In case you missed it, Erik Parker, featured in our April 2013 issue, had a show at Honor Fraser Gallery, New Magnetic Destiny, that just closed in Los Angeles. Today we take a look at some of the paintings and installations that were in the show, again demonstrating Parker's psychedelic twist on pop culture and collective imagery, which set with bright blasts of color, seem to fit wonderfully in Southern California.

The exhibition, Better Living Through Chemistry, is Brookes' first solo show in New York and consists of entirely new work.

Boards of Canada's newest LP, Tomorrow's Harvest, is one of our favorite albums of the year. If you are making a holiday wishlist, put this one on it. Neil Krug, who we have featured in the magazine in the past, shot the single artwork and video for the track, "Reach for the Dead," and if you feel like having a desert trip today, this is your chance.

Reigning from the equally bizarre entity that is Portland, Joseph Harmon is an artist and illustrator with an affinity for seizure-inducing narratives and compositions. His work depicts an array of strangely rendered characters in a palette of juicy pop colors and hues. Get weird with Joseph's work for awhile... you won't regret it.

One of the great Japanese pop and psychedelic artists of the postwar era, we love the mind of Keiichi Tanaami. The artist has worked in graphic design, fine art, poster art, and video, but it is these paintings that have us excited to share with you this morning.

San Francisco-based graphic artist Scott Hansen goes by the name ISO50 when he works on his photography and design works. And much of it has the look of this video. When he does said video as a musician, he is Tycho, the music producer who makes what we would call "summertime ambiance." This is the video for his new track, "Ascension," directed by Charles Bergquist. Enjoy the psychedelic flourishes.
