37. THE VELVET CRUSH - 'Gentle Breeze' / 'Party Line' (demo) / 'On My Side' (Bobsled 15) 2000
Under-rated band The Velvet Crush released this three song CD single on Bobsled Records. 'Gentle Breeze' is taken from their album 'Free Expression' but the other two tracks are only available here. Pleasingly all cuts are in MONO. Seems strange that a modern band would do such a thing.
The music is mellow country rock with a definate late 60s Byrds feel, their earlier work is much more indie rock with jangle. By the time of this release The Velvet Crush were down to a duo of Paul Chastain and Ric Menck. Production duties were by Matthew Sweet......DIG IT!!!!
