Back in 2001, The Psychedelic Swamp seemed an appropriate name for the debut cassette from psychedelic pranksters Dr. Dog, but some 15 years later the title seems even more fitting given that the band decided to revisit, rework, and re-jigger the entirety of the album to create a brand-new album for 2016. It's not quite right to say Dr. Dog cover themselves here. Rather, they reconnect with the ideas originally essayed in 2001 and approach those ideas with the skill and panache they've developed in the ensuing 15 years.
Saintseneca, a young band from Columbus, Ohio led by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zac Little, release their ANTI- debut Dark Arc. While the group formed in Columbus, a majority of Saintseneca's members, including songwriter Little, hail from the rural hills of Appalachia, a landscape that has infused the group's evocative music with a deep sense of introspection. Following in the footsteps of heartland bands who have sought to twist the music of the old weird America into new shapes from the Violent Femmes to Neutral Milk Hotel.
Along time ago, I bought this LP from “The Moody Blues”, because it appears the original single “Nights In White Satin”.
