The Rotten Mango “In Love With the Afternoon”

As far as garage-pop psychedelia goes, there’s not much out there that is touching the Syd Barrett levels of lysergic insanity the way The Rotten Mangos are. This tight little two-piece from Texas, infuse their paisley lollipop with a raw earnestness that elevates it above the bland pastiche of many retro rock in the same vein.

If this was 20 years ago, I could easily see them slip into the midst of the Elephant 6 collective. Being so far removed from that, I would call a great anomaly that deserve all the sunshine they collect.
