It’s not every day you hear the autoharp but here it is, trilling away. Another 7” on the dependable Great Pop Supplement which, if you are a fan of lolloping, druggy ‘60s inspired jangle pop you are more than likely to want to add to your collection. There are probably about a million other more obscure influences I could pick but it really does sound like The Stone Roses - there’s no getting away from it.
Like the much hyped Allah-La’s, these have the ‘60s sound nailed down perfect, though the songs don’t quite have the melodic twists and turns to stand up to the greats. That autoharp is beginning to piss me off a little but otherwise the jangly guitars really hit the spot. On the flip we have something that recalls David Roback’s pre-Mazzy Star psych poppers The Rain Parade. If you haven’t heard ‘Emergency Third Rail Power Trip’ yet, go seek. It has two of the best songs ever written on there amongst a slew of crazily authentic ‘60s fodder.
