Southern Nights: “Grass or Gasoline”.

28 Jul 2011 — Henning Lahmann
Been banging heavily as of late to this ultra-fierce tropics-dripping jam by Orlando, Florida glo-fi duo Southern Nights, a slick and sleazy late night trip that's been dubbed "purpwave" by the group - whatever that might mean in detail. Just another example of slow-burning, 80s-leaning synth extravaganza, but for a change one that refreshingly stands out against the still rising surge of nostalgic pop monotony with its seriously sultry rooftop erotica vibe (if you know what I mean). Oh those summer nights. Grass or Gasoline is part of Southern Nights' pretty damn fine Peninsula Music Mixtape which is available for pay-what-you-want over at bandcamp.
