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.
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.

Wow, this new Black Angels tune kicks serious ass. Their new album Indigo Meadow is out April 2nd and “Evil Things” is downloadable if you pre-order from iTunes. But then again, why would you do that when you can pre-order vinyl…and other configurations that come with hot sauce and shit. For now, crank this one up…
The Black Angels on tour:
“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
Behold the mighty Foxygen. These kids rule. The pic above is from when they came and played live on my East Village Radio show in early 2012.
Jagjaguwar signed them up in the meantime and officially issued their amazing self-made LP, Take the Kids Off Broadway, and the world sang their praises in unison! What we have below is a video for the song, “San Francisco”, from Foxygen’s new album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic, out January 22nd on Jag. So let’s just stop talking and enjoy this very pleasurable song and video…

The mighty Eternal Tapestry have another fantastic album coming out November 13th, care of Thrill Jockey, called A World Out Of Time. I’ve been listening to it for the past week or so and loving it. It might be my favorite from them yet. Full cosmic Atman!
Take a taste…
And methinks you should pre-order the vinyl now and get a bonus CDr called Prometheus Rising thrown in for good measure!
Some details about the bonus CDr :
“Prometheus Rising is a CD-R that plays like a full album. Clocking in at 42 minutes, the six tracks span the full extent of Eternal Tapestry’s existence. The disc opens with “The Prowler” – a set standard that the band has been playing live for years, previously unavailable. Title track “Prometheus Rising” is purposeful and driven as it leads into “Bridge Over an Abyss” – a psychedelic, ominous cosmic chasm of loose, foreboding darkness. The disc closes with live track “Blots and Blurs,” an epic burner of a track, crescendoing over the course of 13 minutes in impressive fashion.”
Dig this vid for “Apocalypse Troll” from A World Out Of Time and see if you recognize a riff:
“A World Out of Time, Portland quintet Eternal Tapestry’s second full-length of 2012, is a new kind of album for the band. As opposed to previous efforts, which were culled from many hours of recordings, it was recorded as a whole. The resulting record, while not restricted to the four minute song, has the focus and the flow that only music conceived as a narrative can. Taking inspiration from groups like Faust and Algarnas Tradgard, the album unfolds as a collage, the most salient elements of their sound sewn into a seamless patchwork. In the process, the group has constructed an incredibly dynamic album, juxtaposing expansive improvised sections with their most deliberate material yet.”
