A timeless rock & roll band for the modern world, The Prescriptions sharpen their sound with Time Apart. Produced by Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) and Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs), the album funnels a half-century of American and British sounds — including taut power-pop, explorative indie rock, jangling heartland hooks, and New Wave nuances — into something sharp and singular. The result is a warm, widescreen follow-up to The Prescriptions’ 2019 debut, Hollywood Gold, its songs balanced halfway between classic craftsmanship and progressive exploration.
“You can listen to our first record and hear our different influences,” says drummer John Wood. “We’ve always had wide interests, but Time Apart allowed us to become more specific.”
Fiery and forward-looking, Time Apart explores both sides of the pop/rock divide. It’s a 21st century album rooted in everything that made the classic stuff so compelling — sharp songwriting, ringing refrains, percussive stomp, and guitars that chime one minute and churn the next.
“If you’ve ever daydreamed about hearing “Being There”- era Wilco jam with “Bends”-era Radiohead, your wish is granted. ” — AL.COM
