I've never been one for sunglasses. I have a photo of my grandma and her siblings taken sometime in the late 70's all four wearing shades. Strangely they look EXACTLY like the Velvet Underground. There are at least two pairs of sunglasses on show in Sun Ray and I hear that they are mates with pro sunglasses wearer Pete Kember (Spacemen 3 etc). The lead track is a buzzy psyched out version of The Pastels 'Baby Honey' which recalls Spiritualized, Spacemen 3 and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. 'Super Casino' is pure Velvet Underground in wig out mode whilst on the flip, 'Leaves that Were Green' is a lovely late 60's style lament made with original 60's dust, almost a bit Leonard Cohen ish. Finally we get a mantra-ish droney piece of psychedelia called 'Tears at Sunrise' which recalls the Byrds at their most spaced out. Roger McGuinn - now theres a man with interesting eye wear. Overall they wear their influences proudly on their sleeve (or eyes) but this is quietly impressive and will appeal to fans of blissed out 60's psychedelia and its 80's revivalist equivalent.
