Rio Grands and Smokey Brights

There are two versions of Rio Grands' debut album. The cassette edition of A-Z contains 26 tracks, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each song bears a girl's name, from "Angel" to "Beverly" to "Xylia" to "Zooey." And each one is a sunny, warm, breezy pop song that evokes piña coladas and white tuxedos. (The abridged digital version of A-Z cherry-picks 12 highlights; sorry, "Ursula," you did not make the cut.) The ambitious recording project of Colin Jenkins is more Wilson brothers than yacht rock, though, with '60s beachside color and plenty of tropical flair; and tonight's record release show is an affordable substitute for a trip down to the islands.
