Teaspoon of Time
 
Teaspoon of Time Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: Kevin Robertson
 
 
Quantity:
 

Hailing from Aberdeen, Scotland Kevin Robertson is a singer songwriter who specializes in jangle and psych pop.  He’s also 1/5 of The Vapour Trails. Kevin's influences include 60's pop, rock and psych, 80's jangle and 90's Brit pop  After the success of last year’s “Sundown's End” album brought The Vapour Trails frontman's solo work into the public consciousness, Kevin returns with more of the same sumptuous 60’s-inflected jangle pop/psyche rock.  Always melodic, always with jangly riffs aplenty, “Teaspoon of Time” finds Kevin developing his songwriting craft even further, accompanied by a whole host of musicians that frequent the better and most indiest parts of Bandcamp!  “Features more of the terrific chiming and melodic pop tunes that Robertson is known for.  Robertson blends Beach Boys harmonies with Byrds-inspired guitar riffs.  Standout tracks include ‘Misty Dew Soaked Mountains,’ ‘If You’re Free,’ ‘Tough Times,’ ‘Rather Hide,’ ‘Magnify The Sun’ and ‘Don’t You Dwell.’  - Eric Sorensen  “This is as jangle-loaded as any of his full band efforts but here the songs are crafted with a more delicate emphasis and serene execution. ‘Tough Times (Feel Like That)’ opens things with a lonely electric 12 string riff that sounds very middle ages folk-music before breaking out into familiar Byrds/CS&N territory. ‘Trippin’ Back’ is definitely the single, leaning on that 80’s folk rock revival sound and adding some funky keyboard lines. There are a few interesting excursions too, like the ‘Sgt. Pepper’-meets-Moody Blues atmosphere all over ‘Psychedelic Wedding Song’ or the jazzy lead guitar extemporizations adding to the basic folk rock formula on ‘Forty-Five Losing Street.’  And there’s a lot here that we’ve just come to love from this performer, like the Teenage Fanclub gene buried in ‘Rather Hide’ or the nice, easy-going jangle guitar that defines ‘Sleepy Island Sounds’ and ‘Magnify the Sun’ or the spot-on late 60’s song structures and sounds of ‘Don’t You Dwell’ and ‘Misty Dew Soaked Mountains.’  Robertson is seemingly unstoppable, reliably turning out amazing 60’s-influenced tunes. Teaspoon of Time’ will have you thinking the ‘be-in’ never ended.” – PopRockRecord.com  GREAT!!
