Why: These guys not only put on a solid stage show at our SXSW parties this year, they saved the day with a lent audio cable that patched us through a day of technical issues. If all that awesome wasn’t enough they haveÂ sinceÂ dropped the tight-as-a-drumÂ Exotica EP which kicks off with the glisteningÂ cocktailÂ of a jam “Tropics.” Much like it’s video, the audio light-as-air adventure float through beaches andÂ forestsÂ filled with love and wonder. And just like the rest of the 4 song EP, it gets even better with repeated listens. For a band who didn’tÂ initiallyÂ catch my interest, they have grown on meÂ immenselyÂ these past few months. Get this for your summer.
