Velvet Davenport - Lemon Drop Square Box
As you may recall, a few months ago I had posted this band's debut release after months of trying to track it down. A playful lo-fi psych throwback record that has been getting a good amount of attention on my ipod. Well, they've released a new incredibly awesome cassette through Moon Glyph Tape that might be one of my favorite things I've heard this year. Lemon Drop Square Box is a quick listen and will have you craving more, but the band accomplishes quite a bit in a short amount of time. The usage of the sitar (or sitar effect, I can't tell) and organ in "Drop", or the slow moving melodies of "Lemon" will have you closing your eyes watching the universe unfold on the back of your eyelids.
