The release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, Dracula, is still a couple months away. However, that won't stop us from asking Portland, Oregon's Nurses to create a guest playlist for us. They probably need a little interaction with the human race after locking themselves up in an Oregon cabin, spending a winter recording the follow-up to 2009's Apple's Acre. They've already released the lead single, "Fever Dreams" which we have available on their artist page.

The three fine lads of Nurses, Aaron Chapman, James Mitchell, and John Bowers, took some time to create the perfect summer set list and let us share it with the world. So enjoy it as we have.

"In Portland where we live, winter is long and grey and everyone freaks out once it's finally nice outside. Everyone is blasting summer jams, taking their shoes off, and heading to the river at every chance to stay cool. This playlist is for everyone who can make it to a river this summer and enjoy some sun." - Nurses, July 2011
