Los Angeles group Alaskan Summer love their pop music, exhibiting an obvious love for the sounds and textures of Burt Bacharach. The band has been creating quite a buzz around the city for the past year, and it reached a fever pitch with the release of their debut EP at the beginning of the summer. Containing six songs, it was recorded with producer Dave Trumfio (Built to Spill, OK GO, Jesus and Mary Chain), and they're already at work on their full-length debut, which should be ready to go in the next year. They have a few live dates coming up, including appearances at Hotel Cafe and the Eagle Rock Music Festival next month.
