Oregon Bike Trails - High School Lover / Cayucos

Feels Like: Vampire Weekend, Foster the People, The Beach Boys

So we're getting a new Vampire Weekend album this Spring (!), but if you're looking for some upbeat indie pop to tide you over 'til then, then let me introduce you to Oregon Bike Trails.  Although their output is pretty limited (these two songs make up half their catalogue), they hit each song out of the park with undeniable catchiness and a straight-up sun-drenched tone.  It doesn't hurt that the "High School Lover" video includes some perfectly appropriate Wonder Years visuals.
