London label Something In Construction are offering up a treat today, a massive album of summer tracks just in time for the fleeting moments in the park ahead called 'Better Pop Music'. Featuring Air France, Caribou, Memory Tapes and Class Actress it's a pretty blissful affair including a fair sprinkling of exclusives. You can download the whole thing below.

Plus, we've got five physical copies to give away too, with one winner picking up a load of other albums from the label (all the above plus LPs from Forest & The Trees, Acrylics, Silent League and The Rest). To be in with a chance comment below with your favourite summertime tune, that one track that sums up lazy days in the park with good friends and a few ciders. I'll select five winners next Monday (May 24th).

Try before you download above, and watch a few of the acts on the label below. The excellently-named Fitness Club Fiasco are a bunch of Bristolian electro-poppers with a soft spot for The Postal Service and in a dancey kind of way Los Campesinos. The Forest And The Trees, meanwhile, are from Sweden and purvey shimmering Scandanavian pop (think Air France sped up a bit) while New York's Class Actress are the new project of Elizabeth Harper. The latter also featured on the third Radar mixtape.
