Track Of The Day: The Dream Syndicate, “Black Light”

This latest track from paisley-draped LA veteran voyagers Dream Syndicate may only be only 4-minutes-and-39 seconds long but it feels like a 9-minute epic. It searches and glides, dips and weaves, menaces and hovers over a twilight metropolis of alluring… Continue Reading →

The Madcap Rated, Complete Syd Barrett Volume 4: “The Scarecrow”

“The Scarecrow” by Pink Floyd, Released June 16th, 1967 We are four tracks deep on The Madcap Rated Series, and it pains me to say that this is the first track in Syd’s catalog that I don’t enjoy. It’s also… Continue Reading →
