THE EXPLORERS CLUB
Grand Hotel



'While there's an undeniable, late-'60s sunshine pop vibe to many of the arrangements here, from the vocal harmonies to the horn sections, the Explorers Club nevertheless seems to have simultaneously inched along a little further on the calendar and widened their target.

The band hasn't gotten the Beach Boys entirely out of its system, though, and Pet Sounds-worthy harmonies pop up on even the most '70s-sounding of these songs, with agreeable results; Burt Bacharach-style arrangements adorn some tracks as well, enabling the Explorers Club to achieve a kind of momentary state of lounge-pop satori.

And one of the most impressive aspects of the whole endeavor is the fact that a bunch of South Carolina musicians were able to spiritually transport themselves so definitively to a Southern California state of mind.'
