Thousand Foot Whale Claw Return With The Transcendent “The Garden from Above”

2018 was the year I discovered Holodeck Records. Their sampler Holodeck Vision One pretty much blew my mind, opening my ears to cats like Jake Schrock, Michael C. Sharp, Automelodi, Future Museums, Single Lash, Dallas Acid, Troller, and so many more. Another artist I discovered on that 2018 compilation was Thousand Foot Whale Claw. TFWC […]

Negative Space by B.R. Yeager

B.R. Yeager’s Negative Space lives up to its name. It’s a book that seeps of negativity; sadness, indifference, grief, and an insurmountable weight of hopelessness that I hope to never revisit any time soon. Please dear reader, don’t take this as a condemnation of Mr. Yeager’s tome of loss, psychedelia, nihilism, and destructive escapism. Take […]

INUIT : IIAALI

Italian native Marco Santucci de Magistris, aka INUIT, takes a deep dive on his debut release IIAALI on the always amazing Aural Canyon Records.

Animal Collective -Painting With

Animal Collective can say that they have most assuredly created their own unique musical world. No one can even come close to reinterpreting their sound and their vibe.

Medicine :: Home Everywhere

I’ve been listening to Medicine’s new album Home Everywhere for three days straight and I’m still finding new nuggets of aural beauty every time I hit play. Brad Laner, Beth Thompson, and Jim Goodall don’t make cut and dry kind of albums. They make albums that beg for repeated listens. Much like the films of […]

The Flaming Lips- The Terror

The Flaming Lips have been in the downward spiral for some time now.  I think it really started back in 2006 with At War With The Mystics.  There was a feeling that they were having fun but at their sanity’s expense.  Part bat-s**t crazy, part big rock songs, that album was the door to an […]

The Holydrug Couple- Noctuary

Santiago, Chile isn’t what I would imagine to be a psychedelic hot spot in the world, but Holydrug Couple are here to show me -and the rest of the world- otherwise. Noctuary is at once dreamy and pleasant and also disorienting and hallucinogenic. If last year’s Lonerism by Tame Impala and Melody’s Echo Chamber s/t […]
