Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

T.S. Eliot once said that April was the cruelest month. He did not live in Florida.

It isn't even officially summer yet and South Florida temperatures are already exceeding 90 degrees daily. Brain-melting heat coupled with enough humidity to leave anyone sweat-soaked in less than ten minutes can dissuade anyone from leaving the comforts of central AC. However, for those of you braving the elements and the blinding rays of the sun, County Grind has a treat for you.

We've compiled the perfect playlist to allow you to actually enjoy the inevitable heat stroke that you will experience during whichever outdoor activity you choose to partake in. Head over to our profile on 8track.com and listen to the songs we feel would best ease your mind into heat-induced unconsciousness.

Track Listing:

Hear Hums - "Change"
Chemical Brothers - "Star Guitar"
Balam Acab - "Regret Making Mistakes"
Sumsun - "Call It Home"
Gold Panda - "India Lately"
Four Tet - "Plastic People"
Holy Fuck - "Stay Lit"
A Place to Bury Strangers - "Ego Death (Figo Remix)"
Salem - "Asia"
Jesu - "You Wear Their Masks"
Caribou - "Lalibela"

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
