Time Beach Universe

Grinnell-based lounge-rock ’n’ roll act Pink Neighbor (Katie In ’13, Erik Jarvis ’12, Carlos Ferguson ’92) released their debut album, Time Beach Universe, Sept. 13. Founding members In and Jarvis oversaw production of the album, which was recorded and mixed to tape in Rock Island, Illinois. The eight-song album offers an array of psychedelic-pop hooks and cinematic soundscapes, with songwriting that combines Brill Building sophistication with Woodstock eccentricity. Unexpected chord changes collide with radio-friendly refrains, all delivered with charming vocal harmonies. Indeed, these songs serve not only to demonstrate the group’s musicality, but also to invite you in.
