Interview: Generationals bring their unique brand of electro-pop to Phono del Sol

Summer's here, and that means Phono del Sol ain't too far off. It also means Generationals will be in town to play the festival. Those of you familiar with the music of the New Orleans-based two-piece are already excited, and for those of you who aren't, here's why you should be excited: the duo comprised of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer make some of the catchiest, synth-based electro-pop out there.

It's a twist that you wouldn't necessarily expect to come out of a city known as birthplace of jazz, but Generationals are adamant that Lucky Numbers is a New Orleans record through-and-through.
