Xig
Their best LP and my favorite on the label. It is oddly sequenced though, with the two weakest tracks opening up each side. "Lovechild" is a timeless and warm classic. It's also pretty bizarre to hear Vanna White's voice on "Living Ken and Barbie" which sounds like the Orchids doing an indie pop version of "Little Fluffy Clouds."
