13’56 / 13’05

As words become all used up there are a lot of plural bands around at the moment. Here is Slows which is actually latterday Wire guitarist Matthew Simms who has constructed these pastoral electronic compositions in his studio in the Kent countryside. if I had a studio in the countryside, it’s very possible I mi...view item »

Dean McPhee
Four Stones

Hood Faire have thoughtfully issued us with this beautiful vinyl-edition LP / part-compilation from Dean McPhee, titled ‘Four Stones’.

Rare latter day explorations by Jimi Hendrix, recorded in 1969 with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles. Morning Symphony Ideas is Hendrix vibing in much funkier directions than you might be used to from his Experience years. Three tracks for you to enjoy on this...view item »

Dungen & Woods
Myths 003

Who’s idea was this? I don’t know whether I’d like to shake or wring their hand. Carelessly meshing together all and any definitions of psych rock, the Mexican Summer Myths’ festival series collates Swedish jammers Dungen and folksy coo crew Woods into one album of live ventures. A wahing and sun-soaked ascent to the cosm...view item »

Al Cisneros
Ark Procession / Jericho

Al Cisneros is of course best known for his work as singer and vocalist in stoner rock legends Sleep and Om, but lately he’s been going it alone with some dubby post-industrial dark ambient type sounds. That’s very much what you’re getting on...view item »

Ray Barbee
Tiara For Computer

The Tiara For Computer, the latest LP from Ray Barbee, we find the skater, photographer and most importantly (for our purposes) musician playing around with synths. Along with a band including John Herndon (Tortoise) Barbee has created a weird, fun record that skirts between instrumenta...view item »

Can
Tago Mago

Why, I nearly bought the freakin' boxed set at Crimbo! Then I came to my senses. Surprised I have any senses left to return to after the last 15 years of my life. Do you want to own one of the best albums EVER MADE on double vinyl, all with a snazzy gatefold sleeve and lovely orange printed inners? Do ya? DO YA?? It's not a bootleg, honest. Mr. ...view item »

Drug Cult
Drug Cult

Debut outing from members of Sun Of Man and Megaritual under their new guise - Drug Cult. Hazy and very very heavy indeed, this is a huge dose of psychedelics through an Electric Wizard filter. Fuzzed riffs that is a must for fans of Baba Naga and the likes...view item »

Ulver
Shadows Of The Sun

Norse experimentalists Ulver rose to prominence as one of the most significant founding black metal acts of Scandinavia, before compounding their sound into traditional folk and industrial metal.

Spectrum
Highs, Lows, and Heavenly Blows

That title is just … wow. Ok. Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows (hi mum) originally dropped in 1994 and now gets a reissue via Medical Records (Pram, Martin Jenkins). The main protagonist in Spectrum is ex-Spacemen 3 member Sonic Boom...view item »

Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the albu...view item »

Heldon
Third

The third album from French psychedelic rockers, Heldon reissued by Bureau B. Here you'll find two discs (CD or vinyl) of long, dark jams, all heavy on the guitar and synth. On the album Heldon ringleader Richard Pinhas is quoted as saying "dark is not nega...view item »

Triptides
Visitors

Six albums in now for LA psychedelic pop people Triptides and it seems like only yesterday they were unleashing the fifth of those 'Afterglow' and there are parts of this new album when I'm wondering if they should slow down a bit and sharpen their songwriting to the levels they reached during 'Sun Pavillion' and 'Azur' their two best albums in ...view item »

The 4th Movement
The 4th Movement

The recent revival of interest in 1970s Detroit proto-punk trio Death has lead to a re-release for an album the brothers Hackney made under the name The 4th Movement. Originally self-distributed in 1980, The 4th Movement sees the group retain the fuzzed hard-rock sound of Death but narrow their lyrical ...view item »

Sun City Girls
Torch of the Mystics

Sun City Girls were responsible for getting yours truly into the conceit of experimental music, while also keeping me at a sizeable distance for many, many years: for every classic piece of Weird they released there was something that made me want to wretch, or something I didn’t understand, or something with a scary title; for every &lsqu...view item »

Can
Ege Bamyasi

I could give any of the first 6 Can records top marks, however the first one you hear is often the most memorable and that is certainly the case with Ege Bamyasi. I remember when Mute & Spoon announced the box set I was overcome with joy only to realise I couldn...view item »

Ultra Satan
Freedom Rock / Anti-Clock

Gothenburg’s Höga Nord Rekords (Andrew Weatherall, Dungeon Acid) drop their second 7” by Ultra Satan. The follow-up to ‘USA’/‘USB’ sees the maverick artist streamline his approach without losing any of his potency. It’s still cosmic...view item »

