Golden Apples enjoyed this book about the original Laurel Canyon ‘scene’ … from Frank Zappa’s Log Cabin and the Houdini Mansion’s secret tunnels to The Roxy and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers its full of LA mythology… of  love-ins, LSD, pot and cocaine, and of course lots of West Coast folk-rock…

Claude Mono presents Episode 55. The show commences with some ‘big name’ psych folk just to get you in the mood but then quickly moves into some much more obscure hauntological break beats via a 20 minute splice-up of the latest MoonWiring Club mixtape  (Ther original has about 60 tracks in 65 minutes). Then  follows some deeply authentic Krautrock with beats you simply WILL NOT BELIEVE are from 1971 and the show finishes two hours later with a couple of hymns… well why not…

Episode 54 of the Golden Apples of the Sun features an exclusively curated set delivered from Belgium with love from Magdalena Solis

…Magdalena Solis also known as the High Priestess of Blood, was a serial killer, a member of a cult in Mexico that was responsible for orchestrating several murders, and participated in drinking the blood of the victims. She was convicted of 8 murders and sentenced to 320 years in prison.

…Magdalena Solis, the band, think Madalena Solis was not actually all that bad – they are a two-piece outfit from Brussels providing hallucinatory transcendental music and visuals in the vein of the Kosmische Musik – think Can, Popul Vuh and Tangerine Dream, as well as taking visual inspiration from Kenneth Anger, and the best in widely seen and hardly seen European cinema.  A debut EP Lady of the Wild Things was released in 2010, followed by the full length Hesperia in 2011. It all started as a movie project and their work remains both a sonic and visual experience.The music is heavy and unsettling…

Yes, we were a little surprised with people calling it “unsettling” sometimes. We didn’t see it that way. It’s simply – like all art we love – a battle between light and darkness. To me, our music is about ecstasy. It sometimes goes into delirium and scary things, but then comes down again, finds peace and harmony, to go off and find new ecstasy. It may be unnerving and create confusion but we see those as positive things, as doors. In general we’re inspired by anything that is wild, outrageous, subversive and delirious. We like art that opens the gates in people’s minds that authorities and mass media like to keep shut. It’s mostly movies. Movies are both sonic and visual inspirations. We haven’t got big examples anymore. We just watch all sorts of stuff, and now and then we see things we like and get ideas. We also like to shut ourselves off from all culture and media for long periods, that’s always very refreshing. Nature is also very important. Most of our work was created after holidays. We need to get out of our little country. Get away from the cities too. We need sea and mountains, majestic and breathtaking landscapes. There we are cleansed from all bullshit and everything falls into place”.

Oliver Laing’s second stint in the Golden Apples chair is a homage to the fact that he’s in too deep with the obsessive listening thing, and wouldn’t have it any other way! From the sinister electronics of Carlos Peron, to the southern-friend rock of Roky Erickson and the shambolic Japanese whimsy of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, it’s very apparent that there are plenty of musical lane ways and cul de sacs that don’t involve manufactured pop stars or generic rock bands! Three cheers for that!
