Wool - If They Left Us Alone Now

We mentioned Wool last week, but in case you don't know them, you really should hear this, their signature song. Happy Holidays!

The Rattles and Wool

Never not surprised by the seemingly random connections made on Youtube. Like why would Wool, from Syracuse, and better known for soul influenced folk rock like "If They Left Us Alone Now" or "Love Love Love Love" cover Hamburg's The Rattles hit, "The Witch"? Aside from commercial reasons, we mean...

Frantic Elevators - Holding Back the Years

original version. Kinda miss the "I'll Keep Holding On" part, though.

Homestead & Wolfe - Beat Of The Drum

This peculiar offering comes to you from Cupertino, California, by way of LA's famed Gold Star studios and sounds like the Dedrick's tougher West Coast cousins. But stop reading and just listen.

Ottowan - Tes OK

The pieces keep falling into place.

Dexys - There There

In the olden days, people rebelled against fashion the same way they would rebel against the government. Seen and Heard.

Earth & Fire - Memories

Who is more beautiful than Jerney Kaagman in this brief and fleeting moment?

Michael Bundt - Neon

thanks to Phuong Dan for turning us onto this

Gary Scruggs - Gentle When You Say The Word

It only takes half a day of hanging out in Stockholm for someone to play us this incredible piece of psychedelia which name-checks the last two cities we've been in in the last week, just for good measure.

Marc Capanni - I Believe In Miracles

If we posted this before, surely it is time to post it once again. Happy summer, weirdos.

Four Flies on Grey Velvet

Our man Daniel Collás has written a new, Goblin-themed score for this neglected Dario Argento classic, and will perform it live with his new side project, Yello Magi.

Space Art - Welcome To Love

We're only a little disappointed by the new Daft Punk record.

The Right Track - Baby I Love You

It'll be summer soon. Time to start staying up much too late.

Saturday, May 4, 2013

The Turtles - Outside Chance

An early, unsuccessful attempt by the Turtles, featuring the sublime vocalizing of Kaylan & Volman.

Little Grants & Eddie - Rudy's Dead

This peculiar record got played a lot at rocksteady and soul dances back in the teenage years. Only just realized it was actually Eddy Grant. It's becoming easier to name records from back then that he wasn't involved with.

Joy - Two Different Things

It took forever to find this, and now that we're listening, maybe not as good as previously remembered. But definitely still worth a post, especially after all the effort that went into procuring it.

Feminine Complex - Hide And Seek

Our good friend Sarah turned us on to this a few years ago, and it just came up in conversation after finding the record in Tokyo, of all places.

The Masters Apprentices - It's Because I Love You

Yes, "Catty" has that break, and yes, they are kind of an Australian version of Budgie, but all of that aside, this song rules.

Ago - For You

Our recent trip to Japan reminded just how great this song really is.

Ruthann Friedman - Windy (original)

The demo that went on to become The Association's signature song.

The Lost Generation - Talking the Teenage Language

From the vocal group that featured Larry Brownlee (writer of "Michael the Lover") and Lowrell Simon (yes, that Lowrell), Young, Tough, And Terrible was the (apocryphal) follow up to The Lost Generation's hit LP The Sly, Slick, and the Wicked which included this slow burner, a top contender for #1 in the psychedelic soul canon.

Aphrodite's Child - Break

Cannot get enough of these Greek weirdos lately, especially this 666 album. If you have a spare one hour and eighteen minutes, you should listen to it, beginning to end. Lead vocals by their incredible drummer, Loukas Sideras (with the white cardigan and striped strides, no relation.)

Wally Badarou - Endless Race

thanks to our friend Finn for the heads up on this incredible piece of electro hi life.

Solange - Losing You

This has been rattling around in our heads since we first heard it late last year. Nice work, gang.

Dum Maro Dum
