This is a pretty incredible series of Electronic and Psychedelic music spanning decades and touching on several genres including Psych-folk, Jazz, Krautrock and Experimental music. This is the first of 8 episodes in a playlist. Curated by John Richardson. Dig in!
As I reported back in July, I’ve been handling bass for SF heavy psych metal band Turn Me On Dead Man, who recently signed to Heavy Psych Sounds out of Italy. Since then the album has been pressed up and is ready to ship! There are black and transparent splatter available. Purchase links are HERE and check out this stellar review via The Obelisk.

Also in the works is a European tour that is slated to kick off in Feb 2018, more details as that develops.
My first show with these guy will be November 17th at Coopers in Nevada City.
One final bit of business to announce here is our Patreon campaign. In order to keep up on gear maintenance, rehearsal rent, transportation and other incidental things that keep a band afloat, we need to solicit the help of our friends, fans and family. We hate to do it but the days of major labels floating developing artists with bloated budgets are long over, we do this on our own and with the support of an Independent label. That being said, independent labels like Heavy Psych are essential to our growth, and they facilitate our being able to gain exposure in different markets, but they are not backed by major label money, and we still have to support a lot of what we do in the day to day of the band. Check out the Patreon and pitch in if you can, there will be exclusive content and future offers on merch etc. for patrons of our campaign. You will be rewarded!

I am more than pleased to announce the release of this collaborative work. About 6 months ago I discovered the wonderfully long and immersive Ambient recordings of Wings of An Angel and began sharing some of these on my sprawling blogger playlist ‘Digtal Rivers’ which is now around 750 releases deeeeep!
Anyway, Felix contacted me shortly thereafter and thanked me for sharing his works and asked if I was interested in a collaboration as he had sampled some of my stuff and liked what he heard. Over the next few weeks we set out to record and remotely add to each others works in a pretty fluid and painless process that yielded excellent results. I feel we just scratched the surface a bit and hope to further explore what possibilities may lie beneath in future endeavors.
