Check Out Wampire's Check Yo Ponytail Mixtape!
Tonight is Check Yo Ponytail 2 at LA's Echoplex, with New Zealand psych rock supremos Unknown Mortal Orchestra joined by brothers in blog-buzz Foxygen, Wampire, and Gothic Tropic. In anticipation of tonight's hootenanny, the Wampire dudes threw together a krautrock-leaning mixtape! (That's German for "mixtape.") Stream it below to get pumped for tonight, whether you're heading to the Echoplex or getting weird in any other variety of ways. But please, for safety's sake, make sure to check your ponytail, lest you wreck your ponytail.
