Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters...

Recorded in just five days immediately off the back of an exhausting period of touring that lasted almost a year, Monsters Eating People Eating Monsters… (title intended to be repeated ad infinitum!) shows Frankie and the Witch Fingers in blistering, road-hardened form. More intense and ambitious than anything they’ve recorded before, their psych-garage sound goes from strength to strength. 

Richard Dawson
2020

Despite album artwork and a title that seem like they belong to an Ed Sheeran record, '2020' in fact belongs to the UK's other great singer songwriter slash troubadour. I am of course talking about the wonderful Richard Dawson, who has helped drag the UK folk tradition into 2020 and beyond. 

Kennelmus
Folkstone Prism

Released in 1971, Folkstone Prism by Kennelmus has been as rare as hens’ teeth since going out of print in the mid-Nineties. Five tracks of psychedelic weirdness interspersed with backwards instrumentals, field recordings, cut-up garbled vox and fake radio ads, it now gets a new life with this vinyl re-issue, containing an eight-page booklet. 

Pink Floyd
Relics

Few best ofs from the psychedelic era retain their usefulness as well as Relics - an ironic title, given that it almost apologises for four-year-old material that’s now half a century old. The 1971 compilation compiled the essential Syd Barrett-era singles See Emily Play and Arnold Layne along with choice album tracks and b-sides. The latter include the original version of Careful with That Axe, Eugene, Roger Waters’ Julia Dream, and Rick Wright’s Paintbox. In fact Wright emerges as the surprise hero with that track and the lovely Remember a Day, as Waters is still finding his feet with the then previously unreleased Biding My Time. Floyd’s struggle to find a direction following Barrett’s departure yielded mixed results, but this comp remains a cohesive listen, with impeccable track selections and sequencing.

Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Bananagun
The True Story of Bananagun

Influenced by primal garage-rock and the hypnotic grooves of African and South American music, Melbourne’s Bananagun have evolved from the home-made ideas of guitarist, vocalist and flautist Nick van Bakel to a full five-piece set-up. Their new debut album, The True Story of Bananagun, was born from extended jam sessions and presents a grand vision for their self-professed ‘global tropicalia’. 

Hello Forever
Whatever It Is

Seemingly inspired by the surroundings of their native Topanga - the Californian location in which Neil Young recorded After The Gold Rush and Captain Beefheart came up with Trout Mask Replica - Hello Forever manage the nifty trick of channeling the invention of the Sixties without shamelessly ripping it off with their debut album Whatever It Is. Vinyl versions come with a bonus 7” single 'Everything Is So Hard'.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Third World Pyramid

Their previous album 'Revelation' was to my mind one of the finest of their career so we are all hoping that the Brian Jonestown Massacre's late renaissance continues with this their 15th studio album. Anton hasn't exactly been sat around in the meantime, there's been tours, albums with Tess Parks, the 'Mini Album Thingy Wingy' and lots more besides. When the dust settles Brian Jonestown should be rights be voted one of the best bands of this generation.  

The Growlers
Not. Psych!

You may think the Growlers would play grungy psych rock and garage but as the title suggests, the band are a much sunnier proposition. Their sound is more in tune with surf and beach pop taking influence from the twangy likes of the Ventures to produce sunny day pop songs high on melodicism and low on dirt. They've squeezed seven tracks onto this EP which mysteriously comes out on post-classical imprint 130701.

The Moonlandingz
Interplanetary Class Classics

The Moonlandingz are a kerrrazy side-project band, comprised of two members each from Fat White Family and Eccentronic Research Council. Oh, and members of The Village People and Yoko Ono also feature. Debut Interplanetary Class Classics is a messy electro-indie-punk pile-up with its tongue in its cheek. Out on Transgressive.

Sven Wunder
Eastern Flowers (Doğu Çiçekleri)

Translating as Eastern Flowers in Turkish, Doğu Çiçekleri was the beginning of Swedish avant-garde artist Sven Wunder’s career arc. Painting an impression of the flora and wildlife of the Mediterranean / Levantine area through sound, it drew on Turkish rock and European jazz-funk to appeal to fans of psychedelia, prog-rock and electronica alike.

