The Downers-Shake the Dead and Let the Downers Die 

Sickboy Records

Utah's five-man The Downers play the psychedelic pop of Big Star and do it very well. This five-song sampler will trance you out like a Quaalude from 1974. It's good' Paul Burke's vocals are mesmerizing.
 
The Downers are not a throwback, but rather the group transports its genre into the future. "Shake the Dead and Let The Downers Die" is a quality album with feeling, pumping new blood into the ancient, stoned vibe' another flicker in the strobe. I dug it the most.
