Vacation is a Cincinnati group featuring Dylan McCartney of Human Program on drums. They’ve actually been around since 2010 and made a bunch of records. Heavily influence by Sebadoh, Times New Viking, Guided By Voices and similar lofi luminaries, they’ve quietly continued making records without making much of a splash among youtubers. I’ve no idea how I came across their most recent album Zen Quality Seed Crystal, but it’s out on Salinas Records and tape via Wasted Tapes. “Chewing On Brooms” is a brilliant song that would have turned some heads back in 2010. Closing track “Professor Messenger” also sounds like early Sparklehorse at his most powerpop mood.
