The Unending Subtleties of River Power


Join host David Parkinson live every Friday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (Cascadia Zone) for two hours of all things psychedelic: music that stretches out and offers up grand spaces to wander around in; music with bad habits; noise; mayhem; one-chord wonders; endless grooves; dots, lines, squares, cubes, & tesseracts; anything that provokes/nullifies thought & emotion, and does it without being slushy new-age pap. Kids, your father and I need you to know that we’re in the middle of a goddamned psychedelic revival, coming at you from all around the planet (and beyond); every Friday we capture some of it in a Klein bottle and watch it glow. It’s loud, it’s messy, it’s precise, it goes on and on and on and some can’t stand the waiting for something to happen. But something is always happening.

Here comes the sound, the sound of confusion.

Catch us on Twitter here.
