High Pop's brand of crunchy garage goodness has previously been described as "Beach Boys on crack", which isn't surprising when you take a gander at that album art. Their seven-track album "Hippie Speed Ball" really is like taking a trip to the beach with a couple of rowdy dudes (to be exact, rowdy dudes named Sean and Jordan who record in a basement in Connecticut). The whole album is over too soon, but I find myself replaying "Drip From The Sea" the most. The slightly warbling vocals and super fuzzy guitar build in a great two-and-a-half minute wave that comes crashing down with the repeating lyric "you were all that I had".
