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.



Catharsis - 32 mars

Excellent French Psych/Prog from 1972. 


9th Street Market - I'm a Baby

60’s Garage Gold from Michigan on the Fenton Label. 


Sal Davis - Quaboos

Psychedelic Grooves from Kenya that make you want to dance. 


llous & Decuyper - L'élu

A great track for the morning or feeling easy. The album was recorded slowly over a year at Vogue studios in France with Jacques Dutronc’s backing band. 


BLO - Time to Face the Sun

Incredible Psych Funk rhythms from Nigeria circa 1973.


Pretty - Mustache In Your Face

This was allegedly recorded in a cave in Missouri circa 1969. Special thanks to Numero Group for releasing such amazing lost gems!


The Grass Roots - Feelings 

My favorite song by this group. You can hear a hint of The Rolling Stones “Under My Thumb.” Arthur Lee and Love actually had the name “Grass Roots” first but they had to change it as a result of this group being more popular at the time. 


Franco Micalizzi, Emanuelle Arsan - Laure (Theme Song)

Excellent French soundtrack Psychedelia circa 1975. 


Parada 5 - Ando Meio Perdido Por Ai

A really cool 60’s Garage track from Brazil. 


Grapefruit - Another Game 

A catchy track from this British group that was signed to The Beatles “Apple Records.” 


The Master's Apprentices - Undecided

Wild sounds from Australia circa 1967. 


Hairy Chapter - There's a Kind of Nothing 

Heavy Acid Psych from Germany circa 1971, produced by the legendary Dieter Dirks (Ash Ra Tempel, Cosmic Jokers, Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh and many others..).


Faust - It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl

Tribal and tranced out track by these Kraut Rock legends circa 1972. 


Thanks for listening. See you next time!
