Poolside: Local Band We Love

Written by

DJ Mario Cotto picked Poolside’s “Do You Believe as the potential “song of the summer” and while that may not have entirely come to fruition, a couple other KCRW Djs are expressing support for the band now too!

DJ Raul Campos has been spinning “Take Me Home” and I heard him singing their praises, and anxiously anticipating their full length release, on air. The track is out now as part of Aeroplane’s “In Flight Entertainment compilation and will be on the new album, due next year.

Meanwhile, DJ Anne Litt has been spinning their cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” which she dubs “daytime disco”. It just sparkles and shines, musically speaking. It’s gorgeous and makes me happy every time I hear it. They recorded it as a treat for fans as they finish up their album.

From the band: “We thought a cover would be a good idea and since we both love “Harvest Moon”, we decided to give it a try. It’s super intimidating to cover Neil Young so we tried to make it a lot different, just so we didn’t have to “compete” with the master.”
