GRAE's Guide to Summer 2012: City Sounds

Nothing says summer like the perfect soundtrack. Here are all the elements you need to craft your summer playlist.

Yuna


Yuna ended up on my radar after she teamed up with Pharrell. I'm loving her self-titled debut album right now. It's just what you need to cool you down as the mercury rises.

Hot Track: Live Your Life




John Mayer


Mr. Mayer's latest album Born & Raised just sounds like Americana should. It's the perfect soundtrack for that summer road trip you've been meaning to take.

Hot Track: Shadow Days




ZZ Ward


If you follow the GRAE New York on
last.fm, you'll notice ZZ Ward my most-listened to artist right now. I love her sultry singer-songwriter vibe. ZZ's mixtape Eleven Roses is perfect as long days turn into even longer nights. Download it for free on Soundcloud.

Hot Track: Got It Bad




Robin Skouteris


I love a good mashup, especially when Robin Skouteris is involved. Yesterday Robin released his 6th album Reincarnation featuring snippets from Lana Del Rey, Nancy Sinatra, Radiohead, Lady GaGa, and more. Download links are up on Robin's Facebook page now: link

Hot Track: The Gang Bang Theory
