FZ001: Mushroom, “Really Don’t Mind If You Sit This One Out”

“Here’s a listen to the first year and half of Mushroom’s career, including 2 songs from their first gig ever. Since those days, during the past 8 years, they’ve taken so many paths – from funky jazz to soundtracks to acid folk – but in retrospect it’s those first few years that are the most visceral and vibrant. Take off your face and recover from the trip you’ve been on – you know you’ve got it, if it makes you feel good” – Calvin Tennett, WBAI Radio
