Podcast 2024.03 Sonic Prayer

After obsessing about the Doomsday Clock I decided to quiet my mind. The playlist for this episode his strong sixties influences, not only bands that cultivate a sixties sound, but also a track featuring Dorothy Moskowitz of The United States of America, who released a seminal album in 1968.

Interesting trans-oceanic collaborations in this episode of Turn Me On, Dead Man. Modoki is a collaboration between Mike Vest (UK) and Mitsuru Tabata (Japan), as well as the collaboration between the Swedish artist Retep Lofo (Peter Olof Fransson) and Dorothy Moskowitz from, of course, The United States of America. Their track “Moon” is one of the recurring references to the Moon in this episode. The opening track is by One Eyed Moon. Modoki’s track is “Luna To Phobos Revisited” and Sonic Dealer’s track comes from their album So, God Doesn’t Live on the Moon.

All of the tracks in this episode were released in 2024 (except the closing track by Kiyazami of psychedelic source records). One heartening development for 2024 is that Bandcamp is continuing Bandcamp Friday. They held Bandcamp Friday on February 2nd and I bought some of the tracks in this episode on that occasion. I had worried that this event might go out the window with other cost cutting measures the new ownership of Bandcamp instituted, but they honored it at least this once. No further Bandcamp Friday dates are currently listed on the “Bandcamp Fridays in 2024” page, so we’ll see what happens as time goes on.

Drops in this episode are from the 1964 LP Yoga Meditation by Richard Hittleman. Hittleman released a whole series of Yoga instructional LPs and is credited with introducing millions of people to yoga through his writings, recordings and his TV show, Yoga for Health. As he says, you must learn to quiet your mind.

Empty Full Space

#GarageRock #Krautrock #Psych #Psychedelic #PsychedelicRock #SpaceRock

Empty Full Space are from Paris, France. EFS is made up of five French musicians, who shaped their own modern psychedelic space rock by merging krautrock influences, Hawkwind’s hypnotic patterns and tripping guitar riffs recalling The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Empty Full Space carves a heady and trancy vibe out through fuzz driven overloads, ethereal vocals effects melted into long tape echo feedbacks, and synthesizer aerial breathes.
Antoine Bruneton: bass
Nicolas Le Roulley: guitars, lead vocals
Maxime Morin: guitars
Edgar Payen: synths, percussions
Florent Walker: drums, backing vocals
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on From The Limbo?
Empty Full Space: Empty Full Space is five musicians and we all mixed our own influences to forge this album. From old school Kraut like Can to King Gizzard’s stunning performances as well as Hawkwind 70’s space rock to Kikagaku Moyo Brian Jonestown Massacre and so many more. From The Limbo is a record with different moods and styles it definitely as a wide range of influence.
Amnesia leans more toward a stoner side but your can here in it a keyboard that could be on a B-52’s track and a central bridge that could remind The Babe Rainbow. We can’t wait for you all to here the other singles to come and all of the album !
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Empty Full Space: Adolescence is a period of life that makes everything feel with such intensity as many things open up to you. So it would be records we heard as teenagers and might have changed our lives and made us what we are now.
Pink Floyd’s Meddle or Dark Side of the Moon,
The Beatles’ Abbey Road or White Album,
Radiohead’s Kid-A , Black Angel’s Directions to See a Ghost for more recent reference. That’s a tough question to ask for one record to five musicians.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Empty Full Space: Once From the Limbo is released we would like to tour and play and share our music. All over France, all over Europe and why not the world if we can! As much for those who listened to it and loved it as for those who have never heard of it.
We also never stopped working on new stuff on the side so releasing From The Limbo does not mean that our creativity is resting !

Following the instantly sold out Afterlife 7″ EP at the end of 2023, Buried Treasure Records are pleased to present the full Afterlife album by influential vocalist, musician & songwriter Dorothy Moskowitz (United States Of America / United States Of Alchemy) & producer Retep Folo a.k.a. Peter Olof Fransson (Reportage / The Owl Report).

