Golden Pelicans
Disciples Of Blood

Golden Pelicans make hard rock that is just as hard and gnarly at the edges as they used to make it in the scuzziest 80’s fleapits. Disciples Of Blood is the third record of punkish long-haired party music the band have put together, and it's properly strong stuff. Released by Goner Records on both CD and LP.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Murder Of The Universe

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have already pretty much mastered that pulsing garage rocky sound, but they are still aiming to release five (yep, five) albums in 2017. Murder Of The Universe is the second, and it seems to be aiming to summon up the spirits of the 70’s hard rock gods, even going so far as to divide the record into three so-called ‘chapters’. Epic. Out on Heavenly. The sticker smells like vomit.

Ecstatic Vision
Raw Rock Fury

The clue is in the name. Raw Rock Fury is the second album from Philadelphian heavy primal psych outfit Ecstatic Vision. A no guns no glory affair, where psychedlic freakouts are king and only matched with raw rock and roll energy. (You'll) Get it if you’re into Hawkwind, Monster Magnet, Amon Düül II, and Can.

The Mothers Earth Experiment
The Mothers Earth Experiment

This self-titled offering from The Mothers Earth Experiment is a well-informed and sprawling offering, containing worldy influences ranging from spheres of jazz, psych, metal and electronica. As a six-track offering its message is artistic freedom, and a debut album it forms an extremely solid foundation to build upon.

Frederick Michael St. Jude
Almost Lost

Described as a ‘Florida rock phenomenon’, Frederick Michael St. Jude brings his third archival release entitled Almost Lost. The record features smooth and flowing guitars and a truly unique amount of varying instrumentalism. A somewhat lost classic of the folk, country, progressive and even psych genres. 

Dire Wolves
Excursions To Cloudland

We've already had Dire Straits but now we have Dire Wolves a collective of '60s influenced dreamers who take influences from Pink Floyd and the Incredible String Band and apply them to their particular brand of freakery. With just four very long tracks, Excursions to Cloudland promises to be the sort of trip you might never return from.

Black Cube Marriage
Astral Cube

Black Cube Marriage is a mighty Rob Mazurek ensemble formed out various members of Marriage, Rob’s famed Sao Paolo Underground, and extra players like Steve Jansen. With eleven people on board, the group can summon up the cosmic freedom of the Sun Ra Arkestra of some of Pharoah Sanders’ groups, but the large quantities of electronics involved take things someplace new. Astral Cube is released by El Paraiso Records.

Robyn Hitchcock
Robyn Hitchcock

Robyn Hitchcock’s new one, which bears his own name, is the first time he’s settled into the studio with a full band in almost a decade. He’s used the opportunity well, marshalling the full heft of the group to give weight and groove to these latest psych-rocky compositions. Robyn Hitchcock is released in CD and vinyl editions on the Yep Roc label.

Pink Floyd
Dramatis/ation 1969

Fans of Pink Floyd who didn’t quite feel able to spring for their colossal recent The Early Years 1965 - 1972 box-set can rejoice: the six constituent parts of the set are now being released separately! Dramatis/ation 1969 includes two CDs, a DVDs and a Blu-Ray, featuring an absolute stack of rare and unreleased live, session and non-album material.

Hills
Alive at Roadburn

Hills are alive with the sound of psych rock. With four songs they have sung for many years.  Hills may fill your heart with primal hypnotic rhythms. They'll make you want to sing every song you hear. Their songs beat with the rhythm of the Byrds. Playing 'Eight Miles High' forever up in the trees.

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche
Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much

Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche want to play! Their new album Pas pire pop, I Love You So Much is a vibrant brew of ecstatic dance rock via psychedelic deserts: wordless vocals, sharp and clean guitars, irresistibly flowing rhythms. Properly trance-inducing stuff. The album is released by Constellation: the vinyl version includes a poster and a download code.

Pink Floyd
London 1966/1967

This pair of vintage Syd-era jams from the film Tonite Lets All Make Love In London have been available in various collectible formats over the years, and now resurface as a ten inch. There’s not much evidence of psychedelic free rock that predates this, a fearless exploratory dive into uncharted territory armed with little more than rudimentary musical skills and freshly turned-on brains, that stands up beside all kinds of Kosmische excursions and improv pals AMM. Interstellar Overdrive is the Ronseal moment, while Nick’s Boogie is way more frazzled than the title suggests.