Dreamtime
Tidal Mind

Much-anticipated fourth studio album from Australian psychedelic rock merchants Dreamtime. Inspired by the sounds of late Sixties/early Seventies jams and Kosmiche Musik, on Tidal Mind the Brisbane four-piece focuses on maritime themes. Consequently, this latest effort sounds much more fluid and peaceful than previous outings.

The Budos Band
Long In The Tooth

Formed out of members of Antibalas pretty much exactly 15 years ago, Staten Island outfit The Budos Band announce their sixth studio album. Long In The Tooth finds them exploring the dark, Sabbath-esque hard-rock territory they’ve recently begun tapping, but not abandoning their Afrobeat roots in the process.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Willoughby’s Beach EP

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard originally released their second EP, Willoughby’s Beach, in 2011. It followed-up their Anglesea EP from earlier the same year. It shows the band having a more raw sound, compared to their 12 Bar Bruise album that followed a year later. Reissue with redesigned artwork and wonderfully vague red-ish coloured vinyl.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Aufheben

Here's a re-issue of the Brian Jonestown Massacre's 12th album released in 2012. Recorded in Germany and featuring original member Matt Hollywood alongside former Spacemen 3 member Will Carruthers , this is a varied album mixing up their signature psych rock with Eastern influences and songs sung in Finnish. 

Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Pretty much gives an answer to anyone having an existential crisis. Anathema are celebrating ten years of their prog and metal influenced masterpiece and are heading to a town near you on a mammoth tour. What better timing then to get a clear vinyl re-issue of the album which at the time was seen as a life affirming come back for the alt metal titans.

El Goodo
Zombie

Welsh band El Goodo take their name from a Big Star song and have been putting out some fab harmony-laiden, folk-pop-country-rock-psych type stuff - pretty much under the radar - for the past 20 years. Zombie is the band’s fourth album, named after the late dog belonging to producer Tim Lewis (you may know him as Julian Cope collaborator Thighpaulsandra.) What was intended to be a double album became a tight set of 13 songs and a high quality, all-killer, no filler-type single album. Welcome to the world of one of Wales’ best kept secrets.

OZO
Pluto

Following sojourns collaborating with many other artist, guitarist and modern psych-rock icon Mike Vest is joined by saxophonist Karl D'Silva and drummer Graham Thompson in Ozo for the project’s second album in 2020 alone. Darker and more malevolent than its predecessor, Pluto is a magnificent onslaught of instrumentation.

The 17th Dream Of Dr. Sardonicus Live

Back in that golden year of 2019 the Fruits de Mer and Sendelica labels put on a soiree in Wales over three days featuring some of their best known artists. An ambitious attempt was made to record the whole thing, the highlights of which are presented on this double LP. The Bevis Frond, the Chemistry Set and a host of lesser known psychedelic travellers feature on this essential document of the experience.

Frank Zappa
The Hot Rats Sessions

Frank Zappa’s 1969 weirdo virtuoso cosmic jazz rock classic Hot Rats is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Hot Rats Sessions is available as a reissue of the original LP, pressed on Hot Pink coloured vinyl, and a 6 CD box set featuring alternate takes of album tracks and non-album tracks - 65 tracks in all, 59 of them previously unreleased - and liner notes by The Simpsons creator Matt Groening. 

Electric Wizard
Dopethrone

Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' is a masterpiece of stoner and doom metal. The Dorset group take Black Sabbath's slow-and-low template and run all the way down the psychedelic rabbit hole and straight into the gates of hell with it. The ridiculously low-tuned guitars are steeped in devilish herb smoke and thick layers of fuzzed-out fog, whilst their wall-of-sound riffs lumber with monolithic intensity alongside mammoth percussion which fall like asteroids hitting earth. Jus Oborn’s funereal vocals sound as if he was caught within a bad trip, augmenting the demonic album with a shade of psychedelic brilliance.⁣ 'Dopethrone' is the perfect marriage of doom, sludge, stoner and psychedelic rock and is an essential in any collection. The album art depicting an intoxicated Lucifer pretty much sums up the record!

