Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Mind Control

'Mind Control' is the third album from doomy retro rockers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats. It's a concept album centring on the brain-washing associated with cults, namely Charles Manson's hold on his devout hippy followers. Psychedelic fuzz-steeped riffs meet Beatles-esque vocals and old-school flavoured production on this fan-favourite of stoner, doom and heavy-psych. Check out the ace "Poison Apple" for a taster of what to expect from the world of Uncle Acid.

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.

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 they can keep up the intensity over this longer 10-track release.

Roedelius
Kollektion 02: Roedelius Compiled By Lloyd Cole

Hans-Joachim Roedelius was the overlord of Komische act Harmonia, as well as being one of the bandleaders for Krautrockers Cluster. 'Kollektion 02' is a celebration of his work courtesy of mega-fan Lloyd Cole, who hand-picked his favourite Roedelius' synth/organ compositions for all to behold. Get on this, my kraut nerds.

Spiritualized
Fucked Up Inside

'Fucked Up Inside' was initially a limited run record released to Spiritualized diehards in 1993, capturing his live show on record for the very first time. It coincided with the release of 'Lazer Guided Melodies', a notably minimalist entry in the Spirutalized discography. This reissue contains live performances of three songs from that record, as well as cuts from 'Pure Phase' and a Spaceman 3 cover, 'Walking With Jesus'.

Acid Mothers Temple et Rosina de Peira
Live in Tolosa

On this record, Acid Mothers Temple join forces with Rosina De Peira, a traditional singer of the Romantic Occitan language, and combat her vocal performance with the truest psychedelic rock they can deliver. 'Live In Tolosa' blends together the sounds of folk, acid and psychedelia and gives it a unique new language to speak.

The Bevis Frond
Miasma

Is the rumour true that Bevis Frond could afford to keep his music career going by a payout he earned after he fell down a hole in the street? Not sure but glad he's around anyway. Once part of the English psych scene that revolved around the excellent magazine Bucketful of Brains, Frond is ripe for rediscovery by the types of kids in thrall to the likes of Ty Segall, Kurt Vile and the new slacker rock brigade. This is the first of a series re-issue of his albums and is in fact his debut, first unleashed in 1987. A cursory listen to 'The Newgate Wind' reveals that it is a very fuzzy thing indeed. Haphazard psych music somewhere between J. Mascis, The MC5 and Neil Young which degenerates into a coughing fit at its conclusion.

Various
Kollektion 01: Sky Records Compiled By Tim Gane

Hamburg's fine electronic label, known as Bureau B, wants to introduce itself. So begins the 'Kollektion' compilation series, which attempts to look at all the different genres and aesthetics the label has mastered. 'Kollektion 01: Sky Records' offers up many different types of loopy electronic sounds, as compiled by ex-Stereolab member Tim Gane. Krautrock 'n' roll!

The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown
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. Full of tripped out horn harmonies, Brown's idiosyncratic vocal delivery and all the neo-psychedelic vibes you would expect. Think Zappa, Beefheart and the rest. Out on vinyl LP and CD Bronzerat.

Monster Killed By Laser
Tender Crawler EP

‘Tender Crawler’ is the latest release from progressive Leeds quarter Monster Killed By Laser. Released on cassette, the tape features four ambitious instrumental movements built around deft, cocksure fret work and synths. The intention was to squeeze as much as possible into every minute, the results being something akin to a dizzying mixture of Goblin, Rush and even John Carpenter in places.

Sterling Roswell
The Call of the Cosmos

Spacemen 3 drummer dude Sterling Roswell joins the crew at Fire Records for his newest solo offering, 'The Call of the Cosmos', which comes full of flying saucers, alien abductions and next generation psychedelia. 'The Call of Cosmos' is guitar pop that goes down a space wormhole, with a surprisingly shiny and ambient vibe sprinkled over Roswell's melodies.

