The chatter in our information age feels intolerable.
On one hand, it brings to light issues that’ve been ignored for too long. On the other hand, it doesn’t seem like our minds are meant to process information this fast. Who could blame you for feeling overwhelmed?
Much love to folks in Houston this week. Here are some tunes to stop thinking about things for a couple hours.

For the first time in a long time the U.S. put aside differences for a brief moment to watch the sun go dark. A cosmic event and a moment for reflection on where we fit in to the world and beyond. It didn’t last long but it was nice to know so many people were enjoying something together.
The title of this week’s show reflects the cynicism that creeps back in after such moments, and as we move forward I thought we could explore the recent sounds of psych, garage and more. Every song in this set was made after 2014, with many being new releases this year. Hope you enjoy, and that this can suffice as another small moment where we enjoy something together.

“This isn’t about what is . . . it’s about what people think is. It’s all imaginary anyway. That’s why it’s important. People only fight over imaginary things.” – Neil Gaiman

Chuck Berry finally shuffled off at the age of 90 this week and as a St. Louis native myself it’s sad to see him go. The first half hour today is all about sneaking a peek at some of his influence. Rest easy to one the most influential figures in rock and roll!
The rest of this week gives some love to Sly Stone for his birthday, Thin Lizzy for being Irish, some hard rockers and psych freakouts and BRAND NEW tracks from Sun Abduction, Pontiak, Entrance, Stuyedeyed, Kung Funghi, & Prana Crafter. There’s even a preview of Riding Easy Records’ new Brown Acid comp!
Something for everybody is what I’m getting at. I’m gonna put my adult cares aside for a bit and rock out. Care to join me?

After a friend mentioned the new format would be perfect “lazy Saturday music” I decided to start this week’s show off mellow and build up to the hard stuff. On our second foray into mixing new and old there’s a lot on the table. From local Brooklyn rockers (The Tye Trybe, The London Souls) to more standard fare like the Rolling Stones and Black Sabbath, it’s a feast for the ears. Dig in and fill up.
