Album Review

Silver Sunshine are a quartet from San Diego. They wish they were from England circa 1966-67. The classic sounds of the rough-and-tumble Brit psych groups like the Move, the Who, the Kinks and Pink Floyd, as well as lesser-known bands from the era like Skip Bifferty, Honeybus and the mighty Wimple Winch are what inspire them. The Beatles, too, you can't ignore their influence. Silver Sunshine do a pretty good job of pulling it off on their self-titled debut album, combining a modern update of the freakbeat sound (spiraling guitars, twee lyrics, billowing vocal harmonies and stately pianos) and some hooky tunes.

As it is, the group should be proud of how closely they come to re-creating the sound of mid-'60s London and their debut would fit nicely into a collection filled with Move CDs and Rubbles box sets.

They draw their inspiration form the classic sounds of the post-British Invasion freakbeat and psychedelic bands like the Move, the Kinks, Pink Floyd, and a host of other lesser-known bands you might find on the Rubble Collection box sets. Richard Vaughn (vocals, guitar), Conor Riley (vocals, guitar), Stuart Sclater (bass, vocals), and Ian Sclater formed the group in December of 2001. After a couple of years of refining their sound, the group...
