The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Revelation

Led by the infamous Anton Newcombe, Brian Jonestown Massacre recorded their 14th album, Revelation in Newcombe’s Berlin studio over 18 months between 2012 and 2014. Eastern influences had started to make their way into the band’s psychedelic groove. The band are a swirling collective helmed by Newcom...view item »


Causa Sui
Pewt'r sessions 1-2

Here I have in my robot hand a CD collection of both of Causa Sui's excellent 'Pewt'r Sessions'. Rather than review the whole thing again, you can read Li'l Biz and Brian's 9 star reviews of the individual albums below.......   Pewt'r Sessions 1  by Li'l Biz   Ron Schneiderman of m...view item »


The Black Angels
Clear Lake Forest

Previously only available on limited 10" for RSD, features 7 entirely new tracks.  It follows their album Indigo Meadow (2013) where once again The Black Angels proved themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock. “Imagine tossing bands from the pantheon of American psychedelia like The Electric Prunes, C...view item »


Yamantaka // Sonic Titan
Uzu

Here's a strange and ambitious album of futuristic prog rock from the awkwardly-monikered Yamantaka // Sonic Titan (a name combining their twin passions of Eastern theatre and stoner rock), who centre around the talents of Toronto/Montreal-based Alaska B and Ruby Kato Attwood, who quite charmingly call this mixture of their Eastern heritage an...view item »


Fuzz
Live In San Francisco

Ty Segall! That man! He's back! Not that he went anywhere but over the last couple of years he's been busy getting all popular and adored. It's hard work. Anyway, he's continued his quest for musical infamy with a live Fuzz album out on Castleface, recorded on his birthday. He s...view item »


Faust
Just Us

Faust are back to scare the living shit out of us and follow up on the most pressing questions of their career -- like "Why don't you eat carrots?" - with a brand new record. The seasoned krautrock crew plotted, designed, built and tore down three new tracks for j U s t (also known as Just Us, in a confusi...view item »


Various
The Reverb Conspiracy Volume 3

Some bygone righteousness on The Reverb Conspiracy Volume 3. Another top draw compilation from those cats at Fuzz Club, with four sides of pure mysticism. One for the serious revivalist, full of tripped out acidic guitars, spirit cleansing drones, horns, drums and all the requirements needed for enlightenment. Sounds of the past an...view item »


Temples
Sun Structures

Are you wanting an unrelenting hit album that you will sing all through the summer? If so then this could be it. Temples early singles impressed; variously recalling Teardrop Explodes, Love, T-Rex, Tame I...view item »


La Hell Gang
Thru Me Again

With a name like LA Hell Gang you might expect this to be ferocious riff-laden testosterock but actually 'Thru Me Again' is a slow drifting biker psych excursion full of slow, hazy grooves to soundtrack your smoky summer. Mr post-it's been at it again, saying "Rocket from the Tombs played too slowly"...view item »


Kreidler
ABC

Dusseldorf based post-rock pioneers Kreidler are now in their twentieth year on planet music, along with bands like Tortoise and Do Make Say Think melding the sounds of Krautrock, prog rock and electronica to create a whole new genre, Many copyists have followed since then bu...view item »


Verma
Sunrunner

Verma return this week with an LP on Trouble In Mind, who’ve been putting out a lot of good records lately. I’ve encountered this lot before on a 7” they did for HoZac but this is my first chance to get properly involved with their churning, volatile kraut-psych. The formula is fairly simple, singer Whitney Johnson soar...view item »


The Chemistry Experiment
Gongs Played By Voice

Pastoral prog from Nottingham-based quintet The Chemistry Experiment. Rather than literally enacting its title, Gongs Played By Voices adheres to the British prog tradition of discussing nature and the seasons with liberal use of fantastical lyrics and surreal storytelling. Actual gongs played by voices would’ve b...view item »

Six Organs of Admittance
Hexadic

Some scuzzed out mutations from Six Organs of Admittance. Hexadic is the new full length from the man that is Ben Chasny. Apparently, he's pioneered some new fangled compositional devices for this one, cause he had to write something heavier than Nick Clegg's woebegone conscience. Chocka with super f...view item »


The Black Angels
Passover

The Black Angels are a psychedelic rock band from Austin, Texas. Passover is their debut album. The band describe themselves as playing “Native American drone ‘n’ roll”. This psych-rock classic is available on a limited edition cassette of 1500 hand-numbered copies in a c...view item »


