Beach Fossils @ Rickshaw Stop

Glistening, guitar-heavy shoegaze is what this Brooklyn quartet knows and does best. Formed in 2009, the lo-fi Beach Fossils quickly made a name for themselves with their hazy, atmospheric production and frontman Dustin Payseur’s whispered, muffly vocals. Though they suffered blows in 2010 and 2011 when a number of their members — including drummer Zachary Cole Smith, who now fronts the indie-rock act DIIV — left the band, Beach Fossils bounced back quickly, adding equally skilled replacements to fill the gaps. With only two studio albums under their belt, you might be wondering why you haven’t heard much from this indie act in a while. The answer? They’re busy performing their supporting role on the HBO series, Vinyl. And you can’t blame them for that.
