Summer Salt’s debut release for Epitaph Records, Happy Camper holds onto the childlike innocence the band’s maintained since their high school days. The album was mostly self-produced by Summer Salt, whose lineup consists of singer/guitarists Matt Terry and MJ Tirabassi, bassist Phil Baier, and drummer Eugene Chung. After recording the drums with producer/engineer Joey Oaxaca, the band headed to Seattle to work with Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes
, The Shins
), whose mixing skills helped shape Happy Camper’s clean and graceful sound.
