VACATION: Candy Waves: LP

Jun 06, 2014

Don Henley and Phil Collins do not count. The only singing drummer that springs to mind as actually good is Will Grabass and now that he’s moved up front, The Careeners are even better. Enter Vacation to turn that notion on its head. 2011’s self-titled was a stunner and Candy Waves seals the deal. Tight mod-pop (think current Canadian punk explosion) drumming dropped into a 40oz full of California echo and fuzz. Dose the drink with just a touch of desert expansiveness. Re-cap and shake vigorously. Pop the top and catch Vacation explode. Fast and tight hooks to blow your mind and set your happy feet free. Highly recommended.
