A few more morsels from the Jukebox this week, wrapping up some great L.A. cuts courtesy of Where The Action Is, filtering in some Iranian instrumental garage and topping it off with a nice dose of psych-pop. What more could you want?

[MP3] Ojooba Ha - Bas Ay Dokhtar Ha
Storming out of the Iranian underground Ojooba Ha give their best Ventures nod with an Eastern surf instrumental that rides high on organ and a bit of twang in the guitar strings. Propulsive and bubbly just like the best 60's instrumental fodder.

[MP3] The Merry-Go-Round - Listen! Listen!
Stomping fuzz and some serious Beatles nodding are present on this sprightly track. After a while the love of the moptops becomes inescapable but a lack of originality doesn't slight the track one bit for its catchy melody and superb quality.

[MP3] Brass Buttons - Hell Will Take Care of Her
Slowly simmering bit of psych pop here, leaning on some guitar effects and a yearning melody. The track builds over the course of 3:00 and though it doesn't explode into the kind of coda it could have it keeps the psychedelic tension brimming.

[MP3] The Premiers - Get On This Plane
The Premiers lay down sinister garage blues that waft into hazy choruses but all the time stay pretty anchored on a fat slab of fuzz chord swagger. Not quite making its mind up completely but balancing the impulses of garage and psych admirably.

[MP3] Deepest Blue - Pretty Little Thing
Garage via the frat house shuffle, Deepest Blue get feet moving and its hard not to crack a wide smile at the rumbling bass and Van Morrison-esque croon that hearkens this nicely to Them-styled rave ups. Though the band didn't last, this one's well worth enough repeat plays to fill out an album.
