Dip into the upcoming soundtrack from Drag City Films’ Source Family documentary. Guess what? It’s cleverly titled The Source Family!
“In case you don’t know the underground legend already or haven’t seen the film yet – for the last couple decades, the cult around The Source Family cult has enjoyed the music of Ya Ho Wa 13, whose nine albums with Father were a major part of their story. Recorded during an eleven-month span during 1973 and ’74, these albums continue to fascinate listeners to this day. The Original Soundtrack album pulls plums and cherries from these freakish fruit trees of The Source Family, whose album releases from the 1970s are an indication of how weird the world can be even when it isn’t trying.
Yo, we’re gonna be slinging our vinyl/tape wares at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair this Saturday at Smorgasburg. The weather looks to be fantastic and there will be food and drink and jams galore. See ya there!
Shows include Austin Psych Fest, Moon Block Party, Desert Daze
Band unveils trippy “Ancient’s Future” video
“Comprised of 2 members, Andrew Clinco of Incan Abraham and Phil Pirrone, founder of Moon Block Party, the spacey vibrations JJUUJJUU have put down include stunning layers of processed guitars, celestial pulses and massive beats from Andrew Clinco…their musical vision and penchant for touching the farthest reaches of space make them a compelling act to watch grow.” — Kim’s Video and Music
JJUUJJUU is an astral union, an arcane ritual, and above all, a conversation. Harnessing an unspoken energy, the pairing (Andrew Clinco of Incan Abraham + Phil Pirrone, founder of Moon Block Party) have exponentially blossomed from a sonic experiment to a forceful, telepathic dialogue of distinct-but-aligned vibrations.
The duo is embarking on a tour in support of FRST, out now on Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. Catch JJUUJJU on the dates below, including performances at Desert Daze, Austin Psych Fest and Psych De Mayo.

Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records’ Label Launch Party, Sunday, April 14th
…we’re gonna have us a champagne jam!
All right then. We’ve gone from fetus to newborn to crawling in under a year’s time and now BBiB Records is off and running with 4 stellar magical musical releases, all from bands we are in love with. So now we’re gonna make our little label official with this here label launch party on Sunday, April 14th at Glasslands Gallery.
And we’re doing it with a few bands on our roster, Prince Rupert’s Drops, MMOSS, and Quilt! And our good pals The Electric Mess will kick off the festivities in a most-fun freakbeat kind of way. And to put the lysergic cherry on top of the psychedelic sundae, Drippy Eye Projections will be bringing the visual stimulation.
We’ll also have all of our records for sale and we’ll have a special vinyl package deal. And you’ll be able to buy the new MMOSS & Quilt split 10″ EP, New Hampshire Freaks, a week and two days before its April 23rd release date!

“Although the album contains just 4 songs, each one takes you on such a journey that it plays out like a mini-album in itself. “Astronauttija” launches like an early Floyd song with shiny guitars and catchy hooks before transitioning into an interstellar hoedown of sorts. Once that lets out, we’re treated to a fury of overdriven, phased-out psychedelic guitars and space rumbles that blows minds. “Tomte Mars” almost feels like a prayer with its raga-like openings that soon becomes a swirling mass of guitars, harmonicas and spacey atmospherics. After the quarter-hour long beautiful and ever-searching dins of “Pines II Makumatka”, you’ll certainly feel scrambled however rejuvenated thanks to long strides of languid guitars, flutes, mouth-harps amidst hushed overtures. There’s so much wizardry and scruffy prismatic glory on Pines that you can simply just get lost in it and isn’t that what makes the best psychedelic music good? Indeed.” – Kim’s Video and Music
Hey, tune in to BBiB on East Village Radio on Friday, Feb 1, as Psychic Ills mastermind, Tres Warren will be sitting in with me spinning trippy afternoon jammers.
We’ll certainly be talking about and playing stuff from Ills’ new One Track Mind album, out Feb 19th on Sacred Bones.
And if you’re in NY, you’d be a fool to miss the record release show next week at Bowery Ballroom. Not only is Psychic Ills playing, but White Hills and BBiB Records’ own Prince Rupert’s Drops! (And I’ll be handling the jams before the show and in between sets).
Tell ‘em Marc sent ya.
Psyched to welcome Sky Picnic to the EVR show tomorrow. Their new Paint Me A Dream album was one of my absolute favorites from 2012. Tune on in 2-4pm ET for a chat and acoustic session!
