It’s strange to hear a reggae remix of one of the most painful love songs of all time, but somehow The Frightnrs totally make it work — and makes me want to slow dance with my head on someone’s shoulder…on a Caribbean beach…at midnight…with a full moon shining down on us.

beach boys_

The first album I was obsessed with as a child was the Beach Boy’s “Endless Summer”. I flipped those albums on our record player obsessively, recruited my neighbors to be a part of my choreographed dance routine to “I Get Around” and would lie on our living room floor dreaming of being a “California Girl” (I did it!!).

The combination of Amelia Meath’s traditional folk style of singing and Nick Sanborn’s electronic beats, made Sylvan Esso one of the brightest spots of 2014.
Many of us here at the station had their self-titled debut on heavy rotation & H.S.K.T. (Head Shoulder Knees Toes) was one of those songs that just about everyone gravitated towards. It’s just one of those tracks that you just …
