CASSETTE REVIEW: The Memories “Crash On My Heart” (OSR Tapes)

            This is close to a cassingle, but there are two songs per side instead of the standard one.   Overall, this is just dreamy and I want to get that out of the way right now so I don’t end using that word a hundred times in this review.

            The first song is kind of a slowed down version of Buddy Holly, while the second is instrumental and reminds me a bit more of a carousel ride.   It’s a nice mix because it borders on that rock n roll/garage sound labels like Burger Records try to promote but often end up not delivering, yet it is far enough away from it to not get lumped in with those other bands.

            Beginning Side B, the third song has more of a spoken word verse style while the chorus and overall general feel just reminds me of “Teen Angel”.   The last song is slow and brings out Flaming Lips perhaps more than anything and it just makes me feel like, as the songs go on from start to finish, that by the last they have really found their own sound.
