DIVE just played a new song at the cake shop (via Bleary Eyed Brooklyn):
I also found two really well done Beach Fossils and Dive fan videos. The Beach Fossils video is made up of an old home movie and the Dive video is made up of some vintage NYC footage:
Both of these tracks are totally rad - Lessons sounds like an in-between sound of Beach Fossils’ first LP and their more recent EP, What A Pleasure. Human is essentially a melodic masterpiece (I’ve listened to only this song for a couple days straight).
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
Captured Tracks very recently posted two new Beach Fossils tracks on their Soundcloud. Both of these tracks sound amazing, with the Beach Fossils’ bass player singing in Face It. These tracks are from their new 7” dropping on Captured Tracks October 12th.
Captured Tracks will be offering up Beach Fossils’ debut LP and WIld Nothing LP on clear, limited-edition vinyl and sending out a notice to everyone on their mailing list when they go on sale. Keep your eyes peeled, guys.
Youth is a track from the Beach Fossils debut LP dropping May 25th on Captured Tracks. The Beach Fossils’ Dustin Payseur has proved he’s been able to hone the art of jangly pop, and I for one, have been waiting very patiently for this release.
The Beach Fossils LP is just around the corner. I can already predict very high ratings on pitchfork’s odd/unpredictable rating system. I currently have Beach Fossils fever, and so does the internet. Insound posted a nice studio session of the Beach Fossils playing four new songs from this upcoming LP, which can be seen here. Insound also included the single Wide Awake for free download, which you can get below.
Also, the amazing Ray Concepcion uploaded some brand new STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL videos yesterday, and one of them was of Beach Fossils playing at a church, preforming two songs from the upcoming LP. The sound in the church is great, and the opening scene sets the mood for the video with a very ‘fun’ and ‘happy’ vibe, with Girls’ Lust For Life playing and girls dancing.
