I couldn't have asked for a better treat after polishing off my last exam. This new Beach Fossils tune first appeared a little while ago in live form, and it was pretty great. The studio version, though, is a different animal entirely. If the band's early recordings had a workmanlike quality to them, here every note is rendered with an artist's brush. Every pristine guitar pluck shines out like an overexposed Polaroid, squiggling around in unexpected ways. I can't overemphasize the gorgeousness of the guitars on this song. It comes from an upcoming Captured Tracks EP, which has quickly jumped to the top of my most-wanted list.
