Q. What do you get if you combine the newly crowned queen of West Coast lo-fi pop, America’s finest indie rapper and Vampire Weekend’s multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer?
A. Chugging guitars, hazy vocals and some cracking couplets, aka: a rollicking good tune.
All Summer is the Converse-sponsored collaboration between Best Coast, Kid Cudi and Rostam Batmangli. Granted, the mention of commercial sponsorship tends to be an immediate turn-off, but let’s be honest, Converse is basically the unofficial sponsor of every indie musician ever....Now, if we were telling you that Them Crooked Vultures was all a big publicity stunt put together by Berluti it would be a different matter.
But we’re not, so you can lower that eyebrow.
