Texas Tea - Sad Summer Hits LP. There’s a warm breeze and you’re sitting on the porch after a hot summer’s day work. You’ve got a glass of icy lemonade in your hand, but you debated spiking it with gin. Listening to Sad Summer Hits by Texas Tea instantly transports you into the deep American south, with twanging guitars, hot summers and lazy afternoons. You’d never expect that this nostalgic country style comes out of a Brisbane duo, Ben P. Dougherty and Kate Jacobson. As their second record, they’ve been careful about how each song fits with the others, and this care shows. Each song is different enough to hold your attention, but they all link together with the theme of American nostalgic heartbreak. It’s something you find yourself swaying along to without even realising it, and humming when you’re daydreaming.
