Space 三 Hymns 三 Spring Mix

This is a spring mix that’s pretty well suited for a blissful stretch of Highway 1 (hint hint, east/west coast people buy your tickets and make it out to the most beautiful drive/venue in the world for what looks to be a fairly epic line-up). I’ve been pretty set on these long, sprawling melodic tracks for the past few weeks and have finally whittled them down to a romantic thirteen. Born as an aside from the end of the left coast; it’s also just where the weather has been.

Full tracklist below, some selected tracks:

Kak – Lemonade Kid

I think Blind Melon owe a debt of gratitude to this rad sunwashed and stoned 60’s San Francisco band whose riff off this track sounds nearly indistinguishable from “No Rain’s.” I like where Kak take it. Something about this song makes so much sense again, it was one of my first discoveries when I first moved to San Francisco and captures that similar quixotic wave of optimism. They recorded one album in ’68 which was never promoted, played a few shows around San Francisco then called it quits.

Mark & Suzann Farmer – Dreams

The production on this song really makes it. This track has been on constant rotation since I first heard it a bit back. Better than the original.

Speculator – Cruiser

Can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic when the beat kicks into this track. Cruiser just conjures up some oddly formative days spent watching generic alt., house, hip hop and grunge music videos ad infinitum while your older sister tried on chokers and you increasingly felt slightly sick to your stomach staring at the Brass Plumbs poorly contrived sign. What? Only adding to the perfection of the track are the barely audible vocals carrying an early JAMCesque melody.

Peter Green – Little Dreamer

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I find it pretty difficult to really define Peter Greens musical output for Fleetwood Mac and his solo material in a single genre as his songwriting was so diverse in style and changed so quickly between song and album. As big of a travesty as it was that for much of the 70’s Green’s music was absent (bad acid trip sent him along a similar path as Barrett), there is still a few later gems from the rough (and I mean rough, some of his later material saw him recording his brothers disco songs). This track from 77 is one of those tracks that is subtle on first listen but by the end builds to something tiptoeing in on what made Albatross so incredible.
