Summer Essentials: June Edition

 by Maddi Frick

June has officially arrived which means summer is officially here, although the weather can't seem to make up its mind.  Summer means a change of clothes, eating habits, and most importantly, the music you listen to.  I'm ready for some care-free pop beats and feel-good acoustic sounds from artists I have yet to discover.  Here's a collection of new music to look forward to over these (hopefully) warm summer months.

Coldplay - Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
Releasing June 3rd, this single by the infamous British band will hopefully tide you over until their 5th album release sometime in the fall of 2011.

Sondre Lerche - Sondre Lerche
The Norwegian's self- titled 6th album releasing on June 7th will promise some heartfelt beats, something you'll want to check out especially considering he recently played in Minnesota, in a barn in Wrenshall.(Other albums coming out this day include Jessica 6, Arctic Monkeys, Duncan Sheik, and The Rosebuds.)

Vetiver - The Errant Charm
The American folk band, who's toured with Devendra Banhart, will release their new album June 14th (the same day as Owl City's new release) through the label Sub Pop.

Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver
The sometimes-claimed-by-Minnesota Wisconsinite will release his doubly self-titled album June 21st.  This is only his second album, however he's been collaborating with many other artists, notably Kanye West.  (Other albums coming out the same day from LMFAO, Pitbull,  Lil Wayne, and YACHT.)
