Birth Of Joy - Get Well Album Review
Dutch psych rockers Birth Of Joy turn back the clock to 1971.
If Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland (the dark, Tim Burton film version) were a band, it would sound like Birth Of Joy.
Or at least that’s the kind of experience we had with this tour de force of clamouring, intoxicating psych. On the one hand, Get Well is very 60s (think Nuggets or The Electric Prunes). The retro horror-show organ and sumptuous prog rock layers of tracks like Carabiner place you firmly outside any time pre-1971.
