One of the most anticipated album releases of the year is here, Mystic Braves’ third LP, which has appeared in digital form only. The vinyl should be available from Lollipop sometime next year, but this means that we have another contender for our imminent end-of-year lists. This year, I will also be submitting my lists to HYMN, but I’m not sure how their tally will work.
I must admit I was a bit late in catching onto last year’s Mystic Braves masterpiece Desert Island, which has eventually revealed itself as one of the best records of 2014. The cover of “Pain In My Heart” is right up my street. And now we’ll also have to look out for the upcoming 45 by related outfit The Creation Factory (how brilliant is that name?) on Market Square Recordings. Days of Yesteryear delivers all the jangle, organ and psychedelia you could possibly wish for on a longplayer, check it out on bandcamp.
