A couple years ago our buddy Nathan Vasquez showed us this really rad band from San Diego and we’ve been listening to them non-stop since then. Christmas Island are a two piece [but Chris steps in for the live band] that make some great jangly beach jams. But don’t be tricked, Brian’s words could break your little heart. We were lucky enough to finally catch them this past SXSW since they rarely ever leave the West Coast. We’re working on fixing that though. They’ve put out a couple of 7″s, most recently the “Nineteen” single on Captured Tracks and their debut full-length, Blackout Summer, just came out on In The Red. And is that not the best band-logo ever?
