AUTUMN LEAVES (Buy CDs by this artist)
Treats and Treasures (Grimsey) 1997
The Autumn Leaves was formed in Minneapolis in 1993 by David Beckey, who brought together '90s pure-pop aesthetics with a '60s approach to folk melodies and backup-singer choruses. Treats and Treasures shows an appreciation for jangle guitar ("You Didn't Say a Word"), Ride-like shoegazer swirls ("Everynight") and reverb-drenched balladry ("When I Close My Eyes").[Ben Goldberg]
