The boardroom at Reverberation Appreciation Society has issued an official treaty on the initial line up of artists with the opportunity to take the stage at Austin Psych Fest 4.
Upon review of this line-up, the consensus of the universe is that it is seriously baddass. Upon release of the next line-up announcement to come in January, the consensus status of said universe may be amended to include far out AND groovy.
You owe it to yourself to look into all of these rock and/or roll outfits – there’s a great selection of video clips here. The site is called Do512, which is almost certainly a fan page for the first Van Hagar album.
Dig the insane variety of sounds! Just get a load of this PONTIAK video, at least:
C’MON! Watch it again if you have to. How can you not be stoked on this line-up? The mind boggles. The mind growls – The Growlers! Cloudland Canyon! Sleepy Sun? WHITE HILLS?!?!? GettheheckoutofMYface – this line up is insane.
That band The Black Angels plays every tootin’ year, though! What’s up with that?
I’m ready for a Black Ryder super-kick!
Who knows what the next release of artists with the good fortune to bring their craft to the stage will bring? You don’t need my recommendations for at least a hundred reasons, two of which being: A) I LIKE FLEETWOOD MAC. And, B) these decisions are made by the members of the RAS only, as it should be. As you know, my RAS membership application has been declined (something about really liking FLEETWOOD MAC, or maybe it was MIDDAY VEIL? Not GULL, though. Everybody knows GULL rules. Unclear).
Anyway, I will make one official personal/musical endorsement …
… wait for it …
… some other time.
Until then, I will leave you with these two videos. They are super effects-heavy. In fact, they’re not videos at all – the footage has been slowed down to the point that they are not moving images at all. They’re just images. But they can still be moving …
