Mellow 60s retro pop. Borderline indie-pop, I am dubbing it “alterna-pop”. Ethereal, nostalgic, atmospheric, bitter sweet sad. Vintage-sounding jangly reverby guitars and sustained organ chords. There’s an evasive folk feel. This is way too sugary pop but nothing wrong with that. I can see these guys hitting it big time mainstream one day. The over-produced vocals make me love and hate. This is like a mix of the Replacements, the Magnetic Fields, the Beatles, Simon Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Will Oldham and… gulp… the Wallflowers.|
Play 7, 9, 1, 5, 6, 8, 2.
1. Violin intro. Reverby guitars. Sugary psych-pop melodies
2. Sitar-like melodies. An ode to the Beatles classic LP Revolver? Nice keys.
3. Bob Dylanish chorus and organ hooks.
4. 1:30 min acoustic slow, folky-sounding, pop-instrumental.
5. Pretty Beatlesque, nostalgic, organ-driven, pop sentimental piece. Wah-wah effects
6. Delicate reverby guitars, nice vocal hooks. Pop melody.
7. Catchy lead guitar riff and overproduced vocals. The Replacements.
8. Jangly mid-tempo guitars, somber vocals and mood.
9. This makes me think… Magnetic Fields meet Will Oldham.
