Order Reader As Detective from Polyvinyl

“…the duo of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer craft meticulous pop arrangements bridging the gap between Oracular Spectacular electronic psych and the corresponding guitar pop of that album’s period. With a less than subtle nod to the conversational synths of Talking Heads, “Gatekeeper” is no different.”
– Flood
“”Gatekeeper” is a shimmering display of indie-pop sound that warms the soul…
…prime to being this summer’s true indie-pop gem.”
– Earmilk“Their latest single ‘Breaking Your Silence’ is a slice of summertime sweetness, offering airy instrumentation and sensational melodies in abundance.”
– The 405

“…warped and woozy modulated vocals that blend smoothly with some tropical rhythms.”
– Under The Radar 

the band stews up a simmering blend of groovy bass, slightly fuzzy percussion and barely there synths. Lingering there for the first minute or so, we calmly groove with the band before the loud synth hook and vocals peak for the catchy chorus.
– Austin Town Hall

Friday marked the release of Generationals’ new album Reader As Detective. The album was featured on both NPR’s “New Music Friday” and Paste’s “Albums of the Week”.  The band recently announced that their upcoming US tour dates will be supported by Pure Bathing CultureGemma and Neighbor Lady.  Full list of dates below.

Over the past couple of months, the band debuted the tracks “Gatekeeper”, “Breaking Your Silence”, “I Turned My Back On The Written Word,” and made multiple trips to perform on renowned Late Night mainstay Fresh Fridays.

Reader as Detective is out now on Polyvinyl.
