Shaun Slaughter

As we move away from the waterlogged days of April, you may find yourself reaching for music that lends itself to the warmer weather. Local DJ Shaun Slaughter (Vicious, Lipstick and Rock Night) suggests SN&R readers check out “Don’t Call Me Whitney, Bobby” by Islands, which consists of Nick Diamonds and J’aime Tambeur, former Unicorns bandmates. “[It’s] way more cohesive than Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? and another perfect sunshiny, on-the-beach-drinking-orange-soda song,” explained Slaughter.
