Album Review
Reviewed 2015-11-21
Rocking innovative CA beach sounds harmonizing with girl/guy vocals lots of swirling sounds. From LA comprised of siblings Aaron, Zach & Sarah with cousins Jeffrey and Bryan.
FCC on 7. All tracks solid good! Favorites: 8, 7, 10, 2, 1

**1. Upbeat, driving, female vocals and B-3 organ come on strong like a sexy train, winding through the Malibu hills.
**2. Sparkly, swirling male vocal and an twinkling carousel organ go merry-go-round on a groovy baseline.
*3. Spacey mid-tempo contemplative with 80s beats & grove. Pretty guitar and male/female vocals, that expands and swirls like Tame Impala. Kinda blurs out on the ending.
4. Starts slow like a 60's girl group type of song, builds into groovy mid-tempo with some modern synth squeals.
5. Guy lead singer soft Beach boy-ish reflective with great harmonies and 70's keyboard solo.
*6. Dramatic kickback intro with tingly guitar and rolling bass like newer Flaming Lips or Tame Impala.
FCC ***7. (very soft "f**ked up") Slow reflective atmospheric ballad girl singing with reverb.
**8. Upbeat guy singer beachy harmonies, innocent builds into a topless ride to a beach party.
9. Flute-like female vocals and acoustic guitar, reflective, intimate, pretty and folky with cool stringy ending.
***10. More full sounding soft lullaby - rich, romantic, and electronic, reminds me of Air or Pulp, sets strong mood, the music during the resolution in a film. Flutelike female vocals.
