Through the 90’s, at least, the appearance of the retro in the pop music of the day tended to manifest as a big flashing arrow pointing to a reference. Not a lot of substance required. Lennon glasses topping off some new stuff from the mall. Instantiating the retro in a careful, caring way is a different matter. Instantiating (rather than borrowing costumery) requires a great deal more personal commitment and closer attention to aesthetic fine points. Archival but not chilly. Not a tribute and not a pastiche. And so, quite like, say, Michael Bublé to the pop hits of a certain era, so http://silenceyourself.savagesband.com/ to some others.
