Linda Perhacs  - "Parallelograms"

I am crazy about Linda Perhacs.   She recorded this album to very quiet reception in 1970, but has since become a cult hero, with her swirling harmonies, heavenly guitar chords, and soaring feminine spirits inspiring so many folk-based musicians of today like Devendra Banhart.  She soon plunged into obscurity, only to be recognized in retrospect by vinyl collectors and heavily disseminated by sites like Youtube that gave her music a second life.

I believe this was a fan-made video, but it captures the lazy, sun-drenched, pastel summer spirit of Linda Perhac's music.  The whole album is like a David Hamilton photo set to music.
