-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers! Our choice for Pick of the Week call Sydney, Australia, home: Richard In Your Mind! Their new album, Ponderosa, is out now via the Rice Is Nice label.
Offering up a fourteen-track embarrassment of riches, the band, Richard Cartwright, Conrad Greenleaf, Pat Torres, Richard Cuthbert, and Joe Muller, have conjured yet another satisfying release to add to their remarkable catalog. (In truth, one of the best albums I've heard all year is their 2007 release, The Future Prehistoric, available on Bandcamp for the "name your price" option!)On this excursion the band gives us sitar, synth's, plenty of guitar a-wobble, and impeccable percussion, saturated liberally with tongue-in-cheek humor by a band clearly having fun being. That's quite enough for me. And, I think it will be for you, too. Try some:
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every other Thursday from 11pm to 1 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
