The term “psychedelic” is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, “soul”) and δηλοῦν (deloun, “to manifest”), translating to “soul-manifesting”. A psychedelic experience is characterized by the striking perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences including changes of perception such as hallucinations, synesthesia, altered states of awareness or focused consciousness, variation in thought patterns, trance or hypnotic states, mystical states, and other mind alterations. (Wikipedia)

Unicycle Loves You – “Justine” Music Video

Unicycle Loves You might craft songs with straight-forward pop hooks and beats, but there’s always something more complicated under the surface. In the case of “Justine”, the dissonant guitarwork is certainly hypnotic. This video is just the same — seemingly straightforward initially, but breaking down into bloody messes and spastic colorations. Directed by Anthony Dixon....Read...

Crystal Fighters – “In The Summer” Music Video

This amazing summertime jam — appropriately titled “In The Summer” — is a spastic ass creation shot on a Canon 7D, featuring a giant globe of a man and rainbow-colored whirling dervishes whirling around anything they could possibly whirl around! Spaz spaz spaz! (Or at least I think they’re whirling dervishes. In any case, it’s...Read...
