Matt’s Pick: Cayucas – Bigfoot

When I’m looking for summer music, I’ve pretty much got one big qualification: “is it fun?” Cayucas’ album Bigfoot (out today on CD/LP) is exactly that. The joy here is that it’s got a warmth and a wit that’ll last it well out of the warmer months. Like Vampire Weekend, Cayucas have that youthful preppies-on-the-beach sound to a lot of their music, but the similarities end there. Their debut album is produced by veteran pop producer Richard Swift ( Damien Jurado, Foxygen) who keeps the album rolling along full force.

Check out the video for “High School Lover” below, then come into the store to preview the full album. The first pressing of the album is limited-edition colored vinyl at a crazy low price.
