Permanent Vacation – ‘Ends All’

permanent vacation-ends all-artwork-cover

Ontario’s Permanent Vacation return with a new three track release called ‘Ends All’ (download / cassette). The duo (​Chris McComas & Joel Blanken) first got our attention in 2012. Over the years their love of lo-fi sounds and reverb blankets hasn’t lessened, as evident by the tape hiss heard on ‘It’s A Game‘. The title track ‘Ends All’ is a lovely jangle pop tune, not far removed from the early Captured Tracks roster.
