The Pomegranates’ latest record was released in April, so I’m a bit behind the ball on this one, but the first three tracks are worth a listen. They’re not really chaotic, but I wouldn’t call them smooth either. “Beachcomber” has polished edges.
It reminds me a lot of the movie Adventureland. The high-hat, toms, and repeating riff at the beginning sound like an overexposed cellphone video of your adorable hipster ex-girlfriend smiling her way down Venice Beach on a clear night. Then you get a piano break and a funky resolution.
It’s three songs in one. Enjoy!
