Julian Cope
Self Civil War

Legendary British musical mystic Julian Cope shows no signs of slowing down as the 2020s begin, announcing his 35th solo album Self Civil War. It’s said to be the first in a series of releases titled Our Troubled Times, and each of the 13 tracks looks at the current state of world affairs through the lens of a different topic, all tied together by Cope’s unique vision.

Afuma
Songs From The Shore

In Japanese folklore, Afuma indicates a time of day marked by a spiritual or mysterious encounter - this enigmatic band name was elected by the duo of guitarists Taketo Shimada and Stefan Tcherepnin. On 'Songs From The Shore', they create a tremolo-laden offering which opts for spacious and sparse soundscapes.

DMBQ
Keeenly

The fabled DMBQ (that’s Dynamite Masters Blues Quartet, by the way) return with their 13th LP after more than a decade away. Keeenly finds the Boredoms-adjacent group summoning up their unique brand of noisepsychdoomsludge for a record that makes many others look puny. DMBQ are one of Ty Segall’s favourite bands, dontcha know.

Skullflower
Purity

Black psychedelia, noise, metal, drone... Whatever you’d like to call it, Skullflower are one of thee finest exponents of it. Matthew Bower is the constant at the center of this world. Recently he has been working on the project with Samantha Davies. There’s been a whole bunch of stuff available digitally, but with Purity, they return to the physical format for the first time in two years. This one's a total stunner.

Desert Sessions
Vols. 11 & 12

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), the master of 21st Century meaty-rock collaborations, hereby offers his joint effort with help from a handful of esteemed industry friends. Featuring appearances from members of likes of Warpaint, Scissor Sisters, ZZ Top and Royal Blood, this will mark the first Desert Session release in 16 years - but boy has it been worth the wait.

Tame Impala
The Slow Rush

“I’m being swept by this notion of time passing,” Kevin Parker explained to the New York Times about his new Tame Impala album earlier in 2019. “There’s something really intoxicating about it.” That preoccupation is at the centre of The Slow Rush, due for release on Valentine’s Day 2020 and 11 whole months after we got the first taste of new music ‘Borderline’ earlier this year. One of the most anticipated indie releases of recent years!

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.

Soden
Onwards... Towards The Tundra

Soden are a three-piece instrumental band from Worcester who play dark, low and slow music that gradually increases in its ferocity. A kind of heavy metal post-rock, if you will. Onwards...Toward The Tundra is the band’s second album. It follows their 2017 album Led By Foxes. It was recorded by Slabdragger guitarist and singer, Sam Thredder.

Kedama
The Complete Collection

Formed in Switzerland in the early Seventies by Christian Linder (guitars, keyboards), Richard Rothenberger (keyboards) and Peter Suter (drums) but disbanded just a few years later, Kedama’s short-lived career has inspired many with their take on prog-rock and that much-overused term ‘krautrock’. John Dwyer’s Castle Face label bundles up their three LPs’ worth of material, recorded ‘live in the studio’ or at actual live performances, for The Complete Collection.

Blue Angel Lounge
A Sea Of Trees

Blue Angel Lounge hit paydirt when they fell under the spell of the Brian Jonestown Massacre head Anton Newcombe. Not only did he ask them to support his raggle-taggle collective through America but he also signed them to his A Records imprint. A Sea of Trees was their 3rd studio album originally released in 2014 and has now been re-pressed and is available at a wonderfully affordable price. 

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.  

Elephant9
Psychedelic Backfire I

Elephant9 spent some quality time in front of an audience over the course of four nights in a small Oslo venue, and they recorded the results for two album releases. Psychedelic Backfire I is a great example of this trio’s post-jazz explorations, with material from across their catalogue given an airing with fresh improvisational elements. Six tracks of live energy.

The Telescopes
Taste (30 Anniversary Edition)

30th anniversary re-issue album on translucent purple vinyl of Taste, the quietly innovative 1989 debut album from British space rock act The Telescopes. Deserving to be mentioned in the same breath as Spacemen 3, JAMC and My Bloody Valentine, this edition comes with a booklet of exclusive contemporary photographs and new liner notes.

