beach fossils - what a pleasure

beach fossils.... one of my favourite bands in 2010 are about to return with a brand new 8-track ep entitled "what a pleasure". i was a bit worried about them coming back as something completely new... but no no no... they are still the same, just a bit better than before. their new ep might not sound that rough anymore. everything is more laid back and i do see a bit of a growing minimalism in their sound. sometimes less is more. the whole ep is like a short trip to the beach on a cool spring morning....while the sun rises and waft of mist draw back onto the open sea. i want more of this... it's so good and really puts me in a very very special humour. "what a pleasure", "fall right in" and "adversity" are my highlights.
