Since first joining forces at the tail end of the noughties, California-based duo Simon 'Woolfy' James and Dan 'Projections' Hastie have become masters of the Balearic blend, delivering albums packed full of hazy, picturesque gems that join the dots between a multitude of sun-kissed styles. They're at it again on this third full-length for Permanent Vacation. Across the 11 tracks, they variously fuse, mangle and doff a cap to flamenco, dub disco, AOR pop, stoned West Coast rock, chugging Italo, lilting downtempo grooves, reggae, deep house, post-punk dub funk, and folksy pop, all whilst retaining their now familiar beach-friendly sound. Station's greatest moment, though, is "Who", a blindingly good - and suitably baggy - cover of Odyssey's 1974 Balearic anthem of the same name.