Patti Yang Group
War On Love

If you were a musician who was born in Warsaw, raised in London and resides in California’s Mojave Desert there’s a chance you’d end up making Desert Rock laced with psychedelic electronica. Patti Yang has assembled a crack team of musicians who have worked with Primal Scream, Manic Street Preachers, Jarvis Cocker, Deerhunter, Animal Collective and more to create War On Love, influenced by where she’s lived and the spacious place she lives in now. 
  • Genre(s):

Ramayana Soul
Sabdatanmantra

Ramayana Soul are an excellent Indonesian outfit who pull off a heady blend of actual Eastern music with some of 60’s-ish Western psychedelic music that originally took influence from the East. Sabdatanmantra thus reclaims and re-appropriates at the same time, staying gorgeous and groovy the whole time! Out on Japan’s Guruguru Brain label.

Jonas Munk & Nicklas Sørensen
Always Already Here

Always Already Here is a collaboration between Danish electronic musician, Jonas Munk & Guitarist, Nicklas Sørensen. The artists give their takes on modern and retro electronica, psychedelia and the minimalism of La Monte Young, Steve Reich and Terry Riley. The tracks feature synths and guitars intertwining in an experimental yet accessible fashion.

JuJu
Maps and Territory

Another album of sprawling neo-psychedelia, encompassing traditional European folk to sub-Suharan African music, Maps and Territory is the third record from Juju and sees them double down on their ‘regular’ formula. Sometimes they even touch on *whisper it now* jazz. Features Goatman from the band Goat, who I can only assume is the band's dad.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Acid King
Busse Woods

20th anniversary re-issue of Busse Woods, the second full-length album by San Francisco-based stoner metal band Acid King originally released in January 1999 and the only album they recorded with bassist Brian Hill. Alongside an accompanying tour in 2019, it’s a great chance to enjoy the band’s influential aesthetic at a point when they had it perfected. 

Hany Mehanna
The Miracles Of The Seven Dances

In recent times there have been plenty of compilations and reissues that have focussed on the musics of north-east Africa. Somalia, Sudan and particularly Ethiopia have all been in the spotlight, but throughout this run Egypt has remained slightly overlooked. What a treat, then, for Radio Martiko to press up a new edition of this 1973 LP by the ‘organ king of Cairo’ Hany Mehanna. The Miracles Of The Seven Dances is a highly inventive belly dance record that combines traditional sounds and rhythms with then-modern flavours - Mariachi trumpets, psychedelic electric guitar and (of course) beguiling organ.

Luminous Bodies
Nah Nah Nah Yeh Yeh Yeh

Luminous Bodies are an acid/psych rock supergroup with not one but two drummers keeping everything together. They are made of members from Terminal Cheesecake, Part Chimp, Gum Takes Tooth, Apes Fight Back and Psychic Pussies. Nah Nah Nah Yeh Yeh Yeh is their new album on Box Records, which is the perfect home for them.

Khruangbin & Leon Bridges
Texas Sun

Texas Sun is the intriguing collaboration between soul / R&B singer Leon Bridges and wayward psychedelic types Khruangbin. Both artists hail from Texas but represent different ends of the state’s musical heritage, here, they bring them together on an EP that has every chance of being an absolute cracker.

Heldon
Stand By

French outfit Heldon’s 1979 album ‘Stand By’ is being re-released on limited edition sky-blue vinyl, courtesy of Souffle Continu Records. It’s essentially a rock record, built on electronic equipment, and is filled with proggy doom, punk ‘tude and guitarist Richard Pinhas’ masterful axework.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Genesis
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets. Whilst the concept wasn’t that far-reaching, the six-month long tour that followed was one of the most ostentatious in rock history - Peter Gabriel really went for it. This is an album you need to make time for, sit down and listen to the whole thing at once, not something you can simply dip into. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Various
Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip

Brown Acid: The Ninth Trip, like Nuggets and Pebbles compilations in the past, digs up lost and forgotten classics from the 1960s. The Brown Acid series concentrates on the heavier side of things, rediscovering proto-metal and proto-stoner bands that the world has forgotten, or in some cases, never really knew. 

