Label: Alive Naturalsound
How does an album like this go unheard? While often tagged as psychedelic throwback country a la Gram Parsons or The Byrds, Beachwood Sparks sounds like perfect power pop on this debut. Tracks like the propulsive, organ-haunted "Watery Moonlight" or the epic "Midsummer Daydream," with its expert guitar solos and Keith Moon-style drum boasts, find the missing link between Elephant 6 and King Khan with 13th Floor Elevators-style warped riffage. Meanwhile, "Make It Together" and "This Is What It Feels Like" would sandwich nicely between Teenage Fanclub and the Posies, even disguised as a cowboy.
