Sun Araw - Sun Ark

This is my first post several days. For this, I apologize. But I feel this serves as fair compensation, enjoy. Oh, and the Real Estate link has been fixed.
Buy the 7" here!

Black Joker - Watch Out!

Black Joker is Spencer Clark (of the Skaters). Meandering and broken synth-lines from a vintage Casio over drugged-out tribal beats.

Dreamcolour - White Light

Psychedelic, free-improvisation jazz.

Skyramps - Days of Thunder

A synth-fueled, psych-drone epic with an 80s prog feel that would make Genesis turn green with envy. Hints of post-rock and ambient strewn throughout. This is not your average drone album. Highly recommended.

To anyone who was having trouble with the An When .zip: it's been re-uploaded and should be working just fine now.

On another note, I am in need of your input. Recently I've been posting a mix of both experimental and poppy (I use this word in the most liberal sense possible) music, while the earlier posts are almost all experimental. I'm considering creating a new blog where I can post all my left field discoveries- in other words, the drone, cassettes, and psychedelic that makes up a decent portion of the current blog. The Light That Failed would cater strictly to more "accessible" music, i.e. anything acknowledged by the cavalcade of well-known independent music aggregates that exist nowadays.

I feel this would be a good way to organize shtuff (thus making it easier for you to decide what you do or don't want) and provide a more cohesive identity or theme for the blog. Feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks bros.

Sun Ra - Lanquidity

The father of free jazz. Any right-minded avant-garde enthusiast would be a fool not to add this album to their repertoire, and so would you. I advise you obtain this, post-haste.


Surfer Blood - Astro Coast

Catchy, catchy, catchy. Surfy pop tunes to soothe the soul.

Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms

So here's another explosively huge '09 album that, for one reason or another, I neglected to upload. All exaggerated and grandiose Pitchfork hype aside, this is still a really fun record. Grabbitnao.

Superbud - Nile

Spring time's for scuba...


Oh Noes!

Apparently some of the .zip files I've uploaded are incomplete and missing tracks. If you come across one with track missing, let me know and I'll re-up.

Washed Out - High Times

Ducktails - Landscapes

I've been meaning to upload this for some time, sorry it's so late. Grab it, if for some reason you don't already have it.


Quetzolcoatl - Where Are We Going Sister

Dark, ethereal psych-drone created by the capturing of prerecorded electroacoustic sounds that are played through speakers and shaped by the structure of a room.