Loop
Heaven's End

I'll never forget when I picked up a copy of this one at a weird little antique shop in Nottingham for a couple of quid at the height of my psychedelia obsession. I'd never listened to 'em before but I'd only heard good things about this trio of feedback loving psych freaks. Greeted by big, meaty space rock riffing, heady atmospheres and Stooges-esque drone rock, 'Heaven's End' got continuous spins throughout that year at Uni and remains a favourite when I'm in the mood for some trance inducing fuzz-rock. Fans of the noisier end of shoegaze, MC5, The Stooges, Suicide, Telescopes and the Mary Chain will dig all of Loop's work.

Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets
Live at the Roundhouse

A joyous memento for all Pink Floyd fans, Live At The Roundhouse sees the band’s drummer Nick Mason, plus assorted back-up musicians, performing under the name Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets performing very early Floyd material at the legendary independent venue in North London performing in May 2019, including some tracks that haven’t been performed live since the Syd Barrett-era iteration of Pink Floyd played them in the late Sixties.

Michael Rault
I'll Be There / Sleep With Me

Michael Rault’s recent LP 'It’s A New Day Tonight' (confusing title, that) was a set of ornate, bespoke pop that leaned hard into late-period Beatles. Two of the album’s standout cuts - the punchy ‘I’ll Be There’ (closest Beatles track: ‘Here Comes The Sun’) and the more psychedelic ‘Sleep With Me (closest Beatles track: ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’) - now get treated to a limited 7” release. ‘I’ll Be There’/‘Sleep With Me’ is out via Daptone’s more rockist Wick imprint, which makes sense.

Heldon
Heldon.6. Interface

French outfit Heldon, with guitarist Richard Pinhas at the helm, were masters of weaving together electronica and rock, resulting in minimalist, doom-laden techno and bleak, apocalyptic soundscapes. Add howling guitars, rattling electric drums and undulating synths and you’ve got a perfect prog soup.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Heldon
Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale

Heldon’s fifth album 'Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale', released in 1976, is being re-released on limited-edition clear purple vinyl, courtesy of Souffle Continu Records. It’s an intense record, weaving together meaty prog and industrial rock with spicy electronica, to a fiery, aggressive effect.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Elkhorn
The Storm Sessions

Elkhorn are guitarists Jesse Sheppard and Drew Gardner. The duo got snowed in at Turner Williams’(of Guardian Alien) place when they were due to play a gig. Instead they ended up with Sheppard on an acoustic 12-string and Gardner playing a 6-string electric guitar improvising and recording two side-long pieces. Williams added some mysticism by playing electric bouzouki on the first piece and shahi baaja on the second. The aptly named Storm Sessions was the result.

Goat
Requiem

Colourful Scandinavian psychedelic crew Goat are back with their third album 'Requiem' which the be-robed psych-sters claim is going to be their 'folk' opus. We'll wait to see on that but in an age of internet transparency, Goat manage to keep a cloaked mystery to their movements which of course makes them way more fascinating than the Twitter twiddlers that pass for many modern rock groups.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Self-titled 2011 debut album on the Fat Possum label from American/New Zealand indie-pop favourites Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Ruban Nielson’s “junkshop record collector pop” vision took flight the first time around, as Unknown Mortal Orchestra scooped NZ’s Taite Music Prize the year after its release. 

Love
Four Sail

Four Sail was the fourth album by Love. It was originally released in 1969. Arthur Lee was the only original member to play on the album. Whilst it might not be as well known as their enduring classic, Forever Changes, it’s certainly an album worthy of high praise. It contains the song, Always See Your Face, which, in more recent years, has been used on a number of film soundtracks including Ladybird and High Fidelity.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Moons
Thinking Out Loud

Originating as a solo project by lead singer André Travassos but expanding gradually to a full-band endeavour, Brazilian six-piece band Moons now deliver their second album. Thinking Out Loud, much like their beautiful debut, draws influences from classic and modern folk, ranging from Nick Drake to Bon Iver, and gives them a slightly lysergic twist. 

