Ted Allen - “Blurred Into”
We don’t know much about Ted Allen except that there might not actually be a Ted. The band/singer/songwriter’s bandcamp says “Ted Allen is BH + HR,” so maybe someone knows to whom those initials refer. The link says “Free Museums,” so who knows, maybe that’s their name. Regardless, these couple of tracks of dream pop are pretty psych-friendly and are worth mentioning. “Blurred Into” begins with a heavy church organ that supports the rest of the song. Add a few electronic effects and some off-key whistling and you’re all set.
The next track, “Nothing to Say,” features female vocals in addition to the doped-out dude singer’s vocals. The trancey effect of the reverb and repetitive guitar lick can really zone you out.
“Videophone” has a distorted shoegaze thing going on, and we’re down with it.
