Happy New Year everyone! Enjoy this rad cover of ‘I Am The Walrus’ from the Flaming Lips.
exposing unsigned or lesser known bands to the masses…or to the three people that actually read this. today’s band:
the high dials
local band to: montreal canada
etc: alex from the black angels tipped me off to this band about five years ago. i’ve liked em ever since. the song ‘the holy ground’ made me a believer.
the band started out playing a brand of pop music strongly influenced by 1960s british mod styles, but their sound evolved to become a form of power pop, more influenced by psychedelic music. they released two albums on rainbow quartz records, a new devotion (2003) and war of the wakening phantoms (2005), before releasing their most recent record, moon country (2008) independently. they have toured with fellow neo-psychedelia band the brian jonestown massacre. notably, rod argent, keyboardist of the zombies performed on their song “picture of a fading man” in 2006. in 2007, their song “the holy ground” was featured in a rogers television ad. professed fans of the high dials include steven van zandt and andrew loog oldham. last.fm
