The Seeds

In 1966 Los Angeles-based band, The Seeds, released their debut eponymous album. Before I get too far into this I would like to start by asking how anyone could not like a band who’s lead singer’s name is Sky Saxon. That’s about as badass as it gets. I digress. Along with a sweet name, Saxon can sing, and the rest of the members of The Seeds can rock. Garage rock, to be exact. The album starts out strong with “Can’t Seem To Make You Mine,” which to me, has one of the best choruses I have heard. The bands’ debut has a unique sound that is still rooted deep within 1960s rock and roll, but its most interesting aspect is that as it progresses you may get flickers of punk. The Seeds are said to be one of the pioneering bands of the punk rock genre, which gives them an awesome identity and sets them far apart from other bands of this time period.
