If you’ve been out and about in Austin, or traveled to Marfa for the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love, you’ve probably heard Derek Brown spinning quality jams. If you haven’t, you’re in luck, because this week’s Revival Tune-Ups Guest Playlist showcases Derek’s impeccable taste in tunes.
Derek’s mix reflects his unique repertoire that spans decades of counter-culture and underground music, as does his label, Hippie Scum, which releases lost recordings and compilation cassettes, sometimes for the first time ever. Rare live shows from musicians like Spacemen 3, Sun Ra, and Pharoah Sanders, alongside post-hardcore and old Austin punk comps.
Check out Hippie Scum, and make note that you need to keep up with his accounts @derekdaniel and @hippiescumtx as these super-limited releases sell out quickly, just like the finest hotcakes and richest syrup.