Sula Bassana
The Box

Phew! A six CD box set from Sula Bassana also known more prosaically as David Schmidt. The first two CDs contain his guitar only Endless Winter album which now includes three new recordings. The next two CDs are given over to Silent Music. This is, as you might imagine, very hushed music made with fairly standard instrumentation of guitar bass and piano. CD 5 contains re-issues of split albums and CD6 is all unreleased stuff. A huge project to wade through but a rewarding one.     

Pink Purple
Red

Channelling the band’s vast knowledge of and deep love for British progressive rock and psychedelia, Red by American tribute band Pink Purple (whose name refers to Pink Floyd and Deep Purple, natch) was recorded in 2010 during a break from supporting The Flaming Lips. These 13 original tracks (three of which are a bonus download) have never been released before, and are made available on this limited run of 1000 vinyl copies ahead of RSD Black Friday.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe

If the previous 100-odd Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. records hadn’t slaked your thirst for the group’s brand of incantatory psych-rock then perhaps you should consider adding Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe to your collection. AMT&TMPUFO (Christ) have recently revamped their lineup for the first time in about two decades, but that doesn’t mean that the music they’re making is much different. Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe is still a heady brew of dirge and doom.

Jacco Gardner
Fading Cosmos

Have you ever looked into the sky at night and seen....nothing but light pollution? Well the increasing invisibility of our solar system is of a worry to Jacco Gardner who has created a two track 12" on the subject. His last album Somnium was a lovely floaty instrumental affair. These tracks were from the same sessions so we would expect more of the same.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dan Deacon
Mystic Familiar

Since 2015’s Glass Riffer album, Baltimore’s electronic maestro Dan Deacon has been throwing his whole self into other projects such as soundtracks for Rat Film and Time Trial. He did, however, keep nipping back to his day job of making his music. The songs on Mystic Familiar were formed over this time, and whilst he was returning to what he knows best, the experiences have fed into him expanding his sound on this record. 

Roedelius
Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978

A distillation of the highlights of the 2014 compilation originally released in 2014 as 3LP + 3CD box set, comprising an audio ‘sketchbook’ of German electronic music composer Hans-Joachim Roedelius during the so-called ‘Forst years’ working closely with Cluster and Harmonia. Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978 boils the set down to an easily digestible single-disc release. 

Krozier & The Generator
Tranceformer

Tranceformer is a sincerely bizarre record from Geoff Krozier & The Generator. Odd synth patterns spiral around in the background along with other random samples, while Krozier intones strange monologues / commands over the top in his Australian voice. Very rare in its original private-press edition, this Finders Keepers reissue puts oddity back in the reach of the masses.
  • Genre(s):

Terminal Lovers
Flight Out

Terminal Lovers are a five-piece psychedelic rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. They describe their sound as ‘fried rock’ and ‘rare burning groove’. Their new seven track LP, Flight Out certainly is ‘out there’ and comes in two very limited vinyl editions.  On 300 mics.
  • Genre(s):

Dwarfs of East Agouza / Corsano & Orcutt
Electric Smog

Frenetic style-blending Cairo trio Dwarfs of East Agouza (Kharkhana’s Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi with Sun City Girls’ Alan Bishop) join the distinctive drums ’n’ guitar of Chris Corsano and Bill Orcutt. A busy session - of gorgeous harmonies, glittering ambiances, rippling rhythms and occasional eruptions - ensues.

Maserati
Enter The Mirror

Athens, Georgia instrumental rockers Maserati return with Enter The Mirror, their first album in 5 years. They’ve chosen John Congleton to produce this one, which could be a wise move given his history with fellow instrumental band, Explosions In The Sky. The guitar sound has been modelled on INXS and the drum sound on Phil Collins classic ‘80s sound, apparently. Make of that what you will. Fellow Athenian and former REM drummer Bill Berry makes a guest appearance.

Various (Zmatsutsi, Tross, Houschyar)
Various Lurkers

On Various Lurkers, the Space Ritual label presents three dazzling cuts from its roster, all dancefloor fillers informed by kosmiche / krautrock influences. On the A-side is Zmatsutsi’s ‘Psychedelic Frogs Are Ok’, while on the flip are Tross’s ‘Gallium’ and Houschyar’s ‘Einstieg’. 

