Office Naps Winter 2008 Psychedelic Pop mix

The latest version of the psychedelic pop mix, streamlined and scratchier than ever.

If anything, people tend to remember the decade for the sitars and sunshine harmonies and fuzzed-out guitars. The reputation is not entirely undeserved. But I am here to say that it was echo, great heaping slabs of it, that really makes things go ‘round.

Anyway, there were a million deserving songs that didn’t make the mix, and we wish them good luck in their future pursuits.

    Thanks again, Danny. I’m glad you’re back in motion. Your quality control is second-to-none. Halfway through this mix, the ones that stand out are Click’s ‘Fat Lady in the Wicker Chair’ and the Advancement’s ‘Child at Play’. The end of the Advancement song is especially gorgeous. What a beautifully lucid mix. Don’t go leavin’ us in the lurch again, mister.

    really nice to have you back…[hope you stick around]..

    this is one of the most consistently intelligent blogs around, and i for one have missed the regular Monday updates..

    perhaps it says something that i have continued to check back in periodically for the last six months?..

    love the mix..thanks..

    ana..

    Another excellent mix that was worth waiting for. You do a great job of choosing songs and crossfading.

    I hope things have been going well for you.

    Thanks so much.

    Great mix!

    i thought i was the only person in the world who knew/liked “click” – that track is awesome. I have the 45 (dancing babies on the flip) and the full lenghth album, which is equally as awesome. My question is would you know if this 45 and the lp is his complete work?

    I’d love to hear more.

    Cheers!

  9. Thanks y’all, as always!

    DD – I discovered the Click from the unbelievable Round Wonders psych-pop 45 blog, which came and (unfortunately) went in a matter of weeks.

    I need all of the other Click records (45s and LPs) now, too.

  10. He’s back!! I’m floored! Great to have you back, LD and Happy New Year.

    You have made my week and it looks as though I have some quality Office Naps “back-issues” to catch up on. This mix looks superb. More comments to come on the music, but I had to give you a big “thanks and welcome back!”

    THANK YOU for making and sharing this awesome mix. I now feel like the world is divided into two camps – those who’ve had the chance to hear “Backseat ’38 Dodge” and the poor, unfortunate others.

    Best,
    Eric

    Hi Danny, This great mix you did 5 years ago has come up again on random play – it is still great. The only possible improvement would be a higher bit rate, but I’m not complaining. Thanks again.

A bit "Lotus Land," a bit "Key Largo," Dizzy Gillespie's "Rumbola" is rarely-heard side, recorded in 1954, and a lovely example of dark jazz noir in an exotic Latin setting.