Fans of 1960’s psychedelia, early 1970’s experimental rock & eco-conceptual electronics will find plenty to savour amongst the 14 tracks on this finely crafted album. Utilising an array of vintage instruments, Peter conjures avant-garde chorales & strange mantras bound in slabs of fuzz guitar, whimsical keyboards, jagged synths & menacing percussion. With Dorothy contributing voices, words & additional music together they have produced an album layered in arcane sound, mystical wisdom & urgent prophecy.
Dorothy explored some of these themes on the legendary United States of America album back in 1967, an enduring psych classic & major influence on artists such as Broadcast, Stereolab & Portishead. With Peter’s meticulous production bringing these far-reaching sounds and ideas full circle, The Afterlife is a heady mix that manages to acknowledge the past whilst contemplating humanity’s uncertain future.
TMODM: How did this collaboration come about?
Peter: It was in late 2018 i started working on ”The Afterlife” project and concept.
Although the title for the album came up much later.
I think it was firstly after I had been working on and recorded the composition called ”The awakening of love im the spring” , when i first somehow could hear Dorothy singing upon that track in my head, meanwhile i was staying in the Gothenburg archipelago out in the islands.
It was a very sunny summer around here then in 2019.
I had in mind her singing on ”Love Song For The Dead Che”, which had for long time got stuck in my head…
It took some courage though, to come to a point contacting her in the first place, and start writing any message at all. And nervosity by then almost killed me..
But then she answered back and had been appreciated some of my previous work.
So then the collaboration was great to go, and we got a very nice connection between us from the very start, and quickly began sharing files back and fourth to shape up what now then …. 4-5 years later ….. have become this album – ”The Afterlife”.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on The Afterlife?
Peter: The strongest influence in sense of context for the album is pretty much about mankind’s many various ways on how to screw things up from purely egoistic service-to-self needs, and the constant hunting after money.
It is about destroying the earth completely, and the future, sharing a very short seeing destructive agenda, and the obvious risks with what will follow with egoism, pollution, global warming, all wars going on
etc etc etc …
At the end one could say it is more about the lack of ”emotional intelligence” rather than having ”intelligence” as that will not help anything or anyone.
Then the positive side ”The Afterlife” is of course also about hope, love, a bit of nature romance, and about finding some sort of harmony and belonging within this world, and the life for now what one is living.
It also contains paranormal elements, with the UFO subject and within such field, and what will actually happen after death.
Hence the title track ”The Afterlife”.
Questions about the paranormal is a something that have followed me throughout my life since i began to walk at very early age.
Then also this ”Afterlife” project took a completely whole new turn and deeper meaning after my mothers passing in February 2022.
And i had really big issues if I was to proceed the whole project after her passing …
But then somehow we did.. and here we are now …
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Peter: That is a very very difficult thing to answer.
From when? And from what age?
For many years now i have been picking up quite much inspiration from Italian cinema music maestros, Alessandro Alessandroni, Piero Piccioni, Nora Orlandi, Rino De Filippi, Morricone, Egisto Macchi etc etc,
I also have been into the Krautrock genre for 30+ years, and especially the Ralf & Florian album from 1973 have become important, because of it’s much more organic feeling than any of their later work which i don’t find as contemporary. Many pieces on the Ralf & Florian record could just as well have been recorded today. And I like the floating ambient organic feeling they have created on that album.
Then of course also other German groups like Harmonia, Cluster of and their phenomenal work with Brian Eno.
I also of course have some Swedish references such as Bo Hansson.
But there are so many artists, so much music.
And I really can’t pick a favorite or just ONE single important record?
Francois De Roubaix or Jean Claude Vannier as a producer have inspired me just as with a record called ”Tromboneliness” by Albert Mangelsdorff (and which only contains trombone on it … naturally).
Then there is a lot of the earlier Kevin Ayers records, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Delia Derbyshire, or some of David Bedford’s later work/choral work, a person who i respect very much as musician, composer and personality. Again associated with Ayers and Mike Oldfield.
I am also heavily interested in contemporary/electronic/ classical music such as the work by Stockhausen, Olivier Messiaen, Bela Bartok, Karl Birger Blomdahl or Penderecki for instance …
At an early age Mid 70’s my first deepest musical impression must have been my mother playing our ELKA combo organ at home, or the Yma Sumac record ”Xtabay” which my mother played. Then there was ”Telstar” with The Tornadoes, or ”Cecilia” by Simon & Garfunkel, with it’s ”Musique Concrète” reel-to-reel rhythm.
Otherwise my two older brother’s was more into either Rock Music, or Funk, George Clinton, Funkadelic etc …. or anything that was possible to dance to
.. but anyhow it is very hard to tell what record have changed my life?
There is so much great music constantly being created by talented people, it is really hard to keep track on everything what’s going on, or even what have been going on in the past.
For instance I love the work of Ela Orleans which is very different and very inspiring sound wise.
During my teenage period i was much into Lush, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance,.. or the ”Nosferatu” album by Hugh Cornwell (Stranglers) and Robert Williams. etc and still those records are something i listen to from time to time, just as much as I like Peter Thomas Sound-Orchestra, Michael Garrick, John Fahey’s or Master Wilburn Burchette’s drone-ish guitar playing, Moondog, Ruth White, Alice Coltrane or Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett era ..
So i am not sure i am really helping you out here.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Peter: I don’t know yet what is next for me.
I will try to digest this whole ”The Afterlife” project together with Dorothy.
it have taken well over 5 years soon now to finalize it, and then we’ll see the next coming months what will happen …
I am having a few ideas on how to start next concept/project.
But we will see ..
Most possibly with a very strict selection of musical instruments.
So …
I hope this… now very long … answer can help you in some way to get some sort of overall picture. When it comes to inspiration etc … it is really hard to say anything of value, but hopefully you get a hint.

