After more than 3 weeks since the initial line-up announcement for Austin Psych Fest (#1 Live Show, 2012 and #4, 2011) was promised "this week," we now have info!
Here's the initial line-up:
Some returning alumni, some old-time faves, some new faces... What's at the top?
"Loaded" by Primal Scream, from Screamadelica (1991)
From the early-'90s, and since...
"From Centre to Wave" by Loop, from A Gilded Eternity (1990)
From the early-'90s only!! Here's fan video for "Be Here Now" too.
"Time of the Season" by The Zombies, from Odessey And Oracle (1968)
Hits from the actual '60s!
From... more recently?? Hopefully you have your tickets already.
"Problem Areas" by Oneohtrix Point Never, from R Plus Seven (2013)
I haven't been listening new OPN since around the #39 of 2010 - but I'll still probably try to go live.
"Join the Dots" by Toy, from Join the Dots (2013)
I think that's the correct Toy (artist).
"Clear the Air" by Jacco Gardner, from Cabinet of Curiosities (2013)
This was the first unknown artist I randomly looked up, and: not too bad...
"The Bank Robbery (Escape from New York)" from Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter (2010)
Might not be the Carpenter fest of a few years back, but maybe they'll theme it up proper.
"Creature of the Demon" by Kadaver, from Kadaver (2012)
I'm glad the heaviness is creeping in!
"uᏞuᏒu ᏒᎾᏟᏦ" by ᎬᎪᏒᏆhᏞᎬss, from From the Ages (2013)
I'm only gonna mention a couple of super-pleasant surprises.
#1: EARTHLESS!! (I believe they were one of my answers when asked by Psych Fest on Facebook who we'd like to see.)
"Void Redux" by Barn Owl, from V (2013)
And #2: Barn Owl!! Yusssssss...
