Some albums were made to be played on a Saturday night. "The Tarnished Gold" was meant to be played on a Sunday afternoon. Listening to Beachwood Sparks' first album in 11 years is like being under cobalt blue skies and smelling the night-blooming jasmine on a perfect spring day in Los Angeles. "That's definitely the idea," founding member Brent Rademaker confirms.

"The Tarnished Gold," is the work of their classic lineup: singer/guitarist Chris Gunst, singer/bassist Brent Rademaker, singer/multi-instrumentalist Farmer Dave Scher, and drummer Aaron Sperske, with invaluable support from guitarist and longtime friend Ben Knight (The Tyde). For the sessions, the band expanded to seven pieces, with guitarists Knight and Neal Casal (solo artist and former member of Ryan Adams and the Cardinals), with Dan Horne on pedal steel in place of Scher, who opted to play organ, key, flying V guitar and electrified melodica. Also lending a hand were Gunst's wife Jen Cohen, Sparks' very first drummer Jimi Hey, Brent's brother Darren (leader of The Tyde) and L.A. indie-rock maestro Ariel Pink.
