USA, 2000, alt-country / indie pop
Beachwood Sparks – Beachwood Sparks: This isn’t some great work of art, in my opinion, but it is everything it means to be: a soothing blend of indie pop and alt-country. I loved this the first time I heard it years ago on a friend’s recommendation. This is a great singalong album, equally good in summer or winter, but for opposite reasons. “Old Sea Miner” is randomly an excellent song on this album.
