-valis Pick ofthe Week

Hail Voyagers! Another week, another Pick! From the Land of 1,000 Lakes comes our intrepid psychedelic explorers, as befits their heritage. Minnesota's own Flavor Crystals!
They've just released their new album, Three, on the mpls ltd. label, as well as digitally via Bandcamp. (Double white vinyl -slurp, and a bonus 'soundtrack' album, also on white vinyl. Digitally 14 tracks. Vinyl has 24.) Josh, Nat, Vince, and Jon, collectively Flavor Crystals, have seemingly gone to the farthest moon of Jupiter, camped with instruments and recording equipment, and brought back the vibe of the space. For those in the Minneapolis area, Flavor Crystals will be playing the Kitty Cat Klub on Saturday, June 16th, with Pony Trash and (our own great friends) Chatham Rise. You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Friday from 3 to 6am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA. (* Note: this is the final Friday, June 1st, that Sunrise Ocean Bender will air on that day and time slot; Mr. Atavist is moving the feast to Mondays, beginning June 4th, from 1am to 3am, Eastern Time.)
