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)