To contribute towards much-needed restoration work at The Cellar Bar in Cardigan where they hold their annual Dr. Sardonicus festival, the Fruits De Mer label releases a fundraising compilation.

Sendelica
The Compleat Cromlech Chronicles

Originally released between 2016 and 2019 over four volumes, The Compleat Cromlech Chronicles gathers all four albums from Welsh psychedelic rock outfit Sendelica.

Silver Scrolls
Music For Walks

Split into two separate musical journeys (or ‘walks’), the debut album from newly formed duo Silver Scrolls - consisting of former Polvo bandmates Dave Brylawski (formerly also of Black Taj and Idyll Swords) and Brian Quast (of Cherry Valence and Urge Overkill) - is a technically skilled yet immensely fun romp through various rock styles. 

France
Far Out Far West

Boasting a unique formation of percussion, bass and amplified hurdy-gurdy, designed to plug in to the folk sounds of their homeland and which causes all kinds of strange auditory sensations when seen live, Far Out Far West is the single-sided first album from trio France, designed to capture those live performances on record.

Gnoomes
MU!

Third studio album from Russian psychedelic pop outfit Gnoomes, a newly expanded quartet thanks to the addition of Masha Piankova on synths. Trailed by wonderful lead single ‘Sword In The Stone’, MU! aims to capture the pulsating sonic assaults of the group’s live shows, following the huge success of their recent European tours. 

Rose City Band
Rose City Band

Rose City Band hail from Portland, Oregon and play some laid-back strums. Their eponymous debut was produced by Eric 'Ripley' Johnson of Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo and mixed by Chris Cohen. The aim was to make an album that straddles the past, present and future, simultaneously organic and cosmic. On Jean Sandwich Records.

King Crimson
In The Court of The Crimson King (An Observation By King Crimson) [50th Anniversary Edition]

A 50th anniversary edition of one of rock music’s most iconic debut albums - not least for its iconic and unsettling artwork. King Crimson’s In The Court of The Crimson King was one of the first proper visions for progressive rock, and comes on a re-mastered 2xLP package featuring alternate takes of albums tracks on disc two, or a 3xCD + Blu-Ray set. 

Autotelia
I

Autotelia are the duo of Tomaga’s Tom Relleen and The Oscillation’s Demian Castellanos who here collaborate on an album if drifting psychedelia that at its calmest moments recalls Cluster but more often works in the shadow of Spacemen 3’s cosmic jamming. The pair use simply constructed meditative pieces to produced blissed out kosmische with the intention of providing an escapism soundtrack for the listener.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. feat. Geoff Leigh
Chosen Star Child's Confession

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. are, you’ll not be surprised to hear, a psychedelic rock band.

Sven Wunder

Boris

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour.

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 and The Seeds may be familiar names to many, and Count Five’s Psychotic Reaction has become a standard. The Nazz began Todd Rundgren’s career, and The Amboy Dukes foisted Ted Nugent on the world. But the one-offs and also-rans like The Knickerbockers and Mouse are as much fun. Styles range from proto-punk to baroque pop to Beatles pastiche, but it’s all bursting with joyous youthful vigour. Double LP reissue, with 27 tracks.

The Wytches
Three Mile Ditch

Hauling themselves out of a downward spiral caused by burnout after their rapid initial success, Peterborough-based indie act The Wytches self-release their third studio album, Three Mile Ditch.

Lama Lobsang Palden & Jim Becker
Compassion

Compassion is the beautiful but unlikely result of a collaboration between veteran Chicago-based guitarist Jim Becker and energy healer Lama Lobsang Palden. Arising from a healing session that Becker sought out nearly ten years ago, the various chants, bells and percussion used in the therapy are resolved to make something deeply evocative. 

Rose City Band
Summerlong

Another new project for fans of Ripley Johnson and Wooden Shjips, Rose City Band presents its debut album Summerlong. While it contains Johnson’s shimmering, psychedelic guitar lines, what’s novel about RCB is the introduction of instruments normally associated with country music, such as mandolins, banjo and the heavenly sounds of the lap steel guitar. 

