- Miguel el Salam by Forever Pavot
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 31 January 2014
Here's a lovely 7" of psychedelic pop on Sound of Salvation, the label that introduced you to Klaus Johann Grobe. This time it's a Parisian who records under the name Forever Pavot. A delicious concoction it is too, with the A side 'Miguel el Salam' very much being a song of two halves. On one hand there's the dreamy psych-pop side with harpsichord twinkles and a bouncy little bassline, but then it bursts into quite a heavy section with a rich, fat organ tone and crackling fuzz on the bass. It's interesting that there's no guitar, it gives it a sort of Doorsy feel without sounding much like The Doors at all. I'm pretty sure this keyboard player likes Ray Manzarek though.
There's guitar on the other side though, some wah-ed, some fuzzed, and once again '60s psychedelia is the name of the game, with dream-like Syd Barrett-esque vocals, simple rhythms and buzzy, earthy guitar tones. Both good songs, both to be included on a forthcoming album which I await with interest.
