Vacations is the solo project stemming off of another North Texas band called Fungi Girls. Jacob Bruce makes surf rock and with a deeper voice he makes a deeper impression than other surf rock compatriots. On the title track “Purple Slumber” Bruce’s low-tenor/high-baritone drones out over the lively jangly guitars with a slightly reverbed patch put over it. On the B-Side “Longing Dream” Bruce indulges more in the surf/beach rock ethos with his voice clearly cut over the guitar riffs. Along with this 7″ being incredibly cheap, this is actually the first release by Play Pinball! Records (who released Parquet Courts’ American Specialties. Stream the EP below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
