Wow. I just discovered Brainticket. Places of Light comes from their debut album Cottonwoodhill. I didn't think it could be done, but so be it, it is trippier than anything I have ever heard. How unreal is that album cover? I'm loving every bit of this, except the parts where it bends the universe. Oh wait, that's like, most of it. But this song is equal parts funk and good acid. If you want a doozy, listen to the last 3 tracks, all of which are available to hear only on youtube. The album was released in 1971 and their next album Celestial Ocean in 74. That has some sweet space-rock-meets-ancient-Egypt tracks on it. Whether you're into this or not, you gotta give these guys (and girl) points for creativity. These folks love their spastic elastic space rock.
