I’m reviewing a tape, and after all the shit I’ve talked about tape-only releases! Anyway, I love The Vacation Club. They’re currently my favorite Indiana band. A mix of garage, pop, psych, and something not quite definable but undeniably Midwestern. I finally own a recorded version of “Daydream!” These six songs make up the meat of their live set. They’ve been touring extensively so I hope the rest of the country catches up to what Indiana already knows. My only complaint is that the low end should be more present. The drummer is tight as hell and I know the bass can be louder ‘cause I play a Gibson Ripper too… Includes free digital download.
