Lusine + Beach Fossils + Sbtrkt + Jonsi

Posted by Jakub

If you’ve been following this whole lo-fi lazy summer meets surf rock movement with bands like Real Estate, Washed Out, The Young Friends,Small Black, etc. there is a whole range of tones and tempos. One band that needs more releases out is this Beach Fossils group which I think has some great guitar parts, i’ll keep you updated on new material by them since they sound pretty promising.

Sbtrkt is one of the guys that has hit me over email with tracks, I really love his production work, he has a line list of releases this year and one that really impressed my ears was his remix for Modeselektor, looking forward to the vinyl.

If you’ve read the blog for awhile now you know I love Lusine, I suggested him and Hatchback to remix Tycho awhile back for Coastal Brake. This single which came out this week shows off more of his new direction of using a lot more female vocals which is the perfect follow up the his Two Dots single.

Below is the new Jonsi(singer of Sigur Ros) music video, I like his direction, he definitely stays with his sound and is pretty fearless visually.

I was obsessed with the Desert Sessions/Yawning Man a few years back .. sounds like this beach fossils track could have easily been on a desert sessions release… stoney surf sound with Josh Homme styled background falsetto. I like it.

Saw the Jonsi video the other day on Vimeo. I’m noticing a post-apocalyptic/ tribal vibe in a lot of new music videos, but done tastefully—i.e. this one and fever ray. It works really well on video, not sure how it would translate to the daily grind.

Sorry I was late, my feathers were caught in the car door.

The beach fossils track reminds me a little of beat happening. If your not familiar with them and are into lo-fi do yer self a favor.

Excellent stuff. Especially the Jonsi stuff coming up soon. I’m slightly less out of the loop thanks to you guys.
