Triptides – Predictions (2013) review

Triptides “Predictions” (Stroll On Records, 2013)
               
              Listening
to the 13 tracks on this pleasurable album is like taking a visit through three
separate yet connected eras of pop/rock music. In Triptides’ sound I hear very
early Love and The Leaves from the 60s, 80s Paisley Underground bands such as
The Rain Parade and Plasticland, and current acts along the lines of both Tame
Impala and The Allah-Las.  There’s jangle
in what they do, there’s both soft pop and garage, there’s echo-laden psychedelia.
And, even though the band’s from Bloomington, Indiana, the whole thing feels
like a blissfully hazy day spent around the Pacific Ocean.  If you made a sandwich that was equal parts
The Leaves’ “Dr. Stone,” The Rain Parade’s “This Can’t Be Today,” and The
Allah-Las “Catamaran,” when you bit into that thing the taste you’d get is
something like this album’s feel.  I
can’t credit the band with originality, because I don’t hear anything in their
stuff that they can claim as their own. But if you don’t mind a record that is
a sum of its makers’ influences and if you like any or all of the bands
mentioned above, you probably want to give this one a spin.
