Me And My Kites - "Nat O Dag" amazing Swedish Canterbury-type Progressive / Psych - buy it here on vinyl!

ME AND MY KITES - "NATT O DAG" (SOUND EFFECTS SER045, Greece import LP), a wonderful slice of Swedish made Canterbury-type Progressive Music! With English female vocals, this is a lovely album of slightly jazzy British-influenced Progressive Psych. Beautifully produced, written and performed makes this is one of the finest albums in this much-loved genre - kicked off in the late 60 by such luminaries as SOFT MACHINE or CARAVAN. As part of Sweden's blossoming Psychedelic scene - full of excellent musicians and producer as well as a mass of great studios - ME AND MY KITES take the lead by creating a clever, sensitive album that transcends all eras and stands strong in the roaring '20s as one of the premier records we have had the pleasure of offering. With shades of whimsy of PINK FLOYD's debut album from 1967 plus tougher selections too this record never falls into the trap of being derivative as these players are too good and too original. Limited on vinyl, with printed inner sleeve - grab a copy today.

VELVET CRUSH - "FREE EXPRESSION" buy it here on vinyl!

VELVET CRUSH - "FREE EXPRESSION" (YOU ARE THE COSMOS, SPAIN import LP), back in stock a few copies of this amazing MATTHEW SWEET produced 1999 album, reissued a few years ago by our friend in Spain. Among power-pop’s truest believers, Ric Menck is a visionary and a scholar, a brilliant pilgrim on a lifetime quest to understand and master that inscrutable fusion of allure, insight and energy that yields the most sublime melodic devotionals to the grand wizards of the two-minute single: Brian Wilson, Alex Chilton, Roger McGuinn, Ray Davies, Pete Townshend, Phil Spector, etc. That he has sought to do so from behind a small drum kit rather than with a guitar or piano only heightens the intensity of the Illinois native’s efforts, sharpens the clarity of his perspective. Where other auteurs have found easy creative satisfaction in the imitation of some obvious aspect of their icons’ formulae, Menck — who can both sing and play guitar but rarely does either in public — demonstrates a keener, deeper obsession with the zen of pop. Great album. (Note slight differences in prices for two regions, feel free to add other Lps to the cart)

THE PARSON RED HEADS - "LIFETIME OF COMEDY" new album - buy the vinyl here

THE PARSON RED HEADS - "LIFETIME OF COMEDY" (YOU ARE THE COSOS, SPAIN import LP), an eagerly awaited return of the finest exponents of West Coast Pedal Steel and Harmony -lades Rock. Finely crafted and with beautiful melodies this album will appeal to fans of Alt. Country as well as older heads into Poco, Burrito Brothers and early Eagles. 

For its fifth album, Portland’s The Parson Red Heads dealt with a slight lineup change, as founding guitarist Sam Fowles left after the band’s last album, 2017’s Blurred Harmony. However, stepping right into Fowles’ shoes was touring guitarist Jake Smith, and the results are a glimmering, revelatory record that not only capitalizes on the band’s strengths but also moves it forward. 

Lifetime of Comedy is an album filled with sublime, Americana-tinged songs that rely on strong melodies, the obsession-worthy vocals of frontman Evan Way, and an introspective lyrical self-examination that lends the songs a poignant heft. Guitars harmonize, pedal steels sing, vocal melodies soar, and Way exposes his soul throughout. Fowles even returns to sing harmony on a few tracks. Lifetime of Comedy is an album that embeds itself. It sticks with you. Thankfully, The Parson Red Heads have managed to carry on. Ltd. vinyl with bonus CD and large POSTER. On DARK GREEN VINYL. Please note slight price difference between UK and outside Uk delivery below. (No extra to pay the price you see is the total and you can add others to your cart)

HIBISCUS BISCUIT "REFLECTIONS OF MINE" Prog Monster on vinyl. Buy it here.

HIBISCUS BISCUIT - "REFLECTIONS OF MINE" (SOUND EFFECTS SER090, Greece Import LP), from our friends in Greece, the label who also brought us the incredible MAGICK BROTHER, MYSTIC SISTER album last year. This incredible modern day Prog / Psych album is a stunner. Incredible guitar work,shifting rhythms and melodies this Australian cover all bases and invoke more than a passing memory of KING CRIMSON, WISHBONE ASH or CARAVAN but with a modern twist and real attitude too.

"Just when I'd pretty much given up on the Space/Psychedelic sub-genre something like this appears. And I love the singer's versatility and the way he tears it up on his lead guitar at the end of every song. Big props to the solid bass, drums, and keys, as well. B+/4.5 stars; a near-masterpiece of refreshing psychedelia. Keep your eyes and ears open for this young mega- talented singer-guitarist, Ricardo Moreira." 

I agree with every word of this short review, this is a really great album that grows with repeated listening and envelops you like a cozy jacket after a few spins. See below for a youtube preview. In lovely gatefold sleeve, we only have a handful of copies of this!
