Beyond Beyond is Beyond Week: Disc 1, Side B

Well I told you all about the Beyond Beyond is Beyond psych comp yesterday. And it’s available in all its magical musical glory as a free digital download over at Bang Bang Boogaloo.

And like I said, as I put this comp together I found myself wondering how it would’ve played out if it had been pressed to vinyl. So today, let’s move on to Disc 1, Side B of this epic psychedelic monster.

Side B of Disc 1 places us instantly deep into the magic with Austin psych-folk singer/songwriter/guitarist, Amy Annelle. Through many seasons, across many miles, Annelle’s path has focused an elusive “American” vision and a musical identity that is equally furtive and forthright. Her seventh release, ‘The Cimarron Banks’, was written in the wilds of Cimarron County, Oklahoma. Time to be enchanted…

And whilst your head is still in the stars, prepare yourself for an exclusive never-before-released epic from Chicago’s own Velcro Lewis Group. The Velcro Lewis Group are classy men who enjoy top shelf spirits and the Isley Brothers. Lawrence Peters fixes everything that Velcro Lewis breaks. Halden Spoonwood and Hawk Colman are the rhythm section that never stops. Ever. Travers Gauntt does all the guitar work and knows what he’s doing. Velcro never knows what he’s doing. Hawk sings like an angel. Lawrence sings like the oracle on the mountain. Velcro sings like a monster. Lawrence and Velcro designed and built their instruments. The other guys bought or “borrowed” theirs. Velcro is blind. Lawrence is a country singer. Halden plays three dimensional chess. Hawk is an amateur astronomer. Travers is the one in the band who works at a record store. No one in the band ever wears a watch. No one ever wears a wig-hat either, but you wouldn’t know by looking at them.

Strap yourself in for this one, dear friends…
