The Legacy of the Tower Recordings

The enormous Matt Valentine interview (conducted by the venerable Byron Coley) in the latest Arthur magazine sent me back to Tower Recordings, the pioneering psych folk collective that Valentine was a part of back in the late 90s/early 00s. The group has since splintered into many, many other projects, several of which are featured in this handy mix via the Free Music Archive. MV & EE, PG Six, Samara Lubelski, Hall Of Fame … all good stuff, all worth checking out.

Tonight kicks of the Sweet Tea Pumpkin Pie festival in DC, featuring a dizzying roster of more than 200 bands at venues all over town. One of the events we’re most looking forward to is the Twin Lakes Records showcase at Velvet tomorrow night. Starting at 4pm, the night will swell with psych rock, folk and compositional noise, including a performance by Drag City’s P.G. Six. A few months ago, we made it out to a very intimate performance at DC9, and featured them in a Bite Sized Set. Check out the clip above and make sure you