L'épée
Dreams

L’Epee are an indie-rock supergroup featuring Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel and Marie Liminana of ...wait for it…The Liminanas and Emmanuelle Seigner of Emmanuelle and Ultra Orange. Dreams is their first single and comes as a 12” with two further tracks. Surely you’re going to be interested in this, right?!

Abronia
The Whole Of Each Eye

With half of their six-piece line-up having altered since their debut album, psychedelic rock / desert rock group Abronia deliver a follow-up effort, The Whole of Each Eye. The most notable difference is that there no instrumentals this time around, with saxophonist Keelin Mayer’s vocals now one of the most prominent parts of the mix, itself a timeless blend of influences. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mythic Sunship
Changing Shapes

Just in case it hadn’t clicked, of course Mythic Sunship are a psych-rock band. They play fuzzed-out psych with songs that are as long as the distance between here and their hometown of Copenhagen. On their last album they found themselves in the world of spacerock-meets-free jazz - an undoubtedly difficult place in which to win new fans, but they’ve stuck to their guns and continued in the same vein for their latest LP Changing Shapes. I suggest you climb aboard the Mythic Sunship and enjoy the ride.

Mike Tingley
The Abstract Prince

We're a fan of bringing back hidden gems that are forgotten by history. Mike Tingley's 'The Abstract Prince' falls into that bracket. The South Californian pioneer conjured up this orchestral psychedelia-tinged slab of pop majesty way back in 1968. It now returns on vinyl with its themes (love, loneliness, war) beating as true as ever.

King Crimson
In The Court of The Crimson King (An Observation By King Crimson)

In The Court of The Crimson King (An Observation by King Crimson) is an LP which deserves a place in every record collection. The cover alone gives it a presence on the shelves within the ranks of other LPs, but the real twinkling gems are, of course, the classic, heavy prog of 21st Century Schizoid Man, the delicate psychedelia of I Talk to The Wind and the epic which is The Court of The Crimson King. The vinyl weighs in at a hefty 200g but the songs are so much heavier in so many ways.

RMFTM / 10000 Russos
Split

Dutch psych-rock scuzzers Radar Men from the Moon descend from their lunar abode for supplies and to collaborate with Portuguese men o’ drone 10,000 Russos. This is all at the invitation of the splendidly-named Fuzz Club label. The result sounds like a huge car repairs warehouse on a busy day. Great EQ on the drums on this one.

Texan art-rock icons ... And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead end their five-year silence with their tenth studio album. Grandiosely titled X: The Godless Void and Other Stories, sees the band sounding as fresh as they ever did, delicately balancing swirling, dream-pop noise with widescreen songcraft.

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.

Mr. Elevator
Goodbye Blue Sky

A solo album from recent Oh Sees addition Tomas Dolas, who records under the moniker Mr. Elevator. Given the thumbs up from the great John Dwyer himself, who is releasing the album on his own Castle Face imprint, Goodbye Blue Sky is all streamlined and sparkling, with Dolas utilising his skills as Dwyer’s keyboardist to strike out on his own.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Eyes Like The Sky

Eyes Like The Sky was the second King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. It was originally released in 2013 and there were only 500 pressed. Fear not, though - their concept album that flows like cult western novel - is here again. The album is narrated by Broderick Smith, obscure ‘70s musician and father of the band’s keyboard player. LP on Halloween orange vinyl with new artwork.

Dope feat. Fuck Authority
666 / 1381

Of course Julian Cope has a band that’s just called Dope… Here, this outfit is joined by Fuck Authority, in order to get extra massive in these two side-long psyched-up epics. Titled 666 and 1381 (the devil’s number and the year of Wat Tyler’s peasant’s rebellion, nice), these two slabs add up to some serious high-action weight. 10” on Environmental Studies.

The Vacant Lots
Exit EP

The Vacant Lots recorded the 'Exit EP' with Anton Newcombe from the Brian Jonestown Massacre while they had a few days off tour in 2017. Newcombe put in some real work for 'Exit' - he plays most of the instruments on ‘Bells’, for one. It’ll come as no surprise, then, to find out that 'Exit' has a strong whiff of the BJM’s about it. Rock ‘n’ roll is back baby. It’s good again. Awoouu.

