Love For Sale

I’ve been playing Pete Molinari’s latest album a lot recently. It came out last Monday and it’s still revealing its charms on a daily basis. Theosophy is his fourth lp and, put simply, it’s his best collection of songs, recorded and mixed really well. Some of this must be down to the production and mixing skills of Andrew Weatherall and Tchad Blake. There’s nothing here that isn’t retro, defiantly retro, and the songs sounds like they could come from anywhere between 1955 and 1966 but that doesn’t detract from an album that I’m loving from start (Hang My Head in Shame) to finish (Love For Sale). This is that album closer, lightly 1966 psychedelia in tone, which rattles along with double tracked vocals, a smashing slide guitar part and some funny noises appearing here and there (Weatherall’s input possibly). Have a listen and then go and buy your own copy on cd or vinyl at¬†Cherry Red¬†Records. I’m awaiting my vinyl copy.
