New Matthew Dear LP

Maybe it's the sweaty summer days, or maybe it's just my mood lately but I've been rocking the dance music a lot this summer. Needless to say I've been obsessed with the stuff Robyn has put out lately but I'm looking forward to hearing the new one from Matthew Dear tomorrow. I was kind of late to the party on Matthew Dear but my old roommate loved him. I'm terrible at all of the sub-genres of electronic music so I'll let you decide for yourself what you want to categorize his sound as. Or you could go with what his Wiki entry says.

I have to include this remix, as I was obsessed with the XX all winter/spring.

If you're not feeling the electronic music tomorrow you can get your sensitive singer-songwriter on with new releases from both David Gray and Ray LaMontagne. Personally I save music like that for the winter but there's no reason you can't buy it now and listen to it when the weather cools off.
