They’re ba-ack! Green Seagull’s second full length album, Cloud Cover, hit the streets on July 31, 2020. We got a teaser for the album with the release of their single “Simeon Brown” b/w “Belladonna” over a year ago. Now everyone can experience Green Seagull in their full glory. Their love of 60s pop psych, baroque psych, and 12-string jangle guitar is now in full swing. And perhaps the best song on the disc is “This Wheel,” a slowly burning heavy song with very cool trippy organ. Throughout the album are the obvious Byrds influences, as well as The Beatles, plus 70s UK acts like Brinsley Schwartz and Danny Kirwan-era Fleetwood Mac. I even noted a bit of the Hollies influence on the trippy and bluesy tune “Dream You’re Living.” The album closes with the two songs from their single, which provide a wonderful capstone to a marvelous album of neo-psych that is sure to please fans of pop psych drenched in trippy organ riffs. So if you have yet to experience Green Seagull, now is your opportunity to immerse yourself in their musical world, but don’t tarry long, Cloud Cover is a limited pressing.
