Guantanamo Baywatch: Do What You Want
With a name like Guantanamo Baywatch, what's not to love?
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, this trio has a sound that sounds more like it's come straight off the California coastline, but perhaps that's just my bad stereotyping. Their music is sun-soaked, filled with jangly guitar licks characteristic of nostalgic surf rock.
With their upcoming record Darling... It's Too Late, the band wanted to keep the rough DIY style of old mixtapes, complete with those hisses, pops, and crackles that really keep that charm and character of analog recording.
Feel free to daydream you are driving up the Pacific coast highway with the windows down and the sun sparkling on the ocean while listening to "Do What You Want". And grab a copy of their album when it comes out on May 12th, via Suicide Squeeze Records.
