We’re excited to be able to giveaway 1 pair of these Warby Parker X Ghostly International sunglasses to the ISO50 readers. All you need to do is list off an album from 2015 that has soundtracked your summer in the comment section below. We’ll pick a winner next Wednesday. Enjoy your weekend!

Ghostly’s latest collaboration with Warby Parker features the beautifully minimal Henning frames. The desire with Henning was to showcase quality, character and resilience without being distracting. Crafted from premium matte acetate, and Japanese titanium the Henning boasts a one-of-a-kind cutout-keyhole bridge and wraparound temples. Each purchase comes with a lens cloth designed by Matthew Shlian, and a Warby Parker carrying case.

Lenses:

Offer 100% UV protection
– Anti-scratch coating and anti-reflective coating included
Frames:

– Made from cellulose acetate cut from a single sheet to maintain colorparity
Temple arms made of lightweight ion-plated titanium

I caught a band called Husbands that put out a wavy, sun-speckled album called Golden Year.

Who knew two dudes from OKC would have so much SoCal in them? With songs like Phoenix, Some Surf and Stay Gold, I feel like anyone that digs Tycho-type tunes would be down with this band like I am.

Good vibes.

All of HEALTH in preparation for DEATH MAGIC, which has consumed the rest of my summer since its release.

Mac DeMarco’s Another One has been leading the good vibe train all through the summer of 2015

Thundercat – The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam

Shintaro Sakamoto – Let’s Dance Raw. Late night, mid week, empty tiki bar, boozy dancing. It’s from 2014, but it’s new to me

So many to choose from:

Jamie XX – In Colour

Ty Segall discography

Four Tet – Morning/Evening

Lower Dens – Escape From Evil

NxxxxxS – Fujita Scale

…but summer sounds are still blasting:

#1 has to be Mac DeMarco – Another One

For me, Crazy P’s Walk Dance Talk Sing was the album of the summer. Many cookouts were had with this album playing in the background resulting in a bunch of people asking “What are we listening to? It’s awesome!”.

Nova Heart – Nova Heart

I’ve been playing the only released track from this album non-stop for 4 weeks in a row now.. Really looking forward to the official release!

Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit by Courtney Barnett!

Lots of other great albums in these comments though. Can’t miss jamie xx.

Honestly, Four Tet’s Morning has been my entire summer. What a connection that track has made with me.

Major Lazer – Peace is mission

Maybe I’m getting old but that’s the sound I needed for this summer.
Jamie XX was too mainstream :D

Body Complex by Heathered Pearls.

With Shigeto and The Sight Below chiming in, it made for a great soundtrack traveling through both isolated mountain roads in early morning, and busy cities late at night.

Tame Impala – Currents / Moullinex – Elsewhere / Tycho – Dive / Snoop Dogg – BUSH (perfect playlist for my road trip in California !)

The Chemical Brothers – Born In Echos! Still making the freshest big beat since 1995

Run The Jewels – Run The Jewels 2, definitely. Tame Impala’s “Currents” is a recent summer fave, though!

The full album hasn’t been released yet, but everything that’s come out from Wavves’ V album has embodied the energy of this summer.

Definitely Pinkshinyultrablast – Everything Else Matters. Perfect mix of chill atmosphere and complete ecstatic energy!

Courtney Barnett’s “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit” – great for road trips and early mornings.

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper (January 9, 2015).

[Thanks to the poster who recommended Husbands. Loving Golden Year.]

Immediately thought of Tame Impala – Currents, then saw it posted about 17 times already! But I can’t extract that album from memories of hot nights in the Mexican jungle, so I must follow suit!

I’d have to go with “Someday Somewhere” by Mura Masa. Always has great album artwork as well.

Dear ISO50,
lots of great albums have been released so far this year, but nothing has been better than listening to ocean waves at the beach. The sounds of seawaves crashing filled me with calmness and a sense of belongingness.
That’s why i give the title “summer soundtrack of 2015” to [i]Mediterranean Sea – Infinite Crashing Waves[/i]. 。^‿^。 Everybody should listen to it once in a while.
Unfortunately I was pinching my eyes too hard while looking out at the sea, The sun seems more powerful at the beach. Could hardly read this blog! Do you have ANY idea what could help to block out the rays?

Judging by my last.fm account it’s Currents by Tame Impala. But I’m yet to find out do i love or hate that one. I guess I’m still waiting an album that would blew me away this year. Oh yeah, new Neon Indian is great, but it’s only yesterday I first heard it. So that would actually be my late summer pick :D

For me, one particular album spoke to me – I only found out about this one because there was a remix EP scheduled featuring Telephones, Young Marco, & Max D. Recorded in the 80’s and sounds super fresh now.

The Sleeping Beauties: A Collection of Early and Unreleased Works

“Boxer” from Otto Ohm.

It’s an italian group I love very much. this is not the best work of their own, but it’s the most recent album (2015).

Bye and excuse me for my English!

Maribou state – portraits has been a constant for a large part of my summer, so definitely that one!

i can’t really just choose one album so that will be Val Maira by Dave DK and ASC – imagine the future for me

Portraits by Maribou State

Excellent debut album, love it from start to finish.
Has made the daily grind of driving all over town a little less shitty.

This album took me through all the highs and lows of this beautiful summer of change!

I was really happy to see Modest Mouse putting an album out this year. So it’s definitely Modest Mouse Strangers to ourselves

Future – DS2

While most Hip-Hop has such a heavy Yang vibe, Future, even when he is sounding his most braggadocio, has a melancholic, sensitive, Yin’ish nature. At times the lyrics can be cringey but he, along with his crew, make amazing music, which he sings, talks and raps too. Check out Blood on the Money, The Percocet and Stripper Joints, and Trap Niggas for dark, melodic songs that you can’t get out of your head.

Portable Sunsets – Bless

I work a lot of overnight shifts and have to commute an hour each way. This has been my go-to summer night driving album. Yes, it’s a bit dark…but I love it!

257

Ducktails – The Flower Lane. Actually had a chance to go see these guys live, and it was incredible to see how down to earth and hard working they are. They had so much passion about what they were doing, and everyone was so into the moment when they were performing. I had a chance to say hi to Matt and when I mentioned that his stuff is incredible, he was super humble about it and thanked me for coming to support him. Definitely awesome to know that there’s good people behind the mic making the music we love to listen to.

Definitly FKA Twigs – M3LL155X, it came in late summer but definitly on right time for me, very refreshing and unique.

Tame Impala’s Currents! This album pushed me beyond my comfort zone and expanded my imagination.

easily kevin parker’s album currents, so many jams and the vibe of that album fit the themes of my summer too well

I may be late to this, but I have to say that “Hyperdub 10.1″ has defined summer 2015 for me. A 2 disc juggernaut of footwork, grime and UK bass music.

I’ve been jamming to the Sidewalk Chalk album “Shoulder Season” Gotta give it up for Rico Sisney. Love his brand of activism. Great flow too. Add in a tap dancer that performs at live shows and you’ve got some real magic.
