae is a must-have. Possibly the best female emcee in the game today. Here's hoping she doesn't walk away from it (rumor has it she's pretty disenchanted with the entire thing).

Jean Grae is one of the best emcees in hip hop, period. The Bootleg... is an amazing EP.

fallow...I like the Automoto CD but it doesn't blow me away (at least not yet). Not as successful at live band hip hop as the Roots in my opinion.

Yeah, it's the wrong week, but I don't care...

They Might Be Giants - The Spine
U2 - The Joshua Tree
Whiskeytown - Faithless Street
Mozart's Violin Concertos Nos. 1, 2, & 3
The Thrills - So Much For The City

AOTD (summer songs): gosh, too many to even think about. Agreed that the Beach Boys have ex officio status in this category. I always thought that Fountains of Wayne's first two albums had very summer-y vibes to them. "The Senator's Daughter," off Utopia Parkway, has a great end-of-summer vibe to it.

Gdrlv, how's the Old 97's? (Apologies if you answered this in another thread...)

no idea on release. what i have are 19 untitled tracks that apparently leaked from the studio. i'm sure you can find them from the typical p2p sources.
