There is one song from the album that is destined for heavy rotation: the loner upbeat track of the bunch, and heavy on the Strokes-vibes pop song “Into The Sky”.
Color In The Gray Machine is Spencer’s first full-length album as Mind The Journey, and it is a truly enjoyable experience. “Rose Colored Glasses” is how I imagine it must feel like to make it out of a bad acid trip in one piece – starting out quite loud and chaotic, and then coming to a crashing halt with an abrupt change in tempo, tone, and overall mood early on in the song, causing you to almost forget the chaos that invaded your ears just minutes earlier.
Check out the album in its entirety on Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube.
Unearth that dusty lava lamp from the basement, switch on some black lights, and pull up a beanbag for this one. Psychedelic rock trio Plum gives us a little taste of their upcoming LP Light Years, Dark Years, with a title track that is just begging to be heard on vinyl. These guys hail from Denver, Colorado, and seemed to have just burst onto the scene out of nowhere, plucked from obscurity by Holy Underground earlier this year. Despite having only been around since late 2014, Plum has already proven themselves champions of the undying breed that is psychedelia. In the same vein as Temples and Tame Impala, Plum’s debut EP is a love letter to the Woodstock’d counterculture of the late 1960s and early 70s – a trippy, kaleidoscopic voyage, dripping with fuzzy tones and hazy drum beats. Keep an ear out for Light Years, Dark Years, due out on December 7th.
I’ve posted about Secret Circuit, aka LA’s Eddie Ruscha Jr, here before. Eddie Ruscha Jr. is in fact the is the son of famous pop artist Edward Ruscha and has been producing music since the early 90s. He’s produced under a bunch of different names and in a handful of genres over the years. As Secret Circuit, he’s recently created his own brand of swaying and warm electronic music. Take a listen as he, in his own words, “holds a séance to summon the spirit of the dance floor…” Enjoy. Words by Peter Fusco
Check Outfit, out today with their debut full length LP, Performance. The band exists somewhere between the electronic cadences of Cut Copy and the droning samples of The Beta Band. Listen up below, grab the record HERE and enjoy…
