Catalog Number DG-69
Release Date June, 2013Tracklist:
Candy Waves, Vacation’s second full-length, is full of aggressively addictive tracks that shift between explosive bursts of guitar feedback and hooky shout-alongs. A no- filler record of simple melodies under blown-out high-distortion; lyrically, it’s a more personal record than the outward-looking self-titled. “Because we acted like saviors / who practice bad behavior / when everything came crashing like a wave,” sings Jerri on the feedback-heavy “Pyro Hippies.” The record was recorded with Patrick Jennings in Bloomington, Indiana in his home studio, using almost every room in the house for tracking the instruments. The result is a massive sounding, psychey opus that tips its hat to punk’s past while driving itself at almost uncomfortable speeds towards its future.
