Welcome to psych pop week here at the Finest Kiss. No we won’t be going down memory lane talking about bands like the Zombies, The Bee Gees, Free Design, the Elephant 6 Collective, or Witch Hazel. Instead we’ll be covering some new records that dip their feet into the psychedelic ink jar.
Today we take a look at the excellent new record from Austalia’s Crayon Fields. All the Pleasures of the World is the follow up to Animal Bells which came out in 2006. Animal Bells was a fine debut but didn’t seem to get much attention, mostly because it didn’t get released outside of Austrailia. All the Pleasures of the World currently is relegated to same fate, but is such a leap in sonic quality that it can’t be for long. Pleasures ups the lusciousness factor with a set of songs that will slip inside your consciousness. It’s like a drug, after hearing this record a few times you’ll find yourself needing a fix from it on a regular basis.
Wait! There’s more, the video for Mirror Ball, one of two singles already released from the record.
