Amoeba Review

06/23/2014

Vacationer are described as a “Nu-Hula” band. What the hell is that, you might ask? It’s what you want to be listening to at the beach, on vacation, all summer basically—truthfully, Relief couldn’t be a more appropriate name for this album. Kenny Vasoli’s smooth vocals whisper sweet nothings float over the band’s cool, jangling riffs on songs like “Glimpse,” pillowy synths on “Heavenly” and funk bass on “In the Grass.” They’re kind of like a more laid-back Vampire Weekend or happier Tennis, writing immediately likeable songs with knotty little melodies on songs like “The Wild Life” that sneak into your head and stay there, even as they’re dressed up as islandy trifles. “There’s no point to making plans,” Vasoli sings on “The Wild Life” over a reggae-infused beat and chill vibraphones, and we couldn’t disagree. Here’s your summer soundtrack.
