Beach Boys harmonies stirred up with a little modern rock.

Imagine the aesthetic of the '60s and the Beach Boys 'harmonies stirred up with a little modern rock, and that is roughly what you get At Home with Cherry Twister. While heavily influenced by '60s pop bands, the album still sounds fresh and modern, not a rehash of old sounds; it's mostly upbeat, though there are a few slower songs are mixed in for variety and breadth. The harmonies and guitars are layered so impeccably that the album can be sonically peeled like an onion; there's always another vocal part or instrument to find below the melody.
