The Beets – Time Brought Age 7″

By now I feel like most of you are familiar with The Beets. They just released their sophomore album “Stay Home”, and now they’re back again with a 7″ featuring two new and original songs, courtesy of Captured Tracks.

This is already their second release of 2011, which gives them ample time to cook up something new if necessary. At this pace it only seems like they’ll have more up their sleeve, because otherwise they’d be wasting the better half of a new year. “Time Brought Age” is the first Beets song featuring the use of a recorder, which only complements the cool and breezy spring time vibes within. The rich and twangy 12-string guitar sounds broad and bold, following along note by note with lead singer Juan Wauters as he sings. On the B-side is “Pick Another Corner”, which quickly gains some momentum. This is the sort of Beets track that you’re used to, with poppy hooks and blissful vocal harmonies hanging above your head. The final twenty seconds employs a quick and broken up guitar solo, which marks the end of a delightful 7″ that came out just in time for spring. Hear both sides right below.

One thought on “The Beets – Time Brought Age 7″

  1. dislike when bands opt for the quantity over quality approach to record releasing. although I haven’t spent a ton of time with it, Stay Home only seems partially good to me, as opposed to the full-through awesomeness of the debut. Locomotion, from the God single, is really good, though, and I suggest that to anyone who cares.
