ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Cayucas Announce Sophomore Album ‘Dancing at the Blue Lagoon’ Out 6/23, Hear Track “Moony Eyed Walrus” Now

Its been a couple of years since weve heard new offerings from Cayucas and named them one of the best new bands of 2013 off the strength of their debut, Bigfoot. The indie pop duo of twin brothers Zach and Ben Yudin is back with Moony Eyed Walrus off their sophomore album, Dancing At The Blue Lagoon. The surf is gnarly on this song, with groovy guitar stabs, big drums, and sweeps crashing together to propel the track forward. –Stereogum

Today we are proud to announce Dancing at the Blue Lagoon, the sophomore album from Zach and Ben Yudin, the twin brothers compromising Los Angeles-based Cayucas. In line with their 2013 debut, Bigfoot, the new album has similar sun-drenched, jangly, California vibes, yet tells a more personal story as the band draws from the nostalgia of growing up in their hometown of Davis, California. Recorded with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Foo Fighters, Ra Ra Riot) at Bear Creek in Washington State, Dancing at the Blue Lagoon will drop June 23 via Secretly Canadian and is available now for pre-order with an instant grat download of debut single “Moony Eyed Walrus”. Look for the band on their five-week North American tour this July. Album art, track listing and tour dates after the jump.

Listen to track “Moony Eyed Walrus” above or on our SoundCloud / YouTube pages.

Pre-order Dancing at the Blue Lagoon via SCD, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

WATCH // Suuns And Jerusalem In My Heart Share “Gazelles In Flight” Video Via Noisey, New Collaborative Album Out April 14th


Beginning in November 2012, Suuns [Ben Shemie, Liam O’Neill, Max Henry and Joseph Yarmush] and long time friend, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, aka Jerusalem In My Heart, rented a studio in Montreal for seven days to record. The session turned into the amazing collection of tracks on the upcoming album Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart, out April 14th via Secret City in Canada and Secretly Canadian worldwide. Today, we’re sharing the video for the first single off the record, “Gazelles In Flight”, premiering this morning via Noisey and available to watch above or here on YouTube.

You can pre-order the album via SCD, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

Directed by Charles-Andre Coderre, the film is made from 16mm color film archives found in a Montreal garbage container. The original footage has been modified by various handmade film techniques. On the unique video, Suuns says:


“This is our second video shot on film, while Jerusalem in my Heart works exclusively with reel-to-reel analogue film projectors. Visual artist, Charles-Andre Coderre – and visual counterpart to JIMH – manipulated the film and put this video together for this first single. It made sense to keep the video in-house, just like the music, and maintain a link to our respective projects.”
