The aways rad Jheri from Get Off The Coast put together this awesome mix featuring some seriously fresh tracks from a bunch of our favorite new artists including DOM, Weed Diamond, GOBBLE GOBBLE, Banjo or Freakout - and many more. Roll yourself a fat spliff and head over to GOTC and download the 13-track mix for free, and you might as well order a cd-r with a custom collaged sleeve while your at it.
Springtime is upon us! And if for some reason your plans for the season don't include dropping acid in sun-soaked pastures, then the music of West Palm Beach's experimental trio Hear Hums may be the closest you'll get to full-fledged mind expansion (at least until summer).
The group sent over a track from their upcoming release, Psyche Cycles, which is due in the Fall; "Change" is five and a half minutes of tripped-out visual bliss layered carefully atop a frantic drum pulse, creating an ambient anthem that sounds simultaneously synthetic and natural.
Ingest the mp3 below and expect side effects for 6-14 hours. We're also including a live video of the band backed by some aesthetically pleasing projections of their own creation - here's to hoping they make it to the Northeast real soon.
Looks like Spring has sprung a little early this year and we're soaking up all of the ultraviolet rays we can get. We've handpicked Jamaica Plain's own Eric J. Farber aka EASYBOY and his brand of waterlogged bedroom-pop to soundtrack this unnaturally sunny week in the Northeast.
"Chest Swimmers" is a doozy of a track - one that exemplifies Farber's acid-washed lo-fi through jangly guitar work and sing-song vocals. Lyrical nostalgia i.e. "my empty ribcage echoes a beat of a heart that washed up on some faraway beach" paints a perfect image of the late-winter despondency that we've been fighting off with Vitamin D for months now. The jam appears on EASYBOY 's amazing debut cassette, Friends, which is available over at The Spooky Town.

All mp3s are for sampling, and are posted with the intention of promoting the bands/artists. If you own one of these tracks and would like it to be removed from Backwash Whiskey, contact me and it'll be gone faster than a thirty of Red Dog on a Thursday night.
