Summertime: Gorky's Zygotic Mynci Edition

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci: This Summer's Been Good from the Start

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci: Face Like Summer


Gorky's Zygotic Mynci: How I Long


Here are three summer-themed songs from one of the goofiest-named bands ever. Formed in the early '90s, Welsh group Gorky's Zygotic Mynci often wore their '60s influences on their collective sleeves. My favorite of these three tracks, "This Summer's Been Good from the Start", sounds for all the world like an Incredible String Band song stripped of it's psychedelic pretensions.

All three songs reflect the more pastoral sound the band favored later in its career (they formally broke up in 2006), and it suited them well. This is music for getting back to the garden on a sunny afternoon.
