The Sealevel - Beach from Last Summer - 2005



When I think of Berlin images of beaches, surfing, and lounging in the sun have never come to mind. Yet somehow Berlin based the Sealevel have managed to create an album mostly full of jangly guitars, Beach Boys-esque harmonies, some Teenage Fanclub buzz, and thoughts of summer and the beach. This debut album by the Sealevel seems to have a bit of a split personality with the first half being the upbeat, sunny days, beach boy and the second half being the more reflective, beach at sunset, man. That said, each half is quite solid and the mood of the moment may determine which songs work best. At the risk of sounding silly, the Sealevel bring us a day at the beach, high tide and low tide. Okay, that does sound silly."-PennyBlackMusic.

Bought this record when it was released. It's a sure grower. BTW, people involved here are also doing The Seaside Stars, which don't stray far away from this sound. But you probably knew that already... Curty, thanks a lot for your efforts...

As post above, this is a grower and gets better over time. Certainly a Teenage Fanclub vibe throughout the album. Very good album. thanks.