The Time And Space Machine
The Way Out Sound From In

Ample Play Records release a heavy duty collection of Richard Norris’ recent Time And Space Machine Mixes on August 25th. A man of many guises, he has operated as a duo - as The Grid with Dave Ball, as Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve with Erol Alkan - but when it's time for some solo sonic action, he records and remixes as The Time and Space Machine. We find him at it here: 'The Way Out Sound From In', reworking the most cosmic beat combos around into hitherto unheard psychedelic shapes. Warpaint, Jagwar Ma, Temples, Psychemagik, Tame Impala, The Sufis and more fall into the Time and Space Machine and come out the other side with wider grins and shinier eyes. It's The Way Out Sound From In....all aboard.

Mythic Sunship
Land Between Rivers

Straight outta Copenhagen fly Mythic Sunship, a heavy psychedelic quartet swimming in a lake of fuzz. Land Between Rivers is a riffed-up monster of an album, with track lengths that stretch out into the far distance and deep-dug grooves that just won’t let up. Released on CD and LP by El Paraiso Records.

Flying Saucer Attack
New Lands

Released in 1997, New Lands is the eight-track pioneering record from Flying Saucer Attack. A solid and creative album that brings together different elements of their dreamy yet distinct shoegaze sound. Underneath a few of the tracks is a constant mumbling drone to keep you on edge and this quietly influential album should be valued alongside the rest of their impressive back catalogue. 

Galley Beggar
Heathen Hymns

Gallery Beggar have released an eight-part record entitled Heathen Hymns. A solid and genuine release that captures so many different areas of psychedelic folk music, many of which have never explored before! This release has been described as unequivocal triumph for creativity and is available Vinyl LP and CD.

eagle/deer
The Summer Of Sepia

A dense, sad and strange neo-folk record from Eagle/Deer. Summer of Sepia is a collection of American folk music driven by Sara Charles solo banjo and guitar playing and delicate vocals. Her haunting mountain tales and multi-instrumentalism bring to mind Sufjan Stevens, and this vinyl LP is available on Blast First Petite.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Damaged Bug
Bunker Funk

Damaged Bug is the cracked-up solo project of Thee Oh Sees frontman and all-round garage-psych mastermind John Dwyer. Bunker Funk is a cool little thing, wrapping songs in lots of strange sounds and textures. Electroacoustic garage-funk? Yeah, something like that. Out on Dwyer’s own imprint Castle Face.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Invaderband
Invaderband

New Northern-Irish alternative guitar music from the mind of Adam Leonard (of The Owl Service). Invaderband play choppy, post-punky songs, flavoured with old-school space alien action as on the lead single ‘Attack Of The Pod People’. This self-titled debut full-length is released on vinyl by the Tectona Grandis label.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
Balance

Guadalajaran kraut/psyche-rock duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete manage to blow some of the cobwebs away, re-energise and bring grit back to the genre with Balance, literally. La Distinción sonically paints a world where Tarantino directed Austin Powers with big band psychedelic groove meeting mexican stand-off like tension.

Camera
Radiate

Bureau B (Die Wilde Jagd, Conrad Schnitzler) drop the debut LP from Berlin-based Krautrockers Camera. Radiate has a pretty to-the-point sound - there’s only three in the band, after all, so don’t expect anything too Amon Düül. Besides that, the Motorik grooves motor with a muscular intensity here that makes one think of Can on steroids.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Neighbourhood Strange
Let's Get High / One Last Chance

Vintage-style psychedelic rock’n’roll with a sunny disposition and an affected vocal style from The Neighbourhood Strange. Let’s Get High / One Last Chance, the Salisbury band’s second single, has lots of guitar that will delight fans of 60’s blues rock. It’s released in an edition of 500 7” vinyl copies by the Strange Recordings label.

Keb Darge & Cut Chemist present The Dark Side – 30 Sixties Garage Punk and Psyche Monsters

One man funk funk library Keb Darge teams up with Cut Chemist again to follow up from their 2007 compilation and delve once more into the lost world of 60s garage music. Filled with rarities and the obscure from both players’ personal collections they aim to inspire their love for the genre and get you hooked, and who better to lead you.

