Cayucas, JBM

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Monday June 17 | $10.
Mississippi Studios
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
 
[TROPICAL SUN POP] If the inflatable beach ball that comes bundled with the deluxe version of Cayucas’ debut album isn’t a sign of the group’s knack for sand-tinged nostalgia, then I don’t know what it is. More of a pet project of multi-instrumentalist Zach Yudin than a fully collaborative band, the Santa Monica-based musician’s sole full-length, Bigfoot, is a twinkling collection of pedestrian-turned-pearly tunes about girls, bicycles and other images conjured from the West Coast native’s memory bank. The album swims with chiming keyboard, breezy percussion and spry guitar, while bouncing with Yudin’s “ays!” and a distant air of melancholia à la Beta Band or a slightly more somber Vampire Weekend. It’s the perfect soundtrack for a drab summer.
