Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere with The Frowning Clouds - An Interview

E a Austrália esta se tornando uma meca de psych, garagem e psicodelia, e acrescente aí toques poderosos de Mod também, assim é o The Frowning Clouds.

Psicodelia inglesa e mod este é o caminho que o Frowning Clouds percorre em suas albuns, transpirando Kinks, Monks, Who, Small Faces pra tudo que é lado, obviamente com a cara dos nossos tempos, mas se o menos desatento ouvir Whereabout o último dos caras pode certamente dizer que os caras são dos 60´s tamanha a ambientacão melódica.

Whereabout é grudento como toda boa psicodelia britânica da época áurea o era, e isso aqui neste contexto é especial delicioso, pegue-se ouvindo Propellers e sinta na pele.

O The Frowning Clouds vai certamente fazer seu dia muito mais feliz, acredite....
