Psych Records on a Shoestring


We’re continuing our series of episodes of cheap quality records (an earlier episode can be found here). In this episode, we’re mainly focusing on psych 45s but we also included a few full length LPs, which all coast around $10 and are easy to find. As usual, the bulk of the artists are from the US but we also mix it up with some affordable Italian prog and Swedish progg. We hope that some of these record are new to you and something that you look for next time you're out digging.

*We're discussing the meaning of the word "Shabd" during the episode but without reaching a conclusion. After a quick google we realized that "Shabd" means "word" or "sound" in Hindi.

Guitar Wizards


In this episode, we celebrate the guitar and highlight some of our favorite guitarists. It’s not only through epic guitar solos and technical skill that make you a great guitarist, instead it’s about creating a mood and a feeling through your instrument. The guitarists featured in this episode have that skill and they really can pull some spellbinding guitar wizard tricks out of their hats.