Iris and the Deadly Flowers

#GarageRock #Psychedelic

Debut full length of Iris and the Deadly Flowers from Belgium.
Eric St John: Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards
Iris St John: Bass, Vocals
Magic Nico: Drums and Tambourine
Iris is playing bass and singing on some tracks. Her Dad is a little older and playing the guitar and singing as well. Magic NICO is playing the drums. 12 tracks of amazing 60’s garage psychedelia!!
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Don’t Believe in Witches?
Eric: When playing 60’s fuzzed out garage it’s better to avoid any influence. It would be so easy to mimic The Seeds or the 13th Floor Elevator and, sadly, so many bands do it. Of course I have those influences even if it is unconsciously, but I try my best to get away from them as much as I can and come up with something fresh.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Eric: When I was a kid in the 70’s and started to hear glam rock (Slade, Sweet, Gary Glitter, David B., Alice Cooper, etc…) that changed my life because for the first time that was music not made for grown ups but it was music I could connect with and I was hooked on rock’n’roll forever.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Eric: Trying to find a record deal for Iris and the Deadly Flowers. If it works out, that’ll probably be the last physical release before retirement. because i’m getting old now and inspiration doesn’t come to me as easily at it used to. Sad but true.

The 13th Pillar

#Alternative #GarageRock #Post-punk #Psychedelia #Psychedelic #PsychedelicRock

The 13th Pillar are from the Isle of Man.
Selwyn Callister – songwriter, vocals, guitar
Karl Collins – songwriter, guitar
Gyp Buggane – bass guitar
Brian Brough – drums
“Our influences are wide and varied, being a group of music obsessives, so there is a lot of different stuff thrown in the mix, loosely; psychedelia, post punk, indie and garage rock.”
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Pieces Missing?
Selwyn (Singer / Songwriter): Personally I would say early post punk, especially Liverpool and Manchester. Joy Division, The Fall, Echo and the Bunnymen etc. Early 90s shoegaze. More recently the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Personally I would say early post punk, especially Liverpool and Manchester. Joy Division, The Fall, Echo and the Bunnymen etc. Early 90s shoegaze.

Karl (Guitar / Songwriter): I would certainly add Television to the mix, I’ripped loads off them. I would certainly add Television to the mix, I’ripped loads off them.
Brian (Drummer): Drummers who have had an influence on my playing include Phil Selway from the Radioheads, Danny Goffey from the Supergrasses, Sean Moore from the Manic Street Preachers, Martin Bulloch from the Mogwais, Ringo from the Beatleses, Tony Allen from The Goods, The Bads and the Queens, Stephen Morris from the Joy Divisions as well as the drum grooves you get on early hip-hop. I definitely attempted my shit version of Television-style grooves on the end of Who Knows What We’re Gonna Find. Radiohead’s Kid A was pretty fundamental for my 14-year old brain by demonstrating that a band can be eclectic and make whatever kind of music they want.

Gyp (Bass / Recording / Production): In addition to the above, I’d say main influence on me would be Velvet Underground. An album that changed my life, three spring to mind; Unknown Pleasures (Joy Division), Psychocandy (Jesus and Mary Chain), Sound of Confusion (Spacemen 3), there are 1000’s of others In addition to the above, I’d say main influence on me would be Velvet Underground.

TMODM: What record changed your life?
Selwyn: Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division because it showed you could do amazing music using single string guitar lines instead of struggling with barre chords.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Selwyn: What’s next is more gigs and continuing to write songs.

