Tangerine trees and marmalade skies…
Neils Children: Dimly Lit
Seems like every three months or so, some new psych-rock album sneaks its way into my “now playing” playlist and sets up shop there for a while… at least til the next one arrives. Right now, that slot is being held down admirably by this fantastic album. Hailing from the UK (of course), these guys have apparently been around a while, but they’re new to me… and maybe you, too. Groovy mellotron meets reverb’d guitars and vocals to give every song a darker, other-time/other-place feel. Lava lamp optional.
New Electric Ride: New Electric Ride
Of course, you should listen to this five-song EP in its entirety posthaste, but I’ll wait while you just go ahead and listen to the opening track Mr Bumblebee right now. Pretty good, right? An even four minutes of lollipop swirl perfection, a first cousin to the Grateful Dead’s Alligator. The remaining four tracks are nearly as good, a heady mix of blues- rock and Grateful Beatles psychedelica with the band name and the British zip code to match.
