The Generationals

This New Orleans-based band will release their album Con Law on July 21st and are currently touring with Floating Action this summer. Tour dates can be found on their myspace (and there's a ton of shows, mostly through the west and south). The Generationals consist of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, both previously from Eames Era. The album was recorded in style of producer Daniel Black's heroes - Quincy Jones and Phil Spector, for example- in order to give it that old sizzing pop-rock sound. The band features 12-string electric guitars, synth-bass, 8-bit sequencers, trumpet, hand-claps and shakers to get things going.
