about

Sounds of Summer - A Sounds and Tones Compilation is a collection of tracks submitted from artists across the globe expanding on the theme of "Summer" in their music. This theme can be reflected in subject matter, the tempo, instrumentation, or even just the context in which they wrote the piece.

This album also marks the anniversary of our first compilation/release, It's a Pop Punk Kind of Summer, which came out in the summer of 2011. We are celebrating this anniversary and exponential growth we have seen by welcoming back the original compilation cover designer/visual artist, Aaron Gosch (www.aarongosch.com) to design this years.

Track Name: Wicked Bears - Do You Remember?
The kindred dead that hang out in my room; they won’t let me be. Every time I come home late, or smelling like smoke, they act like they don’t recognize me. But I promise I’m not lying about those Elton John tickets, because I got nothing worth lying about. Do you remember signing up for this? Because I don’t. They want to know if I’ve learned my lesson. They want to know if I’m going straight. And when I tell them, “I’m not going anywhere,” I watch the frown form on their collective face. But when every warning label is addressing you by name, maybe you’ve got something worth lying about. Do you remember signing up for this? Because I don’t. Now there’s something worth lying about! After every unsuccessful exorcism, after running north as fast as I can, when I’m lying in bed and they’re still staring disrespectfully, one thought breaks my short attention span: Do you remember signing up for this? Because I don’t. Now there’s something worth lying about!
Track Name: Ourselves On TV - Marylou's Girl
Sofa.
So?
So far so good!
So far...

Not sober
So?
I'm sociable,
And soulful!

"Didn't I say to take this slow,
Didn't I ever make this known?"

Drinks will last-

"Drinks will last when you drink alone,
Now look alive, cause you're looking very
Ghost..."

How could you rely on 'us'?
You couldn't rely on trust!
You trivialize, and you lust,
You live for July
Or bust!

I'll never live
By Hingham's coast
Oh no!

And I'll never get
A Marylou's
Girlfriend! "Didn't I say to take this slow,
Didn't I ever make this known?"

Drinks will last-

"Drinks will last when you drink alone,
Now look alive, cause you're looking very
Ghost..."

How could you rely on 'us'?
You couldn't rely on trust!
You trivialize, and you lust,
You live for July
Or bust...and summer has come now,
For all of us...

"Summer has come now! For all of us!"
Track Name: The Chain Letter - Bedhead
I wanted to see something beautiful before I died so I went to a fireworks display, and let me tell you, it was so bland. They didn't even synchronize the music at all.
I wanted to see something terrible before I died so I went to your house for our weekly meetings. Fuck up my schedule, why don't you fuck up my life?
I wanted a bunch of tragic shit to happen to me, the types of things you don't have to ask for but I prayed to whatever watches me to make me suffer, to make me cry.
But now that I'm so close to the end of my life, it's getting harder to enjoy anything at all. But my friends will move away and make me feel like I moved away. And my son will write songs and I'll just disappear.
Track Name: Magic Island - Boom King
Some day I’ll find
Some place to go
Where they’ll know my name
Where they’ll rest my soul

Where the people love
Without a cause
And it’s the only place
Where you’re never lost

You’ll never feel terrified
You’ll never feel alone

Why we gotta feel so trapped
why can’t we have each other’s backs
I wanna know
'Cuz when I get up on my feet
I want you all there next to me
pulling the rope​​
Track Name: Jack Young - They Don't Need You
They Don't Need You
Every night when sleep gets hard,
and we fall so far apart.
Like a canary in the coal mine,
we'll be fine if we've got time.

They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.

We made peace with this tourist town,
you helped me mend my broken crown.
I don't know if it's love but it's enough to make me not want tomorrow to come.

They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.

[Instrumental Bridge]

They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you like I do.
They don't need you, no they don't need you.
They don't need you, no they don't need you.
They don't need you like I do, like I do.
Track Name: Jaguardini - Skin & Bones
I hear your heartbeat
I hear the dial tone
I feel your heartbeat
It echos through my bones

And I hear you whisper
Send lightning down my spine
To tell the truth
I'm a moth pulled to the light

Its cold yeah oh so cold
defibrillate my bones and drag my skeleton back home
And I feel yeah I feel
my skin and bones and body parts are the mechanisms of the heart

As you me pull me closer
I breath my final breath
You resurrect me
With dangerous touch and tiger eyes
you pull me through my death

Resuscitate my memories
Call me back to earth
pull me close and kiss my lips
Drag me to the dirt
Track Name: A Day Without Love - It Hurts
We are the slaves of a desperate past
Its memories like this that we’ll always look past
Its the scars that touch our bones
That will always hit home
It’s the memories within
That’ll leave our skin

It hurts
To know the truth
It hurts
To know the truth
Your eyes
They’re filled with
Lies
Your eyes
They burn
Inside


And you can scream my name
And think that your in love
Lust is an occupied lie
Your legs , that sweat
Makes me high

It hurts
To know the truth
It hurts
To know the truth
Your eyes
They’re filled with
Lies
Your eyes
They burn
Inside

Contradiction,
It Breaks the Heart
Contradiction
It'll tear you apart
( You’re a liar in my heart, you’re a liar in my eyes)
Track Name: Port Arthur - Often (In The Summertime)
Often, in the summertime, things aren't what they seem
Lovers running 'round and 'round
Clinging to their scene
I don't want to be like them
I don't want to need
Often, in the summertime, things aren't what they seem

Apprehension brings me down
I won't go out tonight
I'd rather stay inside my head
If I go out I'll fight
I'll fight myself to be secure, ignoring you all night
Apprehension brings me down
I won't go out tonight

You're not mine anymore
I've got pesticide on my hands
And a broken heart
And a broken heart

Land of wisdom, land of hope
I'll be there someday
Tired of reigning in my thoughts
I haven't got a say
All these newborn people cry
It's the only way
Land of wisdom, land of hope
I'll be there someday

Often, in the summertime, things aren't what they seem
Lovers running 'round and 'round
Clinging to their scene
I don't want to be like them
I don't want to need
Often, in the summertime, things aren't what they seem
And your life is a dream
And I'm not what I seem
Track Name: 8 Foot River - Mark Down
MARK DOWN
Kind mess, it makes us find the next way out
Here gets some nurture among friends
And love keeps us coming across sides
Keys lost again to be found
I'm sure you recognize my face but have you heard
the things I say, mark down the time
the time that you waste, pour the mix of blended days
it's a struggle to keep everything in place
