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.



Kaleidoscope - Dive Into Yesterday 
Choice British Psychedelia circa 1967, these guys were the epitome of Carnaby Steet. 

Rodriguez - Only Good For Conversation
Very sad to lose this legend this month. We are lucky to have his wonderful music to remember him by. Tribute to the king. Special thanks to Matt from Light in the Attic records for helping to bring him out of obscurity. 

The Rattles - The Witch
German psychedelic beat music circa 1970. 

Morning Dew - No More 
Raw American 60’s Garage , my favorite sound. 

Them - Square Room
A great raga from this talented Irish outfit. I recently read that Van Morrison requires a “full English” breakfast on his rider. 

The Bluestars - Social End Product 
Killer garage punk from New Zealand that would make the Sex Pistols blush. This one rips! And way ahead of its time. 

Valeria Mongardini - Mujer Americana
My favorite version of American Woman done South American Style 

Swamp Rats - I’m Going Home 
This NYC band normally has the meanest versions of some of my favorite garage punk songs but this one is an easy going track with a fantastic bass line and groove. 

The Easy Beats - Sorry
Australian gold , they inspired a young AC/DC and so many others, including myself. Rhythm guitarist George Young is actually the older brother to Angus and Malcom of AC/DC. 

Living Daylights - Up So High 
The heavy sound of British Psychedelia circa 1967. The band came together when two groups who were the toast of the Essex town of Harlow joined forces.

Stalk Forrest Group - Donovan’s Monkey
Pre Blue Oyster Cult with a young Buck Darma; one of my favorite guitarists of all time. 

Nurt - Morze Ognia
A very talented psychedelic progressive outfit from Poland circa 1970. It was January of 1972 when Nurt, a four-member progressive rock band from Poland, took part in a festival of avant-garde music. The group won a recording session at a professional Studio M-1 at Polish Radio headquarters in Warsaw. 

Buffalo Springfield - Expecting To Fly 
Dreamy sounds that take you on a wonderful musical journey. This one has that Neil Young magic.
