13 FROM THE 13TH FLOOR:


 

 Velvet Illusions - Velvet Illusion
USA garage and psychedelia from Yakima, Washington circa 1967. The group was born rehearsing in their parents upholstery shop. 

Vox Dei - Compulsion
Solid Peruvian psyche from 1967. 

Ultimate Spinach - Ego Trip
A very original sounding group from Boston, MA circa 1967. 

Xhol Caravan - All Green
Originally called “Soul Caravan”, this German group eventually chose the road to psychedelia. 

Amon Duul II - Burning Sister
At the forefront of Kraut circa 1971. 

The Attack - Strange House 
Haunted 60’s British psychedelia that drops on you like a ton of bricks. 

Terry Riley, John Cale - Church of Anthrax
Two masters working together to creat this incredible record circa 1971. This is the opening track. 

Brigitte Fontaine - Il Pleut
French avante-folk circa 1968. It’s really something special and she’s inspired so many. 

Crabby Appleton - Go Back
An excellent group from Los Angeles, CA that touches on power-pop territory. This sounds amazing really loud on vinyl.

Jorge Ben - Errare Humanum Est
One of the most incredible artists from Brasil circa 1974. This is my favorite song from his album “A Tabua De Esmerelda.”

Sand - On the Corner
A strange German group that I dig. From their album Golem circa 1974. 

Damnation of Adam Blessing - Cookbook
Excellent hard rock from Cleveland circa 1969.

The Monks - I Hate You
100% wild! The legendary American group that formed in Germany while stationed as GI’s in the 1960s. 

Thanks for listening, until next time. Peace and love y’all.
- Jake