Atomikyla
Erkale

Finnish psych supergroup Atomikyla unites guitarist/vocalist J Vanhanen and bassist T Hietamaki from Oranssi Pazuzu with drummer J Ramanen and guitarist/vocalist V Ajomo from Dark Buddha Rising for a thunderous foray into nightmarish bad trip territory. The quartet take the heaviest elements of both outfits and meld them into a single ...view item »


Electric Moon
Inferno

German psychedelic rockers Electric Moon present an official CD release of their 2011 album (previously available on CD-R and LP) which takes the listener on a journey through the mind’s eye and deep into the heart of the universe. Engagingly loose and spacious, ‘Inferno’ evokes the sounds and atmospheres ...view item »


Kooba Tercu
Kooba Tercu

Self titled debut album from Kooba Tercu. Consisting of Johnny Tercu and his ‘crew’, they come across as a sort of Greek demented version of Henry Townsend with added distortion. Deeply rooted in the current state of affairs in Athens there’s a distinctive no-future aura around the record. Out on vinyl LP from ...view item »


Julian Cope
Trip Adviser (The Very Best Of Julian Cope 1999-2014)

Julian Cope, he of the infinite interest in all things psychedelic, compiles what he reckons to be his greatest material from the period 1999-2014. Sixteen tracks of Cope! All sorts of madness lies within Trip Advizer (nice title Julian!), which is released on Lord Yatesbury, a spin off...view item »


Plank!
Pick Sick (Remix) / Self Harm

Plank are a bunch of new lads on the block crafting sweet variants on Krautrock themes. Made up of guitarist and synth player Dave Rowe, bassist Edward Troup and drummer, Jonathon Winbolt-Lewis Plank! are a fantastically metronomic and fiendish tight band. As far as I know this is their debut 7" and it's a fine start. A-side 'Pick Sick (Remix)' ...view item »


Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart
Providence College, Rhode Island, April 26th 1975

Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart were childhood friends. Both men viewed music from a different perspective than most - twisted, original, musically adept. Beefheart had fallen out with Zappa after Trout Mask Replica was released, Beefheart accusing Zappa of marketing him as a freak. The Pair reunited ...view item »


Sleep Of Monsters
Produces Reason

From the singer of Babylon Whores, Ike Vil, comes this new occult rock album by Sleep of Monsters, rumoured about but only just released in the UK. With Sami Hassinen on guitar, drummer Pätkä Rantala, and keyboard player Janne Immonen alongside Mäiha on bass and guitar mastery from Uula Korhonen. Vinyl and CD....view item »


The Yellow Moon Band
Barehed / Reign

On Yellow vinyl (the good people at Static Caravan don't just throw these things together), having never heard these before for some reason I was expecting this to feature Warp like electronics but no its a 1 minute progressive metal jam. Cream, Led Zep type of thing. Not for me. More to my liking is the B side which is much more tuneful slice o...view item »


Fu Manchu
Gigantoid

Stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu are approaching their quarter-century anniversary, but they've still got some new riffs in them. 'Gigantoid' is their latest full-length, continuing their fuzzy, pummelling legacy of neanderthal repetitive desert-rock riffing, scorched-earth guitar solos and monotone drawled vocals....view item »


Expo '70
July 18, 2004

Tenth anniversary edition of July 18, 2004 by Expo ‘70. Heavily influenced by Kosmiche and the surrounding ambient music, it’s a journey into the potential of guitars and FX. Think the beatless excursions of Popol Vuh and Ash Ra Tempel. Out on Cassette and vinyl LP from Sonic Meditations....view item »


Night Flights
Night Flights Vol: 1

This ambient act have studied the likes of Brian Eno (who liked to write about aeroplanes himself, in his way), Tangerine Dream and Stars of the Lid, making a record of organic and wonderfully dated compositions through synthwork and soundscaping. 'Night Flights Vol. 1' is recommended for all those in need of a spaced out meditation or two -- or...view item »


Zoltan
Sixty Minute Zoom

Here's an all important delivery of spaced-out, sci-fi prog rock for y'all. Zoltan's 'Sixty Minute Zoom' is unapologetic about its synth-soundtracked fictions and geeky narratives, instead folding them into twenty-minute suites based on dystopian novels from the '20s. Electronic prog rock isn't much cooler than middle-class rock band prog r...view item »


