Lives Of Angels ‎– "Elevator To Eden" (Color Tapes ‎– Color 1) 1983


Interesting psych-pop electronica from a duo(featuring Gerry O'Connell of Modern Arrt) called Lives of Angels, on the Color Tapes label. Sort of a budget sub-Cherry Red Pillows and Prayers era kind of label; more associated with the proto-indie psych of a pre-Sun Dial Gary Ramon than this stuff. Very charming twee melodies floating over a mechanical drum machine rhythm, with jangly guitars. The bands on this label, like Syd Barrett, Velvet Underground,Nuggets, and Rubble; and what’s wrong with that? This being the first release on said label, that changed its name to Color Disc when it released 'proper' records. They so wanted to be either Felt or on Cherry red for real did this lot.  

Track Listing:

A1 Imperial Motors
A2 Pavillion
A3 Ascension
A4 Heartland