Tobias Petersson
Amon Duul II and the Birth of Krautrock 1968-1972

If you’re a fan of Krautrock you no doubt can wax lyrical about its heavy germanic electronic brilliance. Amon Düül II were at the forefront of the movement, and this book from Tobias Peterson contains everything you need to know about the band and the sound that could only have been birthed in a German still divided by Cold War ...view item »

Ché-SHIZU
A Journey

Black Editions reissue a bizarre and mesmerising 1994 album by tireless Japanese improviser Chie Mukai’s group Ché-SHIZU. More melodic and perhaps accessible than the likes of Keiji Haino, the music is nonetheless a riveting, slithering trip through dreamy, not-quite-in-tune arrange...view item »

Desert Mountain Tribe
Om Parvat Mystery

Desert Mountain Tribe are not a tribe based in a desert or a mountain: you’ll have to go elsewhere for that. Rather, they are an indie rock band from London, UK. Om Parvat Mystery does at least have a feat...view item »


Nuggets: The Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 (40th Anniversary Edition)

Lenny Kaye’s comp of 60s psych and garage singles originally appeared in 1972, and if anything has grown in importance as an overview of a well-defined golden era, when a sense of possibility abounded, and before everything got slick and serious. The 13th Floor Elevators, The Electric Prunes...view item »


PZYK 4.1

Frank Zappa / The Mothers Of Invention
Burnt Weeny Sandwich

Often closer to idiot than genius on the genius/idiot spectrum, Frank Zappa nonetheless had both an incredible moustache and a career which spanned all kinds of styles and mediums. This 1970 album has been lovingly restored by the Zappa family trust who are slowly re-issuing his large and sprawling back catalogue. At the ti...view item »

Cavern Of Anti-Matter
Hormone Lemonade

The truth of the matter is that it’s a Phil thing. Cavern of Anti-Matter is our boss’s band through and through, having wowed him with the double-whammy of Tim Gane and motorik rhythm. Me, I like ‘Hormone Lemonade’ fine, but given that I spent the ten minutes prior to sitting down with the record trying to work out why I ...view item »

Psychic Lemon
Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay

Psychic Lemon are, in fact, a spacey psych-rock band, beloved of the infinite sprawl of the cosmos / guitar effects pedals. Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay (see if you can spot each one as they come up!) was r...view item »

Carlton Melton
Hidden Lights

The council of psychedelia known as Carlton Melton unleash another slab of wax and have the audacity to call it an EP. It’s twenty five minutes long, that I’ll grant you, but over three tracks. Psych rock is a differ...view item »

The Heads
Rkt!

The Heads fans rejoice as some of their more hard to find releases from the early 2000s are now compiled on one 3LP collection. Comprising of the first 3 releases The Heads put out on the Rocket label, this finds the band at their most freeform, a psychedelic sprawling mass of grooves and noise rock fun.      ...view item »

Zweistein
Trip - Flip Οut - Meditation

Now here is a real epic of obscure trippy magic. From 1970, its Zweistein’s only album, reissued for the first time ever on the same format it was first presented in: a triple album vinyl box-set housed in an elaborate embossed and mirrored sleeve. ...view item »

Here Lies Man
You Will Know Nothing

Antibalas offshoot Here Lies Man follow up 2017’s well-received debut LP. You Will Know Nothing sees the group going just as deep on their Black Sabbath-meets-Fela Kuti thing. On a lot of the songs - lead single ‘Fighting’ for example - traditional roc...view item »

Yerba Mansa
Yerba Mansa

Ah yes, Yerba Mansa: the kind of band where the drummer wants the rest of the band to keep that racket down. As the band freely romp through any non-idea possible in their opening improvised marathon, their percussion just sort of feels it out, chilling hard against the glorious nonsense that is some guitars crashing about one another until ever...view item »

Witch
Introduction

The debut album from 1970s Zamrockers WITCH or We Intend To Cause Havoc!, arguably the masters of the Zambian rock movement that has been gathering new attention since Now-Again records have been steadily reissuing some of the genre’s classics. Introduction is just that, a good introduction to the Zamrock ...view item »

Modern Cosmology
Summer Long

Astonishingly this collaboration between Stereolab chanteuse Letitia Sadier and Brazilian band Mombojo has almost exactly the same name as the title of the recent Jane Weaver album. I mean, it’s unbelievable isn’t it? How does that happen?  Anyway thi...view item »

