CATSIGNS “Smokin’ The Clouds”

CATSIGNS’ blissful version of psych-pop is infectious and sunny, without slipping into overwrought cliche. Typically drug songs can really start veering towards the later, as bands think that they’re being more clever than they are.

However, “Smokin The Clouds” is right up front with the subject matter, and decide to focus on the quality of musicianship rather than the tittering appeal of how some will react to the lyrics.

Between the woodwinds and the guitar tone, I can’t really think of another song that has come around recently that has this authentic feel of the ’60s without feeling like aped pastiche.
