The Durutti Column's 1979 post-punk The Return of The Durutti Column is full of retro-chill vibes. It might be the heavy use of vibrato on the electric guitar, I'm not sure, but the aptly named Sketch For A Summer makes me think of vintage polaroids of palm trees, beaches and bikinis and frankly, makes me feel somewhat nostalgic.

The album is contemplative in nature, like a more modern John Fahey perhaps. Worth a listen if you find yourself in a summery limbo.
