Named for the sleepy surf town just north of Morro Bay, Zach Yudin's Cayucas has a similarly sunny, blissful, offhand charm. It's the perfect soundtrack for wasting away some days with an unlimited supply of Pacifico beer. Like the Allah-Las or Black Lips, Cayucas spin lo-fi, percussive, echoey jingles that boast suntanned pop hooks inspired by classic proto-rock innocence, a little bit Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly or early Beach Boys. Before devoting himself to the search for the perfect summer garage stomp, Yudin made Daft Punk-inspired electro that sampled garage twang riffs from the Animals and the Tornadoes, and that history is instructive: the Cayucas beat is primal and engaging, the licks are simple and timeless. This may just be the bigfoot of legend -- a shaggy, mysterious beast who loves to party in the woods, and leaves a notable impression.
