Listen To Dr. Schluss' Glaze Of Cathexis and Damaged Tape

New May reviews found under this post!!

As I review more albums, I'd love for you to check out my own music and leave some comments to tell me what you think. The Glaze of Cathexis albums are my more psychedelic rock based offerings, while the Damaged Tape recordings are my journeys into electronica. Please have a listen!





Damaged Tape
Damaged Tape - 2014 - Ancient Lights (coming March 2014)
Damaged Tape - 2012 - Conflagration of Nibiru

Hi Dr. Schluss!

In my opinion "Tokyo Rainbow Bridge" is even better than your "Holographic Universe" album. I like the songwriting more (it's more "direct" and I like the singing style (e.g. on Look Alive, very laid back) and the production. My favorite songs are: Reduced to Dust, Image of You and Waiting for the light.
Eager to hear more.

By the way, I started my own little blog, called

http://homemade-lofi-psychedelic.blogspot.com/

and well ... that is exactly what it is. It features only music by me and my former bands and people I know – everything unreleased until now.
If you like what you hear, it would be great to send me some feedback (of course also if you DON'T Like what you hear... hehe!) and if you could link me to your side.

Enjoy your time in Japan (seems to me to be a fantastic country to visit!)

See you on the net!

Molecules said...

i'm a big fan of this blog (probably the first one i 'followed') - what was up with the long hiatus a couple of months back?? I thought you weren't coming back!
peace,

Greetings Dr. Schluss. I thought that I had already added you to my music blogroll/directory @ http://music-bloggers.blogspot.com, but apparently I made a mistake. I just wanted to let you know that I've got you added now.

You already link to one of my blogs (Digital Meltd0wn). If you would like to link to the blogroll also that would be great, but if you choose not to I understand. Take care and thanks once again for all the great music.

I have long loved your blogs and your suberb postings. My main musical interest is from 1966-1972 and this blog comes through for me many times. My biggest problem is rapidshare. They have gotten so hard to use anymore. Waiting forever and trying to decipher next to impossible "security" letters. What a croc, security my a$$. That is nothing but a deterrent to downloading. That aside, what I have been able to download I have really enjoyed, especially the Gentle Soul album. Great stuff there.

Dr. Schluss said...

Yeah, I have a huge stockpile of Rapidshare points, and hence I've been using it. I'm not really the most computer savvy guy, so it's easy for me. I also like the lack of advertising on Rapidshare (besides the fact that I'm lazy). Anyway, I feel like you're more likely to listen to the album if you had to work a bit to get it. I always end up listen to Megaupload stuff from other blogs because I had to pay more attention to getting it. But if anyone out there wants to put up a link in the comments for your favorite album or two on the site, I'd appreciate it, and the readers would probably dig it even more.

Thanks for changing the pic at the top - I'm no longer scared to come here!

Do you have Beaver & Krause's All Good Men? The others - even the hyper-rare Ragnarok - are available in the blogosphere, but not this one.

That is a band I think you might like, and I think kinda fits your blog. It is their new ep leak, I included the cover and everything. You should check it out and post, if you think your readers will like it, I like the stuff you put on your blog and I love this, so I assume others will!
Their name is Darling's Cabinet of Sundry Horror, and its kind of like gothic folk/protopunk for fans of the birtday party and the violent femmes, and maybe even marilyn manson or Tom waits.

Prometheu (Unbound) said...

Hi Dr Schluss, love the reviews and great for finding new? (to me) bands to check out. I have a lot of the sounds you have reviewed and I am enjoying finding new work in similar genres. If you check some torrents you will find Tangerine Tree (a series of 60 bootlegs, very good bootlegs of Tangerine Dream 1960s to 2007 - these were given the go ahead by TD themselves and even contributed files)
Also check out on mininova torrents 'Avant Garde Project' this is a series of avant guarde works from the likes of Stockhausen to Cage to music concrete and avant guarde electro acoustic,improvisation,classical, minimalism, music and soundscapes etc. All the work is out of print and is being digitised to preseve it. There is all sorts of fabulous work amongst the collection, early electronics 1940s/50s/60s, oscure and famous artists. They do have website.

Keep up the good work this is a great info resource, come visit us on myspace.

Hi ! thx a lot, I have to confess that i used to check a lot your blog before i started mine..thx you´ve been a great influence and such a complete source of music...
keep it loud and noisy

Frank J.P. Segura said...

