Upon first listen, the Sparklers have a really familiar sound. It’s a mix of Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs’ gravely voice with REM’s pop sensibility.
Their latest album “Crying at the Low Bar“ is almost a year old but only recently came to my attention. When I learned it was recorded in South Philly, I had to give it a listen. You can hear the whole thing track by track here. “Gingham” is my favorite.
The record has gotten some nice accolades from media outlets like Philadelphia Weekly. Plus, at least three websites have named the album among their best list for 2012. All Access has an interview with the band here.
