Feel-good psych rock from somewhere in the United States – this song would feel right at home in a 70s coming-of-age hallucinogenic haze… or something starring Joaquin Phoenix (!!), but the term “throwback” just doesn’t do “Calluna Vulgaris” justice.

It’s only their third single release yet the Denver-based band sound like they’ve been doing this for years.

This track has a distinctly 60s/70s sound, as does the more Beatles-sounding “Behind Your Man” – and their online following seems to be in its early days, in the low ’00s rather than ‘000s, one can only feel, and hope!, that there’s much more to come from Plum…

Here’s the track:


Plum – Calluna Vulgaris

Listen and then go watch Inherent Vice.
