What is it with this surf fetish everyone is into lately? All I hear is some raw, backyard jam about the beach, and if this isn't summer I don't know what is. Surfing doesn't mean much to me, but it seems to inspire this kind of, not hippie, or burnout sloppiness, but just pop joy. It seems like a lot of work to get up early and swim all day, waiting forever for something to happen out of your control, but maybe this comes out of that a little. Don't force it, you'll get a shot, it won't be perfect but maybe just for yourself it's going to be right.
Really, it doesn't have to be all about the depression, or glitchy creepiness of electronics, there's room in your life for something randomly catchy, out of tune, and full of desperate fun. It feels homemade in it's nonchalance. It doesn't have to be about winning, it's the seven inches along the way.
Sandy City debut 7" out now or whatever.
3 songs of loud surf punx, indie pop, or something.
It's on Prty Ngg Records. They released a City Center 7", it's got a good song.
Sandy City is from Westport, Washington or maybe we're not.

Playing 3 shows in Seattle in April, that's more than we've probably ever played previously.

Next album is called New Dog Rising. Goodbye.
