Generationals - ‘Spinoza’
Following on from their synthy new wave record, the Lucky Numbers EP, Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer return with a new single that retains their omnipresent bouyancy but the main nerve of ‘Spinoza’ is Smiths-indebted guitar jangles. That and bouncing obtuse lyrics off each other. The song title might reference a Jewish-Dutch philosopher concerned with Theologico-Political Treatise, but it sounds an awful lot like lustful, beach pop.
'Spinoza' is lifted from Generationals' third album, it's called Heza and it’s out in April via Polyvinyl Records.
