A good song is ‘Light of Love’ by The Pleasure Seekers, a rock group from the 60s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr60iOjuC2g
By the way, an image search for “mount st helens postcard” yields some very pleasing results: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=mount+st+helens+postcard&iax=images&ia=images
I find it odd that in the three or four reviews of this album that I’ve read, the reviewers get drawn into the mythology of “Helen, the mysterious fourth member of the band,” and don’t make the connection to Mount St. Helens, which is featured on the album cover in image and in name (everything but ‘Helen’ is whited out). And the band is made of up people from the Pacific Northwest, where Mount St. Helens is located.
A really, really excellent record is Helen’s ‘The Original Faces.’ It’s Liz Harris (AKA Grouper) and Jed Bindeman (of Portland psych band Eternal Tapestry) and Scott Simmons doing lo-fi shoegaze, and the melodies are unreal. It’s 32 minutes of perfection. https://grouper.bandcamp.com/album/the-original-faces
You can watch a livestream of a titan arum (or ‘corpse flower,’ because of its smell) at the Missouri Botanical Garden that is expected to open at some point in the next few days. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/gardens-gardening/our-garden/notable-plant-collections/titan-arum.aspx
