Music: Malkauns "Electric / Sunshine" single
Really vintage kind of "heart on sleeve, but my heart is an expensive piece of analog gear."
I've given this record quite a few spins and mostly dig it. Some killer bass lines and psyched-out zone-in's feel good outside of their precedents. Precedents tend to be the key feature here though. For me, groovy psyched out vintage acoustics sound cool, but let's face it, are vintage. I don't blame anyone for sounding like something, but you got to then acknowledge the lineage. Skipping several generations breeds pastiche. More pastiche.
As Nashville music goes though, first-rate. Bought this at Grimey's for 5.99. Screenprinted cardboard sleeve. Recomended!
