For the last seven years, the Aquarium Drunkard has lived by the credo: just the good shit. This not only explains his fandom of “Expensive Shit,” but also the way in which his blog avoids ephemeral trends and any desire to fit into whatever bullshit you’re being told is brilliant this week. A quintessential example of why they might be my favorite website is their new podcast: Side Transmission. 12 jams. Most obscure. All great. No fat. It also includes a song from South Korean psych rock God, Shin Joong Hyun, who is tangentially described in my latest LA Weekly column about Light in the Attic Records. Turn on. Tune in. Drop it as though it were at a reasonably warm temperature.
