This is the third full length studio album from psych poppers The See See. Eschewing the modern day strum and drang of the repeato garage types in favour of a subtle update the sunshine pop of the late 60's movers and shakers such as The Byrds and Love, the band have again put together and album of catchy pop nuggets with harmonies and hooks in plentiful supply. Happy to see comparisons to the wonderful 80's janglings of the Rain Parade and their Paisley Underground brethren as well as their forefathers the Flying Burrito Brothers and Big Star.
Comes on a one time pressing of 750 on white vinyl on the Great Pop Supplement label which won't hang about.

- Once Forever and Again by The See See
'60s loving psych popsters The See See have been going from strength to strength in recent years, with their albums quickly selling out and the mighty Sundazed introducing their sunny retro-pop sound to audiences stateside with a very cool anthology. Hot on the heels of that collection comes a brand new album proper, 'Once, Forever and Again', which features recent singles 'Featherman' and 'The Rain & the Snow' alongside 11 fresh tracks. Soundwise you probably pretty much know what to expect here - a dreamy psych-pop sound with heavy debts to the Byrds and Syd Barrett, the British Invasion and the Paisley Underground, seasoned with a splash of Big Star-esque power-pop.
With some nice wibbly vintage organ tones in places, warm, foggy guitars and a fistful of timeless-sounding pop hooks, The See See continue refining their hazy and celebratory '60s pop aesthetic with real verve here. 'Let Me Be The One (For You To Love)' stands out with its dreamy verses and punchy chorus, and the Ray Manzarek-esque organ line in the opener is very charming, although when they drop the pace on tracks like 'Sun Arrows' and piano ballad 'Ynys Las' I'm less convinced. The highs far outweigh the lows though and on balance it's another excellent offering from this reliable bunch.
