Flashlite #200

Tiny MigrantsToday’s show is concentrated on Australia. On the 40th anniversary of the greatest rock compilation ever, the original Nuggets, a bunch of Australian bands gathered to make a tribute these days. The tribute is entitled Nuggets Antipodean Interpolations of the First Psychedelic Era and it brings to us 27 bands from the new Australian garage rock scene. This time we bring two new names from that record: Tiny Migrants and Palms. Outside the compilation, but still from Australia, we have duet Digger and The Pussycats and the new supergroup consisted of two members from The Beasts of Bourbon and two members from The Drones. The band is called Spencer P. Jones and the Nothing Butts. From Europe, we have My Buddy Moose, Americana band from Rijeka, Croatia, with their new single and the new name from San Francisco scene Kelley Stoltz. But the biggest news this week is definitely Eric Burdon who joined forces with Greenhornes for the new, exciting EP!

11. The Greenhornes – ****

The Greenhornes - ****Cincinnati band Greenhornes takes rock’n’roll back to the golden days of The Animals, Kinks and The Who. They don’t do it mechanically. Their songwriting is the key that makes this time travel an exciting experience. It is melancholic, and moody. This excellent concentration of talent was recognized back in 2005 by Jim Jarmusch who included their collaboration with Holly Golightly in his movie Broken Flowers. The band was busy with various side projects until this year that finally saw their first full length album in eight years. Four stars is a modest title. It’s five stars in my book.
