Clyde Built, Sunday 7th March 2021
Sunday morning coming down. This is the general vibe of Sunday’s Spiritual Fantasy on Clyde Built Radio. Tune in this Sunday for more of the same, if you don’t know what that is then tune in. OK, what I will say is that the music usually comes from a bygone era most often the 60’s/70’s, however; If the sound fits newer releases pop up every once in a while. This months show has three new tracks from Laraaji (All saints), Gold Dust Twins (Numero Group) and Bobby Lee.
Bobby Lee’s new album ‘Origin Myths’ was released digitally worldwide on March 5th, with a vinyl LP out May 7th with FOUR extra songs via Tompkins Square. There is an awesome tape option available on BL’s Bandcamp – home dubbed cassette of the album with one-off collage artwork plus a unique mixtape. If you dig the sounds of ‘Origin Myths’ and last years ‘Shakedown in Slabtown’ album, you can imagine what kind of vibe a Bobby Lee mixtape might sound like.
On ‘Origin Myths’ dusty desert jams, set to a slow BPM drum machine is the road Bobby Lee walks down. The sun comes up and down with this album, and in between cosmic country scorches eight psych instrumentals that are ambient, primitive and native. Bobby plays all the instruments; each track is a vignette of blissed-out meditative guitar and mellowed out reverb. Check out ‘Fire Medicine Man’, and let’s talk about Wilson Tan. This is so El Rancho! Now let’s get that mixtape!
