the ocean wants me

Had a beautiful night on the coast with my brother Eric. Our intention was to record as much as possible in one night as we both know the reality of our geographical proximity (we never get to hang like bro's should be able to). It was perfect weather and while very much blissed out with our conditions for the evening, we couldn't get the digital recording set up to our liking. We did however photograph each other doing Karate in the sunset and play lush music into the night until the cold medicine kicked in. Silly codine.

new/old gems I am listening to include:
• Chavez - Gone Glimmering
(matt sweeneys early band that'll kick you in that ass 2x. This disk is so good and ahead of it's time)
• Dead Meadow - Shivering King And Others
(heavy early sabbath drudge blues sound. Not quite stoner rock, but it a good time.)
• • The Pretty Things - Parachute
(why i never got into this band I don't know. a stripped down badfinger meets early kinks)
Sleep - Holy Mountain
(old project of Matt Pike from High on Fire. It really doesn't get much heavier that this guy)
• Kimya Dawson - Remember That I Love You
(this woman will crack you up and make you cry. She writes beautiful quirky songs on her acoustic about stuff you might actually care about)
• Giant Skyflower Band - Blood Of The Sunworm
(Side project of Shayd and Glenn from Skygreen Leapords. Neo Psych from the weird part of your soul)
• Neil Young - Zuma
(doesn't matter how many times you've heard Cortez the Killer ... that guitar tone is the sweetest thing to the ears. Makes my heart slow down and my blood speed up.)
• Trans Am - Sex Change
(latest effort for the swell DC synthy cockrock trio. More electro fun than previous releases)

This Mummified Chupakabra is really freakin' me out. Thanks Derek.
