PINK FLOYD — JULIA DREAM / 1968

PINK FLOYD — JULIA DREAM mp3

Julia Dream is one of my favorite songs off their catalog. Although Syd had already (been) left (behind) it still manages to capture the oneiric lunacy of his lyrics, while the music forms a mellotron haze that floats above a a guitar and various ambient sounds.

MAYFIELD’S MULE – Double Dealing Woman – 1969

mayfields-mule-double dealing woman

The music is basically rock but with hints of prog, blues, rural and even a bit of soul thrown in.

KISS – Deuce (Alive) 1975

KISS 1975

“Deuce” still rocks harder than 99 percent of the rock I hear being made today and that’s because it’s borne out of equal parts desperation (about to get dropped from their record label) and frustration (from four guys from NYC willing to do anything to “make it”) and it appeals to the rebellious, angry, rock n’ roll spirit in every teenager.

Golden Bear – Ten Thousand Orchestras / 2006

golden bear ten thousand orchestras

This is a great album because it combines many aspects to create a very pleasant listening experience. The songs are diverse, well crafted, and wonderful to listen to no matter what mood one is in. Ten Thousand Orchestras is lush and Beatles/Kinks-esque.

ROBOTANISTS – Plans in Progress / 2011

Robotanists - Plans in Progress

Female-fronted indie at its finest, a soulful voice cast over booming guitar and the downright pretty production quality typical of the genre. The Robotanists are here to fill that void [of bands like Denali] in every respect, and “On/Off The Ledge” is as sincere as it is dancy, adjectives that normally take effort to pair together.

An acid jazz combo from the U.K. that also incorporates elements of traditional jazz, blues-rock, funk, and mod, Mother Earth made their first appearance on the Acid Jazz label in 1992 with Hope You’re Feeling Better. Since then, they’ve released a number of studio records, including 1995’s acclaimed The People Tree and 2001’s Time of the Future.
