Following on from 2014's acclaimed debut Wonderer, Sunbeam Sound Machine's second LP Goodness Gracious is out through Dot Dash/Remote Control Records.

The recording project of Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Nick Sowersby, Sunbeam Sound Machine first garnered attention for 2013's One/Sunbeam Sound Machine double-EP, before Wonderer received widespread acclaim, leading to nationwide touring in Australia and the US with Sowersby's 5-piece live outfit.

Goodness Gracious is a self-produced affair, written, recorded and mixed by Sowersby in his home studio before being mastered by John Lee (Laura Jean, Lost Animal, Totally Mild) at Phaedra Studios. Sonically, Goodness Gracious trades in Wonderer's experimental headphone psychedelia for something at once more intimate and expansive, full to the brim with chiming guitars, glittering loops and warped, cinematic strings.

Sowersby says of Goodness Gracious: "I began working on this album in an exploratory way, recording for recording's sake until an album began to naturally take form. Along the way I found some sounds that it feels like I've been hearing in my head for years. The result is 11 songs that document a period of change, about what we look to for guidance, comfort and stability in uncertain times"
