Beach Fossils is a low-fi surf-rock band from Brooklyn who formed in 2009. They’ve released only one album. One of the members of the band is Zachary Cole Smith, who essentially is the indie rock band DIIV. Click that link to find out the extreme measures that Smith took when he decided to start that project.
Another one of the founding members was John Peña, who left the band to start his own band called Heavenly Beat. They’re also on the Captured Tracks label. You’ve probably heard or read my ramblings about how awesome the Captured Tracks label is, and Beach Fossils is just another example.
The word on the street is that Beach Fossils have a new record in the works, scheduled for release by the end of 2012.
In the meantime, check out their debut album, which I called #15 in my list of my favorite non-Canadian albums of 2010. You should especially check out “Daydream”, which is the sixth song on the album. This is that song.
“Daydream” by Beach Fossils
One of the things that I like is that the chorus of today’s song reminds me a lot of “Car Crash” by Telekinesis.
I also like the abrupt ending. You guys know how much I love abrupt endings.
