Follakzoid feat. J Spaceman - London Sessions - 12" single
It should come as no surprise to fans of the Chilean trio Föllakzoid that upon meeting the legendary Jason Pierce a.k.a. J. Spaceman (Spacemen 3, Spiritualized), they discovered they were kindred spirits. Föllakzoid and Spaceman's projects share a restless drive to explore the outer limits of music, as well as an uncanny ability to lock into a groove until it infiltrates the deepest recesses of the listener's psyche. When Föllakzoid met Spaceman backstage at a Wooden Shjips gig at London's Electric Ballroom several years ago, they instantly became friends. For London Sessions, the Chileans and Spaceman joined forces for new, live-to-tape renditions of "Electric" and "Earth," two highlights from Föllakzoid's III. The recordings were made in a private studio in London while Föllakzoid was on tour in Europe in June 2016, and Spaceman's contributions breathe new life into the songs.
V/A - Psychic Migrations OST - 12" LP
For Record Store Day 2017, influential California-based board sports and lifestyle brand Volcom and Cinewax are teaming up to release the original soundtrack for their 2015 surf film Psychic Migrations. Directed by veteran surf filmmaker Ryan Thomas and shot on Super 16-mm film on location in the West Indies, East Indies, Australia, Polynesia, and the Americas, the highly acclaimed film builds on the rich history of surf flicks. To match the global scope of the film, the international cast of surfers includes Kelly Slater, Ryan Burch, Ozzie Wright, Dusty Payne and Carlos Muñoz, among others. To match the cinematic poetry of this psychedelic surf journey, a suitable soundtrack was necessary. Featuring proto-New Age piano music by Gurdjieff / de Hartmann, drone jams from Bitchin Bajas and Al Lover, and garage-psych from Thee Oh Sees, Cave and White Fence, the soundtrack and film are an artistic synthesis of timeless music, pulsating surf action, and breathtaking scenery. The package is completed with a deluxe gatefold jacket, housing double pink vinyl and a digital download card for both the film and soundtrack.
