Dancing Horses

This playlist started with “Bring on the Dancing Horses” and some other 80’s psych. I was pretty young when most of this came out and not listening to much of it. Artists like XTC, Julian Cope, and Cocteau Twins became regular listens in high school and college, but even then I didn’t really connect them to a deeper psychedelic tradition extending back to the 1960s. In the way that time seems to contract as it recedes further back, the 1980s seemed much farther removed from the 60s than they do now (to say nothing of the 2000s).

From there, the list obviously expands to include a broader mix of popular and early UK indie acts. Not sure that it perfect cohesion in its current form, but maybe with a bit more curation it will one day get there.
