-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers! Our Pick this week, from New Jersey: The Grip Weeds! Their newest album, How I Won The War, is out now on recently-revived label JEM Recordings.
At 17 tracks this new album -out today, is sure to satisfy fans both new to their sound and those who are well-acquainted with the band. As on past releases you're assured of that Grip Weeds blend of power-pop and psychedelia which is pure aural bliss to these ears. Also featured on this new release is a great cover of George Harrison's "The Inner Light," first heard as a b-side to the "Lady Madonna" Beatles single. The song is in capable hands here. Lastly, Kristin Pinell, as lead vocalist on the "Over and Over" track, is a revelation. You may hit the repeat button a few times, too!
All hail The House of Vibes!!!
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!
