Editorial Reviews

Generationals is the collaboration of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer (formerly of Eames Era). Oranges Band founder Daniel Black engineered and produced the record in the style of his heroes ? George Martin, Phil Spector, Jeff Lynn, and Quincy Jones ? with meticulous attention to detail and a willingness to make the recordings sound old. The result is one of those ""first record"" moments that blissfully wills its listeners into repeat listens. RIYL: Squeeze, The Shins, Weezer, Richie Valens.

Format: Audio CD
Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner, formerly of The Eames Era, have put together an amazing first album.

Drawing on influences ranging from Phil Spector's 'Wall of Sound' production techniques to the tight pop-rock tunesmithing of Paul Westerberg, the name Generationals is truly apropos; the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's are melted together in one big pot of catchy hooks and handclaps & 'Oooh, Oooh' backing vocals.

In the same retro-spective spectrum as The Strokes, The Killers and others, 'Con Law' blends modern indie sensibilities with dusty old 45rpm aesthetics to give the illusion that one is cleaning out a grandparent's attic only to stumble on a long-forgotten piece of vinyl.

Highlights include:
"When They Fight They Fight"- The song would not be out of place in the original "Hairspray" film.

"Wildlife Sculpture"

"Faces in the Dark"

This is a fun album and unlike Pandora schlock its catchy songs hold up over repeated listens and revisits. The instrumentation is inventive and interesting without being superfluous or there just to mask a void. I find the lyrics to be very rewarding. You can easily listen all the way through and enjoy every minute of it. Tell your lame and not lame friends alike to garb it now. I think these guys are barbarically under appreciated. Their EP and 2nd LP are also some how phenomenal.

This album is so very intelligently crafted. I was able to see these guys for free at a college concert I found out about. They were great live... not the most socially adept people, but what does that matter?

A great debut from another amazing Park the Van band. I was first turned onto Dr. Dog 3 years ago at Bonaroo, purchased one record and them all of them. Then I heard about the spinto Band who is also on the same label. Love them! Now Generationals...wow, When They Fight They Fight will be my summer jam.
