- Fountayne Mountain by The See See
8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 May 2012
The See See are one of those psych-pop bands who are totally in thrall to bands of the '60s like The Kinks, The Pretty Things, The Who, 13th Floor Elevators, and just about anything from the Nuggets compilations. Having already established that this is something they're quite good at on their first album, they've used this second album to experiment with some new ideas.
Just kidding! This is the same summery '60s psych-pop they were making before, but different songs of it. You probably know by now if you're into their bright harmonies and retro Ace Tone organ sounds. If you're the kind of person who likes stuff on Fruits De Mer you may even have been waiting for this to come out for a while, since nobody copies the '60s better than these guys. I kind of have mixed feelings about these guys you know - on one hand, it's pure boldfaced '60s copyism; on the other they're fucking good at it and who doesn't operate within one genre or other at least sometimes?
Some of these songs, like 'Sunbleached' and 'Gold and Honey', you'll already have heard on 7”s but mostly this is all new jangly summer psychedelia. If you could hear a bowl cut, it would sound like this. And by that logic, if you have a bowl cut, this is clearly something you would like near your ears.
