Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Hey, lost soul. Word is, you've been searching for some kind of trippy party shaman to lead you on a spirit quest to the center of your very own inner outer space. True? OK, then, it's totally time you took a tab of that Space Voodoo Crystal stuff. Hence, today's free MP3, "Mutations." 

Like 'shrooms on E, this local tropical/dub/hip-hop crew from the future ("Miami 2099") makes a druggy sound that blends both psilocybin's hallucinogenic brainblast and MDMA's oversexed synthetic edge. Or, if you'd rather ask the band, SVC sounds something like: "You and Bone Thugs and the ghosts of their grandmothers just simultaneously beat Mega Mans 1-6 during a solar eclipse, inside of a crystal sphinx smoking a blunt." 

So, go ahead and get "Mutations," then complete your collection of SVC sci-fi dance skullfuckery by scoring a free copy of the full demo here. It's a six-song digital slab of weird instrumental tracks (like "Black Unicorn" and "Early Earth") anchored by "psychedelic booty beats." Welcome, lost soul, to inner outer space. 

Presented by Roofless Records. With Self & Other, Stead and His Larson, and Skunk Ape. Saturday, November 14. Sweat Records, 5505 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Show starts at 8 p.m., and admission costs $3. 305-342-0953; sweatrecordsmiami.com

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
