I can’t help but feel that this is set in the 80s.

the generationals video mixtape

Actor-Caster, the 2011 LP from New Orleans duo Generationals, was probably my most listened-to album of last year. Catchy and upbeat, it still sounds fresh despite repeated listens. The band is stopping back through Madison on October 10th at the High Noon Saloon so we asked them to make us a mixtape. Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner decided to step out of the box and make us a video mixtape. Check it out below and catch them on tour through November!
