These are some chilled out tracks for sweltering, sweaty summer days when it’s so hot all you want to do is strip to your undies, stand in front of a fan, and think winter thoughts. They may not all be about summer heat and avoiding it, but they all should put you in a cool frame of mind. So grab a bag of frozen peas for your neck ‘cause you’re going to need that ice for a frosty adult beverage to fully enjoy these chill tunes.
