Here’s a song that I discovered on Spotify. Just a quick word about it, if your in the UK (and a few other places in Western Europe) you can enjoy Spotify for free. It’s a great completely legal service that allows you to stream a huge library of music for free as many times as you wish, and due to it’s underlying technology the stream starts instantly with virtually no buffering time at all. The catch is you apparently have to listen to an advert every now and then but I have been using the service on and off for a while now and the only ads I’ve come across are simple banner ones which aren’t intrusive at all. I’m thinking that this program would be perfect for parties where people can do quick search and collaboratively create playlists.

Anywho, enough of that plug. This track is called Run To Your Grave (video above) which I found on Pitchfork’s Best 100 Tracks of 2008 playlist (click the link to open the playlist in Spotify once installed). I don’t know anything about the artist as I haven’t had the chance to check them out further but this track is positively brimming with joy and elation. It has a catchy melody and the shrill vocals sung by several of the band members give an airy, organic sound to the delivery. Be sure to check it out for some summery goodness now that the season is almost upon us.
