MP3 - "It's a Sin to Go Away" by We All Together, a song from the Nuggets II box set that I always skipped over but rediscovered thanks to the miracle of the iPod shuffle function. These one-(not-really-a)-hit-wonders from Peru came up with this psychedelic pop gem featuring overbearing organ, smooth harmonies, a fuzzed-out bass that sounds like a primitive synth meandering about in the background, and an inexplicably funky backbeat that some enterprising producer needs to sample if they haven't already. It somehow works, despite the fact that it's really several different songs slapped together into one piece.
