Like most of Fennesz's other works, it focuses heavily on digitally manipulated electric guitar sounds, but with stronger emphasis on melody and pop-like composition than on his previous releases. Although Endless Summer shares its title with a 1974 compilation album by the Beach Boys, it is named after the documentary of the same name rather than the album.
The album was reissued in 2006 with two bonus tracks and new cover art.