Günter Schickert
Labyrinth

Günter Schickert is a livelong traveller in cosmic experimental music, having woven entrancing soundscapes out of echo-laden guitars, synthesizers and filters, and masses else over the years. Labyrinth is a collection of pieces from across the years, from 1996 to the present day, offering a brilliant summation of w...view item »

Dos Santos
Logos

Blending the Colombian dance sound of Cumbia with a frenetic and well-calibrated post-rock, Dos Santos will offer shades of recognition before departing for an entirely different sound. On “Arc Bame”, the opener to their new record ‘Logos’, their tapping rhythms mix with the kind of sleep-then-wake guitars of Tortoise; on...view item »

PYRIT
UFO

This here PYRIT is a dude named Thomas Kuratli, who moved from Zurich to Paris, found an abandoned car park and made an album there about a guy called UFO. Through some bits of Krautrock, electro synths tuned to extra-maudlin and some clever, detailed sound design, Kuratli has ...view item »

Lay Llamas
Thuban

There was a time when all I ever reviewed was the Lay Llamas or bands that desperately wanted to sound like them. Darlings of Rocket, the psych rock band have long been the champion of jangly repetitions, making the best version of a taut, rhythmic jam outfit swimming in a sea with leagues of them. I’ve come to accept this music will never...view item »

Fuchsia
Fuchsia

'Fuchsia' is the classic debut album recorded in 1971 by Fuchsia. Long out of print in an official version, Fruits de Mer have extended the package to a double LP -- in anticipation of their appearance at the annual FdM Summer festival. The expanded record includes early, previously unheard demos by the...view item »

White Hills / GNOD
Aquarian Downer

The Doors
The Doors

There’s so much to be said of The Doors but the only words truly worth listening to are those that the band recorded to wax and there cannot be any better starting point than their eponymous debut album. An electrifying LP with heavy hitters such as Break on Through (To The Other Side) and Soul Kit...view item »

E.L. Heath
Smiling Leaf

The first album in five years for rural sound practitioner E.L. Heath who is now resident and Wales and inspired by the hills and things it has.

Credits include bouzouki, tapes, speed guru, guitar-synthesiser and &ldqu...view item »

Can
Future days

This job can truly be a bind at times. “We need all the Can albums reviewing” Phil says. Sigh...well if I have to. To make this chore easier we’ve got an album each and I’ve lucked out with ‘Future Days’ their glistening and gliding 1973 album which was the last one to feature vocalist Damo Suzuki. It ...view item »

Can
Monster Movie

I’ve been asked to write about a bunch of Can albums because apparently I’m the man in the know. So all of those years of unemployment I spent getting high listening to Can weren't totally wasted, tell that to your careers officer. Choosing your favourite Can album is like choosing a favourite child. Put simply it’s plainly wro...view item »

GNOD
Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine

I told my parents to go and watch King Gizzard at Glastonbury or wherever they were with the premise that they’re ‘sorta noisy psych’. Seeing as they hadn’t listen to psych rock for around 40 years, a lot has changed since then, and upon reporting back they exclaimed ‘not very psyc...view item »

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil. With a few of the layers in their musical trifle consisting of fuzzy texture, they top everything off with a big helping of doom. The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up ...view item »

Objeto
Micromundos

Combing the whole world for electronic sounds, Polytechnic Youth has now turned to Spain for this project from Jordi Navarra who blends space rock and primitive electronic sounds. Here he concentrates on simple electronic pieces that reference Hans-Joachim Roedelius but also have some pretty severe nods towards post punk and minimal wa...view item »

Sun Dial
Science Fiction: A Compendium of Space Soundtrax

Sun Dial’s new album is here, and it's a collection of material composed for various “Space Themed” film soundtracks over the last two decades. Science Fiction: A Compendium of Space Soundtrax ...view item »

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recor...view item »

Goat
Commune

Finally, Goat's "difficult" second album is upon us. Their debut 'World Music' catapulted the mysterious Swedish voodoo-psych outfit onto the world stage with its mixture of wah-fuzz riffing, energetically chanted vocals and mystical polyrhythms, with colourful and hyper-kinetic live rituals to match. The pressure is on, then, for 'Commune' to b...view item »

Dr.John
Gris Gris

Totally recommend this album by Dr John, its a real trip of funky voodoo psychedelic rock. Though recorded in California it is a real New Orleans sounding recording. Favourites are Mama Roux and I walk On Gilded Splinters, but every track is worthy. Its not the lengthiest album, but it packs in a lot of quality and ...view item »