McKay
Into You

‘Tis the season for re-releases here at Norman Records. Into You comes to you from 1978, with swell guitar licks, dreamy riffs and, despite the fact its been aging for over 30 years, a really fresh feel. Although McKay never intended to go big - they only sold the 300 pressings locally and gave them to friends - t...view item »


Ellis Island Sound
Divisions

Ellis Island Sound always have to be merging one genre with another, and what results is a musical marriage so preposterous it takes a dude in a suit with a handlebar moustache to pronounce "Well, this is preposterous!" to understand just how preposterous it is. Their last record, 'Regions', was billed as a meeting of Can-inspired krautrock and ...view item »


A Magic Whistle
Secret Museum of Kind Men Vol. 4

A Magic Whistle is Andy Puls and he’s knocked it out of the park again with a pair of belters. Interpreting music from Tajikstan and Georgia - melding banjo and synth, voice and drum. The B-side is heavy on the whistles and pump organ. Best enjoyed loudly with tea and substances on a rainy...view item »


Gurgles
Summer in the Sun

Bradford based odd fuzzy poppers Gurgles return with a brand new cassette on their own Saltaire Recordings (ah Saltaire - nice innit?). It's produced by MJ from the Hookworms and it is limited to just 30 copies. Not only that, I can safely say that it's the only item we have in stock which comes wrapped in a leaf. ...view item »

3eese
This Spooky Shit

Spaced-out, electronic rambling from Leeds duo 3eese. Sometimes I worry that in our our age of hyper-availability and exposure there are no more really weird records and then something like this arrives. Modulated cornet playing over John Carpenter-worshipping synths, demonic vocals and drum machines, like some psychedelic mirag...view item »


Jakob Skott
Taurus Rising + Amor Fati

A fresh mango of positivity from Jakob Skott. Taurus Rising + Amor Fati is a double release from this single man project. You need to understand his love of synths, I mean, he's really, really, really into synths - and drums. Lots of major scale madness, sounding like a mix between Neu!, Holy Fuck and Lightning Bolt's m...view item »


Pick a Piper / Squalloscope / Love Cult
Split

A 7” vinyl split, the like-minded Pick a Piper, Squalloscope and Love Cult produce a claustrophobic bedroom ruckus held together by shuffling percussion and icy vocals. The tracks are all diverse, but throughout, organic and electronic textures are jumbled together for a surreal, hazy vibe. Lovely screen-p...view item »


The Great Electric
EP1

The Great Electric’s own definition of their sound is something like Neu! If they wore Clarks. They could have been joking, but it’s pretty spot on. Somewhat of a supergroup, the band are made up of members of Hefner, J Xave...view item »


Acid Baby Jesus
Selected Recordings

The Greek psych rock crew have a few more in the vault for y'all with 'Selected Recordings', which collates together all their lost nuggets over the last two years into one neat package. Drenched in all sorts of things to give off a universal distance between the band and their listener, Acid Baby Jesus' music stays up in the sky, with us on the...view item »


The Keys
Ring The Changes

The totally pleasant Keys make psych rock as if it were commissioned by lazy day stoner Mac Demarco himself. 'Ring The Changes' is blissful and easy-going, as evidenced by single "Bad Girls" (which sounds literally nothing like M.I.A.). 'Ring The Changes' doesn't sound all that new, though, its infecting melodies, nostalgic choruses and 60s voca...view item »


Red Kunz
Teeth, Hair & Skin

Interesting-sounding collaboration gathering together the talents of John Sherman and Aaron Beam from heavy-rock heroes Red Fang with Luc Hess and Louis Jucker from noise-rock Swiss types Kunz. Written and recorded in a single beery week, this one is released on Division Records and lands on 18th August. Tracks:...view item »


Conrad Schnitzler
Grun

Electronica has a friend in Conrad Schnitzler. The krautrock pioneer has carved out a bit of history for himself being one of the key players in ambient electronic crew Tangerine Dream, and he also played in Kluster with members of the quite bizarre Harmonia. Occasionally, he hid away from the scene to tinker with soe of his own tunes, and 'Grun...view item »


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 sho...view item »


Ya Ho Wa 13
Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa

Ya Ho Wa 13 are quintessentially psychedelic. Recorded by members of The Source Family, a far out commune/cult of the type you always imagine when you think of when you picture early 70s cults, only without the enigmatic frontman and spiritual leader Father Yod. Heavily influenced by Neil Young, this is a more conventional recor...view item »


