The See See
Up The Hill

Article written by Ged M - Jul 31, 2007

Following the disintegration of great psych-folk hopefuls The Eighteenth Day of May, it’s good to see Richard Olsen recording with his new band The See See. Richard O is joined by Kevin Peyok of The Waxwings, Pete Greenwood and ex-Soledad Brother Ben Swank. This five track demo, produced by Blue States' Andy Dragazis, shows that the See See have kept faith with the same sounds that influenced TEDoM: a mixture of West Coast rock with folky overtones and dreamy psychedelia. The harmony-laden ‘Up The Hill’ starts with a 60s jangle reminiscent of the Byrds or Charlatans and then heads off on a hazy psychedelic journey for the next five minutes. ‘All Too Tired’ shows off Swank’s talents for managing some choppy rhythms and ‘Citadel Shuffle’ is almost Byrdsian country rock. In contrast to the other tracks, ‘Late Morning Light’ is an elegantly wasted and lonesome comedown song. It’s very well played and produced and, dripping with potential, gives me the same shiver as when I first heard the ‘May first play. They could be very big; go hear them, go see see them.
