The Independent Culture

The second album by the "lost" Detroit-Mexican spirit of late-1960s psychedelic folk-pop Sixto Rodriguez. Don't expect the rush of Cold Fact, but do expect to be engaged in a way that makes yer fink.

A bit. In a period stylee. Reality was recorded in London in 1971, starred guitarist Chris Spedding, and is fraught with ennui. Words like "sadly" and "beautiful" spring to mind, even as another beshriving string arrangement blows across the sound field like yesterday's news.

Pick of the album: 'Sandrevan Lullaby: Lifestyles': sad, lonely, poetic etc
