In this episode I’m joined by Nick from The Third Eye. Beyond just loving the music, one of the reasons I’ve been doing Turn Me On, Dead Man for so long is that I feel like there’s a full-scale psychedelic movement afoot. And no one has chronicled psychedelic music as thoroughly as Nick. He’s an excellent writer and he covers all sorts of interesting music. I asked him about a couple of things he’s written recently–one about the psychedelic music scene in Australia, and another piece he wrote recently about music coming out of Los Angeles.

The recent eclipse inspired some cool music. The last set of this episode is bookended by tracks from Redd Axis and Ogua, both of whom released albums called Eclipse. In between we’ll hear Sunshine America and a track from MaidaVale from their album Sun Dog.

La Luz

#Alternative #Guitar #IndieRock

Formed by Shana Cleveland in 2012, La Luz is beloved for their ability to balance bedlam and bliss, each new record another fine-tuning of the band’s mix of swaggering riffs with angelic vocals borrowed from doo-wop and folk; a band so reliably great that it makes the huge step forward in confidence and sheer musicality that is News of the Universe all the more formidable. Cleveland, also a writer and painter, has developed into a truly original songwriter with her own canon of haunted psychedelia that, in recent years, has drawn upon the changing landscape around her rural California home for inspiration, notably on last year’s critically acclaimed solo release, Manzanita, a magical realist documentation of her pregnancy and early motherhood that appeared on many year-end lists.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on ‘News of the Universe’?
LaLuz: This record is about flowers and changing seasons, about earth and the universe and the small insignificance of our lives within the grand scheme of space and time, but also about how overwhelming and glorious everything is. It’s an album about trying to hang on to every moment and notice everything while accepting that every single thing will end. The way trauma can put your purpose and place in the world into focus. About how change rules everything and so the only option is to let go but oh my god you’re so in love.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
LaLuz: The first record that comes to mind is “Liquid Acrobat As Regards the Air” by the Incredible String Band. I found it in my mom’s record collection when I was 14.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
LaLuz: Lots of touring! Figuring out how to play this record live has been a fun challenge.

The Albinos

#AcidRock #GaragePsych #Neopsychedelia #Noise #Psychgaze #PsychedelicRock

The Albinos formed in August 2023 in the countryside outside Houston, Texas.
TMODM: What are you working on now?
Albinos: Doing some minor tweaks to the studio before starting the next batch of tunes. Trying out different pedals, amps, and mics.
The goal is to keep releasing tunes until we build enough support to afford a vinyl release. We’re lucky to have such easy access to digital streaming, and getting our tunes out to all our brothers and sisters across the world and beyond. Still, we can’t hang a “Mission Accomplished” banner until every man, woman, and child has a The Albinos record in their hand and liner notes with a bunch of silly stuff to read. We really don’t care how many lives must be ruined or how many broken hearts we need to leave in our wake; we’re hellbent for vinyl. You can hashtag us on that.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Albinos: Only gosh knows the answer to that.

The Janitors

#Psych #Alternative #Drone #HeavyPsych #IndieRock #Psychedelic #PsychedelicRock #Stoner #StonerRock

Peddlers of heavy drones and fuzzed nightmares since 2004. Swedish psych-rock group, active 2004-present.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on An Error has Occurred?
The Janitors: I think the strongest influence was probably ourselves. We’ve been working on the album for an extensive period of time and the so gs have taken may different shapes.
But also the studio we recorded in. Was an old converted missionary church in the middle Iof nowhere that we locked ourselves into for 2 days and nights.
And kinda more roomy 70ties live recordings, Bristol soundscapes in the late 90ties and NYC no wave.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
The Janitors: JAMC – Psychocandy
TMODM: What’s next for you?
The Janitors: eventually we’re gonna start looking into the next record.

Golden Sunbird

#DesertRock #Krautrock #Krautrock #PsychedelicRock #SpaceRock #SpaceRock #Doom #StonerRock #StonerRock

Golden Sunbird is from TAS, Australia. Cosmic Psych Rock from Outer Space.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Orbs of Light?
GS: This song was actually influenced by Star Wars composer John Williams. Using the flattened second interval he used in the jaws theme. This paired with the alien sounding synthesizer patch really created an awesome atmosphere to build off. The second part in the middle was inspired by king gizzard & the lizard wizard and early Metallica. This was just to change up the vibe and give some energy to the song. With lyrics about meeting alien fifth dimensional beings. Quite a Mish mash but I think it works.
TMODM: What are you working on now?
GS: We are currently working on a third EP which will we will continue to release singles off as they are written. We are enjoying experimenting with new sounds and genre’s but keeping the spacey vibes. We are also working on a rad sci-fi music video for Orbs of light!
TMODM: What’s next for you?
GS: We have a two performances in the local planetarium near where we live. This is our third year performing there & it is such a cool space to play in! We also have a few other shows around Tassie & we are hoping to book a small tour around Australia later in the year.

