Fell in love with the tarnished gold
The new Beachwood Sparks LP glistens. It’s the first album from the Los Angeles-based psych-country outfit in more than a decade — I don’t often reach for 2001’s Once We Were Trees, but their 2000 self-titled debut should sit on your shelf if you count yourself a piddling daydreamer, or just a fan of Buffalo Springfield’s Again. Tarnished Gold is cut from the same beaded cloth. Tranquil harmonies and pearly lap steel tones pair with double-tracked acoustics to find a bed under desert skies on this 13-tracker.
