Sand Pebbles

Monday 28 August 2017

Exploding from the eye of the universe, the band who notoriously formed on the set of Neighbours return with studio album number six – Pleasure Maps. Kasumuen Records is proud to release Sand Pebbles new album on 180gm, coloured vinyl and CD – the CD contains a bonus track, a cover of The Velvet Underground’s Oh! Sweet Nuthin’ featuring Amaya Laucirica on vocals.

Following sold out shows with the reformed Dave Graney & the Coral Snakes, founding Sand Pebbles’ members – Andrew Tanner, Ben Michael X and Christopher Hollow – got together with Dark Magic producer, Malcolm McDowell, to try out new songs. A note left under their door persuaded them to continue. For a band always looking for signs, this was enough to inspire headway, leading to the recording of Pleasure Maps.

Produced by the dynamic duo of McDowell and James Dean [who helmed 2008’s Ceduna], Pleasure Maps features guest appearances from local Melbourne identities such as Buried Feather’s Steve McLennan and cellist Gareth Skinner. It also includes fabulous performances from long-time Sand Pebbles Tor Larsen and Wes Holland, who recently exited to London.

Listen back to Homebrew for a live set from Sand Pebbles. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
