Tancred "Nightstand (Polyvinyl)"
We sure loved the last album from Tancred Out Of The Garden, so we were over the moon when we got our grubby mitts (sorry, we were cleaning!) on Nightstand (Polyvinyl). Everything we loved about the last one, the candy coated melodies, the hooks, the emotional lyrics, are back, but better than ever. A beguiling mix of ‘80s power pop, ‘90s alt rock, ‘00s west coast rock, and ‘10s rock balladry has left the whole thing feeling timeless. It’s like Veruca Salt covering Hole covering Weezer. Does that make sense? You should decide for yourself and check out the jangly anthem rock of “Hot Star” or the infectious “Queen of New York.”
