Wave Pictures – Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon (2015)

The_Wave_Pictures_-_Great_Big_Flamingo_Burning_MoonIt takes a lot of patience to be a classic rock aficionado. You’re kinda stuck listening to the same 100 or so songs until newer stuff properly ages enough that you can stop saying it isn’t as good as rock was in our day.

The Wave Pictures, a semi-pro English band that hasn’t been subsumed by the London hipster scene, has the answer with a fun, clever and irreverent album that’s a bit Kinks, a bit CCR, a bit garage, and a lot Jonathan Richman.

Call it pre-aged; you don’t have to wait 30 years to enjoy it!
