Next spring, we're releasing a hugely extended version of 'The Three Seasons' set on three CDs (maybe four, you know what we're like) and 'Sunny Spells' is a 7" EP taster of what's in-store, with four tracks from the forthcoming CD release, featuring:
- Chad and Jeremy
- Schizo Fun Addict
- Hanford Flyover
- Us and Them
four lovely re-tellings of psychedelically-inclined songs from the sixties
Chad & Jeremy give us a stunning unplugged version of their own song 'Rest In Peace', from their 60s album, 'Of Cabbages and Kings' - as close as it gets to perfection, it really is as if the last 50 years never happened, never mind 40.
Schizo Fun Addict show a lovely, delicate touch that you might not have heard before from the band that set FdM off back in 2008 - with a new take on the Mamas and Papas classic, 'Dedicated To The One I Love'; and it's great to hear Ilona V back singing with the band
Hanford Flyover are new to FdM but come up with a fantastic version of the criminally-overlooked Neon Pearl's 'Just Another Day' (you'll be able to see them play at the 18th Dream festival next year)
..and our favourite Scandinavian duo Britt and Anders aka Us and Them round things off with a typically wistful rendition of the Neil Young solo track, 'What Did You Do To My Life?'
You can listen in to Hanford Flyover's recording HERE
Artwork is by John Hurford - put it all together and the EP really does create a sunny spell, perfect for dispelling those winter blues.
