  • The Idyllists, “The Idyllists” (self-released) — What if Morrissey had moved to Malibu at a young age and become a Ritalin kid? He might have sounded like the Idyllists. The L.A. septet’s sophomore effort, brims with crisp, breezy Britpop that makes sonic brethren of several decades of U.K. guitarmen, from the Beatles to the Kooks. Other transplants have found more poetry in “Pacific Highway Blues,” or have brought more eloquence to the “Empire State,” but the Idyllists’ jaunty optimism makes them a pretty nice crew to spend 38 minutes with. And, possibly, a great candidate for resident band at Club NME, if there was such a thing.

about

This seven piece outfit sounds like they’re from 1960’s Britain; their percussion is loose and peppy, the guitars jangly and the lyrics uncomplicated. They are, however, actually from modern day LA – well, lead singer Ian Webber is a Brit but a US based one- and they’ve just released their second album The Idyllists. If you like a your music sun drenched and surfy with a hint of rockabilly then do yourself a favor and check these guys out. The go beyond your typical retro leaning group by including elements from an interesting cross section of musical history. You’ll hear some lone twangy guitar line reminiscent of early classic country, B3 organ solos straight outta dingy blues clubs and even some crisply plotted piano solos. Give the new album a spin to find out what other musical influences the Idyllists have repurposed to create their own sound.
