Recorded at Key Club Recording Co. in Benton Harbor, Michigan—same as 2011's Glazin'—the new record takes full advantage of expert engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins' sonic sandlot, with Kramer in charge of mastering. The end result? A smashing set of tunes as dazzling as a sparkler.
It's like that movie you once saw. The one with the boy and the girl and the plastic lounger on the beach. "Be My Prism" was the invitation. "Black Gloves" and "Double Vision" the promise. "Dust" was the rising tide. "Rubble," the dirty uncle. "Hotline" was the lightning storm, and "Ultraglide" was the ending, the part where he drove her home with the windows down.
You remember you liked it.
It stayed with you while you swam alone in your pool that night.