Martyr Privates
Martyr Privates

Doing their bit to keep the vibrant Aussie rock 'n' roll scene alive, Martyr Privates present their self-titled new record, a collection of heavy rock tunes with indie and psych rock influences to their side. Martyr Privates have taken a bit of the recent garage rock obsession in their stride, but they cast a long list of inspirations, from Moon Duo to Spacemen 3. 

The Heads
Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere (Remaster)

Bristolian psych rockers The Heads have many highlights in their catalogue. There's their ace debut 'Relaxing With', the killer garage-fuzz of 'Under the Stress of a Headlong Dive', and of course 'Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere', their Neil Young referencing noisy groover'n'mover. Massive Big Muff tones, Stooges-wild style freakouts, acid-fried chaos, tasty riffs and rhythmical induced hypnotism.

My Brother The Wind
Live at Roadburn 2013

Psych disciples extraordinaire, with a prog-rock name to make Gentle Giant red with envy, it's My Brother The Wind! 'Live at Roadburn 2013' captures a performance that comes off the heels of their last record, 'I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity', a slab of impromptu rock that took under five hours to record. Taking democratic prog bands as their inspiration, My Brother The Wind try to make live shows that use each instrument as its own vessel, treating each sound as having equal weight in order to make the most layered sound possible. Did I mention they like prog? All songs over nine minutes or your money back.

Dream Boat
The Rose Explodes

'The Rose Explodes' is the second record from brooding super-group Dream Boat, made out of Elephant 6 legend Dan Donahue, who has been a wordsmith for Of Montreal and Elf Power in his time, and singer-songwriter Page Campbell, who offers up her fractured, crackling vocals. A bunch of their like-minded friends, from both Elephant 6 fame and Hope for Agoldensummer -- Campbell's old band -- were on hold to help make the music of House Boat, and their new record continues their soft, serene and unsettling dream pop. For all the mention of Elephant 6, this is serious, dark territory.

Krakatau
Water Near a Bridge

Australian band Krakatau’s debut “Water Near A Bridge” seemingly have their origins before recorded history, emerging from the primordial ooze & lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction. The guitar-less trio, Krakatau utilize organ, bass & drums to communicate their message crafting dense & heady tunes sprung from the seeds of improvisation & honed to perfection in the studio.  “Water Near A Bridge” is a vinyl-only release, pressed on 150gm black vinyl & includes a download code. The album is also available digitally via most online retailers, but we recommend you hear it on wax. RIYL: Agitation Free, Cluster, Popol Vuh, Godspeed! YBE, Embryo, Magma, Bitchin’ Bajas

Allah-Las
Worship The Sun

Last time out Allah La's had nailed that 60's worshipping garage sound but didn't quite have the songwriting to match. That record sounded totally beautiful though and its a shame to read the studio they used has closed. Still, 'Worship The Sun' still has that authentic West Coast sound that references The Byrds, Love and The Animals and will sit quite happily in the collections of those who have been listening to the retro influenced likes of Temples, Kurt Vile, Tame Impala and, yes, The La's. Their sound is your classic granny-glassed jangle and strum and is as laid back and melodic as any Rain Parade album. Bonus tracks 'Every Girl' and 'No Werewolf' on the CD and digital release; secret track 'Abez Jam' on the LP.

Camera
Remember I Was Carbon Dioxide

Come on, don't you remember when I was carbon dioxide? You don't? I was wearing the green jumper, remember? Yes that was it. Camera are a Berlin band who have a penchant for playing in public places without permission. The little rat bags. They play a form of kraut-rock but are not overly reverential to their forebearers, instead they hit on a motorik-driven beat and go with the flow adding in keyboards and guitars and seeing where it gets them. They believe in repetition but are not seeking to solely re-create Can or NEU!.

