Formed in 2008 by ex-Eames Era guitarists/songwriters Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, New Orleans-based indie pop outfit Generationals craft hook-filled indie pop that draws liberally from rock and pop’s ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s heydays, while maintaining enough modern sensibilities to remain relevant in the MP3 age. Like their Park the Van contemporaries Dr. Dog, Spinto Band, and Capitol Years, Generationals’ lo-fi recording techniques are buffered by their advanced musical chops, resulting in a clever new take on sugar pop psychedelia. The band’s Park the Van debut, Con Law, arrived on July 21, 2009. The band returned in 2011 with the equally sugary-sweet sophomore effort Actor-Caster.

Generationals recently released the song “Put A Light On” from their forthcoming album, Heza, and now you can watch the accompanying video over at Paste. The Vice Cooler directed (Feist, La Sera, STRFKR) video was shot in the band’s hometown of New Orleans.
