[AFTER THE GOLD RUSH] Getting the band back together as part of the celebrations honoring Sub Pop's 20th anniversary proved to be just the start of Beachwood Sparks' comeback trail. The Los Angelenos won turn-of-the-millennium tastemaker hearts through a decidedly backwards-leaning, psychedelia-spattered country rock that was somewhat less than fashionable amid the reign of slim-trousered bounders. Even if the Sparks' muse remains firmly focused upon the pipe dreams of the ’70s, a slowed-down modernity has finally caught up with their time-swept jangly strummings. Last year's The Tarnished Gold, the band's third full-length, arrived laden with blissful harmonies, shimmering percussion and dopily sincere lyrics as if the past decade (or four) never happened.
