johnny hawaii Southern Lights (LP, £14.75)label: Hands In The Dark Records
Limited edition 300 copies. The debut LP from French dream expop surfer Johnny Hawaii, 'Southern Lights' finds its particular echo in Marseilles, an historic urban area by the Mediterranean sea and the artist's home town. This follow-up to the split cassette with Cough Cool, released on HITD in January 2012, describes his vision of a romanced reality, a patchwork of feelings assembled from bits and pieces of melancholic souvenirs with a delicate guitar filling the lapses of memory. This original, personal album will undoubtedly be the perfect soundtrack to your own post-summer spleen. You'll wish you could go back to that now empty beach, drink a sour pina colada under the threatening, cloudy, September sky.