Unearth Noise

#Experimental #PsychedelicRock #Soundscape #World #Shamanic

Unearth Noise creates an alternate universe in sound – an audible representation of a reality beyond the veil. Transcendental music for mind, heart, and soul.
TMODM: What has had the strongest influence on your music?
Roger: I can think of two primary major influences on my music: one would be the writings of John Cage, which led me to think about music in conceptual terms rather than simply aesthetics. He also intruduced me to aleatoric music, which figures heavily in my compositional process. The second major influence on my music was due to the occassional use of psychedelics, which enabled me to see beyond the veil.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Roger: I could pick several, and I am always looking to renew that experience. In fact, I’d have to say it was Dark Side of the Moon. I like to say that I lost my psychological virginity to Pink Floyd. I heard that record at a friend’s house when I was about 13 in ’76. Up to that point I was just listening to AM radio. Dark Side was full of mystery, psychosis, and passion. It was overwhelming to process, and it made me understand what a deep impression music can make on the psyche.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Roger: I have tentative plans to do a second album release on the Shimmering Moods label, following up The Dream of Life. I am also in the begining stages of creating motorized sound sculptures, which I hope to develope and exhibit in the coming years.

One Eyed Moon

#Sludge #DesertRock #Doom #Fuzz #GaragePunk #GarageRock #HeavyPsych #Heavy #PsychedelicRock #StonerRock

One Eyed Moon is from Atlanta, Georgia.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Wasteland?
One Eyed Moon: I think the biggest influence on the album musically was that I bought a knock off Les Paul off of Craigslist and put it in drop C and the riffs just kind of fell out of the guitar. Lyrically it’s probably inspired most by Roger Waters because I wanted to write a concept record and tell an entire narrative that flows though the entire album.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
One Eyed Moon: A record that changed my life was probably any Queens of the Stone Age record. I don’t remember which one I heard first but that was the first more mainstream low tuned guitar driven stuff I had heard besides Black Sabbath.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
One Eyed Moon: Next for me is more recording and hopefully a southeast tour. Thanks for listening and I really appreciate the shout out. It really does help immensely.

The Albinos

#AcidRock #GaragePsych #GarageRock #IndieRock #PsychedelicRock #StonerRock

The Albinos are a small band of prairie beatniks that play Noisy Psychedelic Spaghetti Rock. Formed in August 2023 outside Houston, Texas.
TMODM: What are you working on now?
Albinos: More songs, more volume, more tambourine! Texas is under water right now, great songs come from the water. I’m pretty sure Bob Wills said that. Full length LP is the plan. Looking for a good label. Maybe we should move to Nashville.

Untimely Dosage

#Alternative #Bedroom #Lo-Fi #Neopsychedelia #Psychedelia #Psychedelic #PsychedelicRock #Punk #Shoegaze

Untimely Dosage are a Psychedelic Rock quartet from Toronto, Canada. Originally “The Lamaas,” Untimely Dosage have reinvented themselves as a blend of high energy psychedelic punk rock and alternative lofi, emanating the sounds of Thee Oh Sees, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and Mac Demarco.
Guitar – Lew Major
Bass – Simon Topa
Drums – Tenzin Lama
Keys – Justin Gregory
Lead Vocals – Lew Major
Backing Vocals – Simon Topa
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Farewell Sweet Prince?
Untimely Dosage: Farewell, Sweet Prince is about metamorphosis. We started recording this when we were The Lamaas, a name we’d gone by since high school. This project features the last recordings from our previous drummer, Tenzin Lama. During the production, Tenzin had left to pursue his own personal life goals, so we named the EP “Farewell, Sweet Prince” as a joke. As time went on, however, we just found it to be a more meaningful name. We’d grown up alongside him, so this felt like more than a personnel change to us. Because of his departure, we also felt it was necessary to change our name, and after some deliberation, and accidental drama, we settled on the name Untimely Dosage. This EP also features the first recordings of our keyboardist, Justin Gregory, a friend who we’d also grown up alongside. Adding him to our roster has really allowed us to explore a wider range of sounds and genres. He honestly adds a phenomenal amount of flavour to this project.
Metamorphosis plays into the music itself quite a bit. Instrumentally, this is a huge shift from our previous works, which leaned more punk-adjacent. We were very careful to plan out how each song would meld into the next, to create a seamless journey from start to finish. Lyrically, these songs deal with the difficulties of growing up and adjusting to adult life. Finding new love for others and for yourself, making the decision to change. Up to this point, we’ve always explored realism within our lyrics, but the final track, Mage Hand, is meant to act as a transition between this innocence into something darker. It alludes to a creature waiting behind a door, ready to strike, but the result is never explained. We’ve intentionally left it open-ended, to leave room for future projects where we can explore more thought-provoking and surreal subjects. Of course, I say that, but I mostly mean mutant lizards feasting on intestines.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Lew: OK Computer by Radiohead
Simon: OK Computer by Radiohead
Justin: Kidz Bop 27
Jack: OK Computer by Radiohead
No elaboration necessary
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Untimely Dosage: What’s next for us is getting our first full-length LP put together. If Mage Hand is Pandora opening her box, this new LP is Pandora immediately realizing she left the stove on, absconding as the box continues to fester and spew. We’re also looking to play more strategically in our shows, saving up our energy and time to make each performance unique and of the highest quality. We’re also hoping to make inroads out of town but that’s for another time.

