      EVENT DETAILS
      Generationals

      with Pure Bathing Culture
      From their inception Generationals have existed at the convergence of classic style andcontemporary technique. Students of an analog school actualized in a digital medium, GrantWidmer and Ted Joyner have always felt most comfortable reveling in this juxtaposition.Grounded in a catalog of infectious pop hooks that feel both familiar and radically new all atonce, Generationals mastered their distinct voice as a means to widen the path before them.Reader As Detective, their new full-length album, weds vintage pop canon and modern popproduction in a way this duo has proven incomparably adept. From the cornerstone sample of ITurned My Back on the Written Word, (a recontextualization of an unreleased b-side) to theplayful synths & stuttered drums of Dream Box, and jogging rhythms of "Breaking YourSilence," Generationals continue to push the envelope by playing by their own rules.In the years following their last album, Alix, the band experimented by releasing one-off singlesand videos immediately upon their completion, which eventually formed 2018s State Dogscollection. This method an exploratory dive in shirking the nature of traditional album rollouts refined how they approached writing. Freed from the album-cycle mentality, the pair was able tofocus on each track autonomously, rather than as a fragment of a larger batch of songs.Reader As Detective is the result of purposeful time spent honing Generationals craft asprogressive songwriters. With the help of producer and longtime collaborator Dan Black, theydug into new methods of creation with a fearlessness for experimentation that is equally vital tothe experience of both artist and listener. With Reader As Detective, Generationals havereached a high-water mark in an already noteworthy career isolation and celebration set to amajor key.
