Pomegranates - "50's" by Pomegranates
From their bio:
Pomegranates are a band from Cincinnati that began as a fun project between two friends, Jacob Merritt and Isaac Karns, eventually growing into a four-piece with Joey Cook and, most recently, Dan Lyon. Over a span of two years, the band released two albums, 2008’s Everything Is Alive and 2009’s TJ Lipple-produced Everybody, Come Outside!, both of which drew the immediate attention of independent radio stations like KEXP, WOXY, and KCRW, and critical praise from the likes of Spin magazine for the band’s very sudden and prodigious growth in sound.
Having notched off those tours, as well as further dates with Islands and Blitzen Trapper, the band recorded their third LP, One of Us, with TJ Lipple at The Monastery in Cincinnati. Having cited inspirations like Spiritualized and Talking Heads for their work so far, the band’s new “psychedelic dream rock” album looks to push further down experimental roads, with descriptors like “textured,” “unusual,” and “challenging” entering the conversation.
