Artist: The Knocks

Song: Blackout

No, we're not insinuating that this is a state we often find ourselves in during breezy summer evenings...but we we're also saying we won't judge you if you can recall a time (or perhaps, fail to recall a time) when "Blackout" sufficiently described your state.

The Knocks, composed of DJ B-Roc and Mr. JPatt, just recently released their first album and we must say, what good timing.  With its poppy keys and a beat that you just can't help but dance to, "Blackout" is our summer kickoff song of the day.

And let's be honest, though we may not want to admit it, we've all been "passed out, waiting for your rescue" before...especially when we're stuck in Montauk and want to get back to our beds in East Hampton...
