THE BEVIS FROND: “Little Eden” limited blue 2LP

For the uninitiated, The Bevis Frond is essentially a band name for singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/but mostly guitarist Nick Saloman. This is maybe his 24th or 25th album and he has been a remarkably consistent purveyor of astonishing guitar-fulled psychedelic rock interspersed with genuinely lovely ballads.

“Little Eden” glows with vintage McCartney-esque couplets before rolling out a chiming signature riff on ‘As I Lay Down To Die’ and adopting Jimi-like phrasing on ‘And Away We Go’.

A psychedelically-hewn panoramic take on brutalism Britain punctuated with pure pop melodies and beautifully-observed English melancholy.

This is an album that rekindles your love of music – from the harmonies that are oh-so Teenage Fanclub and Lemonheads, to the grunge and awe of Dinosaur Jr.
There’s perspective and retrospective tale-spinning where we wait “for the wonderful world to come” (‘Start Burning’), an imaginary future soundtracked by the spirit of Arthur Lee, brought into focus with witty wordplay on songs that are littered with spine tingling guitar breaks.
A brand new album from national treasures The Bevis Frond.