Damo Suzuki & Sound Carriers
Live at Marie-Antoinette

To this day, Damo Suzuki continues to tour the world, playing improvised sets with one-off ensembles of local musicians as he goes. On this Berlin date in 2011, his Sound Carriers include Ilpo Väisänen of Pan Sonic and Dirk Dresselhaus of Schneider™, among other remarkable types. Live At Marie-Antoinette is a double LP, released by Play Loud!

Temples
Volcano

Here's a new one from curly mopped psych pop fans Temples. Their previous record 'Sun Structures' was the type of psych record you could take home to meet your mum so we are expecting more radio-friendly vaguely '60s tunes to hum when you put the bins out of a night. Lead track 'Certainty' sounds like MGMT gone sensible so this could be a winner.   

Here Lies Man
Here Lies Man

Here Lies Man is an interesting concept for a band. Basically, they take the magically groovy genre of Afrobeat and then fuzz it up to psychedelic heavy rock levels. The results are pretty damn sweet: simultaneously heavy and light on its feet. Do you thrash about or simply funk out? Try both. The self-titled debut of the project is released by RidingEasy.

Goblin
Buio Omega

Vintage Goblin from 1979, doing what they do best: providing a soundtrack to a gory Italian giallo horror film. Lots of proggy drama and synth sleaze to be enjoyed on the Buio Omega soundtrack, which is presented here in a full edition, with unreleased takes and cues from the archives included. Reissued by Death Waltz.

PC Worship
Buried Wish

Here they are, the guitar band I always think make electronic music. It's in the name -- you expect retro synths and what you get is in fact weirdass indie rock, a little deviating from the proper stuff and a little fried for punk music. PC Worship continue to break the time continuum just a little bit by improvising solid psychedelia with a wash of noise, which on this album concludes tape loops and the like. Buried Wish is a step up, or sideways, or through a wormhole.

All Them Witches
Sleeping Through The War

Sleeping Through The War by All Them Witches is a well-crafted rock record. The band wrote all the songs before spending six days in a Nashville Studio with Sturgill Simpson/Rival Sons producer Dave Cobb. The album, a result of overstimulated minds from relentless touring, has an energy that demands the stereo be turned up to full whack.

Jess and The Ancient Ones
Jess and The Ancient Ones

  Finnish label Svart have reissued and remastered Jess And The Ancient Ones 2012, self-titled cult classic. Initially regarded as proprietors of the 'occult rock revival' the band have since gone on to transcend the cliches of the genre,  but their debut LP still remains a celebrated favourite. As well as the original tracks, there are four bonus tracks added  - including a cover of Roky Erickson's 'Anthem - to make it even more of a must-have for fans of the album.

Saturn
Beyond Spectra

Mixing Judas Priest riffery with a psychedelic groove, there is certainly a nod to their 70s heroes here, but Saturn’s sophomore full length hold their cannons facing firmly towards the future. Good old leather jacket and denim pants heavy metal come rock and roll here, hell… leather pants, V-shaped guitars, and fists in the air.

Feral Ohms
Feral Ohms

Feral Ohms is a trio with ferocious members drawn from bands like Comets On Fire, Drunk Horse and Nudity. This self-titled debut album is a dirty slab of rock music done right, e.g. overdriven to hell and blasted with feedback and distortion. It’s a wild ride and no mistake. Released by Silver Current Records.

Warp Transmission
Tamam Shud

Warp Transmission are a Finnish group who are deadly serious about fiercely-blasted dark psychedelia. Taman Shud, which was first released as a cassette, is so full of overdrive, effects and distortion that the textures start to mutate into something alien. Remastered for CD and vinyl and released by Creepy Crawl. Pow!
  • Genre(s):

Ulan Bator
Stereolith

Ulan Bator have been creating avant-garde rock music from their base in Paris since 1993: Stereolith is their twelfth album. Stereolith is full of full-on krautrock rhythmic drive and inventive electronics, but notably keeps things tight, with no track exceeding five and a half minutes. Released by Bureau B.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Grails
Chalice Hymnal

The mega Grails return! Whilst this project may have seemed quiet for the last 5 years, the members have been busy writing Chalice Hymnal whilst working with their other projects OM, Watter and Lilacs & Champagne. Chalice Hymnal manages to throw them all together like a worldly-psych-drone hotpot filled with spacey near distance guitars, washy brass ensembles and crisp heavy drums.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Underground Youth
What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This?

