Last Monday I posted a remix by Duncan Gray of an Albanian group called Pines In The Sun, psychedelic Balearica from Tirana. Now there’s another song online (from what is going to be an e.p. out digitally this Friday). Sun is a spaced out, sunset sort of tune, with an addictive wobbly vocal part, some piano, a keening descending synth, some pedal steel guitar, acoustic, live percussion. Cannot get enough of this right now.

Monday’s Long Song

I followed a link to this over the weekend and am glad I did, eight sun dappled and blissed out minutes of glorious sound from Albania. Pines In The Sun are from Tirana, Zig Zag Sea is their debut release and it has been remixed by Duncan Gray who keeps it hazy and dubby and slightly psychey but also snaps it into focus with the guitar solo at about four minutes. That big bubbly keyboard bass riff is wonderful too. Is Adriatic Balearica a thing? It is now.
