Song of the Week – Follow Me Home, The Mystery Lights


I recently discovered the self-titled album of a New York based band called The Mystery Lights. The retro psych group records for the Wick label, the rock subsidiary of soul imprint Daptone; home to Charles Bradley and the recently deceased Sharon Jones.

The description of the band on the Daptone website is enlightening:

“… the Lights’ sound has evolved into a fuzz-fueled hopped-up 21st Century take on 60s garage pebbles, and artful 70s punk, that is all their own.”

That description certainly applies to today’s SotW – “Follow Me Home.”

The band has been together since they met as teenagers in school in Salinas, California, famously the birthplace of John Steinbeck.

Enjoy… until next week.

  1. I like. Garage-y.

    Was hoping W4 guy would do something very bad to those hippies, but it didn’t happen. Oh well, you can’t have it all.
