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)

The use of the keyword “psychedelic” on REDEFINE will encompass psychedelia’s role in music, film, art, multimedia, and movement.

Black Mountain – “Old Fangs” Music Video

Black Mountain always have some subtly creative videos. In this glitchy, sun-baked video for “Old Fangs”, psychedelic witches meet trashy road film. This amazing video was directed by Mike Bruce and produced by Zoe Bower and Russell Sanzgiri — a combination of folks who have created a lovely hazy blur that seems like a throwback...Read...

The Aliens – “Sunlamp Show” Music Video

UK band The Aliens have a new album, Luna, out right now. This psychedelic tromp features a battle between the people of a happy, paint-splotched world and denizens of the dark. One can imagine who wins, given the style of music. They don’t shy away from referencing aliens ad nauseum, either. Animated by Chris McKenzie.

Thee Oh Sees – Warm Slime Album Review

Warm Slime is the latest nugget of psychedelic garage sludge from the Bay Area’s Thee Oh Sees. For years, this quartet of tripsters have been alchemically fusing ’60s pop, dirty Detroit-style rock, and homegrown Bay Area psych into a veritable witches’ brew of tunes. Their sound is a cross between Captain Beefheart’s early blues-infected fuzz-spazz...Read...

GAYNGS – Relayted Album Review

With GAYNGS’ first composition, “The Gaudy Side Of Town,” record producer Ryan Olson crafted what would later be the album opener for GAYNGS’ first release, entitled Relayted. This early track was so impressive that it reeled in collaborations from members of Megafaun, Bon Iver, The Rosebuds, and Lookbook. Relayted became almost like a songwriting challenge,...Read...

Secret Cities – Pink Graffiti Album Review

Secret Cities are a psych-pop trio from Fargo, North Dakota. And much like the Coen brothers’ film of the same name, Pink Graffiti is a wonderful dreamscape of complicit artistry and deliberate complexity. Though comparable to other pop savants such as Wolf Parade or Chad VanGaalen, Pink Graffiti stands out from the rest because of...Read...

Psychic Ills Limited Edition 12″, Catoptric

In 2009, Psychic Ills released Mirror Eye, a hypnotic, trance-inducing work in psychedelic experimental rock that was fairly well-received, except for by the idiots at Pitchfork, who gave the album a seriously mind-blowing 1.4. But, of course, when Pitchfork gives an album a really, really bad score, it’s often worth listening to. Such is the...Read...
