New Music | Generationals – Lucky Numbers

[L]ast we heard from Generationals, they had released one of my favorite albums of last year, Actor Castor. I’m so pleased to have finally heard they are releasing new music, in the form of an EP. Check out “Lucky Numbers,” a shimmering, pop number that has a bit of an electronic feel a la Passion Pit.

Top Albums of 2011 5-1 FINALLY!

We all love lists, and we all love sarcasm. Though, I think its important to reflect upon the last year of music, I’m going to do so through the use of a list. It was a fantastic year full of awesome albums, and I’m going to count down a bunch of my favorites, and give you something to listen to while reading. Welcome to the top 10, albums that to be quite honest, could all be number ones, but hey it wouldn’t be a list without some order. These are the thoroughbreds.

Review | Generationals – Actor-Caster

Ten-Twenty-Ten Greenleaf The Generationals have been on my radar since I first heard ‘When they Fight, They Fight,’ and to say I was excited to hear their Trust EP, and now their LP Actor-Caster would be an understatement. That being said… today marks the release date of ‘Actor-Caster,’ and to me this is their finest work to date.  The first track on the album ‘Ten-Twenty-Ten,’ sets a wonderful tone for this album.  It’s a bright & sunny jam with a driving rhythm that will have you bobbing your head and reaching for the repeat button.  ‘I promise’ is a jangly…

Video | Generationals – Ten-Twenty-Ten

Check out the strange video for Generationals’ Ten-Twenty-Ten; it looks like something from an early 90’s Television spot. Everything the Generationals have been putting out lately has been something that I’ve really gotten in to. More than interested in hearing what they’ve got coming as soon as their album Actor Castor hits shelves (March 29) on Park the Van Records.

New Music | Generationals – Greenleaf

Greenleaf After releasing their ‘Trust EP’ in late 2010 Generationals were already putting the finishing touches on their next album, entitled Actor-Castor.  This album is the summation of their recordings over the summer of 2010 and will be released next month (March 29).  This new track, is a delightfully shiny, playful track with poppy keyboards a bouncy bassline and steady drums.  Its got a slow & steady pace, but has bright vocal harmonies and handclaps reminiscent of 60’s pop music.

Generationals – Trust EP

Trust Park the Van indie rockers, Generationals released an EP a few weeks back, entitled Trust.  You may have heard their single Trust, I posted on it a few weeks ago. In their second release, Trust (EP), the band is transitioning from a jangling, sun-kissed sound to a more popcentric more hypnotic, textured, sound.  Based on the success of their hit ‘When they Fight They Fight,’ Generationals flushed out their sound with feedback loops, drum-machine beats and throbbing basslines. “When They Fight They Fight” may be Generationals’ early-career success, but songs like “Victim of Trap” and “Carrying the Torch,” put Generationals on…
