Late last year my friend Matthew at Terrorbird sent me the Beacon EP No Body (now available for free download) and it immediately became a playlist staple. Truth be told I couldn’t get enough of it. I found it soothing as background music and deeply rewarding on headphones. The production quality alone set them apart from the crowd but the songs continued to grow on me the more I listened to them, slowly becoming one of my favorite releases of the year. At that time Beacon were an unsigned Brooklyn duo with a Tumblr, a Bandcamp page and a lot of buzz so I was very happy when Ghostly decided to give them a home. Their new EP For Now picks up right where the last one left off with expertly crafted, bass heavy, after dark love songs that sound tailor made for right now. Highly recommended.
