i try to keep up with what's brewing musically on the west coast. gaslamp killer has been on my radar for a while, so i was happy to see this link in my mailbox from the good peoples crew.... I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE is a trippy experimental piece... turkish clarinets meet dark hip-hop beats/psychedelic kraut rock/ kraftwerk/ cinematic drum patterns that reinvoke an era when psychedelics were a major part of the inspiration for art. here is the free download link.
a note on the mixtape from gaslamp killer : "this is my 2nd official mix. it took me 6 months to make with the help of my homies ... kutmah fresh, free the robots, and rome of obey. i used my fav records that i have collected over the past 10 years and a few exclusives from friends. the mix is an hour long journey of all instrumental psych beat madness coupled with some of the dirtiest drums ever. it features tons of new and old artists including sixtoo, heralds of change, vadim, danny breaks, aphex twin, squarepusher, mulato astake, king honey & exclusives from: computer jay, flying lotus, madlib and j-dilla just to name a few...i hope that you enjoy this listen and spread it around! love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! glk
