RIYL: Washed Out, Morgan Delt, The Holydrug Couple
Label: Remote Control
Melbourne multi-instrumentalist and bedroom pop psychedelicistÂ Nick SowersbyÂ contributed one hell of a debut album to the world back in 2014.Â Titled Wonder, Sunbeam Sound Machine crafted a series of guitar tones completely submerged in reverb,Â levitating in a weightless ambience ofÂ billowing synths and nonnative sonics.Â It was so good that Echo Drug Recordings reissued the record 2 years later with new artwork and vinyl colorways, in turn gaining a wider fanbase.Â Some of those vinyl variants fetchÂ some pretty highÂ dollar now on the secondary market.
Almost 5 years since that legendary debut, Sowersby is ready to hand us his much-anticipated sophomore follow-up.Â Titled Goodness Gracious, expect more of those swirling guitar leads and infectious hooks you fell hard for on Wonder.Â First available track Talking Distance swoons with multi-layeredÂ dreamgaze aesthetics, engulfing Sowersby’s perfectly subdued vocal delivery.Â I’m f-ing hyped.
BandcampÂ is already sold out of the baby blue vinyl colorway, but they are also available from Artist Direct HERE.Â I’m not sure of the quantity yet, but I’d grab a copy now and ask questions later.Â It’s shipping from Australia, so it’ll run just over $40 shipped if you’re stateside.Â Worth every penny, though.Â Don’t miss out on this one!
UPDATE – The baby blue vinyl is sold out across the board, but the black vinyl (limited to 100 copies ) is still available.Â The ‘buy’ link has been updated.
