Tacoma's Mono in VCF sent me this song from their upcoming LP after learning of my newfound love for overlooked '60s band the Poppy Family. Turns out that the Poppy Family is a major influence on Mono in VCF's dreamy, "Spector put through a Moog synth" psych-pop. In fact, Poppy Family frontman Terry Jacks even helps out on the band's nearly-completed debut record, which includes a spot-on cover of the amazing "There's No Blood in Bone." The album will be finished soon, but in the meantime, we can't get enough of this one, which is a gorgeous modern take on the classic/timeless pop of Nancy & Lee, the Carpenters, Spector, and the like:
