Ah, this tape is making me mega nostalgic for a couple of reasons. First is that it’s got a live set each from two indie bands and it’s got proper basic artwork so it’s reminding me of getting weird mysterious live bootlegs and homemade tapes of indie bands when I was younger. Secondly, one of those sets is a Saturday Looks Good To Me one from way back in ‘03, back when the ‘60s-inspired indie tykes were arguably at their peak.
It’s quite a murky recording, almost impossible to decipher any of the between-song chat, but once the songs get going the lo-fi recording actually really suits them anyway and I’m not minding at all. It’s a real solid set list too, including the likes of ‘End of the Night’, ‘Meet Me By The Water’ and ‘Alcohol’ for a relentless (10 songs in 30 minutes) nostalgic stumble through this band’s finest moments. It’s kind of twee in places with the whole boy/girl ‘60s garage pop vibe, but then there’s some nice crunchy guitar leads in places too. If you’ve got a soft spot for the material then it’ll make you feel nice, although you may wish to gaze wistfully out of the window or look at old holiday photographs whilst doing so.
On the flip there’s a more recent set, this time from 2010, by Milk Teddy, who I’m not familiar with. They also peddle a kind of ‘60s-inspired lo-fi pop, this time with lots of organ, falsetto vocals and gently jangling guitars. It’s pretty nice stuff too but for me this tape’s all about the SLGTM set. Get yr nostalgia on.
