Solar Bears - She Was Coloured In (2010, Planet Mu)

Irish duo Solar Bears is really tickling my fancy, adding to this winter's obsession with faux 70's film scores. These guys really nail it. They warble undersea through an audio cassette beeping when its time to change the frame on the filmstrip of Saturday afternoon sci-fi television.

There is mellotron and synthesizer ambience a la Emeralds, Gorgio Moroderesque disco (reminiscent of how Umberto is cooking it up these days) and even elements of late 60's early 70's atmospheric hallucinogenic rock.

Have I heard this before or do I hear it 30 years from now? Post-future present.
