Austin Psych Favorites

Gonna be a lot like the previous APF post yesterday - but this time, it's personal! Some of the involved bands that I'm already super-geared up for...

Once again with a minimum of yakkin'.

"Sonic Prayer Jam" by Earthless, live at Winter's Womb III,
The Casbah, San Diego, CA (01/21/2012)

YES!!! Never seen Earthless before - #3 of 2008, shoulda-been's of 2007, and #3 of 2005. Psyched!

Barn Owl - Turiya from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

Wait, I mentioned these drone magicians at the end of the last time, right? O well, we're talking #8 of 2011 and #11 of 2010, and greatness beyond.

"Dream Odyssey" by Mono, from For My Parents (2012)

Occasionally mellow, until they aren't. Mono (#4, 2009 and #5,2006 among others) have been very good to see live (#7 Live, 2009 and #10 Live, 2010).

"Mazes" by Moon Duo, from Mazes (2011)

From year before last, Moon Duo (#11, 2013) were awesome fun (at A.P.F. and #7 Live, 2012).

"To Clean" by Woods, from Songs of Shame (2009)

Woods has been on a 3-album Top 10 tear, and mighta gotten the previous in there somehow: #9 of 2012, #7 of 2011, and #6 of 2010. They were a highlight for me at APF5 (#1 Live, 2012)... and I often forget I discovered them as a terrific opener (#4 Live, 2009).

"H-p1" by White Hills, from H-p1 (2011)

Got to meet some of White Hills (co-#5, 2010) at my first Psych Fest (#4 Live, 2011), which was cool. I'm glad to hear we'll get another shot. They do so much so good - check out their bassist-director's official video channel: Ego Sensation.

"Blue Velvet Blues" by Acid Mothers Temple, from Pataphisical Freak Out MU! (1999)

I keep missing AMT! Must not miss AMT again.

"Ready to Fly" by Aqua Nebula Oscillator, from Aqua Nebula Oscillator (2002)

I've only heard Aqua Nebula Oscillator's 2002 self-titled album. Guess which year is next for a historical 21st-century Top 10 list??

"Entrance Song" [***NSFW video***] by The Black Angels, from Phosphene Dream (2010)

Oops, almost forgot the main hosts! The Black Angels, since #3 of 2006, and... let's say: co-#6 Live Show, 2010.

Might be the last of these for awhile. But if I do another one soon, it will be more exploratory of currently unknown players.
