Playlist: The Boys of Summer

6.2.2014

By Jason Lamphier

Pop divas are great and all, but when it comes to premium cuts, this June is a total sausage fest.

Here, four dudes whose albums you should be listening to:


The U.K. Import

Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour (June 17)
Why: Because he’s basically the boy Adele. And you can’t afford him for your wedding.

The R&B Crooner
How to Dress Well, "What Is This Heart?” (June 24)
Why: Because the ’90s nostalgist (real name: Tom Krell) can sample the Velvet Underground’s “Heroin” and still sound like P.M. Dawn.

The Producer
Tomas Barfod, Love Me (June 10)
Why: Because the Danish dance maestro’s latest is the perfect soundtrack for PatrĂ³n shots and skinny-dipping. Plus, he wants you to love him.

The Legend
Morrissey, Vauxhall and I reissue (June 2)
Why: Because 20 years later it sounds just as gorgeously mopey. Plus, the more you ignore him...
