The Norwegian prog-psychedelia-alternative-folk(?)-hard-heavy-rock band Motorpsycho is releasing a new album (Behind the Sun) 7th of March. This year. Only a year after their "Still Life with Egg Plant" album.

Here's


I like it. Instabuy for me.

Found a cover from one of my favorite bands. Not sure where it came from.

"Moving in Stereo" by The Curtain Society

edit-
and another golden find! Been wanting to share this track for years. Someone finally put it up. Enjoy.
"Sparkle" by The Rosemarys
(bonus points if anyone can correctly identify the guest female vocalist)

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Ideal music considering the point at which you hear it.

Ammonia Avenue - by The Alan Parsons Project - the title track of the album with the same name.

My favorite song about biking. NSFW or just keep the volume low.

Thumbs up to Dusty, Nirvana and Hendrix. I don't actually like Dusty's song 'I Just Don't Know etc etc', but it's kind of the soundtrack to my life, so it still owns me, lol. Musically my fave by her was 'Son of A etc etc'.

Nirvana/Hendrix brings me to the tracks I've been listening to the past couple of days. I met a guy in the supermarket the other day. It turned out he was one of my friends from when I was young and 'on the scene'. We were very lucky with our scene, it was another one of those 'magic moments' in musical history when people were creating sounds that transcended social and racial boundries to create something akin to a 'Summer of Love' for a couple of years.

Nirvana's 'Smells Like etc etc' was certainly one such anthem of those years, but the rest of their stuff was more niche to a specific sub-genre. There was so much 'new' in those years that Nirvana was just 'one of many' rather than the legend it later became. At the time any one of these groups were of equal legend with the following songs, but you wont hear them on the radio to 1/100th of the rate you'll hear less meaningful tracks from those years:

Stone Roses - Fool's Gold
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSD11dnphg0

Happy Mondays - Kinky Afro
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvS1jeZftBw

Inspiral Carpets - Move
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75ENlCgERcQ

DeeeLite - Groove is in the Heart
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etviGf1uWlg

The B52's - Love Shack
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leohcvmf8kM

Snap - I've Got The Power
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BRv9wGf5pk

The KLF - Justified and Ancient
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPjggN-KByI

Basically, it didn't matter what you shoved in the tape-deck, it was PARTY TIME! And I seriously advise you take the time to fully take in each track and then realise all these sounds hit in 'unison'.

As per usual I've forgotten a couple of tracks that the list simply wouldn't be complete without - should any of you be taking the least bit of interest in this little dive into the lesser known, but equally rich, summer of love:

Primal Scream - Loaded
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDK2svrGG_c

And the grand culminating anthem of anthems for the era:
Rozalla - Everybody's Free (to feel good)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqcVop6rG18

This little batch is just the tip of the ice-burg too, to list every genuinely mind-blowing classic from these years would require days of listening.
