This is Generationals third album, and their first for Polyvinyl Records, the indie pop giant that is also home to Japandroids, of Montreal, STRFKR, etc. The label change suits them well.

I'd classify it overall as a synth pop/indie pop/electronica album, although they've also thrown in some appealing lo-fi fuzz guitar and vocal distortion on a couple tracks, especially the slightly psychedelic "I Never Know".

Standout tracks: "Spinoza" (upbeat jangly guitar-driven indie pop perfection), "Extra Free Year", "Say When", "Awake" & "I Used To Let You Get To Me".

I've had the vinyl/mp3 pre-order in hand for almost a week now, and have listened to it constantly. Easily one of my most played albums of 2013 so far.

It's not unusual for bands to bring the volume down over time; many an artist will burst out of the gate all vim and vigor only to slow things down a bit. Less sugar up front and more of an experience to be savored. After two poppy, hook-laden releases, Generationals have followed suit with the understated "Heza", a collection of tracks that mostly trade the feel-good vibe of the first two albums for a more subdued tone.

The album leads off with the deceptively-placed "Spinoza", which sounds more or less like a continuation of the sounds that came before. It's not long before the new reality sets in, however, with tracks like "You Got Me", which has the catchy elements to be another bubblegum indie pop gem but instead keeps it relatively quiet while working in samples from a speech by futurist Buckminster Fuller. "Extra Free Years" shows the benefit of the more subdued approach, a patient and knowing track that makes every moment count in its roughly 3 minute runtime. This is emblematic of the approach throughout the album. No Stax-style horn sections; no joyous handclap choruses; just the Generationals leaning back, assembling pop songs that are no less expertly crafted for the subtle approach.

It's a bit disappointing that there are none of the jittery, jumpy singalongs like "Nobody Could Change Your Mind" or "Ten-Twenty-Ten" on "Heza", but this is still clearly the same band with the same talent. They've just chosen to make an album that doesn't repeat the two that came before it, and it's hard to fault them for that.

Love this one so much. I have had it on replay since I got it. If you want something bouncy and joyous this is for you. Give it a try if you have never listened to Generationals. You won't regret it and come on, it's on Prime. Do it. Do it now.

These guys are on fire. All of their albums are so good. Their music is reminiscent of past decades, but somehow with a modern twist and an unexpected consistency. Solid album. You wont be disappointed.
