Night Beats, “Who Sold My Generation”

Available: Select tracks streaming now; LP and CD available Jan. 29

Label: Heavenly Recordings/PIAS

“Who Sold My Generation,” the third proper full-length from Seattle’s (by way of Texas) psych, R&B and garage chameleons Night Beats is one of my Most Anticipated Records of 2016. Following up two better-than-solid efforts (released for like-minded labels Trouble In Mind and The Reverberation Appreciation Society) has appropriately set up the stripped-down three piece for a whole new legion of fans. The pre-released digital seven-inch features two album tracks, “Power Child” and “Sunday Mourning” and are comparable in a hard-charging but smartly reined-in psychedelia. These are not meandering dirges, but rather acute, pointed and direct rock ’n’ roll cuts filtered through a modicum of effects pedals. The record was recorded straight to two-inch tape – as opposed to the often shiny tin of recent digital techniques – in Echo Park, California, at the home studio of Nic Jodoin (Spindrift, Desert Noises, Black Lips, etc.) and features co-production credit and limited guest bass playing from Robert Levon Been of The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Recommended if you like The Black Angels, 13th Floor Elevators, Black Lips or The Growlers
