Album of the Month: The Sea Life "In Basements"

Album of the Month: The Sea Life "In Basements"


With the weather causing chaos across the coast and the continuous onslaught of headache inducing fucking political ads, stress needs relief ASAP, and I got it in one listen to DC's the Sea Life's latest In Basements. These indie-poppers produced 10 tracks worthy of pausing your hectic life to relax in the warmth of layers of dreampop shoegaze and fuzz.

The track "The Collector" is a total standout, with chill guitar pluckage and a chorus of oohs & aahs in the background while lyrics say "Well I cant find another way out, I change my mind, I lost my patience..."

"Sex Appeal Pt. 1" is a gorgeous instrumental piece that inevitably had me succombed to a reclined state of mind before bleeding into "Body Language Pt. 2" a nod to 90's college radio nostalgia. Most excellent.

And "Magic Weapon" is one of those classic dreampop tracks that leads into an epic build-up of splendor and super clean feedback. -Dawn
