New Orleans natives Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer struck up a friendship in high school and formed Generationals in 2008. Though their retro vibe bears the influence of Phil Spector's mid-century pop, Generationals' sound is wide-ranging and diverse, incorporating elements of britpop, dance and electronic music. Above all, with each release the band continues zeroing in on their strong suit: superior pop songwriting. Generationals is the collaboration of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer (formerly of Eames Era). Oranges Band founder Daniel Black engineered and produced the record in the style of his heroes - George Martin, Phil Spector, Jeff Lynn, and Quincy Jones - with meticulous attention to detail and a willingness to make the recordings sound old. The result is one of those "first record" moments that blissfully wills its listeners into repeat listens.
