Band: THE VIOLET MINDFIELD
Who: A Garage/Surf/Psych/Bedroom/Acid folk/Lo-fi/among other things/rock band
from the Inland Empire of Southern California. The group strives to project in their music
the vibration of love and light, like a companion through the shadows, to all the hearts
and minds venturing to enter their sonic abode.

Pick: STRANGER IN THE MIRROR – new single
Score: You don’t need a time machine to catapult yourself back to the swinging 60s
if you have The Violet Mind right here, right now. Sparkling guitars, psychedelic colors, pop-ular tunefulness, good vibrations harmonies, jingle-jangle Mr. Tambourine resonance, and a strange girl story is what you want to hear when the darkness sets in and you just want to relax and dream your sorrows away. All you really want to do is feel a whole lot better.
How could it be
She only ever sees
The stranger in the mirror…
