Mixtape: Night Sweats

This one’s been bubbling under for a little while. Inspired by humid nights — whether the cold, clammy airs of spring or the stifling swelter of summer, this is for the insomniacs in the crowd. It’s one part flute psych wormhole to oblivion and another part 3 AM anxiety dream – equally indebted to magical realism, the hallucinogenic fabric between episodes of Lodge 49, pandemic isolation depression, the elusive ache of alchemy, and the healing lure of meditative headspace. Time has shifted and this mix attempts to help adjust the listener to the motion sickness that ensues.

Wolf People on T.S. McPhee, Iron Claw, Charlies and Rev. Charlie Jackson

The latest edition of Hidden Gems is an epic one, each member of UK psych faves Wolf People picked a record they thought hadn’t gotten the attention it’s deserved over the years. As always, the idea of Hidden Gems is to highlight those albums and bits of music, that while not necessarily obscure, haven’t gotten their full due in the course of music history and the band digs deep to find some examples of music that’s been left off the ledger. Each member of the band picks a record that’s hit home for them in a meaningful way.

Wolf People – “Ninth Night”

I’ve actually been nostalgic for some Wolf People lately. The band’s debut and strong sophomore offerings were both on constant rotation following their respective releases and somehow a hot, stagnant summer seems rife for their particular brand of English psychedelic rabbit hole. On “Ninth Night” they tone down some of the flute (sorely missed on my part actually) but go in for a heavy dose of fuzz that builds to a chaotic din before being broken through at the end by their folk plucked guitar. The band have a pretty great handle on finding that knife edge between imitation and homage and while they’ve certainly versed themselves in their vintage collection of Jethro Tull, Yes and King Crimson platters, they know how to grab bits of each to find the connective tissue that bound the best prog together. The video gives the band’s live shots a fitting faded album art feeling that seems like a few of these shots could have rolled right out of that Träd, Gräs Och Stenar box from earlier in the year. Excited to see how the rest of Ruins shapes up.