The Underground Youth deliver their eighth album, the cheerfully (and topically?) titled What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This? Those gloomy vibes are transmitted to the listener via goth-vocalled, shoegaze-guitared post-punk music. The songwriting standards are very high, since The Underground Youth clearly know themselves very well by this point. Out on Fuzz Club.

Vermont
II

Sophomore efforts are always difficult, but Vermont simply continues where they left off. On II, German synthesizer-whisperers Marcus Wogull and Danilo Plessow (from Motor City Drum Ensemble) once again show a world brimming with vintage analog electronics, where they have created exciting upbeat soundscapes approaching the krautrocky. A fine example of why we love it when Kompakt makes exceptions on its strict minimal-techno-producers-only policy.

Meatbodies
Meatbodies

The unholy din you're hearing on "Tremmors" is made by Meatbodies, a band with a full-bodied psych rock sound that matches their name for velocity and volume. Sounding at times like an amped up Merchandise who want you to hear every bit of them, they've made this self-titled record of screeching guitars, isolated vocal harmonies and garage rock guitar interchanges. They are of course well loved by Ty Segall for making noise you can grasp and dance around to.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Innercity Ensemble
III

With an all-star cast that incorporates Stara Rzeka, Kapital and T’ien Lai, the odds for Innercity Ensemble turning out quality music are high. And they don’t disappoint! III is sort of jazz-derived, but also totally grounded in thick heavy rhythms. Definite jazz-fusion vibes here, but without any of the weaker trappings of that genre. Out on Instant Classic.

Zombi
Shape Shift

A four year hiatus followed Zombi’s last album, Escape Velocity, which their fans hold dear to their hearts. Their new album, Shape Shift is a heavier and darker piece of work than it’s predecessor that has the Pittsburgh space rock duo returning to their ‘live’ sounding roots. Recommended if you like the soundtracks of John Carpenter or bands like Goblin, Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai.

Bobak, Jons, Malone
Motherlight

Here’s a hardcore rarity from the 1960’s psychedelic underground: the one and only album by the trio Bobak, Jons, Malone, which fetches colossal sums for original copies. But forget the collectors, this reissue allows you to just listen to the gorgeous music! Motherlight is a lovely set of sweet psych-pop, available at very reasonable prices courtesy of Secret Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Paperhead
Africa Avenue

Psychedelic students The Paperhead continue to pay their respects to the rock 'n' roll of the 1960s on 'Africa Avenue', playing their fuzzed-up guitars and acoustic strums like their hair is doing most of the work. It's their most directly pop work as a band yet, though the band still want you to think they're totally weird, so bring in some country fever and even brandish a harpsichord at one point.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Holydrug Couple
Soundtrack For Pantanal

Soundtrack For Pantanal was recorded alongside The Holydrug Couple’s Moonlust album, and it applies the same kind of luscious psychedelic drone rock to a film. Except that this particular film does not actually exist… A shame, as I’d love to see the images that would fit with this lovely sounding album. LP release on BYM Records.

Sundays & Cybele
Chaos & Systems

Sundays & Cybele are a super-psychedelic outfit who pluck their moves from the Japanese scene, from prog-rock, and from 60’s acid dudes among others. Crucially, Chaos & Systems is psychedelic as opposed to psych: there is plenty of air and love in this epic record’s atmosphere. CD and LP editions on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Julian Cope
Drunken Songs

Julian Cope is an acknowledged expert in the field of intoxicated music enjoyment, so this album of drinking songs, Drunken Songs, is very welcome. There is a song written for Cope’s own funeral, a song called ‘Liver Big As Hartlepool’, and a big 20-minute jam to close out the album, as is traditional. CD release on Cope’s own Head Heritage label.

Moon Duo
Occult Architecture Vol. 1

Part One of a two part record by Moon Duo, the motorik duo of Sanae Yamada and Wooden Shjips man Ripley Johnson. You know how this game works by now: drum machines grooving endlessly beneath a constantly shifting carpet of fuzzed-guitar. Yum! Occult Architecture Vol. 1 is the dark and wintery part of the pair. Out on Sacred Bones.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Veldt
The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation

The Veldt's back story is an astonishing tale of two identical twin brothers who went against any kind of grain and made music throughout the '80s and '90s that baffled any record labels that tried to take them on but in 2016 sounds almost insanely influential. Their brand of soulful shoegaze most recalls like minded Londoners AR Kane but also serves as a kind of prototype for TV on the Radio especially on their early records. This new EP has everything place and to ensure these lesser known brothers become cult heroes whilst they are still alive.    

