Our friends at the trippiest, most beautiful fest around continue to inspire by outdoing themselves once again on this year’s Austin Psych Fest presents: LEVITATION 2015 lineup: starring the Jesus and Mary Chain (performing Psychocandy), Tame Impala, the Flaming Lips, Spiritualized, Melody’s Echo Chamber, Mac DeMarco, Thee Oh Sees, FUZZ, White Fence, Las Robertas, and many more, all at the scenic + serene Carson Creek Ranch on the banks of the Colorado River.
The fest has hooked us up with a pair of weekend passes + DELUXE UPGRADES to give away: to win, just like the fest on Facebook + tell us who you’re most excited about seeing OR who you’d like to see added to this year’s bill in the comments below, and I’ll pick a winner when the fest announces the next round of bands in early ’15. In the meantime, you can now grab weekend passes right here.
In today’s edition of “Checking in with Johnny Jewel”: the prolific producer is still going strong (and being very generous) over on soundcloud. Today, he drops Glass Candy‘s cover of Herb Alpert‘s famously-sampled 1979 classic “Rise“, along with a sweet story about the song’s creation.
He also posted up the alternate version of “Kill For Love“, taken from Chromatics’ 2012 “mixed collage” Running From the Sun, to coincide with the news that the mix is now available on vinyl for the first time. Grab it here on semi-clear cherry red 180 gram vinyl.
