Taking flight from British forebears such as the Who, the Hollies, and the Kinks, The Telepathic Butterflies emulate the giddy blend of wistful sentiment, earnest singing, jangly guitars, and ready refrains which forms the very essence of Sixties sensibilities. Aside from "A Passing Glance," which sets its sights on a part of the stratosphere targeted by Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive," this Canadian trio's Songs From A Second Wave isn't nearly as psychedelic as their name implies. Rather, their fine-tuned arrangements suggest a craft for composition as precise as Ray Davies's satirical observations, and the operatic aspirations of Pete Townsend.
