Beachwood Sparks – Tarnished Gold (Sub Pop)

After having put the band on hold for a decade while their members pursued other interests, Americana-pop band Beachwood Sparks return with an absolutely gorgeous record. Listening to Tarnished Gold, it is easy to pick out shades of America, Neil Young and the Byrds however the group doesn’t lean upon any one of these artists in a derivative way. Firmly subscribers to the “less is more” mentality, Beachwood Sparks craft many unforgettable moments here including Nature’s Light, Sparks Fly Again and Water From The Well.
