“It’s a Wave” Announces 17-Track The Return of Dayvd Beach LP

The Return of Dayvd Beach is happening in a big way. Having released his debut single with Hyattsville, MD-based record label Growroom Productions in 2020, and having sated us with remixes and new singles since, we admittedly didn’t feel Dayvd had really left us.

Still, it is hard to ignore the fact that the eponymously titled LP, which became available today, carries with it the significant weight of 17 songs, each with their own story to tell, and the opportunity to highlight the artistic versatility that only an album can highlight to full effectiveness. It feels like an absolute necessity that fans appreciate the vast influences and inspirations of the artist, whose own music exists somewhere between the worlds of lo-fi, jazz, funk, electronic, and rock.

“It’s a Wave” conveys a timelessness akin to vintage radio while the push and pull between the drums and other instrumentation provide an ebb and flow found uniquely between rock & roll angst and the lighthearted and harmonious nod to surf rock.

Although “It’s a Wave” marked the official release date of the album, another single “Cool Blue” is already teasing the assortment of sounds and experiences within the LP. “[Cool Blue] offers an homage to the surrealist and low-fi futurism classic by Michel Gondry, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Beach’s music brings us back to the naval-gazing heartache and longing of the film’s star-crossed lovers…”

GLOSSER Releases Deluxe Edition of Debut Record, DOWNER

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
