The legendary indie band has been too busy making albums either as the brains behind Merge Records or (in the case of drummer Jon Wurster) recording with The Mountain Goats, to put out much new music lately. This single and its B-side, a brilliant cover of Bananarama’s “Cruel Summer,” came out in June and have been populating summer playlists ever since. “This Summer” is filled with sticky hooks, rapid-fire beats and a jump-for-joy melody. It serves as a reminder to respect your indie rock elders.
