The Dragons are a pair of session musician brothers from the 60's (later to be honary Beach Boys) who have been unarchived by Ninja Tune and for good reason. Only 1 track on this luscious collection of jazzy spaced-up soul-rock grooves has ever surfaced before, on a Surf movie soundtrack So now 'BFI' becomes their debut album proper, almost 40 years after the tracks were laid down. It's frisky, funky-as-fuck summer music that at one time would have had me sneering like the heathen indie kid I once was but now I can feel the warmth & cosmic funk flow through my veins. The sheer quality & easygoing psychedelic swirl of the 11 songs baffles me as I can't understand why they've been laid dormant for so long. There's certainly that sense of timeless wonder throughout that you'd love to bits if you in any way felt an affiliation with contemporaries da Super Furries or some of the weirder aspects of late 60's freakfunk, psychedelia & psych-folk. There's jazz funk, Jazz's retarded cousin, then there's this hugely organic & accesible pop album you can buy. Never sounded so relevant. A soundtrack for a (hopefully) warm & blissed out September. A sweet surprise indeed
