The Summer Hits - Beaches and Canyons 1992-96

The Summer Hits appeared and then disappeared from the Californian music scene before they really had a chance to make an impact. The album consists of sun-soaked shoegazy pop with a sound reminiscent of The Clean's DIY sound.

this is a GREAT record. dudes went on to be beachwood sparks, the tyde, etc., but this one might be their best.
