After more than a decade, Beachwood Sparks returns with a new album. The band has played a few shows during that time off from recording albums together, but The Tarnished Gold is their return to the studio. The band, which has always sounded like a continuation of The Flying Burrito Brothers, still plays the same style of ubercatchy psychedelic country rock sound that made them popular at the turn of the century. The core of Beachwood Sparks returns with Chris Gunst, Brent Rademaker, and Farmer Dave Scher, but they studio band was expanded to seven musicians and a few other guests. The result is a countrified album layered in a wash of vocals, guitars, pedal steel, keyboards, and an assortment of other jangly and whirling sounds.
