One of the best and loveliest bands on the underground-pop scene Beach Fossils from New York continues the line started by Lou Redd, continued by the Talking Heads and now fluorished again by them. Support act, hailing from Cambridgeshire, Nervous Conditions encompass the more cathartic elements of rock n roll, with an aggressive blend of thundering dual drumming, free jazz sax, angular guitar and buzzing keys.
Beach Fossils (US)
Beach Fossils, a band whose reverb-slicked indie pop compares favorably to acts like Surfer Blood, Best Coast, and the Drums, formed in 2009 as a vehicle for the solo recordings of Dustin Payseur. Bassist John Pena and guitarist Christopher Burke were brought into Beach Fossils' lineup later that year, after Payseur had single-handedly put together the recordings that would comprise the group's first album. Beach Fossils' debut 7" single, Daydream/Desert Sand, was released on Captured Tracks in February 2010; their self-titled album was released on the same label later that year. Pena and Payseur worked together on the group's next release, 2011's What a Pleasure EP, before Pena left to focus on his own group Heavenly Beat. The next Beach Fossils album featured drummer Tommy Gardner and production from the Men's Ben Greenberg. Clash the Truth was issued in early 2013 on Captured Tracks.
