"Dim the Lights" from Porland, Oregon's Wild Ones is the type of song I used to listen to on my headphones in the dark back when I used to stay up all night writing and coding.

The video for the Indie-Disco-Synth Pop jam, which was directed by Montana Wildhack, is all about an entirely different type of late-night lifestyle.

"Dim the Lights" is from Wild Ones' 'Heatwave', which is out now on Topshelf Records.

"Stranger" is from his newest album 'Mercy', out now on the Vagrant Records label.

Stephen Hawking

Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has long held the opinion that speghettification would be the likely result of attempting to pass through the "event horizon" of a black hole.

Other scientists have countered that supposition by offering an alternative theory that a person falling into a black hole might actually result in them being absorbed as information and converted into a "hologram".

Hawking has apparently re-evaluated his position and come out in favor of the hologram hypothesis, suggesting that black holes may be potential gateways between dimensions, and even proposing that one might hope to escape the black hole into an alternate universe.
“If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up,” he told the audience at the end of his speech. “There’s a way out.”

This week Monday Magick indulges in some head-nodding goodness in the form of a breakbeat classic well known in beat digging circles. "Sorcerer of Isis" from Detroit four-piece Power of Zeus, from the band's 1970 release 'The Gospel According to Zeus', an oft-sampled slice of psychedelia, is that "from the crate" classic.

A product of Motown's short-lived Rare Earth subsidiary, Power of Zeus were a bit "funkier" than the average "heavy" Rock acts of the era. Don't get me wrong though, they still lay it on pretty fucking heavy, and get as psychadelic as you'd expect any group of long-hairs in the late '60s or early '70s to. Try to imagine Black Sabbath in the style of The Electric Prunes as produced by David Axelrod and you should get it. "The Sorcerer of Isis", which may or may not be as "mystical" as the title seems, starts with a dramatic gong before jumping into a monster drum break. I mean monster as in Cthulhu style! Then the rest of the band comes in like another monster made of insistently throbbing bass and searing Middle Eastern-flavored guitars that wants to fight the badass drum monster like Gidora wanted to fight Gojira. There's also a crazy tempo change and a bunch of freaky weirdness later in the track that takes the whole thing "way out" there as the hippies used to say. I'm not really sure what any of it has to do with Isis or sorcerers, subjects dear to any occultist, but it sure is funky.

Sadly, Motown didn't really have the golden touch when it came to promoting their Rock acts and 'The Gospel According to Zeus' languished as an unheralded classic until being unearthed by record collectors as potential sample-fodder in the '90s. The band dissolved soon after releasing the record, and three of the for members have passed away in the decades since.

I wasn't really anticipating ever posting a Willow Smith video, but this "Wit a Indigo" joint she cooked up with her Diaspora crew is right up my alley.

The lyrics are on some mystical, metaphorical, metaphysical shit, the production is sample-based and bass heavy, and the video is psychadelic as fuck

To tell you the truth, I could always take or leave Will Smith as a musician and actor, but his offspring is shaping up to be pretty fucking bold.

Writer/Director Robert Eggers' 'The Witch' built a significant buzz at the last Sundance Film Festival and I've been dying to see it ever since.

After a lengthy wait, the tale of occult horror set in the woodlands of colonial era New England is finally coming to theaters some time within the next year.

The trailer looks absolutely incredible.

That black goat is everything!

I'm pretty sure the last FKA twigs video I shared was among the posts we lost in last week's database fiasco but this new 15-plus-minute short film released in promotion of her new 'M3LL155X' EP more than makes up for the loss.

In fact, it looks like that last video, for "Glass & Patron", is actually included as part of this epic adventure into futuristic R&B, amazing choreography, and incredible (not to mention incredibly weird) visuals, so score all around!

'M3LL155X' is out now on Young Turks.

Leonard

After the "unpleasantness" of this weekend I'm feeling pretty fucking un-magickal this Monday.

As such, Monday Magick will be taking this week off.

We'll be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.
