GRIP WEEDS -GIANT ON THE BEACH(Cheap Trick/Byrds/ CSNY) COLOR LPSUGARBUSH
Reissue of their classic 2004 album, limited to 300 copies. On translucent beige vinyl. This New Jersey band plays the kind of jangly, space-age rock perfected by bands like the Zombies, Love, and the Quicksilver Messenger Service.
There are elements of the Byrds circa 'Eight Miles High' or The Notorious Byrd Brothers, 'Revolver'-era Beatles, and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury bands.
Start with the heavy reliance on lush harmonies, mix in acoustic and electric guitars (complete with backward playing and some Coltrane-esque twisting solos), an insistent rhythm track, and ethereal lyrics, and the listener could easily believe himself lost in a time warp.
