Sad About The Times

ARC 064 


Anthology Recordings' latest compilation curated by MIKEY YOUNG (Total Control / Eddy Current Suppression Ring) and KEITH ABRAHAMSSON (Founder / Head of A&R at Anthology Recordings) is a companion piece of sorts to Follow the Sun—a collection of '70s FM through a distinctly Australian lens assembled by the same duo. On Sad About The Times, they turn their focus to North America. These songs came in the wake of the psychedelic sixties after high-flying idealism ran its course, and singer-songwriters were ascendant. After the party, reality kicks in. You have to deal with yourself about how you deal with your friends and lovers. You can't always work it out but you can sprinkle a little sugar on your sadness with songs like these to keep you company. You can hear echoes of folk rock, soft rock, even detect some psychedelic flashbacks but the atmosphere is dominated by that human being whose voice you are hearing. He's not up on stage, he's in your mirror.
