Playlist: Ann Yee Loves Beach House, Le Tigre Dance Jams

NYC designer Ann Yee's playful take on edgy downtown style is prime for pretty young things on the go. No surprise, then, that the designer's summer playlist is all about letting the good times roll, from rock jams by the Strokes to crooning Beach House tunes.

The Libertines, "Death on the Stairs"
"Always takes me back to London when I was studying abroad. Makes me want to dance!"
Zola Jesus, "Poor Animal"
"A beautiful song. I love the honesty in Nika's voice."
Oberhofer, "I Could Go"
"This was featured in my first ever video lookbook for Fall '10. The band made cameos in the video and played my lookbook launch party. It's so exciting to see how well they're doing now."
The Strokes, "Hard to Explain"
"This makes me think of all my college friends and all the fun times we had going to shows. The album is definitely one of my go-tos."
Grimes, "Oblivion"
"Great to have on while I sketch and look through magazine tears."
Le Tigre, "Deceptacon"
"One of the best dance jams ever."
Beach House, "Myth"
"The perfect summer tune."
College Feat. Electric Youth, "A Real Hero"
"Love, love, love this one! Plus it doesn't hurt that it reminds me of Ryan Gosling."
