Theme Song of the Month: August 2012

Better late than never.

We may be halfway through the eighth month of the year, but that doesn't mean I can't find the right tune to accompany these final days of summer.

I discovered Youngblood Hawke on this hot August night (thanks to iTunes's trusty Single of the Week column), and I have a feeling it will follow me well into the fall (it's already found a slot on next season's playlist). This adorable quintet from L.A. specializes in big choruses and tubular bells along with an anthemic sensibility that should have fans of alterna-pop cheering.

See Exhibit A: "We Come Running".
