Wesley Bunch, the Philadelphia-based musician who records under the Suburban Living moniker, has a throwback sound that could have landed him a spot on the soundtrack of any John Hughes film of the 1980s. Suburban Living’s self-titled full-length debut, like his 2012 “Cooper’s Dream” EP, is filled with layered guitars and hazy synthesizers over the steady rat-a-tat-tat of a drum machine.

Suburban Living CDThere’s little wasted space on an eight-track release that whisks by in a tidy 26 minutes. Along the way, Suburban Living impress with “Dazed,” “Different Coast,” “Faded Love,” “New Strings” and “Wasted.” Bunch flirts with greatness on this record and with a little more seasoning, he just might get there the next time around.
