Today I am requesting Beach Fossils' "Golden Age" because I saw them live last night for the first time. Maybe I'm just mad out of touch, but I had no idea they had such a large following. It's completely warranted though if you've got your hands on their releases, and especially if you've seen one of their shows. Their performance is very clean, which is mad respectable for hazy pop considering how many acts have a tendency to implode and fizzle across the stage when trying to accomplish this summery lo-fi sort of thing. Last night's show solidified their likeness to Real Estate, which is one of the best compliments I could give a band. Tight and true to their recordings, it was a truly pleasurable experience.
