Wayne Coyne must be up to something...a recruitment program or a class at an OK community college perhaps. How else does one explain the hyper-diverse set of psychedelic pop music beaming out of the dust bowl these past few years? Yes, Flaming Lips started it long ago. But a new batch of wannabes and disciples - students primed to emulate the ways of the master - have continued the tradition of drugged out, Okie optimism over the years. Starlight Mints and Stardeath and White Dwarves come to mind. But it's the brew of percolating pop music Colourmusic are partitioning that's got us excited about the future of this tradition. And well, we're guessing we're not the only ones.

A carefully crafted collection of distinctive songwriting, gooey group harmonies, and mind-mending melodies, Colourmusic's oddly titled debut f, monday, orange, february, venus, lunatic, 1 or 13, is a vivid piece of work that detonates in any set of headphones. This is one blissful batch indeed...thank founding members Nick Turner and Ryan Hendrix for that. And hiding somewhere amongst the excessive heaps of energy lurks a musical concept based on Newton's color theory. We'll let you do research on what exactly that is. After all, we're a little busy listening to the record. - David Pitz
