California may be the largest state in the Union, but it's only one state nuzzling one ocean, with only so many people living near the coastline, and a small minority of them have attempted to navigate waves on a board, much less possess the fetching physique to do so in public.

The band will be selling the album exclusively during their spring tour, followed by an official release date of June 9. if i had a hi-fi's eclectic choice of covers include Spoon, Depeche Mode, the Moody Blues, and Kate Bush.
