Fruits de Mer Records released a new single by The Chemistry Set as one of their year end releases. Side one is the four minute “Firefly,” a strong trippy psych song that takes you on a mind journey through arabesque landscapes, using minor chords and heavy guitar to complete the 60s vibe. Side two is another four minute track, “Sail Away.” The mood is different with The Chemistry Set taking us on a mesmerizing hypnotic journey past tangerine trees and marshmallow skies. They even throw in lyrical references to Jimi Hendrix, the Jefferson Airplane, et. al. Issued on either black or orange vinyl, this single also comes with a CD of two remixes of their Moody Blues cover “Legend of a Mind” by Astralasia’s Marc Swordfish. And if you act fast, you can still grab a copy of your own as these FdM releases are limited runs and tend to sell out.