Syd Barrett
Opel

180g vinyl reissue of this sought-after compilation of rare and unreleased material from the legendary Pink Floyd frontman. Compiled from recordings made between 1968 and 1970, including takes from 'The Madcap Laughs' and 'Barrett' and two unreleased tracks that the Floyd had previously vetoed.
  • Genre(s):

John Sims
Palomino

John Sims is actually not a person named John Sims, but a band of people who just happen to think it sounds nice and will be awesomely confusing. Their new record, 'Palomino', is released on Fortuna Pop!, and shows off a twee application of hazy kraut-influenced sounds. It comes with a Silver Apples cover, so you know -- nice experiments only.
  • Genre(s):

Bitchin Bajas
Bitchin Bajas

Bitchin Bajas have been around the world and they STILL can't find their baby. Instead they have been chasing sonics through space and time. Good lads. The press release I'm working off is full of such pretentious twaddle "they have mapped and traversed their own ecosystem" is one particular stand out line. I'm trying to find something to hold onto, something that might tell you about what they actually do. I can glean that they reach far inside Eastern tonalities and use organ, synthesizer, winds (wind?), xylophone and autoharp.  The album is 76 minutes long and comes on double vinyl or a double cassette. That's all I know.

Matthew Swinnerton
Lampenfieber

'Lampenfieber' is the new record from Rakes' guitarist Matthew Swinnerton, who has branched out into solo pursuits such as producing and scoring. This record is far and away from the indie rock of his previous band, a collection of instrumental tracks based in the sounds its title suggests - Krautrock, motorik and experimental. It hints at the influence of bands such as Neu!. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Cluster
One Hour

This was originally released in 1994 by the legendary electronic duo who consisted of Dieter Moebius & Hans-Joachim Roedelius following an earlier comeback album 'Apropros Cluster'. This album condenses essential passages from jams into 60 minutes. Just imagine how long it was originally? What results is an oddball take on impressionistic electronica. The production is as clear as a bell, the compositions themselves are eerie and disconcerting.   

Les Vampyrettes
Les Vampyrettes

A previously unreleased collaboration between krautrock producer Conny Plank and Can-member Holger Czukay, Les Vampyrettes features creepy kosmiche and deep voiced German spoken word. A unique rarity from the archives. Out on blue vinyl LP with fold out poster and 3 x 10” vinyl box set from Gronland.

Jimi Hendrix
Rainbow Bridge - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Rainbow Bridge was the second posthumous release after his untimely death. Long bootleged on vinyl, this is the first official LP release in many years and has been lovingly remastered by Bernie Grundman on 180g, and sounds better than it probably did back when it was first released in 1971. It features such legends as Buddy Miles, Noel Redding and even everyone's favourite girl group The Ronettes.  

Khun Narin
Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band

It all began when someone posted a clip of this band on youtube with the caption  “MINDBLOWING PSYCHEDELIA FROM THAILAND”. What could be seen was a group of musicians who lived in a remote village hundreds of miles away from Bangkok playing some heavy, heavy psych. This led to American producer Josh Marcy contacting the band with a view to producing them. This is the result. The membership of the band and spans several generations, from high school kids to men well into their 60s and is always fluctuating and changing. Its going to be nothing less than interesting, this one. 

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 opener 'Dizzy Dizzy' to the inner-space sprawl of 'Quantum Physics'). 'Soon Over Babaluma' was also the last Can album to be recorded on a two-track machine, and as such represents the band's last work within the technical limitations that their later recordings were free of. This reissue LP has been mastered and cut by Kevin Metcalfe and Jono Podmore at The Soundmasters, London.

Irmler + Liebezeit
Flut

Jochen Irmler and Jaki Liebzeit met in the town of Scheer last July to prepare for an upcoming concert at the slaughterhouse in Sigmaringen as well as for a subsequent appearance in the Kammerspiele in Munich. However, they quickly decided to stop rehearsing and instead record FLUT - an album that regroups six improvisations between organ and percussion. FLUT adds another chapter to Irmler’s collaborations. The series includes previously-published collaborations with Gudrun Gut (programmed beats), with FM Einheit’s percussive bass-string playing, and with Christian Wolfarth’s uncategorizable drumming, pushing the limits of harmony and tuning to ever more complex results.

Harald Grosskopf
Oceanheart

Legendary electronic guy Grosskopf (large head in German) made the switch from drummer in rock bands to electronic music specialist very early doors before the end of the '70's. This was his second solo effort, neither this nor his debut 'Synthesist' sold well at the time but have since been picked up by a younger generation, fascinated by the pulsing electronics and live drumming. Will appeal to those into the kraut rock travellers and 70's kosmische music.

