Creepxotica featuring Rachel DeShon
Dionysus Records ID1233171 10″ EP/Digital
What began as the “Yma Sumac, the Legend, the Woman the Music” symposium at Tiki Oasis 14 featuring “educator” El Vez (aka Robert Lopez of The Zeros) with Seattle opera singer Rachel DeShon and San Diego’s Creepxotica, has resulted in this extremely off-the-charts 10″ vinyl exotica “tribute” to the Peruvian/Hollywood exotica goddess.
Lopez saw an opportunity to pair the multi-octave DeShon with Creepxotica as part of his talk about the legendary Sumac. The rehearsals and symposium went so well, it was decided that the group would record tracks for DeShon to sing on. And here they are — five mind-bending exotica fueled psychedelic-tinged tracks with DeShon’s insanely beautiful and confident vocals.
Side A of this record are all Mambo! era Sumac covers the likes of which you’ve never imagined performed by anyone but Yma herself. Side B contains two absolute killer Creepxotica originals with DeShon’s vocals bringing them to new dimensions.

The Creatures of the Golden Dawn – Dark was the Night, Cold was the Ground
Edition of 500 on gold vinyl with digital download coupon $9.95 limited time price
Arriving after the ’80s garage/psych revival, Bethlehem’s Creatures of the Golden Dawn came on the scene with a lot more attitude than did earlier similar-minded combos. Lead by vocalist Mark Smith – their knife-sharp punky garage-meets-the-early-days-of-psychedelia tunes were filled with hooky riffs and always shadowed by varying degrees of darkness. The Creatures amassed a cult following in the States and Europe, and were played heavily on Little Steven’s Underground Garage syndicated radio show.
Dark Was The Night…Cold Was The Ground is a collection of what the late Mark Smith felt were the group’s best recorded efforts and includes tracks from their CD releases as well as their 7″ EPs. Find it in the Dionysus Records online shop at this link
