The Ballantynes - Misery 7" - Red Vinyl (/150)
This, for me, was kind of a bonus record when I ordered the La-Ti-Da pack of five 7"s so I could get the limited versions of the Tranzmitors & Needles//Pins records. I had never heard of this band before, so I went in not really expecting anything. Pretty darn impressed when all is said and done.
The Ballantynes play a total 60s soul throwback. Complete with female backing vocals and the sort of swagger you haven't seen in music for a few decades. This is a band I'm going to keep an eye one and I already found an online shop that was still carrying their out of print first 7", so that's been ordered as well.
