Astral Vibes' Acid Memories - Special guest mix by The Cowboys From Sweden (2022)

Back with a new mix!  I had the honor of doing a guest mix for Astral Vibes' excellent NTS radio show called Acid Memories which centers around psychedelia of all persuasions.  Here you'll find a slightly abbreviated trip (60 minutes) through the many faces of 60s and 70s psychedelia.  Spacey melodies, driving explorations in fuzz, trippy folk music, tasty French obscurities, colorful library grooves, over the top pop and beyond.  A nice little musical detour for your ever racing mind. 

Originally aired on NTS Radio (London).

The Cowboys From Sweden - Live all vinyl DJ set from Beech Street Parlor (2013)


Flashback to 2013 (or possibly before)...  In the darkened corner of a dimly lit bar, behind a pair of turntables and a mixer surrounded by crates of vinyl sit myself and my buddy Robbie.  All evening we share drinks, funny conversations and musical trivia as we proceed to select and play songs into the wee hours of the night. Each of us assigned to one turntable, taking turns trying to compliment each other's selections, or one up each other (depending on how late it was getting and how many drinks we had) in a duel that lasts for hours.  Many live sets were performed at Beech Street Parlor together over the years.  Sadly the bar is now closed down.  Thankfully some of our live sets were broadcasted on the radio and some were recorded and archived.  Here is a good three hours of one of the many live sets we performed there.  I hope you enjoy it and let the music take you back to simpler times.

And keep a lookout for a new Cowboys mix in July!

Thanks for lending me your ears all these years.  Wishing you all the best.

Evens And Odds: Volume 3 (2022)

 Evens And Odds Volume 3 is here, this time featuring very special guest, the magnificent Alfonso Carrillo (RENDEZVOUS LA, DJ Alfonso's MUSIC CABINET, etc.)! On volume three, Alfonso and myself take a wild ride through dusty music libraries, spooky silver screen themes, beat-heavy funk atmospheres and other forgotten psychedelic delights from the 60s and 70s. Alfonso is Odds (odd numbered tracks), Eric is Evens (even numbered tracks). Come join us as we play musical leapfrog through the golden age of cinematic music!
