For the most part, Summer juxtaposes sugar shockers by the likes of Hilary Duff and Ginger Sling with Beach dialogue snippets, including one in which a bathing suit is judged to be "really, really, really, really cute." Tracks, meanwhile, consists of indie bands doing versions of ditties by other indie bands. This snake-eating-its-own-tail gambit generally results in lukewarm renditions of good songs (e.g., Goldspot's take on Modest Mouse's "Float On"). Kudos, though, to Lady Sovereign's sprightly remodeling of the Sex Pistols' "Pretty Vacant," whose lyrics serve as a succinct critique of the series itself.
That's keeping it real.
