looking for fossils

Ya know those bands whose music gives you a particular reminiscent feeling that makes you lazily think "this is the music i'm gonna purchase on vinyl one day and bug my kids with in the future"? Since I was 13 Beach Fossils has been a heavy, homey part of my life, creating tunes that resonate with me on every level. They were the first band from the Captured Tracks label that I got into, and they were the gateway drug to other gems like Wild Nothing, DIIV, Craft Spells, Mac Demarco, and Perfect Pussy. From their obviously amazing musical creations to their cool, friendly personalities, Dustin, Jack, and the two Tommy's make life that much more rosy, and for that I'm eternally grateful. 

Shoutout to beach fossils for landing me my most successful tumblr text post 

And when they ask all the time
Say I'm doing just fine
Close your eyes and tell me how you feel
Can you feel the truth and is it real?

My first band tee next to my first band/bayonet records poster (also my first!) 

                  idk man i just love taking #natural #allreal #noedit pictures

my awesome mother took a picture of my outfit before I went to school a few mornings ago but too bad I usually look like a velociraptor at 8am. THERFORE I cropped in a less reptitilian version of my face <3

                bathtubs are seriously so slept on as prime locations for outfit pictures 

t-shirt: bayonet records
denim jacket: maurices--originally they were long sleeved but I cut em up
pants: forever 21
sandals: teva


bad black jacket brigade 

The other fitting fossils I've been looking for
ft. a clam named shelly
a snail shell named luke
(i do not just randomly name my stuff lol these were all school projects/dissections)
a native american arrow head with no name
a few leaves that were once so bright in the fall

 a new song that this band of boys hid in this incredible showcase, and every time I listen to it it's like uncovering it for the first time all over again
 (skip to 42:00)

peace out
