We’ve already established that next year’s Austin Psych Fest presents: LEVITATION 2015 lineup is really great, from the Jesus and Mary Chain doing Psychocandy on down to Costa Rican girl-gang garage rippers Las Robertas, and a ton of amazing bands in between. We don’t expect anyone to take our word for it though, and nothing illustrates the quality of next year’s fest better than this 90-minute mixtape (from SF DJ + producer Al Lover) featuring EVERY SINGLE BAND on the massive lineup.

“It’s the end of the year, so to commemorate the global underground touring we did— to all the people who were interested in coming to and putting on a Blue Hawaii show in Bangkok or Vilnius— we decided to put together a free mixtape of edits — somewhere between the dreamy record and the banging live show…” — ;) Agor (the boy in Blue Hawaii)

mp3: Lydia Ainsworth covers “Wicked Game” http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2014/12/10/mp3-lydia-ainsworth-covers-wicked-game/ http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2014/12/10/mp3-lydia-ainsworth-covers-wicked-game/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 15:20:37 +0000 Chris http://www.gorillavsbear.net/?p=346673 Read more »]]>

We’ve established that we’re unabashed fans of the “Wicked Game” cover in general, whether the take is eerie and drugged out, super dream-wavy, or even sultry-but-straightforward-and-kind-of-unremarkable. But this haunting Lydia Ainsworth version might be the most beautiful + elegant rendition of the late ’80s classic yet; download it below:

Following last week’s definitive albums of the year list, we present our favorite songs of 2014. We went deep this year on this one. Disclaimer: some of these aren’t technically 2014 releases (notably, a few of the PC Music-affiliated jams) so I guess we’re going with the nebulous “year of impact” concept here. Check the list + follow along with a nearly comprehensive 5-hour spotify playlist after the jump, and as always, we’d love to hear your favorites too.
