1/2/3/4 — #111 — Sad About The Times

Our focus on this edition is a brilliant compilation that asks you to imagine you are alone in a hot tub on a warm summer night back in the ’70s. Then a song you never heard before comes on the radio. You feel like it reaches into some place that has already been prepared in your mind. Then you never hear it again. Compiled by Mikey Young (Total Control / Eddy Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson (Founder / Head of A&R at Anthology Recordings), Sad About the Times is a set of North American 70s jammers. With a hint of (at times) West Coast jangle, these tracks traverse the border between the power pop of the times and a late-night coke jam.