The Amorphous Androgynous & Syd Arthur
A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble

Future Sound of London alias The Amorphous Androgynous follow up recent acclaimed production work (with the likes of Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller, among others) with this reworking of five tracks (which become seven) by uber-popular Canterbury psych-proggers Syd Arthur. Available on vinyl from FSOL Digital. ...view item »

Demian
Demian

Demian, like Steppenwolf before them, take their name from a Herman Hesse novel. They are what became of classic Austin, Texan ‘60s psych-rock band Bubble Puppy. They changed from blistering psych rock to a heavier sound that was peddled by the likes of ...view item »

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign
The Window On The Side Of Your Head

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign take their cues from classic rock trios such as Cream, The Groundhogs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Taste. Icarus Peel himself felt that a different home was needed, away from his band The Honey Pot and his coll...view item »

Evil Blizzard
The Worst Show On Earth

Just look at that cover. Bloody terrifying isn’t it. One of the late Mark E. Smith’s favourite bands - he apparently paid for Evil Blizzard to record their debut LP out of his own pocket - the group are in particularly malevolent form on The Worst Show On Earth. A group with four bass player...view item »

Blown Out / Comacozer
In Search Of Highs Volume 1

I could really save time on this one by making this review a bulky copypasta of my previous Blown Out reviews, but I won’t. I’ll simply reimagine what I said, what words the band’s blank-dot space void conjured: I imagine psychedelic was one of them, as was slow, as was wah, as was jam, as was solo, as was endless. And let&rsqu...view item »

Gulp
All Good Wishes

Gulp are comprised of Super Furry Animals Guto Pryce alongside Lindsey Leven and Gid Goundrey and have become rather expert at making psychedelic mini kraut gems which have a certain pop nous to them that recalls both their parent band and the likes of Stereolab. The band have an inventive and free flo...view item »

Seabuckthorn
A House With Too Much Fire

Andy Cartwright makes good songs with his hands and guitar, making spindly and sporadic music in the tradition of American primitivism but with the occasional use of bowing and textural atmosphere -- he's made nine albums, at this point, so it's good to switch things up. On A House With Too Much Fire he implements banjo, clarinet a...view item »

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

'Australia's Sweetheart' screams the press release. Definitely better than Minogue, Everage or Barnett then.  This is Gabriella Cohen's second album of perky and quite crunchy pop music. It's simple and effective rather than thrill a minute exciting. The lyrics on 'Baby' must be tongue-in-cheek because no-one over the age of three could hav...view item »

ANMLPLNET
Fall Asleep

One of only a few bands this spring to sing about the tricky business of sex with clouds. ANMLPLNET is the duo of Leah Wellbaum and Mickey Vershbow, and Fall Asleep is what they managed to create while living on opposite coasts of the US. With its dream-diary lyrics, warm texture and emotive crescendos, the record falls...view item »

Big Blood
Operate Spaceship Earth Properly

Psych/folk crackpots Big Blood return with Operate Spaceship Earth Properly. Thematically it explores science fact and fiction, and the blurring in between. Imagine the ‘70s acid folk of Comus combined with some heavy riffage, then send that to planet weirdo and you’re part way there. LP on Feeding T...view item »

VED
DDTT

We've got another one of those Scandinavian Krautrock outfits for you to sink your teeth into here. VED are a five-piece from Malmo who create lengthy tracks built on Motorik grooves, droning synths and instrumental freakouts. They claim that there’s a big influence of ‘Middle Eastern [and] African’ music on ...view item »

Weeed
This

Now This is more like it. Portland’s Weeed return with another dispatch of long-form Black Sabbath worship. Four lengthy jams on this LP which combine all manner of stonerisms - psych, Kraut, noise, metal, even a little gnawa - without ever bringing things on too heavy. Plenty of fun to be had her...view item »

You Said Strange
Salvation Prayer

We didn’t actually, but that’s fine. You Said Strange, the newest paid-up members of the Fuzz Club, cut their debut LP with Dandy Warhol Peter Holmström after the bands toured together back in 2015. No prizes for guessing who Salvation Prayer sounds like. Fortunately fo...view item »

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeat...view item »

The Third Sound
All Tomorrow’s Shadows

Here’s a band I could, while standing in the rain waiting for the Northern rail train after the one that was too full for me to get on, learn a lesson from. Patient to a level nearing fantasy, they open their record with “Never Coming Down”, the kind of thing a detective would find a little too slow to sleuthe on. Shaking marac...view item »

