After a string of 7″s and their amazing self-titled debut, Beach Fossils are set to release their first EP, What A Pleasure. You’ll find the soft-pop ballad “Calyer” on the new EP, screaming Beach Fossils’ lovable dueling Brit-pop guitars. What A Pleasure will be out February 22nd via Captured Tracks.
Walking alongside the elite dreaminess of Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils’ sunny indie pop with its distinctive clean guitars and fuzzy vocals make for the most pleasant albums of 2010. After hearing the track “Vacation”, anyone could tell that Beach Fossils self-titled debut was going to be a big hit. I know I’m a bit late on posting this, but if you haven’t checked this out yet, do yourself a favor and get ready for some heavy head boppers! This was originally sold with Wild Nothing’s Gemini, both on clear vinyl, from Captured Tracks. Those are since sold out, but you can order them individually now on black vinyl , CD, and cassette. I ordered both this and Gemini on cassette for a great price of five bucks each!
Up-and-coming Clevelander, Dylan Baldi, has been getting great press for his debut Cloud Nothings LP, Turning On. I’ve wrote about him a lot on The Noise Is, so I really don’t need to repeat any of the incredible stuff he’s been doing. But very recently, Cloud Nothings got posted on Pitchfork for the song “Hey Cool Kid” along with a remix by Memoryhouse. The MP3 I’ve posted the “Hey Cool Kid (Memoryhouse Remix)”, which takes the catchy lo-fi pop track, and adds a ton of soothing synths over it. Dylan and his Cloud Nothings band just left for their tour before SXSW and MtyMx Festival, so check the Myspace for dates.
Dinowalrus are a thrash/drone trio out of Brooklyn NY, reminiscent of LA noise bands HEALTH, and No Age. “Electric Car, Gas Guitar” is a fast-paced, fuzzed-out, thrash-drum, adrenaline-filled track, proving why their name is as abstract as Dinowalrus. Their debut, %, is out now on Kanine Records.
Beach Fossils, out of Brooklyn, are the newest part of the great hazy-pop movement with Ducktails and Real Estate. Expect dream guitars and vocals covered in a summery fog in “Vacation”. This track is off of their upcoming LP from This track is off of their upcoming LP from Woodsist and Captured Tracks hopefully sometime this month.

My last, and definitely not least, track is from Wild Nothing, a bedroom shoegaze/dream pop also on Captured Tracks. “Summer Holiday” is full of pretty melodies with hazy vocals, making it a perfect head-bopper when the weather gets warmer and you start rolling down your windows when you drive. You can grab this 7″ from Captured Tracks, and expect a debut LP in the near future.
