Léonie - En Alabama

Apparently this is how crazy things can get when J.C. Vannier writes a tune instead of just arranging one. Featuring (maybe?) the scintillating return of that sound we're thinking is strummed piano strings, as heard previously in this.

It just occurred to me that the bassline on the intro is a descendant of this.

Get ready for a refreshing flood of only the best neurotransmitters at the 0:35 mark.

Orbidöig - Nocturnal Operations

If this is midsummer, it must be time for hymns.

Perhaps this song inspired a mania for churchbells which reached its apotheosis in this.

The Mighty Clouds Of Joy - Time (extended)

So I'm kicking back on Fire Island a few weeks ago and celebrating the birth of disco (sort of) with this mix from forty summers ago... ...and I'm liking this song "Time" and I think, "Hey, is this the Mighty Clouds Of Joy? I might already have this album, if it's the same album with that life-changer from five summers ago."  And lo.

So here are some more Clouds for your delectation. Extended mix à la Moulton by yours truly. Enjoy the high-level artistry of the guitar player on the instrumental.

Regarding that bassline: Disco Inferno sounds like this, and this in turn sounds like The Four Tops, "I Can't Help Myself."
