Beachwood Sparks : Make The Robot Cowboys Cry
Exceptional acid-fried alt.pop
Spinning wildly away from the psychedelic western soundtrack trappings of the Byrds ‘Notorious Byrd Brothers’ LP through the sticky heat of ’80s one-album wonders the Meat Puppets’ equally superb ‘Up On The Sun’, the Beachwood Sparks present their own unique tapestry of Mezcal-soaked Americana. It’s occasionally unnerving but in the infinite twists of the extraordinary ‘Drinkswater’ and the strangely alluring ‘Ghost Dance 1492’, here is imagination running as wild as the prairie. Ride ‘em, cowboys.
