When The Eames Era disbanded in 2008, guitarists Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer decided to band together and form Generationals. The name derived from how every issue seemed to be a generational issue on CNN’s coverage of the 2008 presidential election. This is ironic since most of this New Orleans duo’s music is more feel-good and whimsical than heavy and political. Think Passion Pit meets Tame Impala, melding synth beats with psychedelic rock and harmonic distorted vocals. Their newest song “Turning the Screw” showcases what the duo does best, which is start the party (or keep it from dying down) with new wave beats and dreamy vocals. For fans of Tennis and STRFKR.
