Podcast 2022.16 Immaterial Graffiti

December 15, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

Turn Me On, Dead Man returns to the one-hour format as the year winds down. My pace has slowed in recent weeks as everyone in my household has been sick at one time or another. It seems like I’ve been sick the longest–my whole body is sore from coughing. This episode is divided into three parts. The first part is recent psych, followed by notable reissues and closing with extended tracks.

After a 2+ month hiatus, Turn Me On, Dead Man is back with two hours of recent psychedelia. This episode is divided into three parts. In the first hour I cover psychedelic tracks released during the last few months, followed by a short set of notable reissues, and finally I round out the episode with some extended tracks, improvised and otherwise.

Podcast 2022.13 When Worlds Collide

July 22, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

I guess I’ve always thought of psychedelic rock as being a genre on its own but psychedelia crosses genre boundaries and in this episode I’ll be playing some jazz, ambient and even a country track that are psychedelic. It seems like these days a vinyl release carries with it prestige and seems to make it more of an event. The LP format emphasizes the cover art but the records themselves frequently have really stunning designs.

Well, COVID-19 finally got me. I managed to avoid it for more than two years but everyone in my household has gotten sick in the last couple of weeks. Our symptoms were relatively mild, I’m happy to say, but it’s still been difficult. On the positive side, it’s given me a chance to listen to a lot of new music.

Podcast 2022.10 Black Swan Lane / Unknown Road

May 17, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

I took a road trip recently and my GPS was behaving strangely. It happened a few times where my GPS was slow to identify roads I was traveling on–and I don’t mean back roads, I mean Interstate 95. I thought that was a little odd and then I noticed the street sign a short distance away from my destination: Black Swan Lane. There’s been some chatter recently about “black swan events” and it just seemed to fit somehow.

Podcast 2022.08 On The Line: Psychedelia in Ukraine

April 11, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

This episode features garage rock, stoner and psychedelic bands from Ukraine. The Russian invasion of Ukraine began in February 24th and it looks to have stalled without taking any major cities in Ukraine. But even so, the Russian invasion has led to a horrific amount of death and destruction as well as profound upheaval in the lives of Ukrainians. As of today some 4 million Ukrainians have left the country and millions more have been displaced.

Podcast 2022.07 Mantras For Peace: A Message from Psychedelic Source Records

March 30, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

The title of this episode comes from the most recent release from Psychedelic Source Records, a remarkable artistic collective based in Páty, Hungary, playing mainly improvised music. They’re incredibly prolific, with more than 50 releases since they started putting out albums around 2017. A number of different bands play under the Psychedelic Source banner, and I’ve put together a playlist for this episode made up of tracks they’ve put out in the last year or so.

Podcast 2022.06 The Other Side: Psychedelia in Australia & New Zealand

March 17, 2022 [Notes/Interviews] [Mixcloud]

In the last few episodes I’ve been exploring psychedelia from various parts of the world. The playlist in this episode is made up of new psychedelic music from Australia and New Zealand. I’ve noticed over the last couple of years that Australia, in particular, has a thriving psychedelic scene and this episode really bears that out. Not to take anything away from New Zealand or anywhere else for that matter, it’s just that so much good music is coming out of Australia and it’s really been enjoyable corresponding with the artists.
