QotD: Summer Music

What's the one CD that will totally remind you of the Summer of 2006?

Fiona and myself rented a car last weekend to head to West Wales, and grabbed some new CDs from the top of the ripping pile to use in the rental's CD player.

We listened to this (plus the new Gotan Project, Hot Chip, some others) pretty much the entire ride. It sat well with the scenery.

It's somewhat scottwalkerish, melancholic, a little-bit-country-a-little-bit-rock-and-roll. Wistful and whistle-able. Here's what Pitchfork said.
