Artist: INSTANT ORANGE
Title: Instant Orange
Format: Double LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $56.00
"Besides home to the Hells Angels, farmers and citrus grooves, San Bernardino, California was also where Instant Orange lived and released their first single in 1968. The band forged ahead and released another single (1973), album (1973) and two 10" EPs (1974 & 1975). All of their releases were small pressings of 100 copies and to this day, Instant Orange remains virtually unknown. Their homemade sound is a refreshing reflection of their West Coast folk-rock influences that were so prevalent during the 60s and early 70s. All original tracks with inspiration from bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, Sandy Bull and others. Songs full of electric and acoustic guitars with nice doses of McGuinnesque 12-string riffing as well as many unsuspecting surprises (antiquated electronic effects, rambling rural explorations, long jams, experimental moves, stoner banter and other weirdness between songs, caveman fuzz, etc). A solid listen with enough original imagination to keep it interesting without the band creating an identity crisis by trying too hard to be something else than themselves. Hear it all on this limited double album, but grab it before it becomes elusive like some of San Bernardinos motorcycle riding inhabitants. 450 numbered/glossy heavy gatefold sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert." - Shadoks.
