Dios' album Life Between The Tides. Available here on Standard Black LP.
Californian upstarts Dios not only play psychedelic beach-pop, they're also natives of the Beach Boys' hometown of Hawthorne - a collision of coincidence that would have rendered them annoyingly Californian were they not so independently great. Fusing squeaky electronics with acoustic guitars and soft, breathy vocals, Dios are dry and spacy, as indebted to Neil Young as they are to Brian Wilson. Constantly shifting focus - from earnest folk-singing to found-sound experimenting to deliquescent indie psych-pop - Dios are also stubbornly contemporary, a quirky, whimsical bit of California past, present & future. -Pitchfork
