The Beatles – Revolution Take Your Knickers Off 3

Total freakout original 11-minute version of the first recorded White Album track bridges Revolution #1 and #9 sans Yoko. Presumably pressed to disc by one of those nut-mad collectors that sit on sonic treasures for years, then leaked over the internets. Thanks to anonymous. Check the WEIRD synth washes! This shit is the real thing.

Iasos 0

Love the cosmic vibes (especially the rapturous hands at the beginning of the third vid “Performing on Eleusia”), really pleasantly reminded of the awesome Blade Runner Vangelis tracks. Check out Iasos’ website. “May this site be a refreshing Oasis for your innermost Being.”

Thanks to Greg Davis for the rec (via Facebook comments).
