Lately I’ve been obsessing over Beach Fossils‘ catalogue of new and old music, so naturally I was quite pleased to see that they’ve just released another track. Now, this one won’t be on their heavily anticipated upcoming record, Somersault, but it is part of the ‘Our First 100 Days’ series, which benefits some pretty great charities that you can find out more about here.This song is everything you’d expect from Beach Fossils– mildly hazy vocals, angular guitars that slice through the mix, and steady, constant percussion. Like most Beach Fossils tracks, you’ll find yourself singing along in no time, or mimicking the groovy bass line with your fingers on the steering wheel. Come along with Beach Fossils on “Silver Tongue,” and then try and prepare yourself for Somersault, which will be out June 2nd via Bayonet Records.
Beach Fossils announced last month that they’ve got a new album on the horizon calledSomersault. Today, they’ve shared a new video for the second single off that release called “Saint Ivy,” which shows off a new sound for the band. There’s flute and strings tossed into the mix, which takes the band’s usual jangly rock to a whole new level. You can check out the interesting video and listen to a different side of Beach Fossils below– I’m stoked for the new album knowing that from these two singles we can expect a blend of old and new sounds from the group.

While I’ve been a long time fan of Beach Fossils, I can say that this new track pleasantly surprised me– it’s a winner from start to finish. I know this song will be all over the internet, but it’s so important that you take a listen that it warranted a post. When you click on “This Year,” below, you’ll be greeted with tightly woven guitar riffs and those infamous barely-there vocals. Then you get about a minute in and you get these string sounds that provide a goosebumps inducing reprieve from those jangly guitars. The lyrics on this tune are also exceptionally moving and apt as New Year’s resolutions have probably faded now that we are in March; “This year I told myself it’d be a better one/try not to fall back onto the knife.” It’s not only a great indie rock gem, but it’s got an emotive side you shouldn’t skip out on. The band’s new album, Somersault, will be out June 2nd via Bayonet Records.
With the daily temperature peaking at 105 most days, we can tell that summertime is upon us. When this season hits, I always look forward to all the summer-release beers that show up on the shelves. Many beer companies take advantage of their customer’s need for a refreshing brew during the summer heat, and beer is definitely the best way keep cool and unwind after a long, hot day. I enjoy looking around hoping to find a cheery and delightful depiction of a summer paradise on the label, and give it a try. Good summer beer isn’t just light and drinkable, but is easy to pair with barbeque and poolside sipping.
Several ATH folks and friends gathered around to conduct a summer beer taste-testing session, and selected 11 beers to complete our ratings. We realize this does not encapsulate every single summer seasonal, but we grabbed what we could find. We were served a sample, discussed the flavor, created a nickname and rated it as follows: Great Summer Beer, Average and Never Again. Read more
