Album Review

Reviewed 2013-07-19 
Straight up 60s pop. Surf elements. As the album title alludes, a fair bit of "hit the road" 60s pop feel. Lots of harmonious mellow vocals. Male vocals. Straight ahead arrangements. Gentle, summer-y tracks.
Riyl: Beach boys, Orange Peels
1.* 4:22 Keyboards, happy go lucky, bright. cool wordless vocals
2.* 3:37 Mid. Traveling song. Relaxed, bright; gets pretty and reflective and bounces back
3. 3:38 Rock and roll. Smooth, flowing reverby vocals, over same surfy 60s instrumentals.
4. 2:41 Indie folk tinged. Chill Beach Boys.
5.* 3:13 Song about double rainbows. Mid/chill. Mellow and summer-y.
6. 3:06 Bossa nova inspired track, xylophone; everything -> shimmery
7. 3:54 a bit of anthemic-ness. more 60s pop
8. 3:50 folk-y top-40 country with 60s touch, slightly crunchy guitar
9. 3:56 midtempo pop, introspective, kinda anthemic, meh. Beach boy wannabee track
10.* 3:55 sputtering guitars, duet with female vocals, shimmering, 60s troubadour style
11. 5:28 kick-a-can-down-the-road-style, 60s troubadour, simple guitar, female voc harmonies
