New album: Rainsticks || Here Come The Warm Jets

I missed the first three albums by Rainsticks (Nashville), but album #4 Here Come The Warm Jets definitely grabbed my attention. The band, who on the new record are comprised of Asher Horton (Guitars, Keys, Vocals), Ben Parks (Drums, Bass, Percussion, Vocals), and Emily Hall (Vocals), play jangly guitar pop. There are hints of classic power pop bands like Big Star and The Stems, but of contemporary power pop revivalists like 2nd Grade as well. Meanwhile, standout songs like Go In Blind and It’s Five O’Clock Nowhere sound like they come straight from the reputable Bay Area jangle pop scene. Expect strummy, jangly and chiming guitars and melodies that fit the description sweet and timeless to a T.

As a token of gratitude, Rainsticks finish Here Come The Warm Jets by covering a song written by one of the members’ dad, Frosty Horton. Nice kids, eh?
