“Smile. It’s contagious.” I know, what a trite platitude. Sounds like something that’s printed on a greeting card or a magnet on your aunt’s fridge. However banal that phrase may be, there is evidence that it’s true. For example, Vacationer’s 2012 jam “Good as New.” A daydream of a song, the East Coast-based band’s free-flowing, psychedelic alternative pop sound is the musical manifestation of a smile, and if you listen, you won’t be able to help but catch the bug. Soothingly repetitive orchestral strings and cheery vibraphone pecks intertwine with almost hip-hop-like drum kit percussion, steady bass, and sparing swells of guitar to create a serene musical landscape that allows singer/bassist Kenny Vasoli’s voice to flourish unimpeded. Given his pop-punk roots with The Starting Line, Vasoli’s voice is surprisingly gentle and measured; a voice you can only imagine being produced by a mouth that’s well-versed in grinning and inexperienced in the art of grimacing.
