I find all of Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins oddly summery, but that might just be me...

Saints - the Breeders

Good to me - Brendan Benson

Turn it On - Flaming Lips

Sugarcube - Yo La tengo

Been caught stealing - Jane's Addiction

...to name six off of the top of my head.

Eels - Mr E's Beautiful Blues

Mungo Jerry - In the sumemrtime

Beach Boys has a summer feel if you want it like that

I know a lot of happy nice Ska tunes if you want me to recommend any of that? If you want, i can send you a compilation of the best of summer ska.

Lately, I've been finding cds by 'You Say Party! We Say Die!', 'The Faint' and '!!!' to be good summer listening, plus there's something about playing 'Hunted by a Freak' or 'Killing All the Flies' by Mogwai in the car on a sunny day which is just awesome.
