Today Reverb Recommends Seeing Beach Fossils & Craft Spells at Chop Suey Tomorrow Night"/>
Anyone trying to recover from a stressful, frenzied, negative day is advised to sit back and spin Beach Fossils' 2010 self-titled full-length, or its follow-up, this year's What a Pleasure EP. The Brooklyn quartet's tunes are as warm and shimmering as a mirage--less lo-fi than naturally muted and sweetly serene--kind of like Joy Division's sunny, easygoing younger cousin. The bass propels vague, reverbing guitars and frontman Dustin Payseur's hazy vocals, and the lyrics match the music's carefree sounds--"Times I can't remember/What I'm thinking about/'Cause my head's caught up/And tangled in those dreams," Payseur sings on "Daydream." Instantaneous relaxation is guaranteed.
Beach Fossils play Chop Suey tomorrow, May 7. Craft Spells and Sea Pony will open; the show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets are $12 at the door.
