Citrus Groove - Sunswayed ep (1993, Honeychain)

Citrus Groove were a California four-piece who caught the tail end of the "Madchester" scene without a moment to spare. To my relief, their thing was more Soup Dragons than Happy Mondays. The two tracks that bookend Sunswayed are welcome exceptions to this rule, with "Angel" impressing me as the long lost cousin to The Only Ones "Another Girl, Another Planet." The closer "Hit the Ground" (also released as a 7" on Honeychain), flows down the same slipstream as Ride's headier, psychedelic moments, explored on that band's 1994 Carnival of Light album. You can read more about Citrus Groove here.
