Bikini let loose their new, and sadly, final project together — 'No Blonde Jokes' last week . The album is a sweet goodbye; giving off plenty of the fun, beach-y vibes worthy of the band's name, while still containing emotional heaviness in the songs' lyrics and distant sound. Whiny vocals can make Bikini an acquired taste, but after a few listens you'll find 'No Blonde Jokes' is a rather addictive, highly suitable companion to your time spent longing for summer.
High points include the title track — "No Blonde Jokes," a particularly upbeat tropical number — "Canal Zone," and my personal favorite: the catchy, sweet and sad — "Bedtime Stories".
