The Omecs - s/t

Catchy psychedelic garage tunes out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The scene continues to grow in that city, and if I didn't know better, I'd think Grand Rapids moved to the California coast. Surf solos and hip-shaking rhythms. Hurry up, grab your girl, and get to the dance floor for this one. The cassette drops in a week on King Pizza Records, but you can stream it below in the meantime.

Ak'chamel, The Giver of Illness - My Form Has Been Extinguished (VHS)

Texas experimental psych collective, Ak'chamel, The Give of Illness, are back with an ambitious and exciting new release. It's a 60 minute original film on VHS that they describe as a "visual/audio document following a faceless shaman who becomes engaged in a cosmic quest to incarnate the primordial spirits of destruction and chaos present in the universe from the beginning of time.", but it could be better described as an absolute mind-melt that you need to see immediately. Check out the excerpt below, and pick up a copy, limited to only 50, over at Lighten Up Sounds.

VIDEO: The Janitors - Here They Come

Ominous vibes out of Stockholm, Sweden. Over the last few years, The Janitors have established themselves as one of the headiest psych acts around, and the pairing of their new single and video certainly increases their potency. You can stream the rest of their newest 12" EP and pick up a copy (limited to 500) over at the Bad Afro Records bandcamp.
