Psychic Sounds & The Apohadion Theater presents
U.S. Tour Kickoff & record release party for:
The Orchardist (Midcoast Maine):
The Orchardist is the new moniker of psychedelic audio / visual project of Grant Corum, from Portland, OR’s out-there psychedelic community MILLION BRAZILIANS. Corum explores a metaphysical relationship with a micro to macrocosmic world. His sounds examine esoteric and spiritual concepts through hypnotic layers of rhythm and melody using otherworldly samples of his own creation, gritty synthesizers and an array of wind and percussion instruments collected from worldly travels. He will be playing selections from The Orchardist’s debut album ‘Mercury Vineyard Surgeries’.
Embassador Dalgoon (Santiago, Chile):
Embassador Dalgoon is the alias of Nicolas Carcavilla hailing from Santiago, Chile whom delivers a fantastic concoction of wild compositions that pull together elements of mysterious electronics, shadowy synthesizers and intermixed zoological sampling among daring melodies that create a truly unique vision for Dulgoon’s one night presentation. He is active in the world traveling experimental science ensemble Nonlocal Society and has just released a brand new LP entitled ‘Hydrorion Remnants’ out on Psychic Sounds.
Idaho Joe Windslow (Bay Area, California):
“Idaho Joe Windslow is one of the most guileless-sounding musicians around these days, a quality that puts him in good company with fellow outsider artists like Daniel Johnston. Using instruments of his own creation—like the gongtar, a cello fitted with a gong resonator—and drum machines he apparently picked up in India and the Middle East, Windslow creates hypnotic, lo-fi, mantra-like pseudo-pop tunes. On records like Secret Fleas in the Dwarf Palace, his LP on local imprint Psychic Sounds, that translates to swirling, warbling self-recriminations and strange confessional tunes sung with a lilt eerily similar to David Thomas of Pere Ubu.” – RH, Portland Mercury
For this tour, Joe presents 8 new insane videos while performing songs off his new album ‘Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud Hud’.
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS:
White Gourd (Midcoast Maine):
“Eerie, hypnotic …. Melodies cycled together in a warped assemblage of modes ranging from Anglo folk and basement jazz to some late night Pagan gospel set. Moments of ethereal beauty blended into nightmare tones and possessed invocations.”
– Carlos Gonzalez, Russian Tsarlag
AFRiCAN DUNDADA (Portland, Maine):
Dundada means “big deal” and African Dundada is making a splash as a artist/musician on the music scene in Portland, ME. He was born in South Sudan and grew up in a refugee camp in Uganda before being resettled to the USA and finding his was to Maine in 2001. With his music AFRiCAN DUNDADA wants to raise both awareness and resources for the millions still struggling to survive in the fractured aftermath of the conflicts and ever present shortage of foods and supplies, education and opportunities. It is his plan to return home to Africa eventually, bringing relief, hope, and music.
DJ Jasshole will be playing jams all night so don’t sleep on it – ONE NIGHT ONLY! ! !
