San Francisco’s jangle-gaze sensation, Seablite, has been mesmerizing audiences from the Golden Gate to Glasgow with their brand of dreamy fuzzed-out bliss and announce the re-issue of their long out of print debut album, “Grass Stains and Novocaine” on Dandy Boy Records.

Seablite formed in 2016 when Lauren Matsui (vocals / guitar) and Galine Tumasyan (vocals / bass) bonded over a mutual appreciation of early 90's Britpop and UK underground music and began writing songs together. Soon after Jen Mundy (ex-Wax Idols) joined on second guitar and drummer Andy Pastalaniec (Chime School) would round out the lineup. Their debut album “Grass Stains and Novocaine” was released in the summer of 2019 and sold out of its initial pressing almost immediately. The album wowed critics and made them friends and fans throughout the US and across the sea in the UK. Since then the band has performed as part of Chick Factor Magazine’s 30th anniversary shows in New York and London, opened for the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Charlatans and Ladytron upon their recent Bay Area visits and has released a new 10” EP, a 7” single and most recently their much anticipated sophomore album, “Lemon Lights” (MT. ST. MTN).

After being unavailable and out of print for nearly four years, “Grass Stains and Novocaine” has found a new home on Dandy Boy Records. Repressed on vinyl and remastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) the album sounds bigger and better than ever. This new version of “Grass Stains” showcases the band’s noisy beginnings and highlights their love for My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Blur and Ride. The guitars sound more aggressive and textured while the low end is far more present and driving, doing justice to Matt Bullimore’s (ex-Mantles) original mix and allowing a second chance at a first impression.
