The Best Albums Of The Decade: #21 - Once We Were Trees
MP3: Beachwood Sparks - Yer Selfish Ways (Matt's pick)
MP3: Beachwood Sparks - The Hustler (Joey's pick)
#21 - Beachwood Sparks - Once We Were Trees
Sub Pop Records 2001
Oh shit we both like this record and put it at the same spot. You get a double dose in one post.
Matt On Once We Were Trees:
It was tough decision as to which Beachwood Sparks album to include, but ultimately, it's their last full-length that perfectly summates the band as the last purveyors of Gram Parsons' "Cosmic American Music".
Joey On Once We Were Trees:
We used to be bummed there was going to be no more Byrds or Gram Parsons music. Now we're bummed that their is no Beachwood Sparks music. Well, they are "back together" so we'll see... could be what the new decade needs. But this decade did just find with the Sparks and all related projects. Pitch perfect shit right here.
