I don’t know much about Hawkwind, but I feel I should as an obsessive fan of psychedelic rock n roll. Luckily, YouTube is filled with tons of awesome rockumentaries and I stumbled upon one about Hawkwind called ‘Do Not Panic’. I had always known that I needed to spend some time to go through the Hawkwind discography, but felt very overwhelmed by the number of albums when I started to investigate. What kept leading me back to them was that Lemmy, of Motorhead, spent a few years with Hawkwind. It was mind boggling to think that Lemmy, one of the pioneers of heavy rock music, spent years in an extremely spacey, psychedelic, rock n roll band.

Candy Claws are a two piece psychedelic dream pop group from Colorado. Ryan Hover and Kay Bertholf craft incredibly beautiful songs that tickle and transport your mind through kaleidoscopic dreamscapes. Their last release, 2013’s Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time, was one of my favorites of the year and is a repeated go to for long drives, bike rides and other adventures in nature.
