The New Orleans trio Generationals – songwriters Ted Joyner and Grant Widner plus drummer Tess Brunet – released their first LP, Con Law, in the summer of 2009. That album’s standout track, “When They Fight, They Fight,” was a deliciously saccharine Motown-tinged throwback, backed by swooping horns and girl-group harmonies, sounding like something Phil Spector or Quincy Jones would have created fifty years ago. Live, the band seeks to replicate that buzzing Wall of Sound with extra brass players and backup singers. Generationals’ upcoming second album, Actor-Caster, was recorded this summer and is said to be a bit more abstract, but we’re hoping the sunshine stays. With Two Door Cinema Club, Funeral Party.
