Deap Vally's Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwardsmay have met in Los Angeles, Calif. at a crochet class, but that doesn't mean they don't know their way around rock 'n' roll. The duo—with Troy on guitar/vocals and Edwards on the drums—have been oft compared to Babes in Toyland, Heart, L7 and they're living up to those descriptors.
Troy and Edwards have put together their ultimate Sounds of Summer playlist exclusively for PureVolume. Check it out below.
The Smiths — "Half a Person"
This song is best listened to on a summer road trip, windows rolled down, sun setting, hair blowing in the wind.
Drenge — "People in Love Make Me Feel Yuck"
We toured with Drenge—they are our brethren. They're a great fucking band and this is a killer tune.
Tinariwen — "Imidiwan Ma Tenam"
Listening to this song while laying in the sun is a euphoric experience.
Tame Impala — "Elephant"
This song is probably on most people's summer playlist, and it should be. It's one of the grooviest tunes I've ever heard.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club — "Ain't No Easy Way"
'Cuz it's always the season for BRMC.
The Knife — "Heartbeats"
I will never grow tired of this song. The percussion has a Caribbean influence, which reminds me of being on a cruise when I was a kid.
Screamin' Jay Hawkins — "I Put a Spell on You"
This slow, swampy, sexy tune goes perfect with a balmy summer night by the pool.
Kurt Vile — "Girl Called Alex"
This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra — "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)"
For its title alone this song is on my summer playlist.
Safety Orange — "State of Where I Am"
This is my brother's band. Listening to it while I'm on the road makes me happy because it reminds me of home.
