Released: 17th June 2012
Label: Tree Machine Records
It seems that after what has been a rough summer, things may be picking for Tree Machine Records. They have gained access to a studio which will help allow artists to properly record their material instead of their former basement recordings, there’s a second album on the way from anonymous singer-songwriter Hypocrite In A Hippy Crypt, and they have also busted out these demos from The Wailin’ Smithers.
Ocean Song is one of the tracks from this collection of demos, and as well as having quite possibly the greatest band name to exist, the song is pretty good too. It’s full of loud, brash guitar riffs that either produce some explosive moments or some sweet, melodic parts, and with vocals that have a special beach boys vibe about them.
It’s a great surf-rock hit from The Wailin’ Smithers, and I cannot wait to hear how they enhance it with this new access to a proper recording studio. Tree Machine Records will certainly be experiencing some growth and added reputation if they manage to release stellar albums from these guys, and Hypocrite In A Hippy Crypt too.
