Brack Cantrell – Glancing Blow & GospelbeacH – Pacific Surf Line
August 5, 2015 § Leave a comment
I’ve been enjoying this album by Brack Cantrell during the last couple of days. He is from Denton, Texas and that’s pretty much everything I know about him. Ok, I’ve done some research and found some stuff under the name Glass Caverns that also sounds mighty good. Anyway, this new solo album is called Glancing Blow and it’s available on his Bandcamp. Indie rock meets psych pop and a bit of ambient soundscapes as well. This is the excellent first single Corpus Christi.
The whole west coast Beachwood Sparks, The Tyde etc thingy is very dear to me. I’ve listened to all those bands a lot. The self-titled Beachwood Sparks album is one of my all time favourites and songs like The Reminder and Canyon Ride will always be a part of who I am. Therefore I’m really interested about Brent Rademaker’s new group GospelbeacH. It’s pretty much an all-(should-be)star cast otherwise as well. Neal Casal, Kip Boardman, Jason Soda, Tom Sanford and apparently also power pop guru Nelson Bragg making guest appearances. The album Pacific Surf Line is out later in the fall on Alive Records, but here’s the first outtake Sunshine Skyway.
