Cosmic American Music Part 2

Cosmic_american_music_arkivetpodcast

Here we return yet again to the concept of Cosmic American Music, as we didn’t have the time to play you all of the tracks in part 1. In this second part, we mix lesser-known records with some true classics as well as revisiting a few artists that we have already listened to in pervious episodes. We also highlight two great new acts, James Matthew VII and Dalton Correction. James Matthew VII will have his debut LP “Cosmic Folk Ballads” released next year and we listen to his composition “Stoned When I Pray”, while Dalton Correction put out their debut in 2017 on Possible Records, and from that one we play “Yarará”.

It's Completely Hypnotic

We’re thrilled to finally have our friend Anders Alexander with us on the show. Anders is a record collector and dealer from Southern Sweden (now living in Stockholm) who’s been hunting records since the 80s. Nowadays he sells records under the name Vinylkatten at record fairs and in his own pop-up record store. For the show, he brought an eclectic mix of records, ranging from under-the-radar gems and dollar-bin alerts to psych grails, and we promise an episode filled with psychedelic saxophones, cocaine flutes (Anders favorite instrument), troglodyte rock and hypnotic vibes.

We’ve been doing this podcast for over five years now and recorded 70 episodes, including 23 interviews with other collectors and musicians. Over the years some have asked us about how we got into collecting records, so in this episode we’re going to tell you about our personal musical journeys and how we got deeper into the psychedelic rabbit hole. The records in this episode represent a development in terms of taste or collecting and while my selection is all about the psych classics, Viktor throws in a wild bunch of songs.
