Citay - Dream Get Together

Although it is still too gray, murky, cold and wet to start thinking about spring, the new disc from San Francisco psych rock freakout band Citay helps set the tone for chasing wood gnomes around the forest and helping the May Queen with her spring cleaning.

As a rule I prefer my tripping balls music to be more dark and sludgy (Bardo Pond), and less wondrous and flighty, however "Dream Get Together" works amazingly well.

"Dream Get Together" might best be described as a soundtrack for an evening of Anton Newcombe being seduced, roofied and raped by Pan, at a Terrastock festival, with only a magic flute and Courtney Taylor-Taylor's phone number scratched on a mushroom cap remaining as the sun rises on the dense, sticky moss.

Or it is just a better than average Led Zeppelin ripoff. You can decide.

Everyone Wants VD!!!

It has been over a month since I have posted anything, so I am taking a minute to throw up a Valentine's Day mix. Feel free to claim it as your own and score some hot VD nookie. A mix might not be the most original idea, but it is a hell of a lot less expensive than roses dipped in gold and more internet friendly than that video you were thinking about making (I am talking to you John Edwards).

Nothing to sappy on here just a few nice eighties nuggets, some well executed covers and a hodgepodge of others. I fought the urge to drop Young Money's tender ode to puppy love, "Bedrock", but couldn't resist adding some Dr. Octagon.
