A New Experience In Sound


Poster by Rena Luelle


Have you been to a crystal bowl sound bath? If not than you really need to join us this Saturday March 7th 8PM at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle. Harmonic Gymnastics is a multi-media audio visual experience featuring projections and installations by Love Letter (aka Malaki Stahl and Olivia Mendez), electronic audio meditations from Ecstatic Cosmic Union, Portland cosmiche synth artists Ian Paige (of Planets Around The Sun) and Star Child and a special crystal bowl sound bath from Amber West. The sound bath will start off the evening right at 8pm. It is recommended  that you bring a pillow, blanket or mat to lay on. The evening is brought to you in part by the Society Of Wonder.

Stacy Sutherland and the Elevators


The big 13th Floor Elevators reunion is missing one crucial component: the great Stacy Sutherland.

Bull Of  The Woods was the third Elevators album and was completely masterminded by the late Sutherland.

Morgan Delt Returns


Every once in a while Sub Pop puts out a great weirdo psych record. Think Michael Yonkers or Jennifer Gentle. In this tradition Morgan Delt has just signed to Sub Pop and on Saturday 2/7 returns to Seattle bringing his oozing melted psychpop cabinet of curiosities with him. Come down to Barboza at 7pm and Make Your Grey Brain Green.

Things To Come


Rest In Space


The great electronic pioneer Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream has past on into the distant reaches of the cosmos. Farewell spaceman.
This live footage from Coventry Cathedral in 1975 is some of the best I’ve seen and will surely send you soaring into the ether. Strangely enough I was about to post this one last week…

The Evolution of Kraft/neu!


It is said that in ancient times Kraftwerk and Neu! interbred and created bizarre primeval sounds…

And one from after they kicked Rother and Dinger out of the band (probably for playing too damn loud?!).
