The Skinny: Blisses B are a quartet from San Francisco/Oakland, CA who released their brand new full-length LP, Sea Level Astronomy, on September 30th, 2014. This is the group’s third record and is the culmination of more than a year of songwriting, recording, and producing, intertwined with regular live performances. The San Francisco Bay Area psychedelic folk quartet completed the album with support from their loyal fan base through a Kickstarter Campaign.

Sea Level Astronomy centers on the theme of what appears to be underdog perspectives and the unexpected findings those perspectives can produce. A vantage point that appears limited by physical location and mindset is very capable of feats on an epic scale, such as a sea-level observatory discovering a Jupiter-sized planet. Considering possibilities from other perspectives than our own can have a profound impact on art, music, stargazing, anything.