Les Big Byrd
Roofied Angels

A remarkable resolution of ultra-heavy and feather-light musical elements that mixes into their existing psychedelic sound, Jocke Åhlund and Frans Johansson return with their latest Les Big Byrd EP. Spearheaded by the fuzzy, seven-minute onslaught of its title track, Roofied Angels arrives as a taster of their third studio album.

Throughout its running time, Nomad is constantly restless and kinetic. 

Pink Floyd
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

Piper at the Gates of Dawn was the debut album by Pink Floyd and their only album to be recorded under the stewardship of founding member Syd Barrett. It was released in 1967 - Barrett was fired midway through the recording of its follow-up A Saucerful of Secrets. Piper at the Gates of Dawn is highly regarded as a British psychedelic classic and definitely their most wonderfully strange recording.

Mood Taeg
Exophora

Mood Taeg are made up of people who live in Düsseldorf and Shanghai but the musical mood is more Germanic than Chinese. They are severely in debt to that magical movement of early '70s kraut-rock and electronic bands and cite the likes of Can, Neu!, Kraftwerk and Cluster as influences. They produce long form electronic pieces with some pretty great Jaki Liebezeit and Klaus Dinger. Should be right up the street of a lot of Norman Records customers.

These Dukes were actually the side-project of art-punks XTC who managed to not only be convincing, but also very, very good. A whole lot of fun.

King Crimson

In the years before Robert Fripp spent his days cavorting alongside wife Toyah Wilcox on a series of legend destroying lockdown videos, he was working with fellow prog head Steven Wilson on a long term project to remix some of his legendary King Crimson work. It has seen the light of day on a CD/DVD and vinyl box set but this is the first time they have been released on vinyl as limited albums. Here is 1970's In The Wake Of Poseidon in a limited edition of 2000 copies.

King Crimson
Red (remix)

Red by King Crimson was originally released in 1974. It is their seventh album. In 2009 Crimson main man Robert Fripp and prog enthusiast and musician Steven Wilson set about remastering the band’s back catalogue for CD. Fans have been dying to see these on vinyl so a vinyl box set was released in 2018, now they're being released as stand alone albums. Red is one of King Crimson’s best albums, and with the prog-metal crunch of the title track and the beautiful Starless being two highlights it’s easy to see why. It's the final album of a trilogy that also featured Larks' Tongues in Aspic and Starless & Bible Black.

Ashtray Navigations
Greatest Imaginary Hits

A package looking at the past and present of Leeds-based experimental outfit Ashtray Navigations, led by Phil Todd and Melanie O’Dubhslaine since the mid-Nineties. Greatest Imaginary Hits consists of a newly-recorded album of music pressed on vinyl, as well as four CDs’ worth of music selected by Henry Rollins, Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club), Rob Hayler (Radio Free Midwich) and Pete Coward from the band’s massive back catalogue of work for tiny independents throughout their history. Rollins has also contributed to the sleevenotes. 

Fu Manchu
Start The Machine

Start the Machine was the eighth album from stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu and the only one not to be released on vinyl... until today of course now that the good people at At the Dojo have re-mastered it and pressed it for your listening pleasure. Classic groovy sludge stoner gear...new and improved.  

Moon Attendant
One Last Summer

Pitched somewhere between shoegaze and Sixties garage-rock, One Last Summer is the debut studio album from Brighton-based collective Moon Attendant on Big Potato Records. Featuring label head Neil Halstead (ex-Slowdive) among their ranks, it’s an ear-catching labour of love created by old friends. 

Motorpsycho
The All Is One

Billed as the most ambitious piece of music they've ever recorded which is saying quite something for Motorpsycho the Norwegian rock band known for making lots of albums that take in psych, prog, jazz, country and whatever else they can lay their hands on. The third of what they are calling the Gullvåg trilogy, The All Is One again shows a band completely oblivious to trends and determined to follow their own path.

Mythic Sunship
Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music

Mythic Sunship work in a doom-psych context, but the presence of a saxophone, as well as a free-jazz mindset, takes their work into wider territory. Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music is just that, being a swirling, metamorphosing beast that grooves and throbs and riffs and blasts. Not just another psych group you understand. Out on El Paraiso Records.

