The term “psychedelic” gets thrown around a lot these days. But for Vinyl Williams, psychedelia goes much deeper than pedal-boards and paisley. Here, we catch up with Vinyl (Lionel) at Desert Daze 2018 about art, recording guitar tracks to VHS, and a surprisingly powerful life-altering vision that simply can’t be summarized. | Art by @vinylwilliams | Words by @gregpuglese | Photo by @clemensmitscher |

🚨NEW RELEASE🚨Sometimes Magazine Issue 7 is available online tomorrow at noon EST! This very red issue features Saba Lou and her soulful new album Novum O**m, with an interview surrounded by swirls of King Khan and words from other musicians in their chosen family. We got the final chats from our @desertdaze_official 2018 trip, with folks like Vinyl Williams, Oliver from APTBS, Jello Man, Pickle from Death Valley Girls, Guruguru Brain Records, and Beak>.

The music of Beak> casts a sneaky wormhole. Ominous and enormous, their riffs cast shadows in the beam. Alarm lights throb in the hull. Beak> is a trio of sci-fi inventors with the might of many. Here, we interview bassist Billy Fuller. USA wants more Beak>! @beakbristol @fourstringer1 @barrow_geoff @moongangs @tempresltd @desertdaze_official

Sometimes Mag issue 7 reaches from summer ‘18 — when we started talking to @vinylwilliams , @nikkipickle , @jjuujjuu_ , and the @desertdaze_official family — to last month — when we started working on our Michael Rault piece at Daptone Studios. And it covers artists in like a dozen countries. And we couldn’t have done it without the incredible Sometimes Staff.

🍾 Huge congrats to Altin Gün on their big day in LA! Have a wild night at the Grammys! || Here, we dig into the treasures of their latest 7inch, right after the Vinyl Williams interview. We also hear how King Khan’s becoming a freak magnet, how Guruguru Brain loooves tetris, and we review two of our new favorites from Minami Deutsch and Khana Bierbood. One spread. Seven countries.

And we couldn't be prouder to give you one. Written by Hunter Savage, drawn by Austin Lotz and designed by Robb Leef, the inaugural issue is entitled Tiresias Honeybone: Bro Tracker. ”The streets are crawling with an alpha male power cult. One man has made it his mission to take them down forever.“ 12 pages. Edition of like 200. @dj_danny_tanner @austinlotz #robbleef

Just before the final show of the first WITCH world tour, Jagari said, “It gives me SO much pleasure. The feeling of glee. The feeling of acceptance. The feeling of doing the right thing, heading the right direction.” We can’t wait to see where his incredible story leads. || Right side: the story of meeting Nice Biscuit at Desert Daze, our new friends and semi-official Sometimes Australia Office. Dig ‘Out of Sight,’ their track on the Fuzz Club Records comp disc Reverb Conspiracy Vol. 6.

For our second interview with Saba Lou, we dig deep into what inspires her songwriting, we chat with a couple songwriters she’s inspired (Zak from @o.r.b.a.n.d and Jared from @theblacklips_ ) and we forage for mushrooms in the forests of Germany until our baskets overflow. The Philly Corner brings you a brief but crucial report on Siltbreeze Records, CIA Debutante, Honey Radar, and a tight T.D. show at @philarecx, with some crazy good art by @austinlotz !!! ————————@traffik_islanda @khannibalism @jjaredswilley @dani_canto_ @simongarfunkle @honeyradar

We talked with the elusive Connan Mockasin about the storm at Desert Daze, his Jassbusters films, laziness, passion, and the enjoyment of making music—but never allowing it become a “job.” It was a supreme joy and a rare privilege. Thanks to Patrick and Janina. Sick layout by best friend and guest designer Matt Gribben.
