Sunbeam Rd. – “Waves”

Sunbeam Rd. – “House Boats”

We’re currently in the middle of this great moment of exciting young SF rock bands that draw on post-punk and/or shoegazer influences without attempting to clone Joy Division, Jesus & Mary Chain, or My Bloody Valentine. I’m thinking of local bands like Weekend, The Baths, Skeletal System, and Young Prisms, and now there’s another name to add to that list: Sunbeam Rd.. Fans of brainy/brawny/synthy rock, take note, the SF/Oakland band has released the Turtles, Magnets, Animals EP today for free download from its Bandcamp page and as a limited edition cassette tape. Check it out:
