{PLAYLIST} best of august

How in the heck is it that summer is essentially over?? We're going to hold on as long as we can, but we are prettttty excited for September (um, hello: 2/3 of our birthdays, Freefest, and concerts on concerts on concerts, plus fall TV shows are back!!).

In true TIOJ fashion, this past month was a blur. In August, we:

Press play below for Kristen, Krista, and Stacey's favorite jams of August:

"Paris (Wallpaper Remix)" - Geographer
Best of August 2013 by this is our jam on GroovesharkThis beat-driven song is the perfect soundtrack for reminiscing our TIOJ vacay.
"Turn It Around" - Sub Focus feat. Kele Okereke
I cannot listen to this song enough -- so happy Sub Focus came on our radar.  
"Smile Big" - Leftover Cuties
I literally couldn't stop raving about this baller group after seeing them at Iota.
"Wildfire" - Frank Ocean feat. John Mayer
I think I can honestly say that this is the singularly most gorgeous thing I've heard in years.
"Hey Mami" - Sylvan Esso
Quite possibly my favorite song of the summer, made all the better after chatting with the band about this jam!
"Could It Be" - Charlie Worsham
Official winner of my award for cutest song ever.
"American Boy" - Estelle
True story: this was my ringtone after spending a summer in the UK.
"Magic" - Olympic Ayres
Expecting great great things from this indie pop band. So addicting. 
"Walkin' on the Devil's Backbone" - Ha Ha Tonka
Just that song title alone makes me love these boys.
"Crickets" - Drop City Yacht Club feat. Jeremiah
I'm a fan of these nerdy-ish rapping white boys.
"Wait For Me" - Kings of Leon
So glad these cuties are back and with great new music (who's surprised?).
"Boys of Summer" - Don Henley 
I have such a weird affection for this classic summer song (and all of its covers).
"Never Seen Such Good Things" - Devendra Banhart
"love, you're a strange fellow/won't you leave your mark on me"
"Dark Star" - Jaymes Young
Jaymes' entire album is everything. So sexy. So good.
"Restless Heart" - Matt Hires
Seeing Matt and his band perform this song was such a blast. (Stay tuned for our interview with him!!)

Want more? Listen to an extended version of this playlist on Spotify! And of course, stay tuned in September for fall jams, concerts and interviews, Freefest, and oh so much more!!
