RRYour next chemical experience listening to music is akin to me tossing a big bunch of alternative tunes in your face like sparkle graffiti. There , I said it. Outvocation is a wierd and wonderful exercise by Psychic Ills. Outer Realms by Cave Singers, Further Outro by Salvia Plath, Out There by Blue Faces, Out of Sight by The Holydrug Couple: Well, you get the idea. New music by Horseback, Astral Son, and Between Interval, as well as Lazy Eye all the way from the big island. Can't say enough good things about the great music available this year. Cool Breeze
