A Mountain Of One
is described by Rough Trade as «a drugged out medley of Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Santana, Arthur Russell, Laurel Canyon, JJ Cale wandering around Glastonbury at 5am». Other sources call the threesome of Mo Morris, Zeben Jameson und Leo Elstob «Nouvelle Balearic».
This is from the album «Abbey Road». Eveytime I listen to it it sucks me in and blows my head. Lennon's lyrics and harmonies are breathtaking and make you realise just what all the fuss was about. «Because the world is round, it turns me on... Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.. Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry». Not bad for a hippy in a white suit!
Any song that makes you play air drums and want to get inebriated everytime you hear it works for me. Sounds like organised chaos. Balearic beer tune.
One hot Summer on the south coast in the early nineties I discovered Nick Drake's music and my first love all at once. All too much for ones young heart to handle. Beautiful song, beautiful memories.
I was 5 years old. Apparently my first obsession, I loved it so much that my mother chose to dress me in Tartan and buy me a mini drum kit. Very sharp.... thanks mum.
«Moon River... wider than a mile I'm crossing you in style some day...». Nice lyrics to eventually float down stream to.
A song showing Jason Pierces heart literally bleeding from a lost love. So heavy it hurts.
A song all about regret. I managed to listen to it on repeat when a long relationship ended a couple years ago.
The first record I payed for with my pocket money at about 9 years old. Adam Ant was my second obsession. I found him otherwordly. I still adore the record. Battle cries and tribal drums. How could you not. Genius.
Effortless celestial genius. A song to create an atmosphere like no other I've heard. This song should be under the word «cosmic» in the dictionary.
A dear friend of mine in Berlin played me this and turned me green with envy. From the title alone. Beautiful passionate poetic lyrics and melody whilst sounding like someone playing a fender in a swamp. A groove to die for.
