The second album from GospelbeacH continues to deftly honor the grand tradition of West Coast rock and roll. This time around its more 70s FM rock than 60s AM gold, more cosmo than country with a theme of timeless love. Straightforward, inviting songwriting and singing by Brent Rademaker (a founding member of Beachwood Sparks). Warm classic production and tight harmonies once again by guitarist/vocalist Jason Soda. Recorded in Los Angeles at Palomino Sound, Jasons new 1970s vintage artisan recording studio. Third GospelbeacH core member Jonny Niemanns cascading piano, organ and mellotron ll out the albums rich sound. In the tradition of the Troubadour scene of the 1970s Another Summer of Love features some of the GospelbeacH friends and Los Angeles nest players and singers including, Pearl Charles, Miranda Lee Richards, members of Wilco, Mapache, Eels, and pickers from the Grand Ole Echo. The album artwork features re active photography by GospelbeacH guitarist/singer Neal Casal and Allah-Las drummer Matthew Coreia.
Soothing harmonies, ringing guitars, and lush synths are the inhabitants that swim in The Sea of Love, the sophomore effort by the Adventures. The shimmering, hummable pop the Adventures crafted on their first LP, Theodore and Friends, is furnished with a coat of studio polish as the band aims for an epic feel. In an attempt to beef up their sound, the group doesn't lose its grip on subtlety. The slicker production doesn't make their songs more appealing to commercial radio; it merely enhances their beauty.
