Six new songs from Beachwood Sparks, featuring new/original (he played drums for the band’s first couple of shows) drummer Jimi Hey, and recorded by electronic whiz-kid Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL/Figurine/The Postal Service). Dragging in elements of Spiritualized and The Velvet Underground (increasing the cosmic in their blend of “Cosmic American Music”), these may be their most wistful, beautiful songs yet.
