In case anyone still needs reminding that California is a sun-drenched paradise with a laid back mentality and great surf, one listen to Gringo’s The Shores should be enough to sufficiently drive the point home. The Northern Californian garage rock outfit is the brainchild of San Diego native Ryan Gillespie, who has spent his time to date between Redding and his birthplace embracing those ideals. Before he could even swim, Gillespie was hanging ten from the front of his uncle’s surfboard and has since grown into the embodiment of his easy going, fun loving home state. Gringo’s ten-track debut is a collection of stories from the last year and a half of his life on the west coast.