Earthless
Meets Heavy Blanket In A Dutch Haze

Some live psych show-boating comes courtesy of Earthless here, who unleash their brand of uncompromising stoner rock onto the world. They enlist Dinosaur Jr's J. Mascis and Heavy Blanket's Graham Clise to get the guitars going, suggesting they'll hire anyone who likes their guitar to scream with dissonance. Shred slowly, my friends.

Celebration
Albumin

Celebration are Baltimore's prime psych-rock outfit, mixing in a bit of soul for good measure and playing with old-school keyboard sounds for fun. 'Albumin' is their first record upon signing for Bella Union, as well as being their first in four years. Led by the belting, unhindered voice of Katrina Ford, Celebration make climactic pop songs with slick guitar grooves and sparkly synths, and judging by "Tomorrow's Here Today", nothing much has changed.   Tracks: Razor's Edge  Tomorrow's Here Today  Walk On  Blood Is The Brine  7' Sensei  I Got Sol  Solstice Rite  Chariot  Only The Wicked  Don't Stop Dreaming

Can
Unlimited Edition

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. Originally released in 1976, 'Unlimited Edition' is a double record compilation of unreleased Can material from the late sixties and early seventies, documenting their very early years and showing off how they started to play music together. It features vocals from both original Can singer Malcolm Mooney and replacement Damo Suzuki.  Tracks: Gomorrha Doko E LH 702 I'm Too Leise Musette Blue Bag (Inside Paper) E.F.S. No. 27 TV Spot E.F.S No. 7 The Empress and the Ukraine King E.F.S. No. 10 Mother Upduff E.F.S. No. 36 Cutaway Connection Fall of Another Year E.F.S. No. 8 Transcendental Express Ibis

The Moons
Mindwaves

'Mindwaves' is the new long player from The Moons. A rich sounding, 21st century, psychedelic space odyssey, it's full of well-crafted songs and infectious rhythms, steeped in love and destruction, peace and paranoia. Classic pop melodies brim with tight harmonies and layered guitars resulting in a rich and varied collection of songs.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Can
Future days

Damo Suzuki's last album with Can is a definite highpoint from the band's incredible ouvre. All the elements that make the band so timelss and radical sounding even now are here in abundance: experimentation with all manner of electronic and organic sound textures and atmospherics pinned down by Jaki Liebezeit's jawdropping rhythms and augmented by an advanced melodic sensibility. As with all the recent Can reissues on Mute, all the stops have been pulled out in remastering this for vinyl to ensure optimum sound quality.

Roedelius
Flieg Vogel Fliege

Hans-Joachim Roedelius: born 1934; first releases in 1969 with Kluster (with Dieter Moebius and Konrad Schnitzler). Active ever since as a solo artist and in various collaborations (with Moebius in Cluster, with Moebius and Michael Rother in Harmonia, with Brian Eno, to name just a few). One of the most prolific musicians of the German avant-garde and a key figure in the birth of Krautrock, synthesizer pop and ambient music. 'Flieg Vogel fliege' (Fly bird fly) is the fifth instalment of the 'Selfportrait' series, with musical sketches and ideas recorded by Roedelius between the years of 1973 and 1979 on a Revox tape machine in his living room. In contrast to the previous self-portraits, which he left untouched, Roedelius revised these recordings and embellished them with further tracks. Originally released 1982 on Sky 078. Liner notes by Asmus Tietchens.

John Garcia
John Garcia

With VISTA CHINO, Garcia makes music very close to his Kyuss roots, but on this self-titled solo album, he ventures into first-class, very catchy rock songs that commute equally between classic rock and concise stoner elements. Featuring legendary Robby Krieger (The Doors) on guitar duties in 'Her Bullets Energy' - John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the Californian desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton (Vista Chino), Mark Diamond (The Dwarves, Mondo Generator) and also Nick Oliveri (ex-Kyuss, ex-Queens Of The Stone Age, Mondo Generator) shows up throughout the record as guest musicians.