Warp Transmission

Skygreen Leopards
The Jingling World of The Skygreen Leopards

The latest LP to drop on the questionably-named Soft Abuse (Grouper, Exiles From Clowntown) actually reaches back into the past. The Jingling World Of The Skygreen Leopards brings together two home-taped albums by San Franciscan duo The Skygreen Leopards. Following a co...view item »

Les Big Byrd
A Little More Numb

Alex Puddu
The Mark of the Devil

This is the third and last of the Trilogy cult composer Alex Puddu concocted with Italian vocalist Edda Dell'orso. This is a dark and lustful (ooph!) walk through prog rock, psych blues and what is described as dope-groove.. This showcases Puddu at his most experimental and is a must for fans of '60s/'70s soundtracks.  ...view item »

Wooden Shjips
Vol.1

Wooden Shjips are great. I loved that last album and so did you judging by the amount of you lot who bought it from us. I'm not gonna do a big review of this cos to me it's kind of been out, but here's Volume 1 by 'em which is essentially the free CD that came with the limited edition CD of the debut album. It's that album remastered with T...view item »

Julian Cope
Jehovakill

While Peggy Suicide debuted the “mature” Julian, this three-sided follow-up went all-out, with the emphasis on the ‘out’. Largely inspired by Krautrock, Jehovahkill captures all the intensity and variety of that genre, from eccentric acid folk to full-on psych bombast. The subject matter takes in stone circles, Christ, an...view item »

Dope feat. Julian Cope
The Dee Dee Ramone Story

First time on vinyl for this previous cassette only release from the warped brain of Sir Julian Cope. This contains two side-long explorations that have been described as somewhere else as being between Ash Ra Temple and Brainticket's classic LP 'Cottonwoodhill'. A sonic overload of what Cope se...view item »

Bong
Thought and Existence

This, being a Bong record, might do the things you expect it to. Long doom drones that make Stephen O’Malley look entirely humourless and Greg Anderson not stoned enough, the Newcastle slow boys get their guitars groaning with grain and then start the festival of pummel. Gong-like percussive shim...view item »

Peter Power & Friends
Awake Into Life

Not perma grinning 70s DJ Peter Powell but Peter Power who unlike Peter Powell is a cosmic voyager who has resided in Ireland Germany and now Brazil. His mixes are eclectic, ritualistic with a dream-like spirituality that reflects his restless activity as a producer. This one is limited to 300 hand numbered copies.    ...view item »

Vive la Void
Vive la Void

Sometimes an album and your audience seem so destined to be with each other that writing a review about it feels pointless. I’ll be straight with you, I’ve been working here long enough to know that if you’re one of our customers, odds are, you’ll like Vive la Void. How can I be so sure? Well for one, this is the side pro...view item »

Landing
Bells In New Towns

Landing have been at it for twenty years but 'Bells in New Towns' proves that they are still as strong as ever. They play a textured form of post rock, motorik kraut and blissed out shoegaze that is lush and shimmering bringing to mind other long running US outfits such as Yo La Tengo and Bardo Pond...view item »

Khruangbin
Con Todo El Mundo

Pioneers of vibe, a lot of your enjoyment of Khruangbin will hinge on your own atmospheric contingencies: have you got the ambiance the way you, specific and dear reader, like it? Good. Following up on their beloved ‘The Universe Smiles at You’ release, the group continue their hodgepodge sound, which is akin to tangled fairy lights ...view item »

James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

I’m gonna go ahead and say it: this album is tied with Kara-Lis Coverdale’s Grafts as my record of the year. James Holden’s brand of frolicking electronic sound has always been a favourite of mine, but upon hearing that he’s got some buddies involved the excitement was hard to conceal. So really, this amazing flu...view item »

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard With Mild High Club
Sketches Of Brunswick East

What is it now???? Leave us alone. Yet another album from King Gizzard but this time with a twist. This one is a collaboration with Stones Throw hipster troupe Mild High Club in which the two bands jam out an exploratory album which is influenced by Ethiopian music, Miles Davis and Tropi...view item »

Can
The Singles

I'm honoured. Phil has allowed me to play his copy of this useful round-up of the singles of rather good German band Can for review purposes. The caveat is that I must not touch/ruin it which I'll try my best not to do.  It spans their entire career so you'll have to sift through the understandably ropey early day 'Soul Desert' and ...view item »

The Heads
Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere (Remaster)

Here, finally, is the long-awaited reissue of The Heads' second album 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere', arguably the shiniest jewel in the psych-fuzz monsters' glittering canon.
