Arsonist For Hire - SHOPFIRES

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 Arsonit For Hire is a sweet indie jangle slash guitar pop from the creative British artist Neil Hill (AKA SHOPFIRES) who claims to record their DIY projects on a cheap laptop. I don’t care what tools and gadgets you use, you beautiful spirited artist. Your music sounds alive and perfect for summer days this June. 

Arsonit For Hire is the third track from Shopfires’ latest project, Holding On To Let Go, which will soon be released (July 9). Give it a spin and give the artist a shoutout if you enjoy their creations like I did!

の​ん​き​な​ア​フ​タ​ヌ​ー​ン (Carefree Afternoon) - djfunnycat

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 Kick your feet up and enjoy Carefree Afternoon’s Lofi pop vibes on your summer playlist. This cute hip-hop-type instrumental song is an experimental project from djfunnycat (GenX Records) that’s great for studying and working with. 

According to the artist, their collection is entirely created with experimental help from AI, which turned out to be great in my opinion! と​あ​る​夏​の​日 (One Summer Night) and Blue Sky are two of the other songs they released in June 2024 that are clearly meant for summer. 

Give them a listen and support the artist if you like what they do!

Joyful Noise - Jake Lionheart

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 Joyful Noise is another instrumental on this summer’s essential songs list by the Cali-based artist who calls their lovely beats “noises.”

This is the first track of Jake Lionheart’s latest experimental hip-hop slash folktronica album, While There's Still Hope Left, a beautiful auditory experience that unfolds like an exciting tale. Start your summer with the hopeful “noises” of Jake Lionheart and support the artist if you enjoy their music in one of the channels below!

Moonbeams - Nowhere Nocturne

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 Moonbeams is a lively alternative indie rock song by the Virginia-based producer and instrumentalist creative, Nowhere Nocturne (AKA Cashby). Picking only one song from the album Nowhere Nocturne was a tough task because if chill summer night cruises under the moonlight were musically incarnated, it’d sound very much like this. 

The lyrics are poetic and deep, the guitar is lovely, and the vocals are loud and alive. Blast Moonbeams on your road trips for some of that mid-2010s indie rock nostalgia and let Nowhere Nocturne be your summer-time companion.

Whomst - Valeria Radchenko

This house bop is part of a 2-track collection with the same name, both of which have already found their spots on my summer playlist. Stream Whomst on one of the platforms linked below and show the artist some love if you enjoy their creations!

Never Ending - Tarnish

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 What better time to re-live the emo punk-rock era than summer 2024, and what better way of doing it than playing Tarnish’s latest album, Rosemont, on repeat? 

Never Ending is the first track on this Cali-based band’s latest album, a loud alternative rock anthem that’ll have you moving to the beat in no time. This one is a perfect pick for a pumped-up punk-rock summer day when you feel like letting your inner emo roam free.

Show them some love if you enjoy what they do!

Wooden Soldiers - Demmers

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 Bring a dose of dark post-punk to your summer playlist this June with the New Jersey-based band Demmers’ Wooden Soldiers. Vocalist Jerad Mione delivers lyrics that hint at the futility of dreams and the ever-present feeling of being trapped, but The Wooden Soldiers isn’t all gloomy. It’s a flicker of defiance in the music, a sense of pushing forward despite the odds (a sentiment I’m sure many of you can relate to).

This is the perfect soundtrack for those long summer nights that feel equal parts melancholic and electric. Give the album (titled Fears and Shadows) a listen and enjoy the band’s brilliant urban heat creation.

The Ending of the World - Bryan Odeen

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 The Ending of the World is a cute, acoustic folk-pop tune that can make any summer day better with its loving energy. Bryan Odeen is a Minneapolis-based artist who describes himself as “an old soul in a modern world” whose calming aura has me agreeing with him.

The Ending of the World is the first track of the artist’s latest album called A Million Burning Suns, a great addition to any summer playlist with chill vibes.

Hold Me - BRËZ

Article photo - Summer Tunes for Every Mood: An Eclectic Compilation ~ June 2024 I’ve always believed that no genre or sub-genre conveys summer as much as R&B does, and Hold Me is here to prove me right. This is a chill, lover-boy type tune with BRËZ’s velvet vocals gliding on the beat.

Hold Me is part of this Floridan artist’s latest contemporary R&B album titled REFLECTIONS. This is a collection that, according to BRËZ, portrays his feelings and journey through life and love in their purest form (not even mixed or mastered). Check REFLECTIONS out and you’ll find at least a favorite or two if you’re a Souls fan.

Hit play and listen as you’re washed over with endless sunshine and good vibes, a perfect fit for the soon-to-come scorching hot days!
