Bipolaroid - E(i)ther Or (2008)

When original Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett passed away a few years back, his spirit never left this plane. Instead, it set up shop in the body of a man from New Orleans named Ben Glover and started this band. Ben's singing and playing, but good old Syd is the one holding the strings. This record has the musical togetherness of "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," but still has times when it goes off its hinges in the style of "The Madcap Laughs" or "Barrett." My favorite track on the album has got to be "Jane Jubilee." In the mood for something new that reminds you a bit of the old? Look no further.

For fans of: Pink Floyd (the first two records), The Kinks, The Velvet Underground