Pond
The Weather

Pond present The Weather, a concept album dedicated to their hometown of Perth and its colonial city brethren around the world. It has a bright and exciting psychedelic flavour: you can almost hear the influence of their producer, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. CD and black vinyl editions available, plus a special white-with-blue-specks vinyl edition that you’ll have to be speedy to get hold of. On Marathon Artists.

Singapore Sling
Kill Kill Kill (Songs About Nothing)

Singapore Sling are one of Iceland’s premier purveyors of psychedelic music: they’ve been vibing hard for nine albums and seventeen years now. Kill Kill Kill (Songs About Nothing) is a particularly messed-up version of their sound, with their gnarly rock chug being accompanied by a bad trip haze of guitars and vocals. Bad acid, good times. On Fuzz Club.
  • Genre(s):

Roky Erickson
All That May Do My Rhyme

All That May Do My Rhyme is the 1995 album of 13th Floor Elevators originator Roky Erickson. It’s a pleasingly laid-back set, leaning more towards folky rootsy rock music than the fried-out psychedelia of much of his career, though that is also present in small tasty doses. The album has been reissued on CD and vinyl LP by the Play Loud label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Pink Floyd
A Momentary Lapse of Reason

The Pink Floyd vinyl reissuing machine rolls around to two of the group’s latter day albums, thus completing the roster. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason is their 1984 thirteenth album, and their first following the departure of Roger Waters. Lots more drum machines and other electronic techniques here than on most Floyd albums. It has been remastered, and is available on vinyl for the first time in decades on Pink Floyd Records.

The Brainiac 5
Journey To X

How many musicians can you name from Cornwall? Ok, Aphex Twin, but any more? You in the back? The other one in Mount Kimbie, very good. Nothing else, eh? Well now you can add The Brainiac 5 to that list. After forming in the 70’s, being championed by John Peel and then splitting before their debut album came out, the group has picked up again in the past few years. This, their second album since reforming, slips in and out of a diverse array of psych stylings. Two of the tracks top 10 minutes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spider Kitten
Ark Of Octofelis

Spider Kitten’s 8th full length outing stirs a big old cauldron with a broth made up of Pink floyd psych, Black Sabbath riffs, the pure weight of The Melvins and the dark theatricality of Nick Cave. Big chugging riffage topped with soaring vocal deliveries paint an epic adventure in a near future landscape.

Fuzz
II

Ty Segall’s proto-metal trio, Fuzz are back with their second album aptly named, Fuzz II. The band are in a musical time warp, ostensibly existing somewhere between 1968 and 1973, a time when guitars were fuzzy, and everything was real heavy. Their eponymous debut was a cracking homage to the rock sub-genre, Fuzz II sounds like it’s going to be just as good.

Gospels of Degeneration

The Third Sound are a strong indie-psych band with Brian Jonestown Massacre associations: they’ve toured together, and Tess Parks appears on one of these new tracks.

Nick Oliveri
N.O. Hits At All Vol. 1

Nick Oliveri is part of stoner metal / desert rock royalty, having played with Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Katzenjammer, Mondo Generator etc. But this compilation release focuses on yet other of his exploits, documenting times when Nick has added guest vocals to other band’s jams, and there are plenty of them. This is Volume One of the N.O. Hits At All series. On Heavy Psych Sounds.

The Paperhead
Chew

Nashville trio The Paperhead craft a deliciously off-centre brew of familiar acoustic backings, over which a rich palette of instrumental splashings lean in and out. This, their latest in a neat handful of albums, is reminiscent of Van Morrison’s more direct offerings, with a slightly melancholic Moody Blues swagger.

TAU
TAU TAU TAU

Shaun Nunutzi heads up Tau, taking a well-earned sabbatical from touring his crusher monotony with Dead Skeletons. Following up from the Wirikuta EP, he works with Gerald Pasqualin for a quickly made, easily done 'n' dusted collection of psych folk tunes -- I imagine there might be some riffs too, if you're lucky. Earl Harvin of Tindersticks pays a visit, at one point.
  • Artist(s):
  • TAU

Lecherous Gaze
One Fifteen

Lecherous Gaze are a total hard rock & roll band from California, featuring alumni from bands like Witch, Saviours and Annihilation Time. One Fifteen is a heavy and psychy set from a bunch of guys who live, eat and breath hard rock. Chugging riffs and flaring solos aplenty! It’s released on CD and vinyl by the Tee Pee label.

