Wicked Italo track
Wednesday, November 10, 2010
Back when I started blogging I regularly stopped off at the lovely mp3 blog Burnt Brown Sounds run by Karl from the equally lovely Speck Mountain. Burnt Brown Sounds is now the name of a independent record label with Karl's band on the roster but the blog, alas, is no more.
I haven't downloaded music for a while but most of what I have is stashed on blank DVDs. However I somehow managed to delete the folder of handpicked gems from BBS though I do remember one especially fine track (Valle De Los Espejos) from 70s Argentinian psych-folk group Los Blops which I lately found on Youtube to my surprise and offer here for your mellow enjoyment.

You know those obscure songs which go around your head for years? They stick - especially if you note the name down and record them (on cassette as I did back then).
Well, chills are coming over me and I'm moping in an nostalgic way so I remembered a tune by a group called Whistler (link to their underwhelming Wikipedia entry) called You And Me.
Anyway found this thing through LastFM called WE7 and here I hope, you will be able to listen to this song (though it's a bit different to the Peel Session I originally heard / recorded)
Shame this band didn't make it - they had this mournful / youthful folk thing down, musically proficient too.
Joint on a bridge over the Thames in Winter aged 21 vibe.
