Shpongle – Museum of Consciousness

Shpongle – Museum of Consciousness

Oh fuck, that is not the cover. Oh Christ, this is going to get us pulled over. I honestly do not know what I expected as that multi-faced deity has graced almost every cover from UK psybient duo Shpongle. Oh, psybient? Its nothing. Just a blend of atmospheric psychedelic electronic...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Strap Penance

Tin Ear Tuesday – Strap Penance from pinpointmusic on 8tracks Radio. So, a lot of these TETs I just do to fucking do. Because I’m going through some dark moon phase or I need to get my ass to the gym or I just don’t give two flying fucks about...

Dealer’s Choice – The Rebel Light / We Are Temporary / Surf Curse

Dealer’s Choice – The Rebel Light / We Are Temporary / Surf Curse

Sometimes I get scared trying to imagine time periods. It makes me feel impossibly small and reminds me of my own spec compared to the incomprehensible span of time. Trying to imagine the expanse of the Cambrian period is currently puzzling. I am drawn to trying to picture life on...

Watch Tree Get Creepy with “Demons”

Watch Tree Get Creepy with “Demons”

I don’t know who Tree is but I think that he’s from Santa Cruz. His real name might be Nick. He may or may not be part of a California artists collective from which his moniker is derived (think A$AP or Ramone). What I do know is that he makes...

Tape Wyrm XLIX: The Death of Psych

Tape Wyrm XLIX: The Death of Psych

I am not even pretending that I have a healthy relationship with proto-metal. This is my fourth article on the style and, for all intents and purposes, I never seem to run out of material. In fact, each article sort of starts with the spillover from the last. The previous...

Lemuria – The Distance Is So Big

Lemuria – The Distance Is So Big

I keep waiting for The Distance Is So Big to piss me off with its boy/girl sing song, mid tempo specter and genteel odes to Hawaii and dancers and that dude who made those glass ceiling flowers for the Bellagio but it hasn’t. It won’t. As close as its incessant...

Locrian – Return to Annihilation

Locrian – Return to Annihilation

The last time I invested myself in the post-apocalyptic night terror texture of Locrian was back when the band was crying, foul from a frozen stream of Ballardian death homilies and as glad as I was to speak to the deep brimmings of unnamable fear The Crystal World bled from...

T. Hardy Morris and Patterson Hood to play dates in Los Angeles

Something’s in the water, right? Forgive the old-timey platitude but it seems fitting when talking about the city of Athens, GA who has been turning out some of our countries best singer songwriters since around the time you had to handcrank your engine. For the next few days we here...

Dealer’s Choice – The Aquadolls / Mechanimal / S U R F I N G

It would appear that the obsessive heat has finally got to the men of our office. Charles hasn’t worn pants for days (“WORST KIND OF NAKED, FUCKERS! EAT ME!” he like to scream at the interns). The Kap’n’s taken to filling a mansiere with Motel 6 ice chips (a preference...
