Vacationer – Shining
Philly’s Vacationer is back in the spotlight this week with their sophomore record called Relief. It’s a follow up to one of my favorite albums of 2012, Gone, so as you can imagine my expectations for this new one were pretty high. Quite honestly after my first listen it hasn’t had the same effect as their first one, but I’m holding off any judgment until I give it a few more spins. Still, I’ve found tracks that make more of an immediate impact like that of “Shining”, where the warm, breezy guitar melody Vacationer’s known so well for acts as a nice introduction to the summer season.
