Record of the Day….Olympia by Jackie Zealous


Summer is wrapping up in my part of the world, colder temps and (GASP!) snow will be on the way soon.

But it doesn’t matter because with new music from Santa Cruz surf poppers Jackie Zealous it can always be summer.

The band have just released their debut LP – Psychic Data, following their stunning six song EP last year.

The lead off track Olympia is a perfect example of the Jackie Zealous dreamy, Beach Boy, surf pop vibe. Sort of like Smith Westerns meets The Go-Betweens. It just begs you to grab a cool cocktail and sit by the pool.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
