Thanksgiving break + Viva playlists

In case you haven't noticed, the site's on a short hiatus while I try to find a better file-hosting situation (Divshare is cool but I keep running out of bandwidth). In the meantime check out my show every Saturday at noon on Viva Radio or check the archives for previous episodes. This Saturday it's country brunch hour with a weirdo folk / mellow psych chaser:

Psychic Ills + Earthless + Gang Wizard + Indian Jewelry

Multi-combo post, 4x heavy:

Psychic Ills, Mirror Eye (Social Registry 2009)
On their new full-length (out in Jan.), Psychic Ills ignore the propulsion and lounge in the mirror-eye thunderbolt pagoda while a musical fog settles around em echoing and oscillating, breeeeaaaaaathe it in ....

Psychic Ills - "Fingernail Tea"

Earthless, Live at Roadburn (Tee Pee 2008)
Hit start, rock hard for an hour and a half, hit stop -- total riff worship / feedback worship as San Diego's Earthless scorches Tilburg, Holland. Massive double disc.

Earthless - "From the Ages (excerpt)"

Gang Wizard, God-Time-Man Universal Continuum Calibration Disc (olFactory 2008)
I'm not always in th mood for a full-on freakout ... but yeah this is good, time for liftoff. Freeform rock and mangled/strangled electronix out of Burbank, Calif.

Gang Wizard - "Whoever Invents"

One more dose: Excellent vid for Indian Jewelry's "Swans" hosted on pitchfork.tv. That 30-second stretch with the strobes right before the end is a good representation of what it's like to see these dudes live ... *_*

Indian Jewelry - "Swans


The Units

The Unit Training Film ("Warm Moving Bodies")

Thanks to Wzrdshngry for tipping me to these dudes, crazy West Coast synth-punk. (And thanks to everyone who came out Thursday night, total fun time.)
