Under the Sun – Diiv
Ecstatic summer dreampop from the talented Zachary Cole Smith. Totally uplifting and inspiring, this is the best single of the summer. Guitar heaven. A hit in my world – I love it!
All Things Must Pass – George Harrison
This song, alongside Isn’t It a Pity and Beware of Darkness, was just about all I could listen to while convalescing with my broken back this summer. True spiritual music from a deep soul – thank you George.
In Japan the Sky is Always Close to You – Carolyn Peyton
An early 1970’s post-hippy commune, drug-damaged, fucked up folk-jazz mix of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro. Intense and beautiful.
Find Me – Cate Le Bon
Victorian music box, toys-come-alive-in-the-attic-of-your-mind neo-psych from the beautifully strangely strange voiced Cate Le Bon. Time slips away angularly.
Divine – Golden Teacher
Twelve inches of paranoid neo-rave and hypnotic trance-out. Heavy Sensoria-eraCabaret Voltaire vibe.
