Pill Wonder - Jungle/Surf

BUZZ BAND ALERT. This 12" is making the rounds on all the hipster blogs, and you're certainly going to see this one on plenty of end-of-the-year lists (even though the cassette is from '09), but this is definitely a breath of fresh air in this West Coast 60s pop revival explosion extravaganza. It's refreshing to hear harmony, a variety of instruments, and pop sensibility at the forefront rather than buried beneath sixty quadrillion layers of fuzz (even though I'm obviously a sucker for that shit too).

And holy shit this album is good. It's not not lo-fi as I first expected from the post. It's authentic to an extreme measure but so much fun and love went into this. I dig it!
