I Do Hear A Single

The Zags - Dada Plan

Dada Plan has already appeared on Wayne's excellent Flavour Of The Month compilation and I'm loving the song so much that the album is going to get a thorough listen and most likely a review.The Portland Oregon band provide a real slice of late 70's UK New Wave, a little Undertones, a little Summer Pop. It's a cracking listen.

You can buy the song as a Name Your Price here and the whole album is dirt cheap at 5 dollars.

The Optic Nerve - Penelope Tuesday

The excellent State Records is a label that is admired in these parts, particularly for the dedication to 60's Beat and Psych. This 7 Inch Single from New York's The Optic Nerve continues the excellence. A "groovy feeling" akin to Herman's Hermits going a bit psychy, akin to The Orgone Box. 

You can buy the single here, stocks are limited. You can find out more about State Records here.

The Bopp - Why Didn't You Say

Bordeaux's The Bopp specialise in a mixture of 60's Pop and 70's laid back Pop Rock. It's really pleasant harmonic beat driven pop and this single is available on Bandcamp as a Name Your Price. What have you got to lose?

You can listen and buy here.

Timothy Hay - Time Has A Way

Time Has A Way is released on FDR, the same label as Somerdale's magnificent Shake It Like Maggie album.  Hailing from Chesterfield New Jersey offers up a great laid back single, sounding countryish at first, it develops into a Rolling Stones like vibe. A really good listen and you can buy the single on a Name Your Price.
