1. Diiv is a side project by Zachary Cole Smith from Beach Fossils and manages to escape the realm of its true bedroom production to transport you to a place with no boundaries.  Oshin, released a few months ago, has an interesting tone to it - the emphasis on creating all-encompassing, overwhelming tracks is unmistakable.  It’s not quite a wall of sound, nor is it a sea of sound.  It’s more like a lagoon of sound, all washing over you as you blissfully try to interpret what’s going on.  It could easily be an instrumental album, so important is this impressionism to its essence whilst the vocals pale into the mix, and gives a nod to great sides to Smith’s creativity and hopefully more good things to come from Diiv in the future.
