Prolific psych pop dude Kelley Stoltz has a new 7" this week, which is nice. On the first side we've got 'Cross Your Mind' which is quite a simple and catchy song with lovely watery chimey guitar, heavily reverbed vocals and drifting synths over a dry and driving rhythm section. It's good, but more interesting is the B-side 'The Anarchist In Me', which has been co-written and performed by Tim Cohen from The Fresh and Onlys - surely the most exciting 7" collaboration of Stoltz's since that banger he did with The Intelligence a couple of years back.
This one has some Manzarek-esque organ tinkles, jangly guitar and a shuffling rhythm with tambourines and handclaps and a quirky vocal line about selling out and getting a proper job and trying to fit in, a kind of post-generation-x anthem. I sometimes wonder what happens to Winston Smith after his revelation at the end of '1984'. Perhaps the lights dim and he sings this song. Or maybe they're just taking the piss out of part time anarchists...or themselves.
Bottom line is that these songs are both dead catchy garage pop just like you would expect from Stoltz.
