Bleached DJ Set on Aquarium Drunkard’s Sirius XMU Show

You know writer’s block? I consider listening to music a creative endeavor and, yes, sometimes I get stopped up: stuck in the same overplayed playlists, the same favorite artists, the same stacks of vinyl. Sometimes I need a spark to inspire my listening. Jennifer Clavin of Los Angeles band Bleached—who I’ve raved about here and here—packed fistfuls of dynamite into my eardrums during the second half of Justin Gage’s always classy Aquarium Drunkard show on Sirius XMU Friday with hard-hitting cuts by some of my all-time favorites: The Exploding Hearts, The Misfits, Johnny Thunders. Clavin also introduced me to a few new gems, like the all kinds of perfect punk number “Bikeage” by Descendents, the experimental pop of “Godstar” by Psychic TV, and “Give Me Some Time,” a lesser known track from power-pop purveyors The Nerves. Clavin’s playlist acted as a musical laxative of sorts, expunging all the self-conscious lo-fi music I’ve been listening to lately down into the netherworld and replacing it with foot-stomping classics. Now it’s time for you to expunge your demons: download a taste* of the set below.

FRACT OSC is a semi-open world puzzle game themed around electronic music. It looks like Tron with more dodecahedrons and sounds like some impossibly cool Berlin club only 12 people have ever heard of.
