The Canadian quintet picks three songs they'll have on repeat

Let the heated “song of the summer” debate begin—and leave us out of it. Sure, we’ll surrender to some of the Auto-Tuned Top 40 confections being shoved down our throats this season. But we’ll mostly be listening to awesome new albums from some of our fave artists -- and, in an act of meta-coolness, listening to the music they’ll be listening to. To start, we asked Young Galaxy to reveal their soundtrack.

For a dose of top-down, navelgazing, dream-pop, grab the Canadian quintet's new record, Ultramarine (out now). And watch the video for Young Galaxy's "Fall For You" below:

Young Galaxy then recommends Jagwar Ma: “This Australian dance-rock band sound euphoric, absorbed in the rush of the music they make."

Watch the video for "The Throw":

OK, so she’ll rule the airwaves all summer. But really, who can resist RiRi? As Young Galaxy explains: "Who can look you in the eyes and say they don’t gush every time they hear ‘Stay’?”Watch the video below:

"Factory Floor makes intense, visceral music—it has punk energy but is designed for the dance floor. Check out their recent single, ‘Fall Back.’”
