The jangly, self recorded ramblings of Brooklyn's Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils offers hauntingly catchy tunes that blend the energy of an impulsive road trip with the melodious wandering of a lucid dream. Sun drenched riffs, kaleidoscopic rhythms and hazy lyrics saturate Beach Fossils' first release, the album's carefree vibe is perfectly summed up through song titles such as "Daydream," "Vacation," and "Lazy Day." The band's only previous release is the "Daydream" single, released earlier this year, also via Captured Tracks.
