They have a new album of new covers of some classic psychedelic tunes. Similar concept, but with less known participants has been released in Chicago by Plastic Crimewave Syndicate. We also introduce a new artist for us, a singer songwriter from France, Theo Charaf. Today we also have two tributes, one to David Roback, legendary leader of Mazzy Star, Opal, Rainy Day and The Rain Parade who passed away recently.

Tena Rak, Å ećerWelcome to the first ‘regular’ edition of The Little Lighthouse in 2019. Today we play a tune from the new ESC Life album, out soon on Ill In The Head records in North America. ESC Life come from Croatia, and so does Tena Rak. She used to play drums in Vlasta Popić, but that band no longer plays together. So we check out her solo act dubbed Å ećer and quartet Mi Nerve with three other ladies, Ivana PuÅ¡nik , Tea Ovničević, and Ivana Ljubičić. Back in the USA, Terry Six and Louie Bankston (ex Exploding Hearts) are back with an excellent new album together. Eugene Chadbourne teamed up with The Sunwatchers and recorded an album tribute to Minutemen, Doug Sahm and Henry Flyn. Paisley Underground legends Bangles, Three O’Clock, Dream Syndicate and Rain Parade made a record together covering each other’s songs. It’s almost a follow up to the legendary Rainy Day album. John Petković and Dave James of Death of Samantha have a new synth pop duet, Metrolight and we check out one of the songs recorded live in Cleveland recently. Holly Golightly has a new English solo album out and lots of folks included it on their lists of best albums last year. Yes, it’s that good. Outrageous Cherry are back with their final album entitled Meet You In The Shadows completed before the passing of founding lead guitarist Larry Ray.

English rocker Hipbone Slim and Mama Rosin collaborator also has a record from a few months ago called Go Hog Wild. We also have some brand new stuff – the new EP for Kevn Kinney’s Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ and a new track from Rain Parade’s Matt Piucci. In the end, we pay a tribute to the legendary singer from Memphis, Bobby Blue Bland.
