continuing the unabashed fandom of Colossal Yes
Colossal Yes - Charlemagne's Big Thaw (listen) I love this very much, even more the second time.
Colossal Yes - Acapulco Roughs (listen) This earlier record is a little lighter in its step, but still feels revelatory. They are impossibly Squeeze, The Band, Paul McCartney, Ben Folds, I dunno, Style Council, maybe? They have a dash of everything from every pop band I love with the things I don't love neatly excised from the mix.
Here is a live video for "The Honeymooner Creeps"
