Summer Spectacular 2013
by Rob Harvilla | May 13, 2013
It is time once again to the hit the pool, the beach, the open road, the boat, the big-time rock-festival circuit, the family reunion, the block party, and so on and so forth. It's summer. It's awesome. And you need a soundtrack. Tons of soundtracks, in fact. And so here we go deep with all the tunes you'll need, from Latin barbecue essentials to vintage dub reveries (don't miss that one), from current killer fests (the Roots Picnic is wild) to a spin through the lineups of Lollapaloozas past. From summery disco to car-obsessed rap, from "boat country" to Christian road-trip anthems, we've collected it all for you. Check back all week, and in fact all summer, for new playlists, album guides and more -- and have fun out there.
