Night Beats – Who Sold My Generation
Night Beats release their new album ‘Who Sold My Generation’ on Heavenly Recordings. Their third album and first for Heavenly, it follows the release of their self-titled debut in 2011 and ‘Sonic Bloom’ in 2013.
Recorded on old two-inch tape in Echo Park, Los Angeles at the home of producer Nic Jodoin and featuring co-production and guest bass playing from Robert Levon Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, new album ‘Who Sold My Generation’ goes beyond merely being a retreading of well-worn garage / R&B path. Instead it offers a contemporary take on the psychedelic experience, a heady set of hoodoo voodoo songs.
Very much a record in the great Texan musical tradition of acid-drenched outlaw music, ‘Who Sold My Generation’ picks up where the likes of The Elevators or The Red Krayola left off.
