Hear This: “Leaving My Old Life Behind” and “I Am a Hermit,” by Jonathan Halper (1966)

Stumbled across this short film this afternoon — it’s called “Puce Moment”, from the legendary underground filmmaker Kenneth Anger —  which contains some amazing (and amazingly obscure) mid-60’s acid folk by a guy called Jonathan Halper. Sounds like a cross between Syd Barrett, Donovan, and “Cry Baby Cry”. Funny I would find this on a day when Jeff Mangum (whose Neutral Milk Hotel thoroughly mined this era’s psychedelic sound in the 90’s, along with all the other Elephant 6 bands) announces his triumphant return to touring. Enjoy!
