Show Review

The release of their self-titled LP in 2010 introduced the world to Beach Fossils' Dick Dale twanged, New Wave inspired surf rock: a frenetic sound, although then unique, has now become quite prevalent in the indie scene. But where this Brooklyn-based four-piece set themselves apart was through their Johnny Rotten-esque turbulent attitutes: a trait that's been upheld in their 2013 sophomore folow-up, Clash the Truth. Led by the melancholic growl of Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils embody a liveliness and urgency that's shared by a majority of their generation. We witnessed this energy live in Austin at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. We suggest sticking around til the final minutes to see the extent of Beach Fossils' volatility - where an explosive bout ends with a crippled drum kit.

Transcript

Life can be so vicious that we can't
even appreciate its purities We get so excited that we can't feel any
of our insecurities All of what you said, it went right over
my head and now I'm gone It feels like an attack when I'm asking
for it back, I know Dream, rebel, trust, youth, free, life,
clash, truth Real, time, gone through, peace, piss,
shine, proof Clash, truth, lush, you, lost time, so
confused Charge, train, hate, proof, nothing real,
nothing true Dream, rebel, trust, youth, free, life,
clash, truth Real, time, gone through, peace, piss,
shine, proof Clash, truth, lush, you, lost time, so
confused Charge, train, hate, proof, nothing real,
nothing true Nothing real, nothing true
Nothing real, fuck all of you
- This song is dedicated to South by Southwest.
It's called "Generational Synthetic.
" Hustle in the five old years Do you love and do you fear?
All your working inspiration Systematic exploration
Words are great, words are real Words are desperate, make a deal
All your words are so poetic Generational synthetic
And I will do it on my own again And I will say what I will
And I will do it on my own again And I will say what I will
All my friends are far away
Hits my head in disobey I can help but to forget
What is now and what is next Train a fortune for a soul
What we wanted all along All your words are so magnetic
Generation apathetic And I will do it on my own again
And I will say what I will
And I will do it on my own again And I will say what I will
And I will do it on my own again And I will say what I will
- Thank you.
I want to awake I am too away
And when I say I go away and I can't
stay I know I'm done, I'm done
And when you say you'll stay awake and we're away
I know it's done, so done
I won't sit here I won't be here
I won't take it I won't take it
I won't sit here I won't be here
I won't take it I won't break it
In two Awake
I'm too Away
I won't sit here I won't stay here
I won't sit here In two
- Thanks.
Say I want and I will burn you down Say I want and I will burn you down
You say you know you're right or wrong
But do you care anymore? And now you only stand alone
Because I won't dare enter your war
You say you know you're right or wrong But do you care anymore?
But now you only stand alone Because I won't dare enter your war
Say I want and I will burn you down Say I want and I will burn you down
Thank you.
Can I get some more guitar on the monitors, please? Very, very loud.
It's so hazy While you're breathing
Where are you going? You're still dreaming
If they found out,
What would you say? But you don't care
These are your days
Don't want to hear about your time Just want to show you what's mine
I want to take it not too far, but I want to take it not to far
I know it's what you want
Don't want to hear about your time Just want to show you what's mine
I want to take it not too far, but I want to take it not too far
I know it's what you want
I want to hear Bad times
I want to share Bad times
And when I say it's okay I can make it go away
So I said it's all okay Because I know it's not today
