Beach Fossils is a Brooklyn-based group, formed in early 2009 by Dustin Payseur. After signing to Captured Tracks and quickly pulling together a live band, they took off playing countless shows across the U.S. gathering a slew of devoted fans in their wake. In May of the same year, their debut LP Beach Fossils met with favorable reviews and became known for its jangly, single note guitar style, dusted with summer-fueled romance.
Payseur takes influence from music, poetry, art and philosophers (Don Cherry, Ravi Shankar, Rumi, Lao-Tzu and Jean Cocteau), having an equal and crucial impact on his work. Steady members of the band have actively formed their own groups, guitarist Cole Smith with DIIV and John Peña with Heavenly Beat. This show is in support of the release of the band's sophomore new album 'Clash the Truth', out now on Captured Tracks.
TRAAMS formed in summer 2011 in the most unsuspectingly quaint surroundings of Chichester, West Sussex. They wrote one huge thunderous song during their first rehearsal that made spires quiver and cobbles wobble, and so Stu, Adam and Leigh decided to do this again every week. It seemed like a more productive pastime than how they first met, at the club night frontman Stu used to run, in what must have been the most exciting place in their hometown at that moment. From those darkened corners sprung forth the noisey, joyous krautrock squall that is TRAAMS.
Primitive Parts play pugilistic pop and very well too. The band are formed from members of London DIY staples Male Bonding and Sauna Youth. The frantic crashing and smashing we’re used to from those bands is washed over with gritty electric guitar riffs that jaunt and jitter then splash perfectly into distortion.
