“14 tracks: Psychedelic Wanderlust”

At the fringes of lo-fi, freeform folk, blues and experimental electronics are a number of artists operating with an untamed and psychedelic spirit of wanderlust. These cottage craftsmen share a large amount of DIY and improvised sensibilities, often inspired by standardised forms like the classic folk and pop song or the spiritual Indian Raga, but intuitively seeking to free the music through distorted personal perceptions. Applying the "psychedelic" prefix to any style can be precarious, certainly when it leads to lazy tagging and lumpen classification, but these modern practitioners all deserve the title. Whether it's the great, recently departed Jack Rose's exquisite raga blues modifications, Astral Social Club's motorik electronics or the psilocybic sound collages of Black To Comm, the peripheries of modern psyche are providing some of the most charmingly esoteric sounds that we can find. In the mists of the online environment these scattered souls are able to proliferate in the undergrowth, leaving truffles of rare and unexplored beauty ready to be found by intrepid explorers like yourself.

“Narcotic murk - yummy!”

Particularly liking that Astral Social Club track. Kind of a murky, soupy, krautrock-meets-Birchville kind of feel to it. Kudos &etc.

“Lovely stuff”

Great to see a wide range of psychedelia catered for (instead of the usual 'obvious' garage rock/folk rock cliches). Nice.

“brilliant mix”

inspired selections, I have a couple of these albums and have been trying to find a couple of others, but I want the whole 14 as they glue together so brilliantly, and this lot makes a great sort of A side to the angelo badel.. 14 which is also great, thanks...

“Pretty Dreamy”

Wow, what a cool mixture of electronic meets an almost late 80's version of Sonic Youth(just much less distortion of course) .
Definitely a late evening laid back indie lounge setting feel.

“Nice Screams”

Really like this selection, have not heard of about 2/3 so plenty to digest and trouble me. Will be great to play on my show once understood.
