The end of summer is for dreaming about what's coming next...here are some tracks to listen to when you wake up with the sunset.
Whether you find yourself running through a bright, city-lit oasis or spending a solitary day with the ocean waves, don't you feel in love with summer?
Listen to Kero Kero Bonito's new single, "Forever Summer Holiday", which was released Friday with a music video promoting the Japanese Edition of Bonito Generation, KKB's second studio album, due for release on 12 July 2017.

MILO @ THE GEFFEN CONTEMPORARY IN LA, 5/15
Occasional mentions of his Magic the Gathering skills and his deceased brother, Rob, formulate sad, nerdy, and articulate lines over calm and collected beats; but at his first show in Los Angeles in years, Milo was undoubtedly alive.
It's almost June my friends! To me, this means a good mix of beats and soft instrumentals, which I've compiled in this playlist I made for a hometown friend. It's all Japanese from a variety of genres, including math rock by Toe and dreamy, bright whisper rap by Daoko. It's all for driving around with your pals into the sunset.

MITSKI @ THE GLASS HOUSE IN POMONA, 4/20
After Mitski, an alternative rock artist from New York, closed her performance at the Glass House in Pomona upon completing her encore, the calm yet pressed crowd began to shout "One more song, one more song," until the stage lights ultimately dimmed and the house music switched on. It was a rarely heard, an audience passionately requesting a second encore after the artist had already left the stage and returned once more.
