The UK psychedelic scene is alive and well you'll be pleased to know. Those sleepless nights can end with that in mind. Here's the debut (I think) 7" from The Beaulieu Porch released on The Peppermint Hill which is a label ran by a chap from Smiles & Frowns if memory serves me. The Colour 55 is a hugely epic and possibly pompous (but not in an unpleasant way) psych pop tune with all the bells and whistles you'd expect. Echoey vocals, brass section, acoustic guitar, backwards recordings etc. It's very British sounding and if you're fan of oldee 60's style psyche pop then this is a really well observed and crafted take on that whole style. It reminds me a wee bit of the Dispsomaniacs at moments though I'm reasonably sure hardly anyone reading out there is gonna remember that name but they did sound a bit like this at times. Decent pop tune and on purple vinyl!

The Colour 55Beaulieu PorchReleased on February 14, 2011 on The Peppermint HillThe Colour 55 7” is the first single release oeringfrom the fabulous Beaulieu Porch (Bew-Lee Porch),aka Simon Berry and friends (which include HannahBerry, Neil Buckley, & Pete Aves). This symphonic,synth, psych-pop, home grown, magic carpet ride toouter space is your chance to escape into the depthsof Berry’s personal psychedelic fantasies. Hiddenaway somewhere in Salisbury (UK), Berry cooks up hisintimate bedroom psych-pop aural entrées for amodern world that cries for a breath of fresh nostalgia,peppered with sci- sounds of the future.“The Colour 55” sits somewhere outside of the present, one foot in the jangling tambourinesof a distant yesteryear, and the other in the synthetic strings and ghostly space-age backingvocals of a futuristic other world. Sitting on the bones of this classically written song, is thebody of a brilliantly constructed time machine of sound.On the ip-side of this 7” lives the dreamy loner space folk anthem, “Navy Blue”. It is quite a bitmore vulnerable than its brother from the other side. Beginning with a striped down acousticguitar, that eventually leads the listener into uncharted territory, a bit like a friendly piedpiper, leading us inward into the depths of our imagination.Tucked away inside the sleeve of this 7” is a card that will direct you to download three additional“Phantom Tracks”.The Peppermint Hill is a record label that was created by “The Smiles and Frowns” for thepurpose of releasing their own material. This is the rst release from The Peppermint Hill thatis a non-smiles related recording. This release is only the result of a desire to contribute goodmusic and art , to the ears and eyes of those who consume it.
