Christmas Island

San Diego's Christmas Island has landed in all the right spots, seemingly simultaneously. Though the band currently have only a split 7" with Le Jonathan Reilly and an appearance on The World is Lousy With Ideas 5, they're looking at an onslaught of releases in the coming months. A full length, Blackout Summer is set to be released shortly on In The Red with 7"s on Captured Tracks, Sacred Bones (split w/ Meth Teeth) and Woodsist (split w/ Waavves) scheduled shortly before or after the record. It's pretty easy to see why so many labels are interested; the band has a subtle charm that mixes sunny California harmonies with a nod towards the garage in the vein of Kiwi poppers like The Clean. Keep your ears perked and ready for more because as I said, when the releases start tumbling out of this camp, its going to be too much to handle. Can't wait for that full length, In The Red is really killing it in '08 - '09.

Hey Jessica. The link is fixed. It was meant to go to the band's myspace. I believe that the split 7" is currently out of print but you may be able to find it from some small distros or on ebay. The album will be out shortly on In The Red. As far as I know the band has it recorded and is just finishing the artwork so hopefully not too much longer. Can't wait for this to come out!
