Tadpoles :: Feel Like a Freak (A Historical Sideshow of Missing Links)

Still more tasty activity in the Bakery Records camp…and a reason to wave your flag if you do indeed feel like a freak.
A companion piece to the 2001 best-of retrospective,”Use With Headphones Late At Night,” this compilation features 10 previously unreleased recordings and mixes detailing the more expansive aspects of the distinctive neo-psychedelic space-rock of the Tadpoles.
Bakery Records is making this a free download until the official release date of Sept. 6. So, get some. More info on the release and notes on each track are available at their BandCamp locale.
It goes without saying, and I do say it a lot, that Tadpoles are one of my all out favorite outfits, so this is a real treat. I didn’t cop Sunrise Ocean Bender for nothing…
If you don’t know them, here’s a chance to get a slice of ‘pole pie for nothing and get to know them. These may be alternate takes and mixes, but there is no mistaking who they came from, and where they were aiming. There’s been a flurry of activity over at Bakery, especially with Todd Parker & the Witches’ Greetings from the Star Chamber recently, some psychedelic ukulele and return visits like this with the formidable Tapdoles in various forms.
Let’s hope it keeps coming.
