Alice D. and Textasy host the international psychedelia show The New Elastic Infinite, and bring it down home with two hours of psychedelic country and western music, and find that the southern mind doesn’t always turn to thoughts of peace and love. Download or listen:

Never name your band “Violens.” If, in the weird science of naming bands, any misspelling counts as clever, then I guess I’m impressed. But when the DJ back-announced the band who recorded the song that had us spellbound, “Violens” was not among the first thirty spellings I would have guessed. And there is a band called “Violence.” If there was never a band called “Violets,” I’d say name your band that right now, it’s a fantastic name. Except that when the DJ back-announces you, it won’t do you any good. People will be looking for a band called “Violins,” another fine name, unless your band has violinists, in which case it would not count as clever.

Violens has no album out yet, as best I can tell. But the song we heard is fantastic and can be downloaded for free.
