Timbuk 3 ‎– Easy (12″)

Not got much Timbuk 3, this was one I ripped and had another few listens. Sublime , country tinged dream pop from the Austin duo.  From their second album “Eden Valley,” it’s sung by Barbara K. MacDonald. A bit of a forgotten classic.

Two short B-sides include the more Americana sounding, “This Town Cries” where Pat MacDonald duets. For fans of R.E.M.

The last track is a beefed up, re-recorded version of the last track from their debut album, “I Love You In The Strangest Way”. Adding drums and a funky bass.

One thought on “Timbuk 3 ‎– Easy (12″)”

  1. The antithesis of Future’s So Bright. But to have created an earworm like that, you need writing skills. Such a shame this didn’t get the exposure it deserved. It’s got such a chilled-out vibe, and the similar earworm possibility, just never had the chance.
