El Goodo

El Goodo is a Welsh band that was first noticed by the Super Furry Animals, who released the group's self-titled album under their Placid Casual label. The A.V. Club wrote a few words about the album last year, while NPR picked up on El Goodo's newest effort:
"The pulsing drum beat and brawny guitar riffs in the opening bars of "Feel So Fine" kick off the album with an impressive gusto. The entire album echoes many of guitarist Lewie's favorite artists, including The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, and The Doors. Backing vocals are taken from the Beach Boys school of rock, sung in carefully orchestrated group harmony."

El Goodo brought psychedelic flashbacks of the late 60's and early 70's. I like the use of the feedback and retro sound. "Groovy, Man." Thanks, Manny.
