Slowing down for a moment here from the constant parsing of new tunes to write up on Naturalismo. Here’s some songs that I have found myself going back and repeatedly listening to lately. I think dear readers will dig ’em.
First up is one of the most sonically beautiful songs I think ever laid to tape. White Magic’s swirling vocals on ‘”Day’“abound, surround and suddenly you find yourself so overwhelmingly immersed in their atmosphere that nothing else really seems to matter. The entire city just drains through your feet, this song is therapy.
Next up is a song from Karen Beth’s 1969 album “The Joys of Life,” her vocals are reminiscent of Karen Dalton, but a bit softer around the edges. It’s a beautiful slice of late 60’s folk.
Last one, WAKE UP, a slice of rare (and loud) electric blues from Reverend A Johnson from the late 50’s, it rocks just as hard as anything tapped into in the 60’s. If you dig Entrance’s increasing electric set this is one for you to hear.
