Danny Delegato has been keeping his psychedelic cruise ship the Hugs afloat since 2007. In 2012, a new version of the Hugs is readying a new LP called Dirty Gems (due out in late June), which carries on the tradition of making psych-pop with a smack of bubblegum. The first single, "Reykjavik," is a sunny nod to the Icelandic capital. It also shows the Hugs leaving their ramshackle past behind them and veering toward more polished terrain. Delegato and bandmate Patrick Wilcox split songwriting duties, and it sounds like they've got merry band of airtight musicians fleshing out those ideas. Then again, new songs like "Racy Girl" and "Give Me Your Drink" are sure to keep the Hugs from taking themselves too seriously. MARK LORE