#Electronica #Experimental #World #AvantGarde #PsychedelicFolk

Hear the kromodelic sounds of Myndflower. Myndflower blooms becoming the many colors of psychedelia past and present. As Myndflower, the sounds of multi-instrumentalist composer Javier González have reverberated from various home studios since 2009 seeking to find a place outside of the continuum of time, at once familiar and exotic, at once strange and known.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Infrequency Modulations?
Myndflower: There are several strong influences on Infrequency Modulations: Iranian composer Darius Dholat-Shahi who did a wild album of traditional Persian setar (not sitar) with electronics in the 1980s, Dom’s “Edge of Time” album from 1970 and other German/krautrock with electronic meets acoustic sounds, Can, and the avant-garde composers from the 60s and 70s, including my own father Luis Jorge González, who I heard as a very, very young child at many concerts at the Peabody conservatory in Baltimore. Also, my collaborator on synths, Brian Forés who I have worked with on and off for about 20 years.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Myndflower: I was a record store guy, so there is a long list of records that have changed my life at different times. For Myndflower, I would say that Six Organs of Admittance’s “Dark Noontide” (2004), Peter Walker’s “Rainy Day Raga” (1966), and the Love, Peace, and Poetry world psychedelia (especially the ones from Latin America, Japan, and Turkey series. That’s a tough question.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Myndflower: I am working on several more Myndflowers: a more song-oriented record and a solo guitar record. I am also collaborating with electronic musician Ricardo Fernández (the Vegan Surgeon) on a soundtrack for a film by Spanish filmmaker Antonio Jiménez; and a project with underground legend William Yale (The Man from Yesterday).

#Dub #PsychedelicRock #SpaceRock

Traum is from Rome, Italy.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Traum?
Traum: I’d say our stronger influences come from the music of the 70s, including British rock and heavy rock bands, German bands, electric jazz, avantgarde and Italian movies soundtracks.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Traum: For me, personally (I’m Luca, one of the guitar players) I’d say Black Sabbath’s first record.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Traum: We hope to start touring Europe next year.

Golden Brown

#Ambient #Devotional #Kosmische #NatureSound #Psychedelic #Soundscape

Golden Brown is the instrumental music of Stefan Beck. Played on acoustic and electric guitars, other stringed instruments, and keyboards. Drawing from a wide range of inspirations, Beck’s music sits at the intersection of psychedelic folk, ambient, cosmic Americana, and new age. Kindness is out now on Aural Canyon.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Kindness?
GB: The biggest influence for me on Kindness is Laraaji. I wanted to make an album that creates that enveloping feeling of peace and safety that I have when I listen to his music. The influence might manifest more in vibe than in the music itself but I hear it. I am going to see him live for the first time next month and I am very excited.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
GB: In terms of music that changed my life, I would point to 30+ years of listening to live Grateful Dead performances rather than a specific album. The way the music dissolves from form into formless and back into form has definitely influenced and inspired me. Also, the openendedness and feeling of ‘anything can happen’ were eye and mind opening (especially in the deep improvisation in ‘73-74 and the Drums/Space segment of later years).
TMODM: What’s next for you?
GB: Prairiewolf just finished our second album. It’s in the mastering phase right now and will be out this fall on Centripetal Force.
The next Golden Brown album is a bit of a departure. It is kind of my take on a Bill Laswell style ambient dub album. There are three songs that began with running drum machine beats from an old Wurlitzer organ through my guitar pedals, dubbing them live in real time. Then I added layers of guitars and keyboards on top and also got a little synth and keys help from my Prairiewolf band mate Jeremy Erwin. There are two shorter songs that may sound a little more in line with previous Golden Brown releases. That will be a vinyl release later this year.

Redd Axis


Psych rock from Toronto, Ontario.
TMODM: What has had the strongest influence on your music?
RA: The strongest influence on this album was definitely Pink Floyd.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
RA: It’s tough to choose just one record that changed my life… I’ll go with Already Free – The Derek Trucks Band.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
RA: doing my best to finish the next album. I have about 12 albums worth of material that’s been piling up over the years so just going through all of it doing my best to make sense of it and piece it together into albums that are approx 45 mins and sound somewhat cohesive.

Sunshine America

#HardRock #PsychedelicRock

Sunshine America is from Bloomington, Indiana Johnny Hicks Kent Welch Yuri Duncan
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Sunship Trooper? What record changed your life?
SA: I’d say those recordings were heavily influenced by the Pixies and the records that changed my life were Surfer Rosa and Doolittle. The reason they both make the cut is that I had a bootleg cassette tape where one side had Surfer..the other side Doolittle.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
SA: From here I’m going back in the studio to see what pops out next! We have another EP ready to release soon too!