Aquarian Blood
Last Nite In Paradise

Aquarian Blood are a band built around the husband and wife duo of Laurel Ferdon and JB Horrell, both of whom have played in a bunch of bands. When the other members of the group are added in, I imagine the whole of the Memphis weird-punk underground is represented in one way or another. Last Nite In Paradise is the debut full-length of this blasted outfit: quality madness music played at high speed. On Goner Records.

CFM
Homegrown Paranoia

CFM is Charles Francis Moothart, and CFM is a fire-spitting garage-psych band project with a new 7” out now. Homegrown Paranoia’s three tracks feel like they are perpetually accelerating, but the band still holds their tunes together under the carpet of tasty fuzz that covers the sound. A blasted-up good time record on In The Red.
  • Artist(s):
  • CFM

Has A Shadow
Sorrow Tomorrow

Hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Has A Shadow release their second full-length dark offering of gothic, grunged-out post-punk on a black, 180gm slab of vinyl. And CD. Theirs is a sound that haunts and stalks the night, with stark, eerie vocal chants and murky bass rhythms serving as undercurrents to moonlit riffs and scuzz of “Sorrow Tomorrow”.

Pond
Man It Feels Like Space Again

Man It Feels Like Space Again is a futuristic sliver of psychedelic pop from the crazy men/children of Australian band Pond. It continues on the same road laid down by previous album Hobo Rocket by delivering yet more hyperactive rock/pop tunes lathered in strange psych effects with obscure titles such as “Zond”. It’s bound to be another belter. CD or 180g LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Jawbones
High And Low And Low And High

Jawbones are a Berlin-based psych-rock outfit with a sound that flirts heavily with the sixties psychedelic originators without just being a pastiche act. High And Low And Low And High is their conceptually-driven debut record, released by Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre)’s ‘a’ Recordings in collaboration with 8MM Musik.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Once & Future Band
Once & Future Band

Once & Future Band are a full-on throwback to the rich flavours of the great orchestral-prog-pop of the 1970’s. This self-titled debut of theirs sounds like a mash-up of all the nicest bits from all those bands, but performed with such love and skill that it all sounds new and fun. Nobody does this kind of music anymore anyway. Released by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Francis Vincent Zappa Conducts The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra & Chorus
Lumpy Gravy

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. Lumpy Gravy is Zappa’s debut solo album from 1967, released under the name Francis Vincent Zappa and utilising the talents of The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra & Chorus (some session musicians). Big time musique concréte and contemporary composition, as translated via Zappa’s playful mind.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention
We're Only In It For The Money

A brace of some of Frank Zappa’s many (many) albums are receiving heavyweight vinyl reissues from Universal. We’re Only In It For The Money is his third album with The Mothers Of Invention, and it’s got a wild blend of psych-rockin’, weirdo voice / tape experimentation, skitty bits, doo-wop and much more. Sounds pretty out there, even for 1968. 180g vinyl reissue.

Harmonia & Eno '76
Tracks and Traces

Brian Eno called Harmonia "the most important band in the world". That title should really have already persuaded you to give this record a whirl but here's some background info anyway: in 1976 Eno holed up for eleven days in Harmonia's Cologne studio and recorded what was to become 'Tracks & Traces'. It's a superb collection of krautrock with inviting pastoral undertones and a sense of rigorous experimentalism. This reissue contains three previously unreleased songs that were only made possible because of modern tape cleaning equipment. Marvellous. Out on Gronland.

Blonde On Blonde
Rebirth

Blonde On Blonde were a Welsh psychedelic / prog band active for a couple of years from the late 60’s on. Their second album, Rebirth, has been allowed to sink into obscurity, with this being the very first time it has been officially reissued on vinyl. High energy melodic super-rock: what’s not to like? Reissued by Vinilisssimo.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Sex Swing
Sex Swing

More kraut racket for your worn out ears but this time with legs. This collective contain members of Part Chimp, Mugstar, Dethscalator and Earth and this is a brazen and rackety take on the Suicide/Silver Apples blueprint with squawking sax added for extra discordance and gruesome churning vocals that recall Gallon Drunk. You are going to hate it....or it could just be your favourite record of the year. Hold tight!  

