Listen to the Noise Pop New Music mix for July 2013, featuring Washed Out, Mets, Jagwar Ma, Calexico, MIA, and more.
Maybe it's the record high temperatures or the long weekend, but we're feeling a little distracted. Thoughts of being poolside or at the beach are taking up too much space in our heads for us to get any work done. So we've decided to feed these wandering thoughts with some great additions to your summer playlists. From Washed Out to jj, we're playing new tracks that are sure to convince you that, "it's really hot out" is a totally legitimate excuse for skipping work.
