    This kind of music is probably a cliche in the actual times. But, cliche or not, Beach Fossils manage to entertain you for a couple of good tracks, and some tripping psychedelia manners.

  1. Beach Fossils may be very 2010 but they aren't just along for the ride, they're driving the bandwagon.
  2. This is the sound of sun-stunned drift, as opposed to slacker ennui. Such a formula could make for an enervating listen, but this debut album is shot through with casually glorious melodies.
  3. I'm not sure what this one will sound like when the heat lets up--but what matters for now is that Beach Fossils have crafted a breezy and charming debut that renders such questions, at least for right now, unimportant.
