Spotify recommended this, and I'm loving it so far. It's Japanese psychedelic pop.

EDIT: OK, I'm now on a 24-minute track of spoken word. It's kinda creepy.

Right now I'm really excited by these guys, with their solid rhythms and fuzzed-up guitar. Is there even a touch of Jim Morrison in their singer? I'm not sure.

There is a little Morrison there. It reminds me more of how the vocals are drenched in reverb which is often done with indie, Minimal Wave and Death Rock vocals. The guitar riff reminds me of another song, buit can't think of it at the moment.

The falsetto in that Harumi song reminds me of:
Brenton Wood - The Oogum Boogum Song 1967


I guess my favorite Japanese Psychedelic band would be The Mops. They can hit high note too especially in the intro.
THE MOPS - 永久運動(Perpetual Motion)

^ I must admit that when I saw the date and country of origin, I didn't expect much of your Harumi track, but I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks for introducing me to someone new. But spoken word for 24 minutes! That's pushing the envelope, but not in a good way.

Neapolitan's Oogum Boogum track was an interesting curiosity; great voice, and a nice line about "her brother's sloppy shirt", because it illustrates something many of us have noticed; that a beautiful woman can make the most unpromising clothes sexy.

Another famously good voice is Stevie Winwood's. This atmospheric track is from Traffic's self-titled 1968 album. Overall, the psychedelic lyrics on this album are nicely counterbalanced by natural, live-in-the-studio musicianship.
( TBH, though, I'm only listening to this so that I have something to add to the thread - but that still counts, doesn't it? )

Listening to Camembert Electrique , Gong's masterpiece. David Allen was Aussie (like me) and then moved to the UK. I felt a great loss when he passed recently��

That Harumi set was never released in Japan.

He got the big push from an appearance on the late 60's TV popshow, American Bandstand.

Unlike say John Peel, Dick Clark was certainly not known for introducing musical change in direction. But Harumi's single sparked this and he was a big sensation with flowery robes and lightshow like not seen at that time on tv.

Verve gambled big and did an unprecidented thing - put out Harumi "same" as a double set. This at a time when only handful of KNOWN artists - like Dylan - had made it to double lp sets.

And one of the 2 lp set being long track spoken word mingled with atmospheric music - totally unlike the popmusic on the first disc.


Big risk for the record label - and likely they lost money on it.

This has been my favorite psych album recently - Brazilian band Os Mutantes' self titled from 1968.



They appear to have a lot of other albums I've yet to explore - has anyone here done a deep dive into their discography?
