Trevor Beld Jimenez, frontman for the LA group Tall Tales and the Silver Lining, writes big, bright guitar-pop songs that play like a hybrid of ’70s Americana and mid ’80s jangle-pop, bright constellations of guitar surrounding Jimenez’s wry, Tom Petty-esque delivery. All of those traits are on full display on the radiant “This Time Around,” from the forthcoming Tightropes. “Let it go, let it go, let it go,” Jimenez repeats sweetly in the run-up to the song’s dazzling chorus, and the entirety of “This Time Around” is shot through with that same sense of joy and abandon. It’s a gorgeous, honey-dipped song as sweet as a sonnet and as bright as the midday sun.
Tightropes will be released on February 24 on Other Music Recording Co.
