BEST LOCAL BAND SIGNED TO WOODSIST THAT YOU HAVEN’T HEARD YET: Beach Fossils
Love it or hate it, the unforeseen popularity of bands like Vivian Girls and Wavves has turned Woodsist’s signature scuzzy sound into one of the defining characteristics of Brooklyn’s current music scene. Dustin Payseur works under the name Beach Fossils, and his upcoming debut will be released on the label. From here, you can pretty much imagine how he sounds: lazy, gurgled vocals and simple, shimmery melodies are blanketed by just the right amount of reverb to give songs a sepia-toned, nostalgic feel that makes you swear it’s 1962 and you’re away at summer camp.
