The Babe Rainbow – “The Babe Rainbow” (2015) review
The Babe Rainbow – The Babe Rainbow (Flightless Records, 2015)
Babe Rainbow’s EP, released as a limited edition of 1000 on pink vinyl, creeps up on you like the first inklings that the dose of acid you just took is kicking in, causing an uncontrollable smile inch across your face, and visionary happiness to ooze from every pore.
Sadly this intoxicating breezy psychedelic wave is limited to but four songs, all of which are laced with twanging guitars, wah wah, a romantic vibe, whimsical lyrics and an irresistible fragrance from days gone by, laid down by a trio of wandering minstrels destined to make your trip all it should be, going by the names of Kool Breeze, Arrow, and Blue Spirit, instantly bring to mind the monikers of Spacemen 3 who used Sonic Boom and Spaceman.
In June of 2017 their first full album will be released as a limited edition on green vinyl that is already sold out, and if this light handed EP is any indication of what is about to be unveiled, the pop psychedelic world is in for a rare and special treat.
