The Beachniks are back with the follow up to their Funky Head EP (Captured Tracks, 2009). This long-awaited collection of 12 revitalizing songs is now available on LP and comes in a deluxe fully color-coded package.
This group of sisters, brothers, roommates and friends put the pressure on: pumping the drums, unlearning the bass, whirling the guitar, whacking the xylophone, warbling the organ, and crying out “ooh”s and “aah”s and ” да да да”s. Their songs describe — in noise and words — dreams, fun days, affairs in espionage, hypnotic paintings, stolen hearts, and more. What many listeners call “a wave of fresh rhythm” is the unignorable sound of the Beachniks.
Self-released debut LP In Color: beautifully hand-painted sleeve and labels, full color song chart, digital download coupon, mail-order bonuses and more. Recorded by Gary Olson at Marlborough Farms. Featuring members of Crystal Stilts, German Measles and others.
