Today in the WMSE Studios: Spectrals

Tonight, WMSE is pleased to help welcome Cults’ sunshine-y sounds to the Turner Hall Ballroom; the band’s catchy “Go Outside” ditty has been monopolizing our collective ear-space pretty much all week as a result. The music of Cults’ opener, Spectrals, is a close second in monopolization — Bad Penny, the Slumberland/Wichita Records release by Spectrals’ main man, Louis Jones, is steeped in all the best of 80’s and 90’s twee pop and today’s sweet and shimmering garage and chill pop. Loading plenty of England’s wistfulness (his home) into Bad Penny, Jones still manages to pop plenty of that indie jangle (and even country western) that American pop aficionados love and compose so saliently.

Tune into WMSE tonight at 6:30 p.m. CST to catch an in-studio interview with Spectrals’ Louis Jones on Rich Mars’ City Rock Showgram. Catch Spectrals at Turner Hall Ballroom tonight at 8 p.m. with Cults.
