One thought on “New Dean Wareham / Britta Phillips split 7″ single”

  1. I’ve always considered Dean and Britta to be like the artistic and secretive aunt and uncle my family only whispered about in the most hushed of conversations. Some said they were counter intelligence spies, others said that they’d made their money through the development of the rheostat that allowed car’s intermittent wipers to function. But for me it was all a moot point, I thought they were wonderful and enchanting, that their relentlessly travelings were magical, and since we connected on an elemental level, postcards and cassette tapes would arrive at my door from scattered corners of the globe … filled with intriguing wonders, until one day in 1969, they were never heard from again.

    Dean and Britta now fill that void for me, and in this dreamy musical postcard, where Dean covers the Robyn Hitchock song “Love”, and Britta delivers an intoxicated version of the Beach Boys’ “Fallin’ In Love” that will lay you out as it caresses your soul, a hypnotic smile slides across my face. Sure you can download this bit of wanderlust, but finding the coloured vinyl delivered to your front door like some long lost postcard, will set your heart to racing, and swim through your head like half forgotten memories of bygone days.

    So, while I certainly miss my aunt and uncle, Dean and Britta are still traveling the globe, and just when I expect it least, as in days long gone, in rolls a musical postcard … and when they’re in town, I still get to have an enchanted conversation.
