RIYL: Washed Out, Morgan Delt, The Holydrug Couple
Label: Remote Control
Melbourne multi-instrumentalist and bedroom pop psychedelicist¬†Nick Sowersby¬†contributed one hell of a debut album to the world back in 2014.¬† Titled Wonder, Sunbeam Sound Machine crafted a series of guitar tones completely submerged in reverb,¬†levitating in a weightless ambience of¬†billowing synths and nonnative sonics.¬† 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.¬† Some of those vinyl variants fetch¬†some pretty high¬†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.¬† Titled Goodness Gracious, expect more of those swirling guitar leads and infectious hooks you fell hard for on Wonder.¬† First available track Talking Distance swoons with multi-layered¬†dreamgaze aesthetics, engulfing Sowersby’s perfectly subdued vocal delivery.¬† I’m f-ing hyped.
Bandcamp¬†is already sold out of the baby blue vinyl colorway, but they are also available from Artist Direct HERE.¬† I’m not sure of the quantity yet, but I’d grab a copy now and ask questions later.¬† It’s shipping from Australia, so it’ll run just over $40 shipped if you’re stateside.¬† Worth every penny, though.¬† 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.¬† The ‘buy’ link has been updated.