Kooba Tercu
Proto Tekno

Presenting a face of resolve when looking at the frightening realities of the future, Proto Tekno is less an album and more of a manifesto. Kooba Tercu have taken the long-established ‘repetition, repetition, repetition’ formula of countercultural music of years gone by and turned it into an all-out assault on the senses.

'Burnt Offering' is the newest record from that ten-piece that just wants to have fun: the Budos Band. Riffs on riffs front this record of hazy psych-rock and proud metal worship, though the band retain their jazz and Afrobeat influences and pack their tunes with all the things that make them more like Fela Kuti. A weird, wonderful hybrid of musical party makes up 'Burnt Offering'.

Black Helium
Primitive Fuck

Riot Season (Hey Colossus, The Cosmic Dead) present the debut LP from Black Helium. Initially formed for a one-off gig in 2016, the band decided to persevere and have ended up with the eight tunes of Primitive Fuck. As well as being an excellent title, it's also an apt one - the band are heavily indebted to both the psychedelic freeness of Amon Düül and the no-BS proto-punk of The Stooges. A fun ride.

Gunther Wüsthoff
[to|digi]tal

[to|digi]tal is a new album of unreleased material from German musician Gunther Wüsthoff, one of the founding members of the iconic Faust. While this collection begins a good half a decade after the band had disintegrated, it still collects some pretty scintillating material from the years 1979 to 2007. 

Black Helium
The Wholly Other

Recorded live in the studio over two days late last summer, The Wholly Other is the second studio album from Black Helium. Forming four years ago as a one-off Halloween enterprise, their thickly layered, Spacemen 3-meets-Stooges riffs found an audience straightaway, leading to their debut album Primitive F*ck, and this sophomore effort pushes their sound into more extreme territory. 

Goat
World Music (Picture Disc)

The debut record by insane Swedish rockers Goat, highly recommended for everybody who loves squealing guitars, screaming ladies, and catchy afrobeat grooves. Combining psychedelic rock with lots of ethnic rhythms, World Music scored highly in many of 2012’s end-of-the-year lists. Great volumes of tribal distortion on this one.

It now gets a first vinyl re-issue since its original release.

White Manna
ARC

Pioneers of modern psychdelia for many years, ARC is the seventh studio album from White Manna. A nine-track effort recorded at guitarist Anthony Taibi's 3D Light Studios in California, a more consciously spontaneous and improvised approach was allowed here, making for a very different experience to the rest of their impressive discography.

The Heads
Reverberations Vol: 2

Is there anything left to scrape out of the Heads archives? Well seemingly yes as this Volume 2 of the Reverberations series proves. It captures the Heads live in 2001 at the Thekla in their home city of Bristol at a Kenneth Anger tribute night. There are just two tracks  - the first of which lasts a full thirty minutes. The band raise the roof of the place, they literally capsize the thing with their psych racket.

Dog Unit
Barking to Gospel

Dog Unit are an instrumental band that play a pulsating form of polyrhythmic dub-infused post-punk - a sort of danceable post-rock laced with mesmerizing hypnotic grooves. The London newcomers were just finishing off their debut EP 'Barking to Gospel' when UK lockdown started. Luckily, they have friends in the biz so they sent the files to Kieren Hebden aka Four Tet, who agreed to mix it while luxuriating in his upstate New York hideaway. It was then mastered by James Trevascus at Invada Studios.

Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin
Reverse Shark Attack

So that means Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin dress up as sharks and attack other sharks? Who knows. What we can tell you is it's a collaboration between two prolific merchants of garage-ey, psychedelic guitar music. 'Reverse Shark Attack' is a mix of raw fast-paced punk, lo-fi indie, psych, noise rock and a bit of surf in there too. If you like both or one of the parties involved, then you're sure to dig this record.

Sir Richard Bishop
Oneiric Formulary

The lofty American guitarist and experimentalist Sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls, Rangda et al.) or Sir Rick to his friends, returns after fives years of travel and exploration with Oneiric Formulary. It is his first album since the rather brilliant Tangier Sessions. His last two albums have been based around specific themes. Here the theme is much looser as he creates a collection of dream states, using different instruments on every track, drawing on different sounds from around the world.

