La Station Radar's recently released compilation features a carefully culled roster track-listed in the precise order to blow the top of your mind in under an hour and twenty minutes (one hour, 19 minutes and five seconds, to be exact).
Sure, this seems like a lot of time to spend trying to blow the top of your mind off, an activity the average reader of Impose spends at least two to forty minutes a day initiating, but consider all your regular efforts to burn off skull and inhibitions cheap knockoff versions of the real thing.
What you really need is a nice Jen Paul track burrowing directly into Cough Cool, you need some Cloud Nothings before you get to Dirty Beaches and Jeans Wilder, and you really need to close out the whole process by staring through the Pink Priest void before falling into Taped Hiss' “Out At Sea, A Tiny Cat and Me”, which you can hear by buying the 25-track compilation at La Station Radar's website.
Until then, enjoy some of the intermediary steps towards sending your brain into that tingling orbit where sublime melodies and pop tapestries swirl ad infinitum.
