MUSIC: CRUISR sounds like summer

I love fall – love it.  I love fall colours, I love fall drinks, I love fall out boy… (if you need to cringe at that it’s okay – I’m cringing too).  I also love Halloween (spoopy), and the way everything smells.  But honestly, even with so many great things coming up I have to admit, I’m not quite ready to let summer go yet.

Maybe that’s why I’ve been listening to CRUISR all week.

These guys opened for PVRIS on their North American tour, and they killed it.  Nothing cruisrlike a good opening act, right?  (as a side note, I love when there are a ton of opening bands for a show – seriously, give me, like, four.  It gives you time to squeeze your way into a good spot for the headliner, and I’ve found sooo many amazing bands just by seeing them kick off a show.)

CRUISR are great – fun, high energy songs that just make you want to drive to California and go surfing.  They remind me of a younger, nicer Wavves with less drug abuse (I think).

If you’re still clinging to the dream of summer – or if you just need a good soundtrack while you clean your room – check these guys out.  My personal favourite song is ‘Kidnap Me’, because I’m angsty and like songs about running away from your problems.  ‘Wild Babe’ is also a good one.

What are you guys listening to lately?  And are you ready for cool weather?

PS, more music posts to come!
PPS, you’ll note that I didn’t make a single Grand Theft Autumn joke – I have a strict limit of one Fall Out Boy reference per post, effective immediately.
