Lilacs and Champagne | Sensations (Video)
Listen and watch the fever dream of Lilacs and Champagne duo Alex Hall and Emil Amos. It’s in the form of a song called “Sensations” (from a self-titled release), which feels like the musical equivalent of heat waves — those strange optics that occurs when heat changes air density and light reflection. Listening to the track, the vibe is nearly palpable, as low harmonica mixes with clicking percussion and wavering guitar pulses in this warped, psych music gem that could be the soundtrack to some long-lost Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. Lilacs and Champagne is part of the label Mexican Summer. Follow the duo at facebook. Video was edited by Amos. — David D. Robbins Jr.
