CAYUCAS

Cayucas: Pronounced "ky-yook-us", is the monikered homage to a sleepy little seaside town in San Luis Obispo County, California. That town, Cayucos, has hardly changed in the last 50 years, a far cry from the gentrified tourist traps parading showily down the nearby coastline. In the early 1960s, the surfing craze hit. There was one bar around which local kids congregated back then, the site of helpless crushes and fights and games of pool, a place whose jukebox soundtracked innumerable teenage years as breezy summers rolled into mild winters and back around again. The bar has since disappeared, but as Zach Yudin, the man behind the name, will tell you, the place still holds on tight to its propensity for dreamy, lazy, bonfire-lit nights worth getting moony-eyed about.

LSTN // Cayucas Share New Track – “East Coast Girl”

Cayucas roll into Thursday with a brand new track from their SC debut, Bigfoot. The song is titled “East Coast Girl” and is available for streaming above or at Stereogum. Like what you hear? Pre-order Bigfoot from SC Distribution and you can download the entire album, including “East Coast Girl,” immediately.

Waste no time in seeing Cayucas live in concert. They’re playing Filter’s Coachella kickoff party on April 18, followed by a performance at LA’s Echo on May 9. We’re also excited to announce they’ll celebrate release day (April 30) with a performance at Origami Vinyl! See all their dates HERE.

Don’t forget to sign up for Cayucas’s email newsletter! It’s a perfect way to stay in the know with everything Cayucas, plus all subscribers get a free download of the “Bigfoot” remix. SIGN UP HERE.

Pre-Order // Cayucas’s – ‘BIGFOOT,’ Dungeonesse Remix “Cayucos”

With a much anticipated (and needed) summer nearing, Cayucas’s album could not be available for pre-order at a better time. For starters, when you pre-order Bigfoot at SC Distribution you’ll be able to download the entire album immediately; this means you have at least a solid month to memorize all the lyrics in preparation for summer drives and swims soundtracked by Cayucas. Your ordering options include the album vinyl or CD formats; plus a deluxe bundle (shown above) featuring the album on both LP (first 100 orders get translucent blue vinyl) & CD, a Cayucas beach ball and 17 x 22″ glossy poster featuring Bigfoot album art.

We’re keeping it all in the family. Cayucas’s “Cayucos” was recently remixed by labelmates Dungeonesse and it’s, well, perfect. You can check out the reworked track below or at YVYNYL where it premiered this morning!

 
FINALLY – do not forget to check out Cayucas at SXSW next week. You’ll find their complete schedule and other tour dates HERE.
