Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Radio Man '56 - Hearty Har
There is very little, purebred psychedelic 1960s style rock being made any more, but there is some sort of time-machine nonsense going on with Los Angeles' Hearty Har. Today, I want to introduce to you/share with you their latest single "Radio Man '56".
Check it out below:
This five piece band (including John Fogerty's sons Shane and Tyler) is 1960s psychedelic rock. I mean, I know that it was released earlier this month, but it is so pitch-perfect at creating that sound, that feeling, and that...well, everything that great psych-rock of the era had. "Radio Man '56" is strangely wonderful (even insisting that you "Do the Alien" at one point), and you can tell that they are a group that puts a lot of care into their sound--they operate out of their own studio, with it's own natural acoustics, and everything gets a warm, organic glow. The harmonies, the guitar (that solo!), the dirty lead vocals...just everything comes together in one trippy package.
I am definitely going to be keeping an eye on Hearty Har in future, as they continue to produce this crazy retro music, and look forward to hearing more in the future.
The August 2017 DSD Playlist is here! This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month. Also, here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List because....we are on Spotify!
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
