VACATION: Candy Waves: CD

I first saw this band in August 2011 with The Dopamines and Dan Webb And The Spiders in a basement show in Somerville, MA. Yes! It was awesome. I picked up some of Vacation’s merch. While all good, nothing was there that prepared me for this record. In some places, this reminds me of early ‘80s output from bands like Wall Of Voodoo and Jesus And Mary Chain. Jerri the drummer writes all the lyrics. But bassist Evan and Peyton on guitar offer up super-charged riffs to bring it all together. I don’t know what else to say about this record except that it’s beyond amazing!
