Music critic Drew Tewksbury shares some new tunes to fill out your summer playlist. He reviews Memory Tapes' latest release, Player Piano. It's an album full of dreamy synth music perfect for lounging about on a hot summer afternoon sipping iced tea. But when it's time for a summer night block party, Teddybears fit the bill. They are a Swedish electropop outfit. Drew weighs in on their new album, Devil's Music. It features poppy anthems and guest vocals from the likes of Cee Lo Green, Eve and Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.
