The Beach Fossils self-titled first album was a refreshing debut from a band that had at that point been on our radar for a year. It was a well-received 80’s influenced indie-pop album that was fairly straightforward fun. But if you expected the band to make the same album over and over again, you’ll likely be disappointed in the new Beach Fossils album Clash The Truth. Dustin Payseur is a student of music — he’s both a collector of vast quantities of vintage vinyl and a sponge for knowledge. I’ve had both conversations about obscure 80’s music with Dustin and seen the incredible list of songs on his laptop. This is a performer who knows his craft and understands its history. So it should really come as no surprise that Clash is a more mature and focused album than its predecessor. And as with much of the early 80s Brit post-punk that influences this album, it also has a bit of sneer. Fortunately though, much of the band’s fan base seems to understand and accept the band’s admirable growth. On Saturday night, Beach Fossils sold out Bowery Ballroom and delivered a performance that featured much of Clash and a healthy dose of older material. Dustin has integrated two new members into the band and the new material is just gathering momentum live, but overall the band delivered a solid set with many highlights. Beach Fossils are on tour in the East but return to NYC for a show at 285 Kent this Sunday, March 3.

I recorded this set with my new Neumann TLM-102 large diaphragm cardioid microphones from our usual spot in this venue, and mixed with a fine board feed. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
