Wicked cool. Mark your calendar for October. 2. That’s when LA garage rockers Death Valley Girls release their new LP, Under The Spell of Joy. Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Bloomgarden calls it a “space gospel record,” the title of which was inspired by San Diego spaced-out heavy-psych outfit JOY. And the album’s influences run the gamut from Ethiopian funk to spacey grooves to the dark jams of Black Sabbath.

Levitation recently premiered Death Valley Girls’ “Dream Cleaver” with a most cosmic video that just so happens to be a part of their “Live From the Astral Plane” performance on LEVITATION SESSIONS. Catch the entire livestream show starting at 7 p.m. Central tomorrow night, Saturday September 5, at Levitation’s website. Your virtual ticket gets you a link to the show.

Get the music. Get the merch. Get the vibe.
