mp3: New Beach Fossils - Twelve Roses

One of my favorite new bands, Beach Fossils, is finally getting around to following up the Daydream/Desert Sand 7'' with a proper full length on Captured Tracks.

After finally getting my hands on the record, I can say with confidence that the buzz is deserved and the CMJ hype didn't go far enough. Beach Fossils make immediate, textured indie-pop that sounds like Real Estate on speed, which is still pretty laid-back but quickens the pulse of the tropical waves vibing off their reverb-drenched guitars. "Twelve Roses" is maybe the most immediately awesome previously-unheard Beach Fossils song to show up on the LP. I want to make a video for this song featuring a young boy lost in the uniform expanses of suburbia with only his Schwinn and the sunshine for company. Or something.

After you've jammed on that, head on over to Insound to see an awesome live session of the band playing some tracks from the album. It's good; go there.
