The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Blend a touch of "Strawberry Fields" -era folky-psych-pop with a heavy edge, an epic storytelling sensibility, and a sweet vocal delivery, and you end up with the essence of the one man band Apothecary Hymns (Aka Alex Stimmel). Think Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band channeling Led Zeppelin. According to Locust Music, which just released Apothecary Hymns' debut, 'Trowel and Era,' "Stimmel has made a collection with one foot in kaleidoscopic coastal loner psych that floats on a musical bed of whimsical levity and another foot rooted firmly in the grand ethos of east village troubadours of the mid 60s."
