okay I've been listening to Clinging to a Dream a lot in the last month and I actually think it's about as good as the band's first three albums (counting The Garden, of course). it's probably the strangest Silver Apples album there is. Simeon is such a weirdo.

Thanks for the link.Coxe continues to perform and tour as Silver Apples. He released a new album in 2016, and a release for Record Store Day on 13 April is due next month. Despite a lifetime of turbulence and rotten luck, he insists the good times far outweigh the bad. Even 50 years on from the moment that sent his career into the wilderness for nearly two decades, he refuses to have any regrets. “No,” he says. “Not one.”

RSD single is pretty wild...not sure how I feel about the (intentionally?) glitched out ending but the jam section is pretty cool. definitely feels like vintage Silver Apples. remix is pretty nice too.
