Menk are two people from St. Petersburg, Russia and II is their last release at the moment. Their music is drone, it is psychedelic, it has kraut elements, and it is intoxicating and addictive. The sounds first seem to swirl and become entangled in hazy guitar tones and later erupt and alter our perceptual abilities. With songs like Блажь, Сон,  Рассвет, but also Нарайана, Menk manage to immerse us in their immensely magical world. Do i need to speak more?



THE PEPPERMINT TROLLEY CO. The Peppermint Trolley Company


The Peppermint Trolley Co. from Californian   was released their only album in 1968, and also they had been preceded   3-4 singles. Their music was a sunny blend of pop, baroque-rock, folk, but also light psychedelic sounds. The band members were Danny Faragher, Jimmy Faragher, Greg Tornquist, Casey Cunningham, and, for a time, Patrick McClue. Influenced by the big bands of that time, Doors, Beatles, Stones, but also by the Beach Boys vocals, The Peppermint Trolley Co. recorded 11 songs dominated by vocal harmonies and of course the harpsichord, while pop aesthetics emerge from each song on the album. Among all these songs of The Peppermint Trolley Co. the ones that stand out and which gave them a good place in the pantheon of 60s psychedelic/pop music, are Put Your Burden Down, Beautiful Sun, Sunrise, Fatal Fallacy.                  A highly melodic pop album for which this reissue is the first official and is expected to sold out soon!
