Title: Beside Yr 90s

I have the vague recollection that I have heard this before but that could be because the ever rambling New Mystikal Troubadours are fond of continually reinventing themselves as if parody were the sincerest form of copyright violation. These two songs – “Nature’s Way” and “These Things Forgotten” – ramble amiably as if the sixties had never stopped and San Francisco had become the epicentre of the universe. I know, and you now know, that they are from Baltimore but hear these songs and you will think that the appeal of the west coast was just too much for them to resist.

Still, I’d rather listen to this than indie rock any day.
