Friday Song: Kula Shaker

I discovered this UK psychedelic-Eastern power-pop band during my first visit to Amsterdam. “Discovered” might be the wrong word — “exposed” makes more sense. Europeans are so culturally connected that if a band becomes popular in one country, they’re sure to follow suit in others. I heard this song, “Tattva,” for the first time in Dutch Flowers, while enjoying the blue sky, brown canal and purple haze; soon enough, Kula Shaker was all over the Euro-MTV and stereos. This is my favorite track from “K,” their 1996 debut disc and reflects the Oasis-spirit of English rock from the more optimistic 90’s. Savor the Summer.
