As summer comes to an end, one can’t help but reflect. The Islanders’ summer would have not been at all the same without Guards’s E.P. The ep is light, breezy, summery blah blah etc. but it had a distinguishing factor that made it special… legitimate songs. Most summer tunes are repetitive and float in one ear and out the other, which is nice but there is something about a collection of songs that are groovy and bouncy but also catchy and structured that makes it noteworthy. While almost every song is worth listening to, Resolution of One is the brightest and the one that really captures the everything that was summer ’10.
