The Turtles was an interesting ’60s phenomenon. Riding the folk-pop wave of the late half of the decade, the band managed to chart a few singles, including the infamous “Happy Together,” which hit #1 and “She’d Rather Be With Me,” which made it to #3. Other songs charted but none neared this level of success. By 1970 The Turtles had broken up. This collection of eight 7” records reminds of The Turtles’ history and cements its legacy as a forgotten group who, despite several charting hits, never got its full artistic due.

"Press Heavenwards" opens A New Nature with three minutes of beautifully spacious and dark atmospherics before the meat of the song even begins; this slow burn intro echoes Pink Floyd’s "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" more than anything we’ve heard heretofore from this post-punk trio.

Under the Radar is a big fan of Slow Club, so much in fact; we picked the duo to help us premiere our own live session series. It’s been a few months since the English band released their excellent third album Complete Surrender. As this new live session with Balcony TV proves, it’s going to be a long time before we’ll be able to get their songs out of our heads.

The first song post-intro on Melted Toys’ self-titled debut album, “Bummed Out,” has a good chunk of instrumental which can pretty much be considered a peppy cover of The Smiths’ “Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before.” (via Melted Toys: Melted Toys (Underwater Peoples) | Under the Radar - Music Magazine)
