Free Albums well worth getting #3 - Dora Flood

These guys were suggested by my pal Merz at Mars Needs Guitars who writes a fine blog, with an absolute ton of good tunes that I've mostly never heard before, which is always nice. As much as I like reading other people's views on music, there's something extra fine about being introduced to decent bands or songs you didn't know beforehand; works for me, anyhow... so for definitely not more of the same as you'll find here, get over there & say hi.

On to the music then: the band in question is Dora Flood, who have six albums and an EP, from 1995-2008 available for free download on their website, and if a plate of dreamy rock/pop with an undeniable sideorder of psychedelia (in the left-hand dish, of course) sounds like your idea of a decent blue-plate special, then imagine yourself moonstruck, in some long-lost seventies road movie, California sun & wind in your hair, stopping at a hazy, half-remembered diner... take a seat at the counter, hear the ice clinking, and just soak it all up - this is the soundtrack.
