We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic is rife with everything under the sun. For instance, one of my favorite tracks from the album, also the title track, has a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drive to it, but also garage rock reminiscent of The Sonics and The Animals. Other highlights include the piano blues of the opener "Into The Darkness" which includes some random Sgt. Pepper horns, alternating between some pleasantly weepy Belle and Sebastian, then Mick Jagger vocals. Following that, "No Destruction" grooves like Bob Dylan and Lou Reed had a shy son. Then there's the first single "Shuggie" which has a 70's glam vibe with some schizophrenic frequent time changes, some random soul and interesting breakbeats. Also, check out their Haight-Ashbury lovin' on "San Francisco" posted below.
The whole album is a neo-psychedelic/blues/lo-fi masterpiece, all within a running time befitting a vinyl LP (under 37 min). I have a feeling I'll be listening to this steadily for the next 6 months and will be perusing the record store for it once the tax return comes in. I highly recommend it.
