(09.22.06) Recommends:

Irving, "Death in the Garden, Blood on the Flowers" (Eenie Meenie Records, 2006).

The title track sounds like it came from Liverpool in 1963. It's from LA in 2006. It's like cosmic rock. Psychedelic pop. Of Montreal and Beechwood Sparks. Hooks and harmonies and whirling background noises. The band is a "collective" which, wikipedia tells me, means all the members write the songs and share lead singing duties.

Also recommended: "The Curious Thing About Leather" from their 2003 EP "I Hope You're Feeling Better Now" (currently available for listening on the band's myspace page: I almost fear recommending this song, because once you hear it you'll have to listen to it on repeat for four straight weeks. Down with productivity! Up with Irving!
