Psych revivalists Fruits De Mer have a couple more of their trademark covers comps out, including this one in which a succession of bands who wouldn't sound out of place on the Old Grey Whistle Test cover The Pretty Things' psychedelic landmark opus SF Sorrow. We've got the likes of The Luck of Eden Hall, Earthling Society, The Loons, Hi-Fiction Science and Senrab Mendips all offering up their painstakingly authentic-sounding takes on the source material. They've already got a bit of a headstart here since the source material is pretty uniformly wonderful but I'm happy to report that none of the bands embarrass themselves and the overall effect is thoroughly charming. Particularly enjoying Sidewalk Society's warm, bouncy take on She Says Good Morning with its scything trebly lead guitar parts, and Senrab Mendips turns 'Baron Saturday' into some kind of weird trippy baggy excursion for some mid-LP light relief, and The Loons put in a rousingly dense take on closer 'Loneliest Person'. As a special bonus, there's a stripped back live version of that same song by the 'Things themselves at the end. Can't say fairer than that, can you?