The Wharves
Electa

The Wharves come from loads of different places and combine a kind of fuzzed out folk and minimal psych which is comparable to both of Kim Deal's post Pixies projects (the Breeders and the Amps) as well as Sleater Kinney. They mix three part harmonies and elements of progressive 70s folk with their lo-fi song craft for a bold and entertaining third album.    

Richard Pinhas
Reverse

French experimento-prog legend (and Heldon member) Richard Pinhas has been collaborating left right and centre for the last few years, and for new solo record Reverse, he’s brought many of those heavyweight friends into the mix. We’re talking Oren Ambarchi, Masami Akita, William Winant: serious stuff. Released by Bureau B.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dungen
Häxan

Dungen’s album Häxan (their first entirely instrumental record) began as a score to the 1926 film The Adventures Of Prince Achmed, but ended up wandering off course into more abstract and witchy territory. The results are lush and super evocative. Bonus fact: the whole album was put together using only analogue tape! Released by Scandinavian sound stronghold Smalltown Supersound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

Ashtray Navigations
To Make A Fool Ask, And You Are The First

Leeds’ very own genuinely-psychedelic noise explorers Ashtray Navigations are releasing their latest statement on the Blackest Ever Black label, but that doesn’t mean they’ve gone industrial techno. No, To Make A Fool Ask, And You Are The First is full-bore AshNav, moving through strange organic piano, searing guitar fury, and much more squishy territory in between.

Chocolat
Rencontrer Looloo

Chocolat describe their new album as a coming together of “hard jazz and surf metal”, which puts them into pretty rare territory. Rencontrer Looloo, recorded after some time away, finds Chocolat merrily doing their own thing with gnarly guitars and proggish rhythms. It's released by the Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Spacegirl and Other Favourites

San Francisco based psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre have put together ‘Spacegirl And Other Favourites’ from the original vinyl release of the tracks. Title track ‘Spacegirl’ is a drawn out, droning whiteout with psyche chants with bursts of classic seventies organ sounds that pick up the infectious, repetitive melodies and then lay them back down to sleep.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Major Stars
Motion Set

Having been active since the last century, veterans Major Stars prepare to release yet another rough' n 'ready slice of psychedelic-rock. As the ninth offering from the Massachusetts-incepted outfit, Motion Set recognises its predeceasing catalogue whilst still exploring new ideas and stretching into unfounded spaces.

ESP Ohio
Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean

ESP Ohio is yet another band by Robert Pollard, working once again with his fellow Guided By Voices member Doug Gillard. Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean is a proper nice rock album, with guitar chug, bonus brass parts, and catchy tunes. The good ship Pollard sails on… Released by the Guided By Voices Inc. record label

Wolf People
Ruins

Wolf People return to Jagjaguwar after a three year gap. Known for their psychedelic, proggy and pretty much classic rock with a little Jethro Tull thrown in for good measure, Ruins is a bit heavier and weightier. Distorted megaphone like vocals and valve driven guitar leads. Noted inc=fluences are Iron Claw, and it certainly isn’t without the Black Sabbath tinge.

Aidan Baker & Tomas Järmyr
Werl

Ex-Nadja heavy droner Aidan Baker and explorative drummer Tomas Järmyr whipped up some sonic rituals in the studio recently, and the results stretch across two CDs here. Werl is real expansive, the two musicians dancing around one another in passages that alternate between droning free sound and locked-in rhythmic attack. Double CD on Consouling Sounds.

Cluster
Kollektion 06 :1971-1981 Compiled By John McEntire

John McEntire of Tortoise and The Sea And Cake was given free reign to compile his choicest Cluster cuts from the years 1971-1981, and what cuts they are. The magical komische sound of Cluster floats lighter than air, but these electronic spirituals seep deep into the mind of the listener. Kollektion 06 is released by Bureau B.

Icarus Peel
Forget-Me-Not Under Pussy Willow

Icarus Peel is the leader of The Honey Pots, but he has a busy little sideline in solo albums, of which Forget-Me-Not Under Pussy Willow is the fourth. It sounds as old-tyme English as the sleeve art looks, with an eccentric darkness that feels like a twingle in Peel’s eye. 180g vinyl LP release on the Mega Dodo label, limited to 250 copies only.
