Glass Beach have covered “Beach Life In Death’ by Car Seat Headrest. All 14 minutes of it. The track is part of their Patreon where fans can vote on which songs the band covers, along with a bunch of other perks including exclusive access to new music and video content.

Genreless and just as disjointed as it is cohesive, the first Glass Beach album was initially self-released by the band in the spring of 2019, but it’s roots actually date back to as early as 2015 when songwriter and band leader “Classic” J McClendon (they/them) started demoing tracks for the album when they first moved to Los Angeles from their hometown of Burleson, Texas.

Bassist Jonas Newhouse and drummer William White heard J’s solo project, casio dad on their college radio station at the University of Minnesota Morris in 2016 and liked it so much they decided to move into an apartment with J (who had spent the last year living on a friend’s couch) in Los Angeles, start a band together, and spend the next three years refining J’s demos into an album. Shortly after the album was finished, Layne Smith joined on lead guitar, playing parts originally performed on the album by J to help flesh out the band’s live sound, and quickly becoming a key piece to the band’s cohesion.
