Vancouver’s Stevie Moonboots is on a freak-out mission, via his project The Orange Kyte. It’s an umbrella of shifting collaborators from the Canadian psych scene, which since the start of this year, has released a single a month, this being the latest offering.
Orange sunshine fuzz guitars and lysergic hammond organs compliment his Dylan-esque rasp, falling on the Gram Parsons side of psychedelia (later adopted by 80s bands like ‘Green on Red’ and ‘The Rain Parade’), rather than the mind melting approach of say ‘Ultimate Spinach’.
But the overall result is a fine one, and the ever-changing line-up promises more nuggets to come. This month also sees Stevie take the project into live terrain with some festival appearances.
