As autumn officially nudges its way into the Northern Hemisphere, Cristobal and the Sea get set to release their brand-new album, Exitoca (a proposed evacuation to the recent mires of Brexit), via City Slang.

“And there’s another summer that’s almost over…!” exclaim the London-based expatriates from Portugal, Spain, France, Egypt and the USA, whose Balearic roots are inseparable from their essence. “We’re sure that you got just enough good vibes and vitamin D to last you for a good while, but, in any case, here’s a little something to help you, should you need it. Peace x”

1. Jack J – ‘Atmosphere’

“This is just a summer favourite.”

2. Brenda Russell – ‘Way Back When’

“Memory – the mother of the Muses.”

3. Steely Dan – ‘Time Out Of Mind’

“Plenty of good times ahead, people!”

4. Motorbass – ‘Ezio’

“That break at around 2:25…”

5. Heatwave – ‘Put The Word Out’

“Did we already say that there are plenty of good times ahead?”

6. Animal Collective – ‘Kinda Bonkers’

“These guys just keep putting out good songs! Who’s good for that long?”

7. Ethiopian Records – ‘Feluha’

“This one is so strange and satisfying…!”

8. Tina Turner – ‘We Don’t Need Another Hero’

“What would summer be without some serious pop hits?”

9. Visti & Meyland – ‘Yes Maam (All Nite Long) Henrik Schwarz Remix’

“Good times! Really!”

10. Pete Drake – ‘Forever’

“It’s like his guitar is talking to the sunset…”

Cristobal and the Sea’s Exitoca is out on September 22nd via City Slang.
