Every time I think I’m ready to declare a “song of the summer”, another great tune is released and I’m back at square one.  Great for my (and your!) ears, not so great for my compulsive need to create lists.

This latest warm weather anthem comes from British indie musician Saint Raymond (aka Callum Burrows), who at but 19 years old has secured the opening slot on Ed Sheeran’s European tour, performed sets at Reading and Leeds festivals as well as T in the Park, and is preparing the release of his debut full length album.

His latest single, “I Want You,” is an insanely catchy indie-pop song that fits perfectly playlisted against a backyard BBQ with friends, relaxing by the pool, or a road trip with the wind blowing in your hair; that is, everything great about summer.

Indie Music Filter Custom Flash Drive (Wood, 8gb)

I’ve decided to try out Gleam, to run contests on Indie Music Filter for tickets to upcoming shows, prizes, etc.  Currently though, I’ve haven’t got any shows coming down the pipe, so I thought I’d do a contest for something that I’ve made myself.  Pictured here is a custom made wooden usb flash drive, which I made for my business Bearsuit Publishing.  The image is a mockup of how this prize will look, as tonight I’ll try out imprinting the IMF logo on the end of the flash drive.

Using the Gleam widget, you can enter by doing one (or more) of the following: like Indie Music Filter on facebook, follow us on twitter or tweet in exchange for an entry in the competition.  The lucky winner will be notified on 28th.   Good luck!

A few posters from Nashville’s Andrew Vastagh caught my attention recently, so I took a look at the other great designs at his website for Boss Construction.  Take a look at a few of my favourites and read a little more about Boss Construction below.

I’m pretty happy to hear New Orleans-based indie-rock duo Generationals are back with a new full-length album titled Alix.  Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Tennis, Foxygen) and being released on Tuesday, September 16 via Polyvinyl Record Co., Alix reveals itself as perhaps Generationals’ most confident record yet.  “Gold Silver Diamond,” Alix‘s buoyant first single is described by  Generationals‘ Ted Joyner as “a feel-good party track that is about emptiness, despair, and the meaningless futility of life“.

Take a spin.

Each week for the past couple of years I’ve done a post on Aux.tv called “Track Of The Week“; highlighting stand-out song from breaking artists.  Last week, we took the concept a little bit further, opting for a playlist over a single track.  As part of the “Trending Playlist” series, I highlight 8-10 songs on the Hype Machine charts and put them together in a Minilogs playlist.

What could be a great way to catch up on what happened each week on the blogs, check out my inaugural “Trending Playlist” post.

I lead off last fridays’ playlist with the latest from Death From Above 1979.  Featuring the duo’s signature sound (pounding drums, heavy bass fuzz  & howling vocals), look for “Trainwreck 1979″ off the band’s upcoming release of The Physical World.
