Beach Fossils, a band whose reverb-slicked indie pop compares favorably to acts like Surfer Blood, Best Coast and the Drums, formed in 2009 as a vehicle for the solo recordings of Dustin Payseur. Bassist John Pena and guitarist Christopher Burke were brought into Beach Fossils’ lineup later that year, after Payseur had single-handedly put together the recordings that would comprise the group’s first album. Beach Fossils’ debut 7″ single, Daydream/Desert Sand, was released on Captured Tracks in February 2010; their self-titled album was released on the same label later that year.

Minks is the perfect mixture of goth, lo-fi and 80′s revival. Their songs spark up memories of a late night good time on the shore and not just bedroom dance party.

Formed in New York in 2003 by Brad Hargett and J.B. Townshend, the Crystal Stilts were a multi-influenced indie rock band that released its first work — some singles and an EP — in 2004 on the Feathery Tongue label. The first single, “Shattered Shine,” was followed by a series of local shows, and after an EP — all eventually collected in one place on the self-titled full-length 2008 release — added Kyle Forrester on keyboards (for live gigs, anyway) and Andy Adler to take on bass duties. Finally, the group added a drummer — Frankie Rose, formerly of the Vivian Girls– shortly thereafter.
