Psychedelic Glass Capsule

March 17, 2011

On tomorrow’s show, we present a preview of Austin Psych Fest, while anticipating the musical finds that Matt will bring back from SXSW. (He will present them on next week’s Space Capsule.)

The show’s psychedelic set will include music from Spectrum, Crocodiles, Crystal Stilts, Atlas Sound and Austin’s The Black Angels.

After the psychedelic haze is cleared away by the thundering  sounds and momentum of Japanese Taiko drumming, Bowie and Eno emerge with instrumental selections from their 1997 collaboratory effort, “Low” , then a selection from Philip Glass’ symphonic interpretation of the album will bring the show to a crescendo.
