We’re celebrating (the not end of) summer in the Listening Booth today with a surf rock mix to accompany your holiday weekend adventures. Hit up new beach born tracks from The Creation Factory and Echo Courts, along with Ventures-like throwbacks from Black Flamingos and High Waisted. Plus, check out must hear new alt from Jeremy & the Harlequins and The Beths—who play this weekend’s King Street Crawl festival in Sydney’s Newtown. And stick around for a dose of trippy electronica with Shy Boys and Champagne Superchillin.
