Just because you've been clamoring for the forgotten pop of the 70's as it existed on the AM radio dial, NPR Music is bringing us the new album from Beachwood Sparks, The Tarnished Gold, streaming as a full album right now. It's being released on Sub Pop Records next week. So put the top down on the convertible and take a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway with Beachwood Sparks. This is the mellowest of mellow vibes for your Monday.
Sub Pop Records says "The world has caught up to Beachwood Sparks since they came out of nowhere in 2000 with their self-titled debut album, bringing new life to what Gram Parsons famously described as “cosmic American music,” and recapturing L.A.‘s laidback but vibrant heyday back in the late ’60s and early ’70s. At the time, this kind of harmony-rich, irony-free music was rare."
NPR Music is more modern in its comparison, saying "The Tarnished Gold is an album for right now — a subtle but crucial ingredient to enhance and accompany your June sunsets, July drives and August barbecues."
