Cayucas: High School Lover

Zach Yudin first recorded under the name Oregon Bike Trails before recruiting his twin brother Ben Yudin, Banah Winn, Casey Wojtalewicz plus Christian Koons and taking the name Cayucas after the small surf town of Cayacos on the California coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Last fall the Santa Monica band was signed to U.S. label Secretly Canadian which will release their debut album 'Bigfoot' April 30.  The first single "High School Lover" is The Beach Boys updated for the 21st century and makes for a perfect summertime soundtrack.

A string of shows are scheduled between May and August, most of them in North America, but there will be a few in the U.K. and continental Europe as well.

Info for readers in the Los Angeles area:  the band will be doing a free gig at 7 pm this Tuesday, April 30 at the Origami vinyl record shop in Echo Park.
