Wimple Winch was a mostly-unknown British group back in the ’60s. They were considered just another “Merseybeat” band who wanted to ride on the Beatles’ coattails. Originally calling themselves Just Four Men, they didn’t start gaining their cult following until they changed up their sound a bit and started calling themselves Wimple Winch. “Save My Soul” was probably their biggest “hit,” featuring straightforward ’60s bubblegum guitar pop, while “Lollipop Minds” was on the much weirder side. A summery pop song that strongly evoked Brian Wilson‘s harmonies, and could fit in easily with today’s Ariel Pink/bedroom lo-fi pop scene.

Great new video from Ariel Pink’s upcoming pom pom record, out soon on 4AD. The song is a reflection on the world we now live
