Beachwood Sparks: Make the Cowboy Robots Cry

Beachwood Sparks: 15 Nov 2001: The Troubadour - Santa Monica

Beachwood Sparks: Once We Were Trees

Beachwood Sparks is a California band; it is the Byrds and the Beach Boys, Love and Buffalo Springfield, the Minutemen and Rank and File. Country-rock or alt-country might be the easiest tags to hang round the band's neck, but it doesn't follow the rules of that genre or any other, it offers more than any pigeonhole could hold.

They have created their own sound for today, and I am not surprised that they have surfaced on Sub Pop, a label that signs artists based on real songs and talent.
