The Greek Theatre - Broken Circle (Vinyl)
Many of you know how much I admire Sugarbush Records. Markus has been busy again with multiple releases this month. The Greek Theatre's follow up to Lost Out At Sea has been highly anticipated and you won't be disappointed.
This is Psychedelia of the highest order from the Swedish outfit. Laid back, bordering on Folk and Prog, proper Psych. Those gentle vocals weave into the pastoral background, this is real chill out stuff. The Greek Theatre are streets ahead of any of the Psychedelic pretenders.
Don't expect to rock out. You need to allocate 43 minutes to listen to Broken Circle all the way through. It's hard to pick out favourite tracks from something put together so lovingly. It really does feel like a complete piece.
Having said that, I've streamed my favourite two songs in this post and Stray Dog Blues is particularly wonderful. If you see the word Psychedelic and run away fast, this is the time to stop and listen, it'll change your mind. Tune In and Drop Out etc.
You can buy the album here and discover Sugarbush's other delights at the same time.
