The Pussywarmers are from Ticino and have been playing warm, country tinged gitano rock n’ roll since 2009. They have recently cosmically bonded with Hungarian singer Réka Csiszér to record their latest album, I Saw Them Leaving and have shifted their sound towards more psychedelic frontiers. While their earlier material sounded like a more stoned Gogol Bordello, latest single Something You Call Love starts with a quiet reverberated guitar riff accompanied by a repeating high note, and then kicks into a sun kissed psych pop gem with tambourines, a fuzz drenched solo and a line lifted from These Boots Are Made For Walking. The smokey vibes of contemporary West Coast Psych Pop mixed with the exoticism of a certain blend of Tropicàlia and a good serving of whiskey.
It’s a midsummer’s evening in the Swiss Alps and you’re riding your white bicycle down to your lover’s lakeside bikini bonfire party. You see a submarine slowly emerging from the middle of a lake and blasting a beam across the valley but you don’t care ’cause you’re wearing 3D glasses and keep cycling towards the beach. When you get there you realize that you’re at the wrong gig, but it doesn’t matter — everyone here is your lover, everyone is wearing a bikini and we’re all dancing around a bonfire. You got it man, that beam was Something WE Call Love.
Check out Something You Call Love below and go get their album, I Saw Them Leaving, out on Wild Honey Records, here.
