Song of the Day - March 16, 2006

Sam McBean of Black Mountain has released his second album with the Pink Mountaintops, Axis of Evol. The album comes from that drug enriched vein of neo-psychedelic folk and the title has obvious Sonic Youth influences. The track "Plastic Man, You're the Devil" starts out with some very simple guitar plucking and Sam McBean's subdued vocals all reminiscent of something you might have heard in the pre-Starbuck days of 1960's coffehouses. The song is spiked with brief moments of honky tonk influenced electric guitar and drum accompainment that reminds me of The Rolling Stones. Click here to listen.
