agutterfan Superb & sunny pysche-pop, the album's ambition heralded by the opening "Heart Strings" with its backward tapes & gorgeous synth strings, which is followed by 10 tracks that perfectly capture "that striped sunlight sound". Favourite track is a toss up between "Talking Distance" with its garage band guitar opening & snare, and "Hold Me Back", which ends with stunningly beautiful ascending synth strings. A put on your headphones & chill out on a warm summer evening delight. Favorite track: Talking Distance.

Fabio Viola If these sounds were a material they would be memory foam. You lay on them and they will make you comfortable. Favorite track: Other Kindness.

Crash M One of the most underrated albums this year. Deceptively simple psych-pop that does everything right. Play it quiet for a breezy listen or play it loud and lose yourself in layers of guitar & synth texture. Lyrics are beautifully poignant too. Favorite track: Hold Me Back.

Following on from 2014’s acclaimed debut Wonderer, Sunbeam Sound Machine’s second LP Goodness Gracious is out Friday May 3rd 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”
