Brooklyn duo Cliffie Swan's Memories Come True finds a startling, gorgeous middle ground between the mid-Seventies smooth pop of Fleetwood Mac and Carly Simon and the dynamic, crunchy alt-rock of the Nineties. The band, who were known as Lights until last year, expertly balance sunny harmonies and stoned riffs throughout the set. On the lovely opener "Dream Chain," they alternate between easy-going rec room balladry and fuzzed-out chords, but in other tunes, like the groovy "Soft and Mean" and the grungey "California Baby," the extremes of their style mingle seamlessly. Memories Come True will hit stores on June 21st, but you can stream "Yes I Love You" today.
