Killer. Here's a bunch of celebratory videos:

"Stop" by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, from Take Them On, On Your Own (2003)

I know a lot of people who dig 'em, but for whatever reason I missed out. Sounds like something I could rock out to.

"Desire Lines" by Deerhunter, from Halcyon Digest (2010)

I think we saw one or two of these guys solo projects at one or the other of the last couple of Psych Fests. Again, another reputable band that I just never followed up on. Artsy, right?

"Tenere Taqqim Tossam" by Tinariwen, from Tassili (2011)

I enjoyed Bombino so much this year, that I'm also looking forward to the original Sarahan Toureg exports.

"Walking with Thee" by Clinic, from Walking with Thee (2002)

Hey, that's a bunch of the major acts that aren't even in the Astral wheelhouse. Howsabout some...

"Rainbow" by Boris with Michio Kurihawa, from Rainbow (2006)

BORIS?! Whoa... Along with Acid Mothers Temple, that'll be TWO legendary Japanese psych-outfits!

"Wucan" by Black Mountain, from In the Future (2008)

Weirdly, I've run into Stephen McBean at the last two fests... In 2011, he was sitting in with The Shine Brothers - and last year, he was performing with Pink Mountaintops. Now it's the real deal: Black Mountain full-on!

"Goatman" by Goat, from World Music (2012)

I will quote myself:
Not saying Goat is the only Swedish voodoo-themed psychedelic Afro-Funk band going these days, but that's probably accurate.

"Worlds" by The Cult of Dom Keller, from EP2 (2010)

CODK!! Back after a year's lay-off from the Psych Fest cycles... We'll see if they can top their personal best in Texas!

Probably another APF-themed video round-up coming soon.
