Starflyer 59 - Americana (1997)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Starflyer 59 - Gold (1995)

Excellent third LP from the great Starflyer 59. Heavy, sugary alt rock, blissed-out shoegaze, and a bit of Mazzy Star-esque, opiated -- yes -- Americana. As far as I'm concerned, Americana is every bit as great as their first two records.

Track listing:
1. The Voyager
2. The Hearttaker
3. Harmony
4. All You Want Are the Things I Need
5. You Think You're Radical
6. The Translator
7. You Don't Miss Me
8. The Boulevard
9. Help Me When You're Gone
10. Everyone But Me
