After over 100,000 hits and over 50,000 downloads Mediafire has finally shut down my account.
I will still make my eL Stinkeyes mixes available to anyone who is interested. Just contact me through this blog.
Thank you for the attention

The art of the Latin American ballads and boleros is almost unrivaled in its strength and emotion. These are just "awful" songs of love and longing. To me the irony comes from the fact that in the land of "Machismo" there are these boys cranking out the most pussy whipped music to exist. I mean, talk about your ultimate break up mix tape you listened to in high school. This newest Brown Acid installation highlights on those vintage psychedelic sounds of said boleros and ballads and also some slow jams as well. Reverberated vocals, twangy guitar licks, warm farfisas, phantom fuzzes, and some strut-worthy basslines.
Now take your left hand and hold your heart and with your right hand clench the air in front of your face. Then proceed to shake that right fist to the lyrics.

Xibalba is the name of the ancient Mayan underworld that loosely translate to "place of fear." This is some heavy shit right here. In a nutshell, to me, a sludgy, doomy version of Pantera.

One of my favorite styles of music is the amalgamation of psychedelic era sounds with the soul and strength of the black power movement. Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsies blew my young mind. Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and Live Evil was sold to me as "Black Panther's on Acid." Maggot Brain is up there in the catalog as well.

Ok, forget "Winds of Change." Forget "Rock You Like A Hurricane." This is before all that bubblegum nonsense. This is when they were just young fearless European kinder. Long-winded prog rock suites into rock riffdom.

Circle is usually hard to pin down. Every album these fine Fins produce finds the lads exploring some new, exciting sounds that pre-existed only in their heads at one time. What gets me is that when I first heard this record I thought it was some long lost proto-metal soundtrack-esque gem.

In memoriam of Mr. Pete Cosey. Pete was session guitarist for Chess Records, blazing up R&B albums, before being drafted into Miles Davis' electric band in the early 70's.
This one here is a pretty gnarly blues record with some serious fuzzy guitar work. Very Hendrix like guitar voicings, meaning non-guitar guitar noises, and at same time very individualistic because even though this is 1969, he's been doing this before Jimi Hendrix started his solo career.

This is what's blowing my mind these days. Loincloth is a uber-heavy mathy prog instrumental monolithic sludgefest. I know alot of those adjectives can scare and/or bore people instantly but what sets these dudes apart from the grade is they've somehow taken all the best elements of these genres and made something amazing. So, in honor of their recent signing and LP release with Southern Lord, here's their first recorded demo from 2003.

Yacht Rock is primarily a male dominated genre and it took me a minute and some homework to create, in my opinion, "the first" all female (Sir Elton John doesn't count) Yacht Rock Mix. If you don't understand what Yacht Rock is, in a nutshell, it's the soft, funky and smoothly produced rock/pop of the seventies. Steely Dan is a textbook example but fuck those guys right now. It's all about the ladies in 2012.
1.) Carly Simon - You Belong To Me
2.) Roberta Flack - Where Is The Love
3.) Renee Bayer - I Really Love You
4.) Carole King - I Feel The Earth Move
5.) Captain & Tennille - Love Will Keep Us Together
6.) Kiki Dee & Elton John - Don't go Breaking My Heart
7.) Heart - Straight On
8.) Linda Ronstadt - You're No Good
9.) Fleetwood Mac - Rhiannon
10.) Diana Ross - Love Hangover
11.)Roberta Flack - Feel Like Making Love
12.) Anita Baker - Rhythm Of Love

15.) ABBA - I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do

I'm not in the business of breaking new bands but here's a modern group I just heard about on my most recent trip to Seattle. It had some of the dudes from Akimbo in it and it is some rocking shit. Fans of Big Business take note.
