Upbeat/catchy indie pop! If you like bands like Vampire Weekend and The Drums (and who doesn’t?) this CD will be right up your alley. Running through the album is a relaxed, laid back vibe perfect for a lazy summer. I particularly recommend the first four tracks. “Cayucos” makes a jolly addition to any surf rock playlist, while “Will the Thrill” and “A Summer Thing” are more for relaxing on the beach. “A Summer Thing” might be my favorite track here: it employs exotic instrumentation and group vocal flourishes akin to Beirut to tell a compelling story about trying to hold on to a summer fling. Overall, Cayucas packs a bunch of sunshine and positivity into just 30 minutes, and I could really see them catching on. Highly recommended for rotation. – Zach Shealy, 3/29/2013
