The Joup Friday Album: The United States of America

usaalbumAs “The American Metaphysical Circus” begins, the atmosphere is indeed akin to that of a circus, a hodgepodge of sounds swirling along together in an audio soup. Ragtime dances play with classical marches and jazz numbers before subsiding as the electronic pulses take over and a female voice beckons you in. The mood is progressive. The ideas are many. The palette is open to an array of new sounds. Welcome to one of the most fantastic and experimental psych rock records of the 1960’s, the self-titled, sole release from The United States of America.

The Joup Friday Album: Secret Machines – Now Here Is Nowhere

secretmachines I honestly had no idea what record I was going to write about for today’s Friday Album. Over the last several months, I’ve written and reminisced about so many different albums that are “special” to me on my 35 Albums in 35 Years weekly column, and with the final home stretch of that column now on the horizon, I was at a loss. So, to remedy my situation, I just grabbed a handful of CD’s from the shelf that I haven’t listened to in a long while and started jamming them in my car while driving to and from work. Albums that I forgot all about. Albums that time forgot. Albums I should have been paying more attention to.
