Whoa, this clip from this 1977 horror movie Hausu looks really crazy. I think this movie deserves a summer screening as well. What an overlooked gem. Gotta give Nobuhiko Obayashi props for using tons of avant garde film techniques to make it all happen!

Watch out for the lampshade!

4/20 used to mean something...

The indie super group (bon iver, rosebuds, megafaun, solid gold) dropped the digital download of their new record Relayted, today, of all days. This may be stating the obvious, i.e the potgina logo, but this record is all about gettin' high and gettin' down. Oh and it happens to be pretty incredible.

Textbook Senility

Hey jammers >>>

Long time, no cry. Speaking of jamming and gushing, here's a link to a record that will make you cry for the sake of serene beauty and empty sunshine, while gushing like a gusher in your mouth for the revenant kid behind the curtain in 3 men and a baby.

this indignant senility records gives me the weepies (fetch it here). allow yourself to explore the time capsule of 1958-2009 if you want more tears like man ray's photograph.

i wish you all the very best. keep sticking out that belly.

White Chi Jeanne Vomit-Terror

I just found a random collection of golden YouTube clips for all of the h.c. fans out there. This is a new video from Robert Beatty that is so special...

And then we have some Spalding Gray to honor Steven Soderbergh's documentary "And Everything is Going Fine" that I saw this past weekend at the Full Frame, which was the best thing I've seen in a while. Check this clip from "Swimming to Cambodia":

Lastly, I'll leave you with a clip from the State, which is some funny ass shizzy:

Let me know if you want to take over the blog while I'm on vacation. The going rate is $4.75 an hour. Get in touch if you've got some credentials.

Unique Codes of the Forest

If anyone wants to cash these in, I have two free downloads available from a recent purchase of the Forest Swords 'Dagger Paths' LP. I already have a digital copy of this album, so feel free to redeem these at Just enter the code: oen4crti

This is Olde English Spelling Bee release #48 and it's quite the jam. Here's a review from Volcanic Tongue:

"Mind-blowing out of nowhere debut for this solo UK underground project based in the Wirral in Merseyside. Forest Swords work as a Hypnagogic update of classic UK underground modes, importing psychedelic hip-hop and R ‘n’ B production styles into the kind of eccentric art-pop settings of Simon Wickham-Smith and Richard Youngs, Two Daughters, Dome, The Shadow Ring et al. The music is hypnotically lush minimalism, sometime using synthesised ghost vocals over dubbed-up Julian Lynch style bass and beautiful smears of drone. Forest Swords talks of his love for Aaliyah’s work with Timbaland and there’s a sleight of hand going on here which is comparable to Daniel Lopatin’s seductive use of screwed hip hop styles in drone/underground settings. Here Forest Swords come over as a Hypnagogic Aphex Twin, with the stoned production style of Selected Ambient Works usurped by crude minimal Spacemen/Velvets guitar and some F/X heavy DIY remix styles. It’s a fantastic trip, with something indefinably bleak/lovely in its evocation of lonely late night England. Dagger Paths consists of specially re-mastered versions of tracks from the out of print cassettes Miarches and Glory Gongs along with brand new material. Full colour pro-printed sleeves and insert with a MP3 download. A classic UK underground side, bolstering the tradition while taking it somewhere else completely. Highly recommended."

Shredder Orpheus Summer Screening

Anyone interested in a summer screening of this? This looks pretty killer and it features the late Jesse Bernstein.

Whoa, that trailer rocks. Let's do this on the lawn somewhere closeby very soon. Who's in? Wait, does anyone have a copy of this? Anyone have a projector?

I'm totally serious...

Here's a 3 minute excerpt from the movie...just to get you hooked.

Samba de Morro

Hold up, wait just one milli-second. I've just decided to post another link directly from Root Blog. This is another installment in the Mississippi Records Tape Series. It's Volume 45 – Samba De Morro - and it's one of the best for sure. All of these tape releases that I've heard thus far are stellar, but this Samba de Morro mixtape is some of the best music I've experienced in a really long time. Experimental stuff is usually my shtick but this has shaken me from my usual leanings for something well worth the time. It's really messing with my's great with this music on for everyone, hands down. Please do yourself a favor and check this out. Also, it's kind of trippy with headphones because it bounces back and forth between each ear.

Here you go>
