If you’re like us, the best summer days are spent staring into the sky for hours while watching clouds morph slowly into Ulysses characters. We don’t want to be pummeled into submission by summer—or summer music—which is why Celestial Shore’s brisk and twinkling 10x (out September 3 on Hometapes) is our late-season fave rave. Performed by Greg Albert (bass), Max Almario (drums), and Sam Owens (guitar), 10x is a prog-pop gem of smart concision that Deerhoof and Dirty Projectors fans would do well to access while it’s still summer because, as they sing in “Valerie,” “The beach is no fun in New York when it’s fall/And I wish I never had met you at all.”
