Song of the summer starts like summer itself, hopeful, exciting, and you can't wait for it to begin. Once it's here you dive in, listening to it obsessively and it gradually becomes your temporary anthem. Undoubtedly Blurred Lines was the pop song of the summer, but we're going to explore the songs that kept the indie blogosphere buzzing from June-August instead. This episode documents what the indie songs of the summer were for 2013. Each of these tracks have been blasting from parks and backyard barbecues all summer long, soundtracking the season. Enjoy!
