Generationals : Heza

New Orleans duo Generationals have come up the old-fashioned way, honing their skills and building a reputation through hard work and perseverance, and third full-length Heza could be the one that sees everything snap into place for them. Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer’s first release for Polyvinyl Records (out April 2) has something for everybody – sleek indie rock (“Awake”), trashy bubblegum punk (“I Used To Let You Get To Me”), wonky Kraut-pop (“Say When”), dreamy electro (“You Got Me”) and even Vampire Weekend-esque Afro-dub (“Kemal”) – but, like Spoon or the Shins before them, the band assimilate all these various elements into an impressively cohesive whole and stamp their name all over it. Watch the video for “Put A Light On”, and listen to racing surf-rocker “Spinoza”, below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
