8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 26 August 2010
I've only heard the one single by these Norfolk, Virginia based characters ('Henry' i think it was called) and i thought it was pretty sweet but they've totally surpassed themselves on this long player. Sitting somewhere in the new and previously un-mined territory of lo-fi, surf and psych The Super vacations manage to sound like many things whilst maintaining their own identity and crafting sweet tun-age at the same time. 'Thicker Milk' serves up 21 nuggets of lovably shonky lo-fi pop gems that totally kick ass. I can hear elements of the Woodsist/Captured Tracks stable here but there are also got moments of classic psych and surf to mull over too. Some bits have got a Spectrals-esque 50's style reverb drenched rock 'n' roll thing going on but I'm also digging their Guided By Voice/Sebadoh style dedication to writing proper catchy tunes and slappin' them down on the cheapest recording gear they can find. Totally great LP, nice work lads.
