Goldroom – “Fifteen” (feat. Chela)

There comes a point in May (and I think it’s Cinco de Mayo) when we begin to hear summer’s call, the time of year most closely associated with youthful indiscretion. It’s strangely nostalgic and you have to just let it wash over you like a seasonal stage change. Maybe it’s California, but our best memories, it seems, are always floating around bathed in a kind of airy summer light.

Josh Legg of NightWaves is based in Los Angeles so I can only assume he’s named after “the best bar ever” and all-around great place to start off said misbehavior. Check out the open field track “Fifteen” featuring Australian vocalist Chela that lets you wander a bit in the past just as it feels like you’re in the middle of taking some big steps forward.
