It’s been 50 years since 1967 and the “Summer of Love” – a moment in history where peace, love, and freedom inspired positive grassroots change. You could even argue that one could split the 20th century into two eras: before 1967 and after 1967, the latter indicating the beginning of the sexual revolution, women’s rights movement, and aftermath of the civil rights movement. The 60’s didn’t really become the 60’s until 1967.

Experimental music flourished during this period, with “flower power” psychedelia in full swing. Iconic albums like The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts ...

A Long-Lost 90s Psychedelic Blues Treasure Rescued from Obscurity

Source: New York Music Daily

Guitarist Hugh Pool is sort of a New York counterpart to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Obviously, that’s not a completely fair comparison, considering that Pool outlived Vaughan the day he turned 36. He’s more versatile than Vaughan ever was, tackling everything from the fiery electric blues he’s best known for, to the spare, antique, otherworldly sound of his Mulebone collaboration with multi-instrumentalist John Ragusa. Then again, Vaughan didn’t live to see himself inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame – alongside both B.B. King and Eric Clapton, go figure – like Pool did last year.

Pool has also just re-released a rare ...

Alt-rock stars MGMT will play the Electric Factory tonight in support of their self-titled album, which was released in September. The band blasted onto the world’s radar a few years back with hit singles “Time to Pretend”, “Electric Feel”, and “Kids”. Since then, their sound has transformed and become more low-key but is still very MGMT. Watch them calmly convince you that “Your Life is A Lie” below and get tickets here.

Singer-songwriter Alice Smith will bring her spirited R&B anthems to the World Cafe Live stage tonight. Smith released She, her long-awaited follow ...

Lively, Intriguing Folk-Rock Jams from McGuffin Electric

Source: New York Music Daily

Italian acoustic trio McGuffin Electric build an attractively pastoral psychedelic folk sound out the lush interweave of Matteo Fiorini’s guitars, banjo and uke, Erica Polini’s violin and Domenico Peluchetti’s bouzouki and bass. Their album Brightelephant, a free download from the atmospherically-inclined Acustronica netlabel, is aptly titled; their long instrumental vamps have a colorful airiness as well as elephantine length and heft.

The title track is a long, pretty, swaying Neapolitan folk-rock theme with atmospheric violin juxtaposed against slightly out-of-tune ukulele that adds a surreal edge. Kismet, Hardy rises and falls over a spare acoustic waltz tune, basically a dreamy, ...
