Radio San Francisco is the new 5-track mini-album from Californian psych-gaze stalwarts, Moonbeams.
A garage band in the purest sense, Moonbeams' music is entirely home recorded - and all the more remarkable for it. It's confidently produced; providing a brooding backdrop for some delicate songwriting.
Through a haze of simmering, intertwoven guitars, Radio San Francsisco is a intense exploration of distortion - melding space-rock with drone to thrilling effect. In many ways, Moonbeams are reminiscent of early Flying Saucer Attack - producing assured, yet raw DIY psych. From the driven dirge of Girl Upstairs to the hollow beauty of Want Me, these are lunar-guided melodies with added fizz and crackle.
With their debut long-player, The Daisy Chain, due for release on June 17th, Moonbeams are a hugely exciting prospect. Catch them on tour in California, this August.
