Summer is coming to a close. It's about time. I can't handle the non-stop pace, and I sure did try to hang on. Time to get back to reality...back to selfishness, back to myself, back to the grind. It's going to be a rocky transitional period but I'm going to keep that 'boy of summer' smile alive!

Atlas Sound (Bradford Cox of Deerhunter) and Noah Lennox (Panda Bear/Animal Collective) did a track together, it's better than good.

Record of the Week.

I found this record in the basement of a Seattle record shop, Bop Records. America's link between psychedelia and what soon became heavy metal.

Vanilla Fudge [1967]
In a debut consisting of covers, nobody could accuse Vanilla Fudge of bad taste in their repertoire; with stoned-out, slowed-down versions of such then-recent classics as "Ticket to Ride," "Eleanor Rigby," and "People Get Ready," they were setting the bar rather high for themselves. Even the one suspect choice -- Sonny Bono's "Bang Bang" -- turns out to be rivaled only by Mott the Hoople's version of "Laugh at Me" in putting Bono's songwriting in the kindest possible light. Most of the tracks here share a common structure of a disjointed warm-up jam, a Hammond-heavy dirge of harmonized vocals at the center, and a final flat-out jam. Still, some succeed better than others: "You Keep Me Hanging On" has a wonderfully hammered-out drum part, and "She's Not There" boasts some truly groovy organ jams. While the pattern can sound repetitive today, each song still works as a time capsule of American psychedelia.
