New Half Mile Beach Group: “Monica”

Zushi’s finest, Half Mile Beach Group, easily could have sat back on their wonderfully windswept debut album Park C from this spring, as that one is loaded up with slow burning songs apt for the warmer months (even if they sometimes lean on the melancholy side). Yet here they are, with a new seven-plus-minute number called “Monica,” just in time for the heart of August. Featuring breezy guitar playing, woodwind flourishes and sampled vocals, “Monica” is a long-playing number that is easy-breezy until the guitars really get going late, the long build making the release all the more surprising (and powerful). Listen above, or get it here.
