Here's a cool surf pop submission from Belfast's Coastal! The righteousness comes in the form of a 5 track album entitled Crumble Blue. Every track on here has a laid-back and groovy sound that can be listened to again and again. The song that speaks to me the most though is the 3rd track on the album which is titled "The 90s". Check out said track below and if you're up for more then be sure to check out the other songs over on Bandcamp.
At the end of last year is when I first got a taste of Cole Smith's side project from Beach Fossils, DIVE. Man oh man, was I impressed. After a recent name change (now they're DIIV) they're sounding just as great as before and are gearing up to release their debut album Oshin. This album is jam-packed with jangling dream-pop goodness that's covered with a gauzy sheen of shoegaze. "Follow" is the newest cut from the album and it's a great example of why these guys are so awesome. Pick up the rest of the album on June 26th when it's released on Captured Tracks.
I'm back from vacation! Sorry for the delay everyone. To make up for the lack of posts I've decided to post a summer mix. This mix is loaded with new and old jams that are arranged ever so perfectly to enhance everybody's favorite season. DL the mix after the jump!
