Stream: Father Yod & The Source Family’s “The Thought Adjusters”
Father Yod was one of the original Los Angeles weirdos. He and his Source Family commune opened LA’s first health food store, practiced psychedelic spiritualism, and recorded experimental music under the name Ya Ho Wa 13. And while Yod actually died way back in a bizarre hang gliding accident back in 1975, Drag City has unearthed a previously unreleased trove of the commune’s recordings to be released on May 22nd. You can actually stream the record in its entirety via KCET’s Artbound program, and if you dig that hoodoo vibe you can order the double LP along with an accompanying article from Caroline Ryder entitled “Meet the New Aquarians” from Drag City.
