Four out of five indie-snobs agree that if you are really into music and wear your skinny pants as tight as you possibly can, you can listen to the coolest and most exclusive music at any moment, regardless of the time of day, time of year, or temperature. Hold onto your faux Buddy Holly glasses, little hipsters, because that just doesn't fly for me. If it's cold and melancholy, i'm going to listen to Bon Iver. If it's road trip time, i'm rocking out to something i can sing to loudly. And now that it's officially summer time, i can't quit listening to The Drums.

Who Are They: The New York via Florida band was originally just for fun, but now last September released their EP Summertime and have gotten a lot of attention. Their music is a cross between The Beach Boys and 80s new wave ... all wrapped up in a big chew bubble gum pop sound that's super catchy and just a lot of fun. You might have heard something like them before, but when you play that first track and let the bright sunshine popsicle happiness flood your car ... who cares?
