Witch Cults of the Radio Age

Investigate witch cults of the radio age mini ep is a psyched collaboration between Birmingham shroom poppers Broadcast & Julian House aka Focus Group, long time friend of the band and renowned artwork designer.

This mini album of 23 tracks is a fungi mixture of vintage ghost sounds, witch spells, cult folk & mysterious sampledelic instrumentation. Each song photographs a different landscape in a world where fairgrounds are placed in huge caves and hosted by noisy covens... excellently crafted cinematic sounds.

Investigate witch cults of the radio age is a warm and dark touch of experimental sounding psychedelia... refreshing, dreamy & wonderful music you can get here.

Fall to the spell of these sounds & be kind...

A principios de este año los Animal Collective sorprendieron a todos con el "Merriweather Post Pavillion", un album lleno de alquimia psicodélica, sonidos tribales, pop 60tero (a la Pet Sounds), vocales melosas e instrumentalización orgánicomputarizada. Una entrega que para mi gusto sólo pudo ser opacada, instrumental y conceptualmente, por la ácida psicodelia del "Embryonic" de los Flaming Lips.

Sin embargo y quizas en respuesta a la surreal genialidad de Wayne Coyne, deciden cerrar el año con "Fall Be Kind EP". Una entrega de 5 tracks que vuelve a sorprenderme por la capacidad que estos tres psiconautas tienen para mezclar sonidos, frecuencias y samples tan diferentes... 27 minutos de psilocibe placer.

Quizas estos 5 nuevos "trip reports" son un flashback del "Merriweather Post Pavillion", finalmente tienen los mismos colores, pero para mi son un recordatorio de que debajo de cualquier caca hay una familia de Kaleidoscopios musicales que nos guían hacia una renovación de frecuencias y texturas... y eso es justamente lo que hace a Animal Collective una banda tan especial y excitante.

Fall to the spell of these sounds & be kind...

The Garden of the Trees

The Trees was an English folk rock band that, unlike other folk contemporaries, had a heavier psychedelic edge. The Tress musical alchemy consisted on mixing folk songs, that sounded like they had existed for hundreds of years, with psychedelic passages of fuzzed guitar solos.

Traditional & electric sounds blended together into the cauldron of pure forest psychedelia to create a potion of beautiful psychedelic mellowness.

Trees - Streets of Derry

Trees - Nothing Special

The Trees produced two studio albums, The Garden of Jane Delawney and On The Shore.

The Phenomenal Handclap Band

New York’s recent talent, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, is a insanely groovy band unit of 8 musical artists coordinated to perform a Weird-Ass Fun Mix of 70's Disco Dance Pop, 60's Psych Rock and Spacy Retro Funk.

"The collective started when Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand, two New York underground club DJs, became restless with the concept of playing other people's music. Both had also been involved in the thriving nightlife scene, and had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of esoteric music ranging from Brazilian soul to vintage psych-rock, so becoming producers seemed to be the next logical step." (via The Phenomenal Hand Clap My Space)

The Phenomenal Hand Clap self titled album is a collection of great Psych Spacy Disco tunes... from its epic overture ‘The Journey To Serra Da Estrela’ to the trippy psychedelic pop vocal sounds of ‘The Circle Is Broken’, this record smokes some nostalgic sounds of ESG, Tom Tom Club, Sly & The Family Stone or The Glass Family to groove out an awesome modern sound.
