smell of incense A Curious Miscellany (CD, £13.50)label: september gurls
These miraculous psych-progsters hail from Arendal, Norway. TSOI weave a rich and colourful musical tapestry incorporating influences by Canterbury Scene, British folk rock of the 60ies & 70ies, US acid/West Coast rock and the "Beautiful Balloon" sounds of 60ies California. They incorporate viola, sitar, mellotron in their sound. This compilation, covering the time between 1992 and 2007, contains songs from early singles, compilations, demos, alternative mixes & a previously unreleased track from the sessions for their 3rd album "Of Ullages and Dottles". Includes cover versions of United States of America, 50 Foot Hose, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Incredible String Band, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Folque, Merrell Fankhauser, and more. Lovely artwork by Gunhilde Langerud (who also did the cover of the other TSOI albums) and Bumble B.
