Song(s) of the Day # 2,162 Cosmonauts

Tulip Fever, the redoubtable and articulate blog listed on the right hand site of this page, chooses California's Cosmonauts latest record Star 69 among its Top Ten albums of the year. It's probably an act of some generosity as the record doesn't tell us anything that Jesus & Mary Chain, Spacemen 3, Spiritualised, The Verve, Primal Scream. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Brian Jones Massacre haven't told us many times before.

Pretty much psych by numbers, considering the strung out essence of this sound, Cosmonauts are frankly rather conservative. We have some velvet mornings and some candy talking pretty much as you'd expect. There are also some decent, frazzled tunes to enjoy along the way though. Here are three.
