Alaskan SummerPosted: May 22, 2009
I am in Anchorage right now for the World Beard and Mustache Championships, so it’s an appropriate time to be writing about Alaskan Summer. The band recently directed me towards some of their new songs that will appear on an EP available on iTunes by the end of June. They make pleasant (if a bit sleepy) pop music, sometimes lush and sometimes spare, and always buoyed by the female-male vocal interplay of singers Ashton and Douglas. It’s obvious that a lot of care and design went into all of this, so pay a visit to their MySpace page to see what it’s all about for yourself. And they will be performing in Los Angeles at El Cid on June 15th.