Land Observations
The Grand Tour

The album was recorded on the edge of the Bavarian Alps on just one electric 6-string guitar - exploring the potential of the instrument in relation to layers, rhythm, melody and timbre. The recording process utilised a selection of vintage amplifiers and studio equipment, intentionally enjoying the warmth of analogue tape for assisting to create immersive pastoral motorik.

Buddy Miles
Them Changes

Them Changes is the 1970 release by American Rock and Funk drummer, vocalist, composer and producer Buddy Miles. He was a founding member of The Electric Flag (1967), a member of Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys (1969-1970), founder and leader of the Buddy Miles Express and later, the Buddy Miles Band. In addition to Jimi Hendrix, Miles played and recorded with Carlos Santana, Mike Bloomfield and others.

White Fence
For The Recently Found Innocent

'For The Recently Found Innocent' is many things: the fifth White Fence album the first White Fence album to be recorded outside the bedroom fence (with live drumming!) the first White Fence record to be produced for Drag City the second time that Tim Presley and Ty Segall have met to record music. Inevitably, the collision at the intersection of all these winding roads is a beautiful pile-up of deep impacts, graceful lines and open space embodied in sound. 

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, Count Five, 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds into your blender, adding a splash of Sabbath and a dollop of early Soundgarden or Mudhoney, and you’ve got Austin’s The Black Angels.” - Associated Press.

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 and Dafydd Ieuan and ex-Race Horses drummer Gwion Llewelyn.

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 creativity is expressed, Cluster's character is consistently audible. 'Snowghost Pieces' very much fits the pattern: Tim Story, a distinguished electronic musician who had previous experience of working with Roedelius (the Lunz project, for example) and Jon Leidecker (Negativland, People Like Us), one of America's leading sonic pioneers using his Wobbly pseudonym, recorded an album of extraordinary complexity together with Moebius.

Can
Tago Mago

Can’s most sprawling and untethered work. The first side goes from the plaintive Paperhouse to the apocalyptic groove of Mushroom, to the uptempo masterpiece Oh Yeah, making for as great a side of vinyl as ever there was. Side two is taken up by the funk monster Halleluhwah. Side three brings us Aumgn’s occult channelling. The last side has the manic Peking O and the mournful closer Bring Me Coffee or Tea. Damo, Jaki, Holger, Irmin and Michael are all at the peak of their powers and in perfect cosmic harmony. Sacred stuff to be sure and never more so than on double vinyl.

Rog and Pip
Our Revolution

Turning it up to 11 with Rog and Pip. Our Revolution is a set of unreleased material and rarities from these two fellas. Producing their own psyche-hard rock vibes these guys are one of the bands that didn't make it in the 60s & 70s where the likes of The Doors, Zeppelin & Hendrix did. Full of righteous solos, wailing vocals and total freak outs. Out on double vinyl LP and CD from Rise Above Relics.

13th Floor Elevators
The Psychedelic Sounds Of

Oooh: 'tis a gatefold I see before me? 'Tis, of those lads 13th Floor Elevators, who made the electric jug what it is today -- or not, but it certainly sounds fantastic on the LP, which comes with the plain old record (in heavyweight vinyl, so not that plain) and the mono version, with the tracklist in an order that the band apparently intended. So if you want two LPs of the same classic album in one sleeve, come hither.

Death And Vanilla
EP

Oh kind people at Fire Records, fresh from issuing Death and Vanilla's much loved second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' have now embarked on a re-issue programme of the bands earlier work including this now impossi-find debut EP. This was the record that first informed us that there could indeed be life after Broadcast. It now re-unleashed on blue vinyl for those who missed out first time round.