Mark McGuire
Noctilucence

Following the release of the critically acclaimed Along the Way, Mark McGuire’s new vinyl ep focuses on the 12-minute title track. Named after clouds that emit light during the night, Noctilucence is inspired by the quiet tension that we all feel on nighttime strolls. Revisit the haunting and elaborate co...view item »

Psych-Funk 103: Sa-Re-Ga! Psychedelic Funk India

A platter of hallucinatory spices from various Indian artists. As a follow up to their other guitar-centric odyssey's, Psych-Funk 103: Sa-Re-Ga! Psychedelic Funk India spans through the 70's until '83. It's full of tripped out guitars, super tight drums and raw vocals and horns. Out on CD from World Psychedelic Funk Classics....view item »


Contact
First Contact

Contact are one of those bands who accidentally traded their synthesizers for lazer beams and now have to make do with the gooiest electronic sounds you can possibly hear. Call it sci-fi, call it prog rock; they're making music that makes you think of the waveform. 'First Contact' is their debut and deftly weaves together wonderfully silly melod...view item »


Psyence
Phoenix

The new single from Stoke on Trent band Psyence is an unhinged, dark, metal-inspired acid trip of a record. It starts off mellow enough, then descends (ascends?) into excellent multicoloured super-noisy mayhem. Groovy yet face melting; Stone Henge meets Donington. Get it now on limited red coloured vinyl, out on Salvation Records. ...view item »


Pink Floyd
The Endless River

Pink Floyd are back with their first studio album in 20 years. It's a predominantly instrumental, ambient affair with only the final track, "Louder Than Words", featuring lyrics, and is in part a tribute to their deceased keyboardist Richard Wright. The double LP doesn't feature Roger Waters, however, because he's too busy doing other stuff.....view item »


Probe 10
There Is a Universe

A pie of fun and bewilderment from Probe 10. There Is a Universe is a trip down into the archives of proggy nonsense, harking back to times most definitely past. It's a mixture of jazz-rock-fusion, funked out horns and inter-planetary synths. It sounds like The Crusaders and Yes doing the score for a sci-fi action thril...view item »


Can
Soon Over Babaluma

'Soon Over Babaluma' was Can's sixth album and its first after the departure of Damo Suzuki. With vocal duties split between Irmin Schmidt and Michael Karoli, 'Soon Over Babaluma' saw the band take a more ambient and spacey direction, albeit with the usual dedication to sheer experimentation and sonic imagination (from the reggae-esque o...view item »


Emerald Web
Whispered Visions

New Age power couple Kat Epple and Bob Stohl named themselves Emerald Web because it sounded cooler than their earth names, and made music on synthesizers to sooth and startle; synth was the centrepiece, but the duo were interested in piling organic instrumentation onto their electronic foundations. 'Whispered Visions' took over three ...view item »


Maston
Opal Collection

Opal Collection is the new vinyl LP from Maston. Continuing the current dream-psyche-indie-rock vibes, Opal Collection is akin to the likes of Real Estate and Mac DeMarco. Think guitars drenched in reverb and lyrics brimming with nostalgia, OC will whisk you away to the west coast in the summer time. O...view item »


The Wharves
At Bay

A three-piece who act like a ten-piece, the Wharves make lush psych-rock with plenty of that stuff we like to call fuzz. They've got the same full-bodied vibe contemporary psych acts have been touting, but they also owe a lot to '60s pop and '70s prog, making them a bit new and quite old. 'At Bay' is their debut record. ...view item »


Lola Colt
Away From The Water

London sextet Lola Colt have a debut album here, produced by Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos. They've been making waves with their dramatic psych-droning darkpop sound led by a steel-lunged hippie-rock diva which is a bit Grace Slick, a bit Florence, a bit Siouxsie & the Banshees, a bit PJ Harvey. Their debut single was very impressive so hopefully t...view item »

A little gem of a reissue from Bureau B, with this overlooked self titled vinyl LP from Deutsche Wertarbeit.

Zim Zam Zim

Entering the kaleidoscopic state with The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. Zim Zam Zim is the latest odyssey from the archaic acid warriors.

‘Tender Crawler’ is the latest release from progressive Leeds quarter Monster Killed By Laser.

