It’s Psychedelic Baby, Mixtape 1

Hello all of you Psychedelia fanatics! Today, we bring you a
special treat! Something altogether new for this site and hopefully some
undiscovered treasures for you! I, Hunter Gatherer, have taken it upon myself
to compile a series of mixes for you to get lost in. Today, I bring you Volume
1 of It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine’s mixtape series!

The mix begins with some transcendental spoken word ala
White Hills inviting you to step out of your bodies for the duration of the
mix. Then we transition into the frenetic mania of Uncle Acid & The Dead
Beats with their “I’ll Cut You Down.” We mellow out again with
“Waves,” enjoying the calm before the storm of “La PIste Des
Larmes” and “Corridors, Part 1.” Get Your Gun takes over with
their heavy handed, Country tinged “Staying For A While.” Farflung
takes us into Black Sabbathian territory with”9 Pin Body.”
Finally the stage changes hue and The Strangers Family Band
takes us into the eye of Psychedelia with the plucking of their sitars in
“Strange Transmissions.” Jacco Gardner takes us into Baroque-esque
Psychedelic Pop with “Clear The Air,” then Earth Mk. II takes us into
their inter-spacial dimension with “My Universe.” Amen Dunes breathes
intemperate life into our ears with “Baba Yaga.”
Now we step out into the world with strange and exotic
instrumentation, melodies, rhythms, tempos, and soul. Aalto brings us
“Dyngyldai” with its throbbing melody, beat, and one of the most unique
features of this track and the band in itself; throat singing! Montibus
Communitas takes us off into the wild where we’re left to fend for ourselves
with just our minds in “Hanan Pacha.” The Dead Skeletons are masters of
bringing us the sounds of the ancient world and they do so with “Ljosberinn.”
Then, finally, we blast out on a high note with Woodwall’s “Wood Empire”!
It is my sincere hope that this music is met with open and
adventurous ears! Rock on.

    I love this. As someone who does a weekly Psych Rock show, a playlist like this is a gold mine. Where did you find those White hills tracks? I can't find them on any album. I wish to buy them.
    ....and the HITS just keep on coming!

      Hey Mike! Thanks for the compliments! I love putting this stuff together. The White Hills tracks were from one of their self-released albums Glitter Glamour Atrocity

    I really like the mix!
    but is there a way to skip to a certain song or see which song is playing right now?
    cheers, schwengel