Kevin Ayers - John Cale - Eno - Nico
June 1, 1974

Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about to release, their own albums. It happened, as the title suggests, on June 1, 1974. The album features some key performances from Cale, Eno and Nico on side one, whilst side two is entirely performed by Kevin Ayers. As an additional garnish to the already stellar cast, Mike Oldfield plays bass and Robert Wyatt plays drums. Limited edition reissue of 1000 copies on Island.

King Crimson
Lizard (remix)

Released in late 1970, Lizard was the second consecutive King Crimson album to be performed by a line-up that never actually performed live. Made immediately after the departure of Greg Lake and their only record to feature bassist/vocalist Gordon Haskell, it saw their wider commercial fortunes drop somewhat, going further down the modern jazz route than their two reputation-establishing albums, but their remarkable creativity remained intense. 

King Crimson
Starless & Bible Black (remix)

Remixes of the King Crimson back catalogue by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson were released as part of a vinyl box set in 2018. Here we have Starless and Bible Black as a stand alone released. It was their 6th album originally released in 1974. The album is a dynamic masterpiece of jazz rock and prog and the second part of a trilogy along with Larks' Tongues In Aspic and Red.

Mild High Club
Skiptracing

Mild High Club’s second album in just a year has a pleasing concept: the idea is that a private detective is on the trail of “the spirit of American music” circa the 1970’s. What he finds is Skiptracing, a cool suite of Californian groove and Steely Dan-esque jazz-inflected mellow-rock. A fun record on Stones Throw.

Zombi
2020

Steve Moore and Anthony Paterra return with their sixth Zombi album, and first in just over half a decade. On the appropriately named 2020, the duo deliver the most riff-intensive version of their instrumental space-rock aesthetic yet, with the synthetic and keyboard elements taking more of a back seat this time. 

Genesis
Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973. It charted at No.3 and also contains their first top 30 hit, the strangely melodic I Know What You Like (In Your Wardrobe). Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Tame Impala
Innerspeaker

Tame Impala have proved themselves champions of psychedelic rock over the past few years, ascending to the top of the pecking order with 'Lonerism', their tightly-knit collection of fluorescent pop tunes. Their debut 'Innerspeaker' is a worthy record in its own right, deftly navigating their heavy stoner influence with serene and inviting pop hooks. 

Tornado Wallace
Midnight Mania

Australia's Berlin-based Tornado Wallace comes to Scotland’s Optimo Music with a five track EP. Midnight Mania is inspired by both the planet Earth and how relatively small it is and the earth AKA dirt. This EP is percussive, psychedelic and at one with nature. Tornado Wallace has previously released records through Second Circle, Music From Memory and Running Back.

King Crimson
Larks' Tongues In Aspic (alt takes/mixes)

As part of Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson's long term re-badge of the King Crimson back catalogue comes the alternate takes version of their legendary Lark's Tongue In Aspic album originally released in 1973. These versions were only previously available on a CD/DVD and later a vinyl box set so this is their debut appearance as a separate vinyl release.

King Crimson
Larks' Tongues In Aspic (remix)

Larks Tongues’ in Aspic is the 5th album by King Crimson, originally released in 1973. It was the first album to feature Bill Bruford, David Cross, John Wetton and Jamie Muir. Here we have a vinyl edition of the remix by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson that was originally released on vinyl as part of a box set in 2018.

The House Of Love
The House Of Love

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career. In 2012 we got a 3CD set but now Cherry Red have managed to swell it out to a 5CD set with even more non album, session and live tracks. But it's the original album you need which has also been spread over a double LP for maximum impact. 

GUM
Out In The World

While not being involved in Australian outfits Tame Impala and Pond, Jay Watson has released a string of impressive psychedelic rock albums under the alias GUM, a reference to kids’ claymation series ‘Gumby’ which he loved as a kid. Out In The World is his fifth such record, and ought to maintain his high critical acclaim.

