    Throughout the record, Steve Mackey's production shimmers both warmly and vibrantly, sounding at once like a throwback from the 1980s and futuristic.

    Summer Camp's long-awaited debut album seethes with updated teen angst set to engaging electropop grooves.

    Glorious singalong hooks and unashamed sass dominate the debut offering from indie writer Elizabeth Sankey and indie cult-hero Jeremy Warmsley.

    Summer Camp's debut Welcome to Condale is a rather diverse affair for being essentially a good-time summer pop record.

    The album is quite vibrant piece of '80s-flavored pop. [Oct 2011, p.103]

    An album that exudes charm and promise. [Jan 2012, p.96]

    Welcome to Condale is a study in tactless excess, the sheer volume of inebriating nostalgic moments intended to overwhelm the lukewarm medium by which they're delivered.

    WTC is ridiculously awesome. Every song is so infectious that i've got a bunch of them stuck in my head all day since the album leaked. Even my parents start shoulder-shaking when I put on 1988 or Better off without you. Happy family. Expand