Vanishing Trace

#Punk #Experimental #Noise #Post-punk #Shoegaze #WallOfSound

Vanishing Trace are from Seattle, Washington.
Kevin Malik – Guitar, Drums, Synthesis, Sound Design
Sean Daly – Bass, Vocals, Synthesis, Miscellaneous Noise
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Luminosity Fading?
Kevin: Every Vanishing Trace release seems to take on an identity of its own during the composition, recording, and mixing phases. We work in parallel, so songs for the next release are typically already written and sometimes recorded by the time the latest release is finished. ‘Waking Up to Nothing’ was an exploration in sound as a means of immersion and envelopment, ‘Vultures and Worms’ was a juxtaposition of abrasiveness against melody, and ‘Fragments of Memory’ was a study in density applied to deconstructed song structures. ‘Luminosity Fading’ is both an evolution of these themes and a hint as to what comes next. Song composition was driven by an attempt to state musical concepts in a more direct and impactful manner, with stronger transitions both within and between songs. The notable exception is “Scrupulosity Disorder”, which is a live improvisation indebted to 70’s Kosmische Musik. Achieving a sense of depth and expansiveness in the mixes while simultaneously maintaining minimal instrumentation was the main goal. Some specific influences for mixing were ‘Still Life In Decay’ by FACS, ‘Every Country’s Sun’ by Mogwai, ‘Fun House’ by The Stooges, ‘Souvlaki’ by Slowdive, and ‘Seerena-Maneesh’ self-titled. Some specific inspirations for composition were early Neil Young, Spectres (‘Dying’ in particular), Swervedriver, Catherine Wheel, The Velvet Underground, DIIV, Loop, Public Image Ltd, and CAN. These are all very loose points of reference, as the mission for Vanishing Trace has always been to challenge ourselves by mutating our guiding influences into unpredictable outcomes, then subsequently dive even deeper into the creative abyss the next time around.
TMODM: What are you working on now?
Sean: As Kevin alluded to, another album is currently in the works. While the timing kind of bleeds together with “Luminosity Fading” and other projects, I’d say we’re about halfway done at this point. With the next release, we seem to be experimenting even further with synths and digital sound manipulation. I’m not sure if we’ll be any good at that, but we’ll let you know how it works out. – Sean
TMODM: Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the new year?
Sean: I’ve almost always been a pessimist, but at least it’s usually dashed with a little pragmatism. After walking away from an awful job that I held for a very long time, I’m actually starting grad school in the next few days, so things are looking up for a change. That said, our best writing tends to come from our darkest hours, so we’ll try our best to keep our renewed good nature out of the music.

#Jam #Improvisation #PsychedelicFolk #PsychedelicRock #SpaceRock

Kiyazami is associated with psychedelic source records, the Hungarian psychedelic rock collective based in Páty, Hungary.
Eln Iván – gitár
Kovács Tibor – dob
Varga Ákos – basszusgitár
engineered by Bence Ambrus
TMODM: What are you working on now?
Ivan: There are lots of projects in the pipeline – writing guitar parts for collaborative efforts with Bence, exploring more African, desert blues kind of sounds. I’ll try to emphasize different rhythmic structures while keeping the melodies simple. Sounds like a lot of fun! With Kiyazami, we are in the process of putting together a structured set of songs that we want to perform live as much as possible. Hopefully, we’ll record a follow-up to our debut LP in the second half of the year.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Ivan: Just continuing down the same old path. I want to become better at whatever I do – not specifically in the technical aspects but rather in the spiritual realm. Writing for other people’s vision has helped me with that.
TMODM: Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the new year?
Ivan: Life’s too short for pessimism, so, of course, I am optimistic (and let’s admit, it can only get better from the last couple of years). I am pretty sure there will be lots of great music coming out. Music is food for the soul.

2 thoughts on “Podcast 2024.03 Sonic Prayer

  1. Thank you for including “Moon” in your compendium of beautiful 60’s and 70’s inspired music. The instrumental composing, arranging and mixing were all done by Peter Olof Fransson of Goteborg. He invited me on board for some melodies, lyrics and singing and I was honored to find such a genius in my life.

    Dorothy Moskowitz


  2. Just finished listening. Wonderful playlist, very rich and significant! Also loved Richard Hittleman’s messages about yoga, meditation and immersion. Shared with friends and looking forward to listen to more podcasts. Thank you!
