Inspiration for the debut "Electric Beach" came from the songs this band first rehearsed in the garages of Palmdale. These dream pop gems had been floating around as demos until the band finally decided to give them a proper recording to satisfy old fans. There are also some new recordings on this 10+1 bonus track album.
Sunshine Factory is brothers Jordan and Corey Judge, and John Karwoski. Releases for Culdesac Kids include Lower Away 7”, the Unplugged & Remixed EP, and the Realize EP. This is the band's debut album.
With a band name like Sunshine Factory, optimistic tunes aren’t far behind. Brothers Corey and Jordan Judge along with John Karwoski and Tony Hammons from Palmdale offer their take on beachy pop music and in a scene where lo-fi gear and distortion is now amusingly associated with the genre, their solid throwback vibe to the Beach Boys is a breath of fresh air. It will take more than a few apathetic hipsters to taint the good name of power-pop. Sunshine Factory sounds like they’re on our side.
Oh So Fresh! Music
Here comes some awesome dreamy pop from Los Angeles band Sunshine Factory. In the world of music, the band is fairly young, only fully coming together in 2009 as a complete band. They would self release a demo and start playing as many clubs as possible. Sunshine Factory just released a debut 7-inch with side A containing the song "Lower Away" and side B with the track "Tidal Waves."
The track "Lower Away" is a brilliant nugget of pop that delivers right to your ears. The piano is arranged perfectly and was my main draw to the song. It has this happy bounce to it that will sure have you playing the song numerous times. You can hear influences from everything like The Beach Boys, The Fray, and even Radiohead. Listen to "Lower Away" below.
