Only Son’s second record, Searchlight, is a smooth collection of sunny, atmospheric pop tunes written and performed by Jack Dishel, once the lead guitarist of The Moldy Peaches. I’m not going to go so far as to call it shoegaze, but you might. But I will go so far as to call it purty gud: Good lyrics, a steady and reliable pop beat, and terrific vocals.
Stream “Call Them Brothers”–a duet with Regina Spektor–below.
And then check out the pretty wild video for the single, “Magic.”
