Guest Playlist: Deep Sea Arcade
If you like psych rock (or happen to be on acid), this one's for you.
After touring with people like Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, The Charlatans, Modest Mouse, Cloud Control, and Kaiser Chiefs, the wonderful Deep Sea Arcade have just embarked on an Australia-wide tour off the back of their debut album, Outlands. They've made us a playlist to celebrate, appropriately titled 'Flying'. It's full of psych rock — from the 60s all the way through to whatever we're meant to call the decade we're in right now — so it's no coincidence that most of the videos accompanying the songs appear to come from Winamp visualisers.
(You can either play the videos here on our site, or click through to YouTube to watch them all in a row.)