Somewhat unnoticed or not particularly well known, Blank Realm released this studio album with Bedroom Sucks Records in 2010.

Any music fan will tell you it's not the notes that matter, it's the space between the notes - and very few people have more space between their notes than Sun Araw, whose skeletal post-dub explorations are comprised of roughly half silence.

The Can record most likely to be introduced on evening TV by Fern Cotton is Flow Motion, their eighth and most pop record, insofar as it made its way onto Top Of The Pops.

MC5
Back In The USA

'Back In The USA' was actually the debut album from proto-punks MC5, released in 1970 and full of hard rock fury complemented with the good vibe hooks of pop outfits like the Beach Boys.

Phil sees the word ‘Australian’ and the word ‘pop’ on the same page and immediately sounds the Clinton klaxon. I was hoping to dislike this just to prove him wrong but nah...he’s right.

Buddy Miles
Them Changes

Them Changes is the 1970 release by American Rock and Funk drummer, vocalist, composer and producer Buddy Miles.

In addition to Jimi Hendrix, Miles playe...view item »


Mumpbeak
Mumpbeak

The office post-it goblin has been up to his usual business on this Mumpbeak CD. "Interesting proggy instrumentals, King Crimson-ish", he says. He's right, this is a CD of instrumental prog, complex and psychedelic stuff with a very obvious debt to the aforementioned Crimmo but also plays around with complex ...view item »


Can
Saw Delight

Mid-era Can was for dividing fans, breaking hearts and experimenting with lots of new ideas, and Saw Delight was no exception, bringing in two new contributors to the fold -- both ex-Traffic folks -- and taking on a general, ambiguous interest in world music a la Paul Simon in his ...view item »


Gulp
Season Sun

Debut album by the new band formed by Super Furry Animals’ Guto Pryce and his wife Lindsey Leven. Folky female vocals atop ’60s-influenced psych-pop and motorik synth-prog. Like a shinier Stereolab or a more bucolic Broadcast, ‘Seasoned Sun’ also features contributions from fellow Super Furry Animals Cian Ciaran a...view item »


Cincinnato
Cincinnato

There is a definite prog-rock/krautrock experimentation to the band, but the tinges of jazz influence are everywhere, and the new tracks ("Tramanto d'Ottobre 2006," which updates one of the original tracks, and "Tangasco") are basically pure jazz. The centrepiece is "L'ebete," a 21-minute mega-jam which transforms continually and shows off the b...view item »


Moebius / Story / Leidecker
Snowghost Pieces

Many brightly shining planets orbit the twin central star of Cluster (Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius). To be clear: as soloists Roedelius and Moebius have long since worked with all kinds of musicians whose congenial contributions add even more colour to the polychromatic Cluster world. Yet no matter how distinctly their guests creati...view item »


Boris
Noise

I don't know what's happened to Boris. I was never a big fan anyway but 'Pink' really had a startling power that pricked my ears up. It's all been a bit downhill from there, however. They've transformed into this kind of "alternative" stadium band, retaining their dynamic structures and eclectic nature but...I dunno. It's all a little over-worth...view item »


Watter
This World

Grails/Slint blokes. Nuff said.” That’s all the post-it on the front of this CD has to tell me, and listening to it now I’d say that’s a valid point. Watter is like a musical victory lap for some of Louisville’s finest - multi-instrumentalists Zak Riles (...view item »


The Last Minute Put Together Boogie Band
Six Hour Technicolor Dream

This 70's vintage semi-improvised blues jam would be of no interest to anyone if it weren't for the appearance of Syd Barrett on three tracks. On his last ever live appearance apparently, he plays guitar but doesn't veer anywhere near the vocal mic. The recording is muddy but just about listenable and amongst ...view item »


J.C. Satan
Italian Summer / I Don't Feel Like Dancing

Trouble In Mind have made a deal with JC Satan and this week put out the French psych-poppers' latest single 'Italian Summer'. It's a pleasantly stomping little thing full of hi-gain guitars and loudly delivered vocal harmonies which it's hard not to compare to Thee Oh Sees, but with a bit more of a slacker t...view item »


People's Temple
Utopia

The People's Temple seem to be on a Ty Segall-esque run of good form lately. Each release seems to be more impressive than its predecessor, and their latest album 'Musical Garden' is probably my most-played record of the year so far. On this 7" we've got three songs which were recorded in spring 2012, so I guess b...view item »
