Another slice of soul bliss that has been lost in the abyss for years, the perfect psychedelic soul track "You Don't Have To Worry" by Doris and Kelley from '67. Big thanks to the unmatched, dedicated blog Derek's Daily 45 for unearthing this gem, the old lady and I have been listening to it incessantly. If anyone has any info on this 45, please let me know!
Finally back online, been busy lately with work and whatnot, but now it's time for a little taste of heavy Dutch proggy goodness. Yes, that's right, Earth and Fire's '70 S/T debut. Think Shocking Blue but heavier with a prog twist. Rad! Wyld Chyld recommended the first track on the album "Wild and Exciting" which is very aptly titled. A titanic heavy riff with crazy prog changes and great vocals from lead singer Jerney Kaagman. I then soon discovered how good the whole album was and just had to post it, considering this all I've been listening to the last week. Here's "Wild and Exciting" for you to hear below, then the obvious next step is to download the rest of the album below that. Oh yeah, the album also includes nine bonus tracks! Enjoy...

Another piece of slowly growing on me good shit, here's another underrated release from '09 by LA doom purists Green & Wood. If you take Pentagram, Witchcraft, and sprinkle in a little Melvins and Big Business you would come up with something close to Green & Wood. But even that doesn't really describe them thoroughly, there's also hints of psych and 70's prog arrangements that creep in from time to time. They're coming through Austin tonight, so I'm going downtown to tune in and probably trip out!

Another installment of international psych funk from the Stones Throw label, the same people that brought you Psych Funk 101 and Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas. But this time the compilation hails from the country of India, as my furl Wyld Chyld explains it: Think Bollywood hippie exploitation soundtracks mixed with freaky Ennio Morriccone style trippyness and balls out crazy dance music! With Fuzz guitar! Couldn't of said it better myself, thanks for having me check this out Wyld Chyld! These comps still remain to blow my mind, Psych Funk Sa-Re-Ga! is a collection from '70 to '83 that includes many tracks from Kalyanji Anandji and R.D. Burman, the two apparent top funky Indian cats of their time. Check out "Dharmatma Theme Music" and "Dance Music From Hare Rama Hare Krishna." Here's the full album, enjoy...

Hey yall, today we got a new furl in the mix, a guest post from Ted, and appropriately I'm putting up this insane mix of pre-war Vietnamese jams. The stuff ranges from traditional-ish, to garage-ish, to go-go dance-ish...it's weird, it's cool, it's Vietnam. The story behind the making of the mix (which was in no way me) is really dope, check out the story of digging for and dusting off these old crazy shits. Check out the story and the original album art (really cool) Here
