Kick off the new year with this classic 1967 clip of Billy Preston performing with Ray Charles and His Orchestra on The Ed Sullivan Show. Tune in to the 1960s to hear more from Mr. Preston and other musical greats of that era.

Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

As 2012 winds down, we couldn’t hope for a more fitting way to begin SIDE than with “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” from the fantastic new album Lonerism by Tame Impala. This, the Australian band’s sophomore effort, has made many best of the year lists including our own. We love their psych-rock sound with a trippy 70s vibe that turns on itself in a way that feels fresh and new. The equally psychedelic video, directed by Joe Pelling & Becky Sloan, is made entirely from plasticine.
