Recommended Song: The Halfways – I Don’t Mind

The Halfways

The Halfways

I’ll  jealously be cursing out each and every one of my social feeds over the coming weeks. This is a direct result of me not flying to SXSW. There’ll be no Shiner in my future. No BBQ. No margaritas. No food trucks. No early morning and late nights of continuous revery & music. I’m content with this though, because Austin can come to me through the music of The Halfways.

The Halfways play an easy brand of psychedelic-space-pop that flirts on the edge of jam. Languid lyrics and dripped-out melodies ease your mind into the warmth of a day drunk Texas afternoon. Let bright guitars sunshine your face as you wonder to the next adventure, wherever your latitude may be.

New Music: kandodo – july 28th (edit)

kandodo

If you’re willing, kandodo can take you on quite the journey.

Jump on a kayak and leisurely paddle towards a sunset. Get in a hammock and sway with the breeze. Put on kandodo and get lost in a dream. kandodo is Simon Price, most known for his work with UK psychedelic rock band The Heads; And as kandodo Price takes psych to a droney zen state that’s a spiritual trip past rolling cabanas and boarded up shacks.

k20, kandodo’s latest album, is available via Thrill Jockey Records.

New Video: King Tuff – Sun Medallion

King Tuff

Good times Rock & Roll = King Tuff.

Watch King Tuff rock about in the woods in their new psychedelic video for “Sun Medallion”. A song this goddamn catchy deserves a video, and the visual complements the auditory to perfection here. King Tuff will be playing The Sinclair on 10/1 with Wavves and Jacuzzi Boys – which is a show you’re highly encouraged to buy me a ‘Gansett at.

New Music: Yamantaka // Sonic Titan – One

YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN

YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN

YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN’s latest track “One” begins with a traditional Iroquois song that quickly morphs into a layered mosaic from across the globe – something that’s become a trademark of theirs, as they describe below.

a psychedelic noh-wave opera group fusing noise, metal, pop and folk music into a multidisciplinary hyper-orientalist cesspool of ‘eastern’ culture in giant monochrome paper sets.

Their sophomore LP, UZU, will be released via Paper Bag Records on October 29th.