DR.Schluss, that is a pretty impresive title, I've never had the misfortune to listen to any of your music, but if the artwork is any indication of the sound, they must be on the unlistenable list.
By the way I am Frank one of three surviving members of the Flying Karpet, which you treated so poorly in your blog. Granted the recorded music is not what we would have liked to produce, unfortunately for all, this product was recorded between 1967 and '68. The social-political situation in Mexico was completely against groups such as us, we were persecuted, ripped-off by the authorities and even the so called record company that paid the studio time, Son Art. They managed to steal a Gibson Les Paul Jr, while we played free for them at the inauguration of the Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Company, I hope you get the pun. We were rushed thru the recording trying to finish the L.P. in three sessions?¡?¡?¡? We recorded at the RCA studios in Mexico City which at that time had a wonderful 3 track console!!!! Better suited for mariachis. We had no input at all and they insisted that we play the cover versions, that you so flippantly dismiss. We were railroaded. I should mention that this so called company, recorded us because we did have a following in Mexico even under the represive government, that closed all venues that hired any rock-pop music groups. All in all the late 60's in Mexico was not friendly to rock- pop groups. Having stated our case, let me tell you, I became a producer of some import in the mid 70's and 80's, I produced, arranged and composed the song with the ex Menudo, Johnny and Tatiana, "Cuando Estemos Juntos" it topped the charts in 11 latin american countries and also the latin Bill Board Chart in the U.S.A, in Mexico it held the #1 position for over three months and sold well over 2 million copies under my own label. I was also instrumental in the careers of Mocedades, Camilo Sesto, Jose Luis Rodriguez, Tatiana, Menudo, Rocio Durcal and actually brought B.B. King to Mexico as well as Barry Manilow and Freddy Fender, to mention a few. So I guess you can put that in your pipe and smoke it or, I may also just give you a pinch in the cheek, as you say, to these young lads. I personally knew that the Flying Karpet, was a wonderful group playing live and created real excitment.
Anyway, I became the International Manager for Musart Records, Peerlees Records, RCA Records and also EMI Capitol Records. Of course I was also a well known DJ on Radio XEX FM in Mexico City for several years. I am Frank J.P. Segura, and you can look all of this up to make sure I'm not pulling your leg. I would very much like to know your reaction to this and get in touch with me.

Regards

Frank J.P. Segura

Dr. Schluss said...

Thanks for the info, Frank! If you'd like, I'd be happy to add your description to the original posting. The Flying Karpets' music is unquestionable better than the gigging band that I played with (and wrote songs for) in the 90's, and we had no record companies or governments holding us back.

mikael of Barrett Elmore said...

i like your site a lot! found it today and has been reading and listening for quite some time now!

i saw that you were out looking for new psychedelic sounds and songs. i have a band that plays psychedelic music. We think of ourselves as the upcoming innovators of psychedelia ^^ can't really say that we are though, haha. but in a distant future that dream might come through.

well, you could check it out on spotify or myspace. we're called Barrett Elmore, so search for that on spotify if you want.
and the myspace adress: www.myspace.com/barrettelmore


I'm gonna continue to read and enjoy your site (bookmark ;) ) i hope it will be as good tomorrow as it was today.

Roll Up!

Very eclectic blog! Enjoyed perusing the posts.

You may find my doombient works interesting. Some reviewers have used words like nightmarish, fever dream, hauntingly hypnotic, and one said one of my releases could be a new benchmark for dark ambient -- surpassing Lustmord & Rich's Stalker release.

Enjoy!

Hmm... Sounds a little like "I hope you guess my name." Cross-reference that with "Please allow me to introduce myself..." and I can figure it out. I've always wished that Mick would have just shouted out "Satan!" somewhere in "Sympathy for the Devil."

Hey man,
I downloaded most of the Glaze Of Cathexis albums, really like them a lot. I'm in the middle of finishing up mix on my bands debut album, Masaki Liu (did a bunch of work on the first BRMC album) is mixing it. Here's a link of 6 of the 10 songs http://www.mediafire.com/?ie9njpd0bhcorny , not the final mix but a good idea of what it is. Psychedelic/Garage fun.
Thanks for the free tunes!

I am so happy to have found this blog! Great minds think alike, I guess. I've been creating a weekly blog that covers music, film and fashion of a particular time period combined with a racy, psychedelic novel that I've serialized. This week it's 1991 when my heroine discovers Acid House music and culture for the first time and I’ve featured some amazing tracks and images that I feel represent the period. I'd love to know what you think.
