The Black Tambourines
Not that long ago, is was pretty difficult to fake or even honestly approximate past eras of recording. There would always be something a bit off, there was always a “tell” that a song was new. That isn’t so much the case anymore and, personally, I don’t mind because I don’t need every new artist I hear to redefine or blaze a new genre. Sometimes it’s nice to hear catchy songs with a familiar aesthetic recreated with passion and energy. That’s what The Black Tambourines are doing and I’m digging it because it feels honest.
