Amazon owns just about everything now so they might as well take over your summer with their latest fun in the sun playlist.

Also: New Music Playlist | Summer Sounds to Vibe With

Curated by the world’s largest internet company’s “Music Experts,” Amazon’s Songs of Summer playlist (which includes songs from Sublime with Rome, the Strumbellas, Baio) has added 10 spankin’ new tracks just in time for vacation road trips.

Crave is exclusively premiering one of the new tracks with the Cosmonauts‘ cover of “Summertime Blues”. 

The Orange County psychedelic lo-fi rockers take a big rip of the Eddie Cochran classic, absorbing its best parts (the iconic guitar strum), while exhaling a hazy vape smoke veil that has the flavor of the Velvet Underground.

In addition to the Cosmonauts cover, new recordings from indie darlings Foxygen, UK psych upstarts Temples will appear on the Songs of Summer, starting June 23 for streaming exclusively through Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music at www.amazon.com/songsofsummer.
