A new slice of the jukebox for a new year. Mostly focused on the garage (as usual) with a smattering of psych thrown in for good measure. Enjoy.

[MP3] Others - Oh Yeah
Starting things off on with a blues stomp on the garage floor. A gritty beat stutters out under a classic blues rumble. This is the early half of garage but it's definitely the kind that set the tone for many more to come; a ragged tale of love in a genre rife with heartbreak.

[MP3] Aorta - Strange
Mixing a heavy dose of fuzz with some impassioned vocals, Aorta take off on the later 60's psych palate. Indulgent in many ways the song breaks into a pretty decent solo before riding back on waves of fuzz.

[MP3] The KareTakers - Have You Seen My Baby
A pretty laid back slice of love turned wrong. This one rides a quasi-west coast vibe as pitched through the eyes of 60's garage. Mixing open tones with a blues vibe, the song got just enough swing to give it a bit of punch.

[MP3] Apollos Apache - Cry Me a Lie
Utilizing a heavy dose of organ mixed into a tale of love and desperation and a nice counterpoint of twangy strum; this is a pretty decent little number. Pretty straight forward but tipping the edge of the expansive wave of 60's garage-psych.

[MP3] The Avengers - Be a Cave Man
With a heavy snarl and a gritty beat, this represents some of the most misogynistic messaging in 60's garage. On the music side this kicks hard with a nice organ undercurrent and a few psych touches on the bridge, but with a dose of fun on the cave man yowl happening in the background.
