WTF Wednesday: Remembering Roky W/ A Vermont Psych Act + Miley Cyrus Doing NIN (?!)

This Week's Things That Made Me Ask....

YouTube

With last week's loss of psychedelic legend/Austin native Roky Erickson, I found myself listening to a lot from the psych genre in the last several days, which led me to a pile of tunes from 90s-era mainstays The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre--and their by-products. Included among the latter:  a two-piece that falls into the camps of both the aforementioned friends/rivals (see the doc Dig! for more on the drama between those two).  The Vacant Lots hail from Bernie-land--Burlington, Vermont--and just came off the road with the Dandies, supporting new music released on BJM frontman Anton Newcombe's boutique label, A Recordings.  Check out the Anton-produced "Bells", below.  It's among the newest, and I just can't get it off repeat. I'm sure Roky would approve (and probably did--the two have shared billing on Austin Psychfest/Levitation).

And while I generally try to ask "WTF?" about a single track a week, whaddya gonna do when Miley Cyrus decides to cover Nine Inch Nails, and does so with Trent's approval?!
