For March 2013, @MOJOmagazine accompanied their Pink Floyd cover feature with a freebie titled Echoes, after the side-long tune on Floyd's sixth LP Meddle. It collects modern psychedelia and I am sad to report that it is by and large a true dud. Tunes by the likes of Voice of the Seven Thunders, Teeth of the Sea, Mugstar, and other would-be wonders grind along tediously, many of them seven minutes or longer. I wager that in their native environs many of these songs are more enjoyable; they just don't come across very well when excerpted and stacked alongside all-too similar tunes by others. Then there are the buzz bands that I'm just not fond of (Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra). There is a small handful of tunes I might want to hear again, and the one that jumped out most for me was this one by British quartet Temples; it's the lead track from their 2014 debut LP Sun Structures.
I heard the first seconds of this song a million times from a radio commercial and kinda liked it, so I was pretty pleased when I discovered it via Spotify :) . And I think it makes for a great farewell jam... Goodbye guys, and thanks for all the music :')
