It's so hot that all I want to do is sprawl out in the middle of the floor and listen to music until I pass out for an afternoon nap. These songs should do the trick, if I don't keep myself awake by humming along.

"You Hear Colours" is my favorite jam of the year. "1901" is close behind. The end of "Epilepsy is Dancing" will most certainly make you cry.

My list is comprised of some older tracks, many of which I had never heard before. I compiled it one evening by starting with TV on The Radio and clicking 'I like this' on the music player whenever I ran across something interesting.

Guest Picks: culturebully.com

Plan A: Enjoy the playlist which was chosen to reflect some of those rock-type acts that have been featured on Culture Bully in the past two years or so. Plan B: Refuse to listen to the music, and amuse yourself with a goof: "John Kerry walks into a bar. The bartender says, 'Why the long face?'" Plan C: Compromise and enjoy both. -Chris, Culture Bully

Ivy

I impart these songs to you as I would if I was on the cover of Sonic Youth's "Goo"--I'd saunter by all murderous and leather-jacket clad, my sister's boyfriend on my arm, both of us ensconced in a cloud of cigarette smoke. I'd reach into the lining of my jacket and pull out a burnt CD, chuck it at you all "FUCK YOU" and wink, "sample my wares". I don't know. These songs just make me feel that cool.

My substitution for coffee. A caffeine-free way to jolt start your morning, afternoon, or evening. But don't be mistaken, these songs aren't any less addicting than that cappuccino you drink every day.
