Review | Tuesday 31 July 2012
Life moves in slow motion, time to smell the freshly mown grass, gaze at the stars and watch the ocean roll in. Welcome to the world of Beachwood Sparks and their warm, dreamy journey through summer afternoons or log fire winter nights.
The Tarnished Gold, their first release since 2003, sees the Californian band continue on from previous gems with more atmospheric, roots alt-rock, pedal-steel charm.
From the warm and beautiful opener, ‘Forget The Song’, to the sensitive closer, ‘Delicate’, and everything in between, Beachwood Sparks deliver a classic.
