My friends and family gave me some pretty awesome presents for my birthday, but I gave myself one that I want to share. Namely, I discovered this amazing band, The Zombies, and I’m really wondering how I never heard of them before. I’m all about the 60’s, but I’m often really irritated about the terrible quality of recordings from that era. Like, don’t even get me started on Jimi Hendrix. Such a tragedy. Anyhow, The Zombies are both wonderfully produced and brilliant songwriters. They sound kind of like The Beatles, but not in a sad and desperate way. I heard that Chester French was inspired by The Zombies’ album “Odessey and Oracle,” so I was like, what’s that? And thanks to the wonders of Hype Machine, I can’t stop listening! You’ll like it if you like The Beatles or if you realize how amazing The Beach Boys are. Also, there’s a good chance you’ll like them if you just like modern indie music. I’m developing a theory that The Zombies are time-travelers, because they don’t sound “old.”
You like? I never find any music to listen to on my own, so I was totally excited about this.
