Hey, at least we’re honest.

Album Review: Poolside – Pacific Standard Time

A confession: I didn’t get away much this summer. Had I had the opportunity though, you can bet your bottom dollar Pacific Standard Time – the debut full-length from LA-based ‘daytime disco’ duo Poolside – would’ve been the first album I’d have made sure was on my iPod. As its …
