Brooklyn bedroom pop pioneers Beach Fossils’ stand out EP, What a Pleasure, is being reissued for the first time since it’s 2011 release! Songwriter and composer Dustin Payseur’s upbeat follow up to his band’s self titled debut is a refined exploration of dreamy guitar sounds, lush synth arrangements, and confessional songwriting. Born out of late night jams with his bandmates and long time collaborator Jack Tatum (Wild Nothing), What a Pleasure expanded on Beach Fossils’ sonic landscape and resulted in some of Payseur’s most memorable tracks. The EP has gradually become a cult classic among fans of the band, and many of its songs still work their way into Beach Fossils’ live sets today.
This What a Pleasure reissue will be released on Payseur and his partner Katie Garcia’s own label, Bayonet Records, including a limited edition yellow vinyl pressing.
