Daily Listen: Generationals - "Ten-Twenty-Ten"

Sometimes the opening band is just that. It's there to warm up the crowd but it's nothing to really pay attention to or remember. But sometimes the opening band ends up being what you came for, and last night Generationals were that band.

Mixing a bit of new wave (The Cars, Big Country) with some new modern day angst (Band of Horses), Generationals plays a type of synth pop that leans firmly on the late 80's but still manages to sound completely new.

Check out this opening track from their new album Actor Caster, and if they are playing in your town make it a point to check them out. Just get there early.
