iTunes Review

Indie rock disciples will always champion the late, great Bill Doss for his innovative work with The Elephant 6 recording collective and his band The Olivia Tremor Control. After all, he’s influenced Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, and The Shins. But Doss’s side project The Sunshine Fix deserves equal recognition and praise. Though less experimental than tracks by The Olivia Tremor Control, the songs on 2000’s The Future History of a Sunshine Fix EP are still steeped deep in adoration for all things ‘60s psychedelic, starting with the opening “Sound's Around You (Oh No It Isn't! Cried The Little Lord Funk Leroy).” Using vintage instruments and antiquated analog recording gear, this track plays with such period-correct authenticity that it'd be easy to mistake it as an outtake from any of those English freakbeat compilations reissued by Bam-Caruso. “The Many Keys to Reunion” follows with hints of the Elephant 6 gang’s love for manipulating vintage studio effects before bandmate Seth Hall’s country-rock leanings get "Last Night I Had a Dream (Said I Had a Dream Last Night)" sounding delightfully weird and twangy.

I can imagine parents listening to this 'sort' of music around the home, in hopes of being the educators they so desire 'in the meantime' of life. I love it, really. I was then hoping to see this group live as I gather also, that I may see families with their children. Neat.

The Sunshine Fix was the brainchild of Bill Doss, former member of the Olivia Tremor Control. After the breakup of OTC, the Sunshine Fix showed Doss to be the Paul McCartney to Will Cullen Hart's John Lennon. Leaving the radical experimentalism of OTC to Hart's project Circulatory System, the Sunshine Fix focused on the more pop end of the spectrum, even incorporating some country and soul influences on their debut EP, A Future History of the Sunshine Fix. With the help of other members of the still-fertile...
