Dawn of Delight is the second full release from the San Diego group Tropical Popsicle. Fuzzed-out garage and surf rock has become the norm of SoCal music and these guys are caught right in the middle. There’s an edge of New Wave synths on tracks like ‘Ghost Beacons’ and ‘The Beach With No Footprints’ as well as some brief drone on ‘Canyons’. Tropical Popsicle show that they can deliver variation and skill, but nothing separates them from the surging surf/garage rock scene.
