Although there's nothing overtly summery about San Francisco's Young Prisms, their debut album is evocative of sun-soaked afternoons spent lying on the deck with headphones cranked, oblivious to everything but the warmth on your face and the music in your ears.
Fuzzy washes of guitar and unintelligible vocals that blend with the instruments are in keeping with the style of many classic shoegaze bands. But while this is an atmospheric record, it's also upbeat and poppy enough to encourage dancing or at least vigorous head-nodding.
Such a seamless record, it's jarring when the appropriately named Stay Awake brings it to a languorous, somnambulant close.
