Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner are celebrating their 10th anniversary as Generationals this summer with their 5th full length titled Reader As Detective.Â Generationals are a formative part of that late aughts tribe that brought danceable, slightly tropical, harmony-driven indie pop to a mainstream audience.Â Their newest track I Turned My Back on the Written Word follows down that familiar vector, coasting on a playful piano and flute back-and-forth with a sweeter-than-a-Bahama-Mama chord progression.Â You may be surrounded by blankets of gray clouds and tsunami winds this month, but fear not…Generationals are helping usher your summers in earlier than expected.
Polyvinyl Records, per usual, has an early bird vinyl variant limited to 500 copies for all of you beach bodies and diehards.Â Pink & clear color-in-color wax?Â Well, that sounds downright heavenly.Â Take a listen to their first single below and pick up an aural frisbee after the ‘buy’ link.
