Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

New Orleans-based indie pop outfit Generationals craft hook-filled tunes that draw liberally from rock and pop's '50s, '60s, and '70s heyday, while maintaining a modern sensibility. Emerging in the late 2000s, the band built upon their earlier notoriety as members of the Eames Era, issuing albums like 2011's Actor-Caster, and 2014's Alix.

Formed in 2007 by guitarists/songwriters Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, Generationals initially came together after the break-up of the duo's previous band, Eames Era. Like their early labelmates Dr. Dog, Spinto Band, and Capitol Years, Generationals embraced a lo-fi recording aesthetic, buffered by their advanced musical chops, resulting in a clever new take on sugar pop psychedelia.

The band's Park the Van debut, Con Law, arrived on July 21, 2009. They returned in 2011 with the equally sugary-sweet sophomore effort Actor-Caster.

Two years later, the group moved to Polyvinyl, which delivered their third studio LP, Heza, followed in 2014 by the '80s synth-pop-influenced Alix. Both of those albums hit the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. Generationals celebrated their new label's 20th anniversary in 2016 by covering "In Green" by Volcano, I'm Still Excited!! for the Polyvinyl Plays Polyvinyl collection. In 2018, they issued the compilation set State Dogs: Singles 2017-2018. ~ James Christopher Monger~ Rovi
