On their new EP, “Chime,” San Francisco surf rock quintet Sandy’s sound like Big Star in Big Sur. Glassy open tunings are buoyed by bouncing drum fills and soaked in resonant moog flourishes. Singers Alexi Glickman and Dave Muller visit Jah, existential dread, and the 80-foot blue whale that washed up at their home surf break.

Part art happening, part recording session, Chime was recorded live by the band (with additional members Burton Li, Cody Rhodes, Sam Buchanan) in Glickman’s seaside cabin over a long weekend. Inspired in part by the films of Christopher Guest, Glickman laid out loose framework of chords and melody, and let his intrepid cast do the rest.

“My favorite live shows remind me of Christopher’s movies. You can feel when the cast is having fun, when it’s awkward, when they’ve lost the plot—everything you see is authentic— is really happening. I wanted to make a record like that. I wanted to capture as much spontaneous magic as I could— and it meant really laying off trying to control the process,” recalls Glickman.

Free courtyard events are supported in part with a grant from the Stinson-Boilnas Community Fund. Beer generously provided by Lagunitas Brewing.
