Day 36 - Who Wouldn't Like Bubblegum Lemonade?

Bubblegum Lemonade's "Caroline's Radio" take three chords, jangly guitars, winsome sad-eyed vocals, Beach Boys references, a little fuzz and music crush lyrics (here it's famed English pirate radio station Radio Caroline) and create a breezy power pop summer anthem, that's heavy on the pop. Bubblegum Lemonade is the nom-de-band of one Lawrence "Laz" McCluskey, who named his sweet tooth project after a Mama Cass album, 1969's Bubble Gum, Lemonade and Something For Mama.

Apparently every current Scottish band is required to be impossibly adorable. Laz - you had me at Bubblegum.
