The Cairo Gang - "Take Your Time"
When I first listened to Tiny Rebels from Bonnie "Prince" Billy backing band (BPBBB?) The Cairo Gang, I had to do a google search on "Take Your Time" because I was convinced this little slice of trippy psych-folk was a cover from an obscure seventies-era Haight-Ashbury act. Nope. The track below is an original but you'd be forgiven for thinking that the "time" The Cairo Gang is taking comes from the past. Ultimately the songs on Tiny Rebels suggest what you'd get if you put Fifth Dimension and Sweetheart of the Rodeo in a blender. This musical smoothie's got something a little stronger than echinacea mixed in. Tiny Rebels comes out July 23rd on Empty Cellar.
