What if Xander Harris Threw a Rave But Nobody Came?

Not a great turnout at this rave.

On the plus side, the drugs seem to be working.


Yeasayer Gets a Face Massage

I feel like I just watched someone else’s acid trip.

Boris Divider and Conquerer

This one’s got a real “end of 2001 (the movie not the year) communicating with extraterrestrials” kind of feel to it.

Get it here.

Psych Out With Les Momies De Palerme

Ooh, sparkly! And weird. More weird than sparkly, to be honest.

Music to Start a Cult By: Transmuteo

If you’re planning to start a New Age cult, might I suggest you hire Transmuteo as your musical director?

Kissing a Prog: Robert John Godfrey’s Fall of Hyperion

I don’t know anything about this crazy prog extravaganza from 1974, except that I started listening to it and … I think I sort of love it.

Well, ok, I found a few things online about the album, and the one odd factoid that stood out for me was that the guy playing guitar on the album was a very young James Honeyman Scott, whom you may recall was later in a little  band called The Pretenders. Pretty much none of his distinctive later style is evident on this album, though, which is actually pretty light on guitar overall.

A pair of songs by Gazelle Twin


So, a couple of songs off of Gazelle Twin’s new EP Mammal. They’re moody, pretty, and a bit creepy. The first video here is the official video for “Heartbeat.” The visuals for the second song, “I Turn Your Arm” come from the horror film Beyond the Black Rainbow, which, in an amazing coincidence, I recently watched. It’s a gorgeous film, as you can see from the video, but it doesn’t quite live up to the visuals.

Join a creepy 70s cult with The Belbury Poly

This music video has such a hypnotically hauntological 70s vibe that by the time you are finished watching it you will be wearing a Dharma Initiative jumpsuit.

Freak yourself out with EMV

Creep yourself the hell out with this little music video. Probably not a good idea to watch this if you’re in the middle of a psychotic episode.
