mp3: Splashh – Vacation

After dominating our spring with an onslaught of sun-saturated and endlessly catchy tunes, Splashh made us wait all through the summer before finally dropping some new material.  The sun may not be out in full force anymore, but it hardly matters if Splashh keeps dropping music like this.  ‘Vacation’ is a song that demonstrates Splashh as a proper four piece.  Throughout the composition, Splashh create some great instrumental interplay between the dynamic bass lines and guitar with plenty of guitar solos scattered throughout the mix.  Lo-fi and fuzz-rock are often criticized for being overly simplistic and straight forward and ‘Vacation’ provides a strong case against that assumption by demonstrating a group that is dripping with songwriting inspiration and a knack for creating great hooks.  I haven’t heard a bad song from them yet so I’m excited to see how the continue to develop going into 2013.
