PaperCity Magazine hits the stands with an evocative theme each month. From July’s “Solar Powered” to August’s “From the Ashes of Summer Rises Fall” cover, every issue sets a tone that speaks of a certain feeling (or feelings). With PaperCity Sounds, we present a music playlist inspired by the month’s happenings, from fall fashion to the dog days of summer.
Speaking of those dog days of summer, August is usually when restlessness sets in, right before we enter a reflective time preparing for autumn’s arrival: school, college, the social scene ramps up, plus we have fall style. This month we’re sweating during Houston’s hottest month to the moody R&B sounds of Canada’s PARTYNEXTDOOR; Kurt Vile has another laidback guitar groove on his hands with “Pretty Pimpin,” the first single from his yet-to-drop forthcoming album; Dallas hip-hop producer/artist Picnictyme is affiliated with Erykah Badu and delivers a suitably smoky vibe; and Mac DeMarco brings it home with a cut from his Another One mini-LP that drops Friday, August 7.
