This is a mix I made while still living in Michigan that’s been floating on various memory cards until just a few days ago. Unfortunately I can’t place the piece between the Burning Star Core/Prurient collab and the Nate Young track as I’ve lost the tracklist for this mix some time ago. I like to fall asleep during the hazy moments of this one, engage in some horrific dream and let Jagger’s synth workout at the end be my alarm clock.

I’d asked my man Michael Dresden (AKA Amongst) to make a mix for the site some time ago, since his tastes range across damn near everything and a little bit more. He’s been making music in isolation since the 80s and I’ll be shedding light on some of that material later this year. But for this he picked some of his favorites, and it hits a totally weird zone starting off with one of my favorite Vangelis pieces. Check it out.

YOU TODAY

My friend Sean McBride AKA Martial Canterel makes his video debut with this one, and I really can’t wait to see more in this realm from him. This song is available with two non-album tracks as a 7″ single or download from Pieter Schoolwerth’s Wierd Records. I had previously posted the video for Sean’s other project Xeno and Oaklander before. It’s nice to see more and more videos from this camp. This video was shot by his Xeno partner, Liz Wendelbo.

Below is a live video of another track from his forthcoming album You Today, also on Wierd.

Wierd Records recently released two nice LPs by Automelodi and Frank (Just Frank). Videos from both of those albums are below.

DEPARTURE FROM THE INTERIOR WASTELAND

My friends Emeralds played in Los Angeles last night at the Henry Fonda Theater. It was a fantastic set right from the start but it took me a while to start recording video. I managed to capture the last 10 minutes of their set.

Check Hanson Records for Emeralds and related records & cassettes.

CRIMINALIA: GHOULSON GUEST MIX

A new mix and collage were contributed by Kristian Olsson of Alfarmania, the Ghoulson blog, label Bolvark Tapes and known for his now-defunct project Survival Unit. His new solo LP Att vara där jag var innan jag var jag is available – information at nattmaran.se.

“Five years ago I did a tape called Criminalia with sounds from some of my favourite eurocrime films, sourced directly from vhs and mixed in rough way. Last year I did a second volume, but this collided with a collapsing private life and only a handful of copies are in circulation. While getting things straightened out, here is an exclusive mix I made for Soldiers Disease featuring both new stuff and extractions from vol 2. I lost the track-list but some of the films included are: Il Caso Venere Privata, Gli Uccisori, L’immoralità, Lúcio Flávio – Passenger of Agony, Vertigo pour un tueur, Macrò – Guida uccide il venerdiì, Eyes Behind the Wall, Man on His Knees, The Maniac Responsible, Your Hands on My Body, Knife of Ice, Kriminal, Col cuore in gola, Bandits in Milan, Spell – Sweet Slaughterhouse, Investigation of a citizen above suspicion, Night of Hate, Come cani arrabbiati, Crazy Joe, Nine Guests for a Crime, Wake Up and Kill, Day of Violence, Special Squad Shoots on Sight, In The Highest of Skies, Savage Three and many others.” – Kristian Olsson

GET ON THE ROAD AND FUCKIN’ GO

My man Steve Lowenthal of Swingset Magazine threw down this heavy mix of road jams to get you in the travellin’ zone. Seeing as I’ve got a cross country move coming up in a few days, I’ve already thrown this on the pod with the expectation of much play in the truck.

  1. Amon Duul IIEye Shaking King – German psych damage to kick things off in the heavy depths of LSD drenched burnout. Guitars to infinity lead the way to new paths and modes of travel. Open your Third Eyes and roll.
  2. Captain Beefheart and the Magic BandZig Zag Wanderer – More acid damage, this time from the deserts of nowhere USA. the Captain is in top form and the band blazes through gong washes to show how fucked the blues can get. Real rock & roll for true freaks. Not welcome in any town.
  3. The WitchMotherless Child – ’75 Zambian psych from nowhere Hendrix shredders that just calls you to hit the road. Exotic locales beckon and heavy guitar struts syncopate the moves. Hit it.
  4. CreamTales of Brave Ulysses – ’67 bootleg recording from the Grande Ballroom in Detroit. Fucking Clapton sucks but shit is straight SHREDDING here, ultimate wah pedal madness drives a heavy foot on the gas pedal before the stars explode. Almost makes “Wonderful Tonight” forgivable. Almost.
  5. Religious Knives96 Tears – Live recording of this classic standard by NY contempo psych lords. Cavallo and Nelson ride the groove all night long while Mike and Maya get dub over the beat. Too many teardrops. Drop Acid and hit the highways instead.
  6. Endless BoogieUntitled – Unreleased archive rehearsal from the classic days w/Chris Gray manning the kit. If this doesn’t get you a speeding ticket and inspire smokin cigs and drinkin whiskey while wailin on gtr then nothin will. Best band in New York on any given night in those days. Badass.
  7. George BensonSmokin’ Cheeba Cheeba – Man, I dunno how you roll but when Killer Kev and I rolled XCountry we were blazing the whole ride like shit was going outta style. Yeah George Benson isn’t known for bein this slick but this shit is undeniable. From the XXX LP “Erotic Moods”. Grip it with a pound of good stuff.
  8. WeirdosLife of Crime – Gnarly LA punk from back in the day. True outlaw steez is undeniable. Good for fucking and driving.
  9. GroundhogsGarden – more 70s UK psych road freak outs. Just wait for the gtr solo to bust open yr head and make the road spread like a porn star on payday.
  10. The NervesOne Way Ticket – 70s LA power pop bout getting the fuck outta town. Holler.
  11. Dan Melchior’s Broke RevueFrom A Buick 6 – Heavy gtr take on a Dylan classic with brute british hatred and stretched out psych beat madness. Better than the original.
  12. Major StarsTwo Degrees – latest rager from Boston psych kings and queens. Major Stars, Major Rock, Major Road, Major Triple Guitars, Major Burn. Mandatory on every level.
  13. Link WrayDeuces Wild – 50s King of the heavy guitar takes us on a ride. Get into a fight, steal a car, fuck someone else’s chick and fuckin motor. Don’t take no shit. Link don’t. Primitive drums.
  14. Flamin’ GrooviesWhiskey Woman – Killer road ballad that ends with a proto-punk burst that will get you across state lines in no time. Better than the Stones. USA motherfucker. Deal with it.
