Iconic Australian psych rock quintet Beaches return with epic double LP Second Of Spring - Chapter Music's first ever double album by a single artist.
Beaches' much-loved second album She Beats brought the band interna- tional acclaim in 2013. Featuring guest guitar by German motorik hero Michael Rother (Neu, Harmonia), the album earned raves from Pitchfork, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs Bear, Spin and elsewhere.
Now Second Of Spring takes Beaches even further out, to where the pyramid meets the eye - a vast, enveloping sonic landscape, filled with extended instrumentals, overdriven psych-outs and propulsive pop nuggets.
The double album was recorded in Melbourne with engineer/producer John Lee (Totally Mild, Lost Animal) and mastered by David Walker. Artwork is by the band's own Ali McCann, with design by renowned artist Darren Sylvester.
Beaches' self-titled 2008 debut was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, and included in glossy coffee table book 100 Best Australian Albums. The band released a standalone 12" on New York label Mexican Summer in 2010. They have toured the US twice, playing SXSW and Austin Psych Fest, and shared stages with Roky Erickson, Deerhunter, The Cult, Thee Oh Sees, Lightning Bolt, Mogwai, Best Coast and more.
Already revered as sprawling, swirling psych overlords, Second Of Spring is Beaches' undeniable magnum opus.
