As we careen wildly towards the end of July, I do not think it is too early to name a Song of the Summer of 2019. New songs released in August? Sorry, should have come to summer on time. So here we go with our 3 nominees for 2019 Song of the Summer.
My NMFOR posts have so far focused on newer musical talents. Not in this post. These are established talents that are finally providing us some welcome new music.
First up is Vampire Weekend. Six years since their last record. How does it take so long to make a record album? C’mon, you’re musicians. Make more music.
Father of the Bride is their upcoming release this Spring, and Harmony Hall is a single released from that album. I’m not sure that Harmony Hall is worth a six year wait, but it is a great tune. Take a listen.
Welcome back Vampires. Harmony Hall definitely doesn’t suck.
What does is the new single called Salvation from the Strumbellas.
