REVIEW: Outside World - 'Seaside Nowhere' Cassette EP (Night-People)

Outside World float undetected into your ear like a paisley-colored afternoon in the late summer in the late 80s, filling you with warmth  Its nostalgic in all the best ways- like a Woody Allen or Ken Burns film- you wish that you were back in that time/place because you've just been presented with a such well-thought-out, romanticized take on it all.  The overall affect of Seaside Nowhere (Night-People Recordson the listener is a complex-yet-soothing one. One that deserves multiple listens to soak up. And there's plenty of good stuff here: Tangled bass, guitar and vocal lines all intertwine as the drums move everything along at the right clip.  All of it comes together nicely to make Outside World's fuzzy-sunny-skater-slacker-daydream-pop sound.  At least that's what I'm calling it.  The vintage-style production and cassette format fit perfectly with the aesthetic as well.  Get it here.
