Turtles, Magnets, Animals EP

by Sunbeam Rd.

/
  • "Some thick guitar distortion makes the track “Burial” enjoyably menacing, and “House Boats” works as a desolate, reverb-drenched piece of blissrock. “Waves”: A personal standout and one of the sweetest songs to creep into my ear all week." - Anthony Fantano http://www.theneedledrop.com

    "...entrancingly spaced-out song structures and whiffs of reverb and fuzz mingle with three-part vocals that at times harmonize with startling talkiness and dissonance. But unlike lots of local psych bands, there's a detectable deliberateness to what goes on here -- the noisy parts feel like they truly belong, the minimalist parts really do haunt, and several songs ramble with a charming, jacked-up pop sensibility..." -Ian S.

    "...Turtles, Magnets, Animals is a lush, rolling waltz of spaced-out indie jams and memorable hooks. Listening to the EP, I feel like I'm taking a peculiar walk through a damp night, passing through thoughts amidst brilliant reflections of streetlights and the stars overhead..." -Matt Gilles

    "...Sunbeam Rd. offers you five songs for free which can easily compete with for example the latest Arcade Fire..." -PIPPOKOLORES

Willing to fall apart completely exploring the margins of harmonic rock, their live shows can toe the edge of cacophony. At their best they reach into hook-laden, fuzz-saturated trance states. ... more
