The Sun Blindness - Like Pearly Clouds (2007, issued on CD 13-09-2008)
THE SUN BLINDNESS formed in late 2004 when singer/guitarist Tor Larsen
met guitarist Duncan Eastey. Sharing a love and appreciation of
psychedelic music and culture, they began to get together to play
together and write songs informed primarily by the droning spacerock of
1980’s underground heroes Spacemen 3 a secret enthusiasm for The Doors,
and a treasure trove of strange psychedelic compilations spanning from
the 1960’s to the 1980’s.
What resulted was ‘Like Pearly
Clouds’, an already acclaimed masterpiece of dreamy psychedelia,
druggy, droning landscapes, and Beach Boys infected harmonies...
Released on CD by Sensory Projects /Intertia.
Recorded in Melbourne, mastered by Kramer (Bongwater, and producer of
Low..), a debut that transcends time and the idea of a debut album! Seeped in thick layers of psychedelia and classic Sixties West Coast pop.
This great album was posted in Lost-In-Tyme when the the band was looking for a label to issue the album. Originally posted at 23 December 2007. Below you can find the original post

delightfully lush, druggy & dreamy neo-psychedelic affair is this
one. These guys hail from somewhere in Australia and they really have
come up with something unique here for their first album. A strange
mixture of LSD-era Beach Boys, J.K & Co, Byrds & perhaps the
softer side of Spacemen 3.... songs such as "It's Only 3am" and "
Everything Is Imminent" really have a warm, beautiful atmosphere to
them. Lots of backwards guitars, strange percussion, echoed harmonies
and a New Tweedy Bros cover. This is one of my favorite releases of the
