Beach Fossils at 285 Kent Ave (more by Jessica Amaya)
Beach Fossils

Beach Fossils have the new What a Pleasure EP due on March 8th via Captured Tracks (out on iTunes now), and the band is heading to SXSW in celebration. Shortly after that, they'll team up with their labelmates Craft Spells for a US tour that will kick off with two NY shows. The first is on April 7th at Stony Brook University. The next is at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 8th. Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon (3/2), and regular sale on Friday. All dates are below.

Seattle's Craft Spells' self-titled LP is due March 29th on Captured Tracks (update: grab an MP3 above), and the band can also be seen supporting Cloud Nothings at Glasslands on April 9th, one day after the Music Hall show (Beach Fossils take that night off). Tickets are on sale.

For Cloud Nothings, that Glasslands show is one date of a month+ tour that also includes SXSW, dates with Toro y Moi and a late show at Mercury Lounge on April 12th. Cloud Nothings' debut self-titled full length is out now on Carpark Records. Check out the video for "Should Have" below.

Speaking of Carpark Records, they recently signed Young Magic who have a 7" on Bandcamp, and who play Glasslands in Brooklyn with Wise Blood TONIGHT (3/1). Look for them at SXSW too.

Take Me To The River (so I can find my bass)

Ezra Koenig called. He wants his hair back.
The guy from We Are Scientists called. He said to stop pretending you're him and trying to bang his wife from Au Revoir Simone.
BrooklynVegan comment board called. They want their boyish-faced hipster look back.

you pathetic attempt to start a BV meme is futile. i suggest you move on with your life. perhaps by saying "i like turtles" at the most random of moments.

beach fossils need to focus on writing original sounding music, rather than throwing basses in a river

worst band I've ever seen.

craft spells are actually from STOCKTON, one of the ugliest cities in CA. nastiest thing on I-5

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2011 1:01 AM

Justin Vallesteros isnt from Stockton hes from Lathrop

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2011 2:33 AM

don't get it twisted, don't condemn stockton just because you haven't known it. in seemingly empty, bleak places there is an opportunity to fill it

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2011 12:33 PM

Pavement is from Stockton
