Mystic Braves - Desert Island (2014)

There seems to be no end to the number of bands that can effortlessly create that wonderful 60s psych that is oh so the rage these days. Well, maybe not "the rage" since this is on cassette tape (and vinyl if that is your kind of thing). But there is no doubt these kids have studied the Nuggets box set thoroughly and comprehensively, and with all that work they have produced "Desert Island," one of my favorite records to come out this year. Literally every  track is a standout or single (try and listen to There's a Pain and Coyote Blood and not fall in love), and the sheer quality of the compositions set them apart from other retro-focused garage rock acts currently in circulation. This is music for just about anyone who enjoys a good tune, but followers of this blog will likely find a soft spot in their heart for this awesome release from Burger Records.
