You are getting very sleepy

Drift into the weekend with Henry Flynt, Zomes, and Spacemen 3. Hell, play all three at the same time.

That is fantastic. Especially all three at once.

If we're doing sleepy ambient music, you can't leave out Windy & Carl. Not only do they encourage fans to lie down and go to sleep at their concerts, I actually once saw bassist Windy Weber start to drift off in her chair as she was performing and then startle herself awake again. It was awesome.

I have a couple of stories about Sonic Boom nodding off, but it didn't happen during concerts.

That man's feet were the stinkiest stink that ever stank.

Which Zomes LP is this track from?

ryanshepard, it's from Improvisations. The whole thing is on Spotify.

Thanks, theodolite - I like this more than anything else that I've heard from him.

A few more to coast into the weekend by:

Jon Gibson: Cycles
Folke Rabe: Was??
Alvin Lucier: Music on a Long Thin Wire

God I just want to eat so much acid and be with the Beatles.

I saw Sonic Boom live last year & enjoyed his show a lot, even if the audience were a bit sedate.

This may just show out out of it I am, but I forgot there was a Henry Flynt until now. I used to know him from Fluxus.

Aw man. I was gonna say "I like Henry Flynt's livelier stuff" and link to "Violin Strobe" off Hillbilly Tape Music but it's been pulled from YouTube. :(

Now I have to go buy that album. Dammit. The system's working.

Ah Dreamweapon. Every once in a while it will shuffle on in the car, or at the office, or while fixing dinner for the kids and I'm immediately transported to a much mellower, much...um...more experimental... time in my life. One time a guy stumbled into my office gasping for air and quickly collapsed. The next 30 minutes were a frenzy of CPR, 911, and paramedics. When the dust cleared and he was packed up and on his way to the hospital, I retreated to my office where the tremolo hum of Dreamweapon was saturating the air as though the Cosmos knew I needed it and instantly I was transported to an acid soaked evening melting into a couch with the scent of patchouli over Santa Cruz 20 years prior.

Sometimes when life is too much, late at night I'll hole up in the basement with my Jaguar and fire up the AC30. Those six notes saved my life.
