Growing Up To Say I Don't Want to Grow Up

According to many people, it's summer. As far as music goes, summer is always the best time for music and releases. Ice cream likes to melt, all the girls want the sun. Look around -- who's not wearing Wayfarers? What will France bestow upon us this time of the year? Maybe the more important question is what will Australia bring us this summer? Headliners Midnight Juggernauts, The Presets, and Cut Copy have all recently put out albums, so is it time for the underdogs to make an impression? Maybe the dream team for France will be Valerie. Here are two songs that we stole from blogger-fave Mass Hyperbole that are perfect for summertime, a couple drinks, more laughs, a tank-top night, a hot headache in the morning. Roll over and fall back asleep.

Don't tell us we haven't warned you about Breakbot. Original friend and music experimenter to Xavier de Rosnay (Justice) in high-school, Thibaut Berland now puts out bass-driven funk numbers that cry for a vocalist. That's all true until he remixes someone like Pacific!

A few blogs back, we finally spilled the billion dollar news that is Valerie, the best kept French secret. The blog has been around, and their artist collective is now making the Valerie hallmark prominent. Case and point - The Outrunners Remix of Alternative Reality. Hipster Runoff - Only five comments on that post. WTF? Totally underrepresented by HRO readers, especially for a High Rec'd duo like The Outrunners.
