-valis Pick of the Week
Our Pick this week comes from the New England area of the U.S., Boston specifically, in the form of Magic Shoppe! No strangers to this blog or its readers, they opened the Summer salvo of psychedelia on our 2011, Vol. IV, compilation . Their new EP, titled Triangulum Australe , is now available via their Bandcamp page with an assist from the evr-growing pulsating brain that is Toronto's Optical Sounds label.
At four tracks it won't wear out any welcome. It might wear out your speakers. Josiah Webb & Co., in the form of Kevin Seidel and Dale Nixon, serve up a fuzz n' reverb'd recipe for your earbuds, your taste buds, and your buds with good taste. (I'm sure there are more angles to this "bud" thing but I'm not going there.)
To wit, try "Shangri-La In Reverse".....
At $4.- it's ridiculously well worth the coins, imho. (Seems less than quite a few other things which are decidedly NOT worth their coins.) Perhaps if enough of us put some in that porcine coin-containment device they'll build a long player next time 'round the Sun. Then we can all say: "..well done voyagers!"
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 Monday from 1 to 3 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
