About You – The Pastels: Gorgeous twinklingly warm and fuzzy version of the Reid brothers’ already v. swoonsome track. The line ‘People die in their living rooms / but they do not need this God Almighty gloom’ has been making me laugh for the last twenty years.
Bats Over Barstow – Pete Greenwood. Fear and Loathing folky darkness.
Swami – William Penn V: From The Essential Pebbles Vol. 1: The Very Best of American Garage
Up The Hill - The See See: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young meet The Essex Green. Hoo yeah!
Let’s Live For Today – Living Daylights: From Rubble Vol 1: The Psychedelic Snarl. God Bless Bam Caruso.
That Girl Suicide – The Brian Jonestown Massacre: After their mighty performance of this at Islington Academy, it’s become this month’s BJM obsesso-tune.
The sound of Crumhorns: not fussy what the song is really, get hip to the Crummy sound, it’s what all the cool Medieval kidz are digging.
And I Was Blue – Sunforest: Medieval psych-folk from 1969 – how can you go wrong?
Navigator - The Lovetones: The Lovetones have gone a bit grown up on their new album, but the kind of grown-up that involves delivering daze-dreams epics, so that’s alright then.
