Here's a damn fine slab of psych-rock pop, straight from London! The Tamborines have concoted a sound that's a little bit old, a little bit new, a little bit borrowed, and occasionally a little bit blue. Sally O'Gannon is a four-song EP, with three excellent songs (one is a demo of the title track)."Be Around" and "Come Together" are enjoyable, but it's the title track that really burns up the speakers. Had the Brian Jonestown Massacre/Dandy Warhols revolution truly taken place in the 1990s, "Sally O'Gannon" would have been the love child of that revolution, as it combines the classic rock elements found in BJM's style, as well as the Dandy's modern pop sensibilites. Oh, did I mention that Frankie Teardrop of BJM is enlisted here for production assistance, as well as Mark Gardner of Ride? Yeah. That's badass. This EP's been out a little bit but I just discovered it, and it's worth the mention. I can't wait to hear more from this excellent group!