Ellis/Munk Ensemble
San Diego Sessions

San Diego Sessions by the Ellis/Munk Ensemble sees Danish musician Jonas Munk (of Causa Sui) and the Californian city’s own Brian Ellis, whose work is steeped in jazz and psychedelia, recording together. Over seven loose-limbed tracks, the duo recall the high-points of psychedelic rock and jazz fusion from years gone by. 

Mong Tong
Mystery

Recorded at their home studio in Taipei, brothers Hom Yu and Jiun Chi undertake a journey into Taiwanese folklore as well as pop culture’s perceptions of the supernatural on Mystery. Their recording nom-de-plume, Mong Tong, can mean many things in Chinese, but the siblings’ emphasis on the translation ‘the east side of dreams’ is more than apt for this haunting composition.

Jefferson Airplane
Surrealistic Pillow

One of the quintessential '60s psych rock albums Surrealistic Pillow was actually the second album by Jefferson Airplane but the first to feature vocalist Grace Slick. It has gained near legendary status over the years perfectly timed to soundtrack the counterculture movement of the late 1960s.

DRIFT.
Symbiosis

Drift sounds like the sort of word that has been used before but don't dismiss it entirely as this is the solo project from Nathalie Bruno of Proper Ornaments. Inspired equally by classical composers, electronic pioneers, library music and the '70s German experimenters she has made an album sure to have appeal to fans of the likes of Broadcast and Jane Weaver. 

Conrad Schnitzler
Gelb (Bonus Version)

Krautrock's tangerine darling, Conrad Schnitzler, loved to make solo records and then name them after colours, and this was a long time ago, so take that, Weezer. 'Gelb', or yellow to us ignorant Brits, is comprised of recordings from 1974, and shows him out of sorts with a far less disciplined approach -- here, he improvises a bunch of shorter tracks with simple keyboard work.

Electric Moon
You Can See The Sound Of...

Can we see sound? Some people claim to do so and on this latest release from Electric Moon they invite you to come and see their music. This was originally a 12" EP but has since been extended into a full length album and released on the vintage format of CD. Electric Moon are known for their trippy psychedelics and long form atmospherics for fans of Pink Floyd and Amon Duul. 

Minami Deutsch & Damo Suzuki
Live At Roadburn

At the 2018 edition of the mighty Roadburn festival in quaint little Tilburg, Minami Deutsch did a live collaboration with krautrock maestro and ex-Can man Damo Suzuki. Once they got going, they didn't stop. The sense of propulsion at the core of the show absolutely finds its way onto the recording and deep into your soul. On Fuzz Club.

Lightning Orchestra
Source And Deliver

Lightning Orchestra is the creative conduit for multi-instrumentalist Travis Murphy, bolstered by a rotating, elastically-numbered backing band of like-minded souls inspired by legends from Jimi Hendrix to Fela Kuti. The outfit’s debut album Source and Deliver is released on neon yellow vinyl, containing the monstrous ‘White Tiger’. 

The Vacant Lots
Interzone

New York duo The Vacant Lots make a blend of dance and psych that we’re going to put in an electro-meets-post punk kinda pigeonhole. Their new LP, Interzone, is a place where ice cold beats are met with punchy guitars and dark disco hits and motorik propulsions thrive. The duo have previously collaborated with Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3, Alan Vega of Suicide and Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Brown Acid: The Tenth Trip

Brown Acid is a series of compilations documenting lost and hard to find stoner rock and proto-metal tracks from the bowels of history. The Tenth Trip naturally is the tenth edition and features unheard gems from thew likes of Bitter Creek, the Brood, Conception the Rubber Memory and First State Bank. All lost classics in their own right, lovingly compiled and ripe for discovery. 

Chris Forsyth / Dave Harrington / Ryan Jewell / Spencer Zahn
First Flight

Recorded in September 2019 during Chris Forsyth’s residency at Nublu, the guitarist was joined on stage by drummer Ryan Jewell, bassist Spencer Zahn and fellow guitarist Dave Harrington. First Flight is basically the very definition of improvised - the four musicians had only all met each other around half an hour before it was recorded! - but the jams laid down here spark with creativity.
