Jake Garcia of The Black Angels explores the sounds and history of the golden era of 1960s psych and rock & roll in 13 FROM THE 13TH FLOOR. Tune in below! This playlist is updated with 13 new tracks on the 13th of each month.



Fenwyck - Mind Rocker 
Classic USA Garage/Psych on the mighty Challenge label circa 1967. My favorite type of music!

Troggs - Night of the Long Grass
A motley crew with a slew new hits that landed them so much success. Love the primitive sounds , sometimes simple is the best. 

The Plastic Cloud - Shadows of Your Mind
Canadian Psyche circa 1968. The real deal!

Davie Allen - U.F.O.
This is too cool! Psychedelic surf meets garage meets science fiction. 

July - The Way
Middle Eastern vibes cooked up in the UK circa 1968. This is also one 

Craig Smith - Color Fantasy
My friends Maicol and Nicole just gifted this to me. Such an incredible gem and there’s also a book about his story. The original private pressing record fetched over $10,000. 

Silk Winged Alliance - What a Man Can Really Be 
Unique 60’s garage psyche from Salt Lake City, Utah

Silver Apples - Love Fingers 
Incredible pioneers of this sound and they inspired so many! Any Warhol once asked them to be part of his movement and they rejected ! I had the chance to open for them in 1997 , they were still cookin’! 

Gal Costa - Se Voce Pensa
Tribute to Gal and sad to hear of her passing this week , she has the most beautiful voice. 

The Music Machine - The People in Me
Love this band so much , they used to wear one matching black glove as part of their uniform. 

The Free Spirits - Cosmic Daddy Dancer
Categorized as Jazz/Rock circa 1967 in the USA although it’s something more than that. 

The Deep - Color Dreams
From the Psychedelic Moods LP circa 1966. Amazing lyrics from the NYC outfit. 

Cluster - Sowiesoso
Electronic music masterpiece by German group Cluster. The album of the same title was recorded in just 2 days.


Thanks for listening. See you next time!
