A whiplashing rollercoaster in which the rails our wheels spark upon aren’t reinforced steel but are instead the twisting and twisted double-helix of the Pretty Flowers’ spiraling sonic DNA, the Golden Beat Sessions is a furious cassette-ready snarl of a rock band’s audio-biography (even the album art is a nod to an old and treasured R.E.M. bootleg disc). Prism-ing the group’s knotty-fuzzy lo-fi punch and hi-fi heart into a series of component parts, Golden Beat explores the individual nooks and crannies of the Los Angeles foursome’s sound by using the songs of others as their magnifying glasses: 

The raucous, sugar-stamped stomp of Teenage Fanclub’s “Radio” lets the band dive deep into the power-pop that’s always bubbled beneath their sonic surface, while the bloody gnash of “Doom Town” by the Wipers barrels down the band’s darkest alleyways of frayed-denim punk. Elsewhere, the barstool blues of Neil Young’s “Don’t Cry No Tears” allows the Flowers to lean further into the woozy swoon of classic rock’s heavy-lidded swagger than they ever have before.

And while “I Got You” by Split Enz highlights the band’s knack for soulful anthemics and Nick Lowe’s “Heart of the City” is their nerve-jittered indie rockiest, it’s ethereal lead single “Scott Street” (originally by Phoebe Bridgers) that reveals the wistful, melodic, and melancholy grooves that ache within the heart of every Pretty Flowers song, and their loyal listeners—which, if you aren’t already, you will be after your first ear-ringing listen of Golden Beat Sessions.

Shipping, Returns & Cancellations


We ship Monday through Friday. Orders typically ship within 24-72 hours. Tracking is sent to the email you provide at check out and may take a few days to become active.

Any items ordered with Pre-Orders will be held until they can all ship together. If you need in stock items faster please order them seperately.


Returns are only accepted on damaged or defective items. Return requests must be made within 7 days of delivery. Please save the original packaging.

If you own a Crosley, Victrola or any other lower end turntable that has no ability to adjust the weight of the tone arm and are experiencing skipping on a new record please try the "Penny Trick". Simply place a penny on the top of the cartidge and it should provide enough weight to resolve your issues. While a great entry to the world of vinyl we do recommend upgrading to a turntable with a tone arm that can be adjusted as this issue will randomly occur. We do not take returns in these cases.

Resellers: If you are buying from us for resale we honestly don't mind. However, please don't panic if something you bought suddenly isn't flipable for more money and then try to return stuff to us because you feel like you made a bad investment choice. Despite our outsized reputation we're a small shop, not amazon. Absorbing these costs adds up on places like ours. Plus a little patience always tends to pay off.


Due to an increasing number of payment processors no longer returning transaction fees to sellers on cancelled orders and rising labor costs any orders or pre-orders that need to be cancelled before shipment will be assessed a 5% cancellation/restocking fee on the order total including shipping and any other taxes or fees associated with the order.

Thank you for your understanding.
