Rose City Band: Earth Trip (Album of the Week)

Guitarist Ripley Johnson is quite the musical treasure. Between Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo, one would figure the dude has made his mark on the musical world. But the San Francisco native needed another outfit to get out some mellow, psychedelic vibes about his current home base of Portland. And that's exactly what Rose City Band is all about. 

Earth Trip is a gem from start to finish. I wish it were longer but the eight tracks that are on it are quite amazing. It's a perfect summer record.

Here is one of my favorite tracks, a perfect primer for the feel of the album...