Tame Impala
Live Versions

This Tame Impala live album has been pressed and re-pressed to within an inch of its life but is still a worthwhile document showcasing the band at the peak of their early powers. It is taken off the desk at a show in Chicago and originally a radio broadcast. It sees the band hammer through songs pretty equally split between Lonerism and Innerspeaker and is a good as you are going to get way of experiencing the live band from the comfort of your own record player.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
Blood Drums

When Tim Gane of Stereolab makes a new album and only issues 500 vinyl copies of it on a small Berlin-based label you can imagine that there would be a fair few unhappy people that missed out. Worry no more. Blood Drums, the debut album by Tim Gane’s post-Stereolab band Cavern Of Anti-Matter is now reissued his own Duophonic label. As with Stereolab, Gane showcases his love of vintage analogue instruments to create a one-off experiment that was so good it turned into a full time band.

Cluster
Apropos Cluster

Exploratory Krautrock / Komische legends Cluster had a good few years from the late 60s to the early 80s, making frankly excellent records of pastoral electronic soundscapes: Apropos Cluster is the first record they made after getting back together in 1990, and contains blissful ambience and deft experimentation in equal measure.

Comet Control
Comet Control

Dreamy, wah soaked psychedelic rock from Toronto-based Comet Control. Nothing shockingly new here but patiently, lovingly executed nonetheless. Lazy and hazy in a stoned Dead Meadow or Bardo Pond sort of way. Artwork by Prometheus-affiliate Signalstarr. Available on CD and vinyl LP from US indie Tee Pee.

Bo Ningen
III

III is a slightly -- very slightly -- less loud album from those loud Japanese folk Bo Ningen, a psychedelic krautrock group. There are still plenty of loudy loudy rock-outs, but perhaps with more of a look-in for the melodic and lyrical side of their work. I’ve seen them live twice now -- the first time was an accident which was a bit of a surprise. My ears are still ringing. The double LP comes with a CD copy.

Limb
Limb

Well, I tried Googling these guys’ music, but all I found was Youtube videos of medical professionals. So I am left no choice but to go out on a limb here and say that their self-titled album will an album filled with Limb’s half-sludge-and-half-minimal-bleakness sound that we’ve come to appreciate.

Vibrations from the sun drenched Garotas Suecas. Feras MÍticas is the second album from the Rio De Janeiro group. Awash with soulful vocalisations, tight guitars, serious bass lines, drums and an assortment of electronics and strings. They mix between their native styles such as bossa nova and gentle samba with laid back funk, pop and blues. Out on double vinyl LP from Vampisoul.

A Gilded Eternity

A Gilded Eternity was the third (and final in their initial lifespan) album by psychedelic sonic explorers Loop. They made a deeply textural form of white out racket that had a mantra-ish, transcendental quality, deeply hypnotic sounds that, according to Phil's review below these lines, could 'blow your face off'. 2CD set on Reactor and we could do with some vinyl to go with that thanks.

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 album art but I hope the baby's okay.

Pentwater
Pentwater

Pentwater do the whole prog rock thing right by name-checking pretty much every single first wave band there was -- let's just drop the words Yes and Gentle Giant now and be done with it -- and also playing some music. Mentioning their constant usage of "haunting flute lines", Pentwater is a nicely symphonic affair. Bring me more instruments.

Pyrolator
Wunderland

A distinctly German take on easy listening, Wunderland by Pyrolator (aka Kurt Dahlke of Der Plan fame) is speckled with weird and wonderful sampled and lush arrangements. Originally released in 1984 it’s stacked with the bombast and production tropes of the decade. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Bureau B.

Wooden Shjips
Back To Land

'Back To Land' is Norm faves Wooden Shjips' fourth album. There's something on here for everything, combining the hushjed vocals of Alan Vega, with the sjun-dappled atmospheres of West Coast psychedelia, and sjomething approaching krautrock's insistent chug.

Star Spangled Banana
Pebbles 2000

Claiming to be the creators of a whole new genre called bubble-grunge, and then claiming to be the pioneers of said paradoxical genre, Star Spangled Banana play a kind of gorgeous alt rock that uses low-end and gruesome amps to a joyous end. Pebbles 2000 is a tribute to a bunch of fun-time old people like the Monkees and the Beatles -- but, like, with a misanthropic rock aesthetic.
