Bam-Caruso

Plasticland Plasticland LP

Ah yes, more of that seductive psych sound. While it’s usually on the quieter side of things, the jangly guitars and great tunes remind me a lot of the legendary BIG STAR. Some repeats from earlier releases, but a great album overall.

The Eyes Blink LP

The EYES are a British ’60s group along the lines of the early WHO—mod to the max—who never did manage to put out an album back then. And now the reason becomes clearer, as this one contains too much filler. But there are a few killers, including the haunting “When the Night Falls” and the hilarious “My Degeneration.”