The Utopia Strong
The Utopia Strong

If anyone was going to release the debut album by the Utopia Strong it was going to be Rocket. Steve Davis (of having an opinion about women snooker players' fame) and Kavus Torabi have maintained a solid DJing relationship for a while now. Together, with Michael J. York, they make music that sounds like Emeralds jamming with Cluster. 

OOIOO
Nijimusi

OOIOO are led by Boredoms and Saicobab founder YoshimiO. The percussionist also counts the super cool Kim Gordon, Susie Ibarra and Robert Lowe among the artists he has collaborated with. Nijimusi is their first album in 6 years and sees them making a psychedelic, shouty, distorted, record that’s precisely played with instrumental breakdowns that all good records of this ilk are prone to.

The Electric Prunes
Underground

Perhaps one of the lesser heralded psych-rock bands of the later '60s era were the Electric Prunes. Underground was their second LP released in 1967 and continued their tight 'n' heavy scuzzy acid psych sound. Like its self titled predecessor, it features fuzz-toned guitars and an array of psychedelic effects. Do not underestimate the influence of this one on today's array of heavy psych bands.    

Hangman's Beautiful Daughters
Smashed Full Of Wonder

Smashed Full of Wonder is an in-depth exhumation of the complete recordings of London-based psychedelic garage rockers Hangman’s Beautiful Daughters, briefly signed to Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld imprint in the late Eighties. The tracks are re-mastered and now available on CD for the first time, with an accompanying 12-page booklet featuring exclusive images and an essay by Jowe Head (formerly of Television Personalities and Swell Maps). 

Sonora Casino
Trompeteros

Sonora Casino were a ‘60s exotic, experimental psychedelic band from Peru. You may already be thinking after reading the opening sentence that this means their album 1972 album, Trompetoros, is a previously hard-to-get-hold-of  and highly sought after obscurity, and you’d be right. This is the first ever reissue, so sharpen your elbows and get ready for the rush.

Kanaan
Windborne

Debut album from Norwegian three-piece Kanaan. On Windborne they explore the part of the musical map where psych, post-rock and jazz lie. Tight groves, held down by their disciplined rhythm pair, spill out into over the top improvised chaos. This is a young band who really know their 70s influences, and can make them their own.

Tess Parks
Blood Hot

Tess Parks has recently been working closely with Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre (see this year’s I Declare Nothing), but this release brings us back to her strong and smoky solo debut. Blood Hot was released in 2013, and now makes a welcome return on wax.

Causa Sui
Euporie Tide

Danish psych-rockers, Causa Sui, have built a loyal fan base since 2005. This is due to some sensational live shows and praise from the like of Arch Drude, Julian Cope, and Uncut and Mojo magazines. Their sound draws on influences as widespread as electric-era Miles Davis, Allman Brothers Band and Can. Euporie Tide is their third album and was originally released in 2013.

Their debut for Three Lobed Recordings, Water Weird sees duo Wet Tuna (Matt Valentine, sometimes of Woods, and Pat Gubler, of Garcia Peoples) forge all kinds of sonic influences that shouldn’t go together - think country-fuelled funk and European psychedelia battling for prominence - and make it work.

Ramleh
It’s Never Alright / Kerb Krawler

With Fourth Dimension supporting both Gary Mundy (Kleistwahr) and Anthony Di Franco’s (JFK) solo projects for many years, it’s a red-letter day for the label that they can release a new Ramleh record itself. Available on green coloured 7” vinyl, ‘It’s Never Alright’ and ‘Kerb Krawler’ are both prime cuts that display both sides of Ramleh i.e their power electronics/noise work and their fuzzy psyche rock trippers.

Causa Sui
Return To Sky

Spaced-out krautrock impressions from Causa Sui. They bring the tight loops and grooves of a minimal rock group, but add in some slowed down stoner freak-outs. Return to Sky on El Paraiso Records is unapologetically psychedelic, full of heavy riffing, massive drums and surreal breakdowns that sound like something borrowed from Ennio Morricone.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Zone Six
Kozmik Koon

Zone Six are a German space rock band who play improvised psych rock complete with electronics and freaky soundscapes. Their latest album, Kozmik Koon, is named after their friend Kozmik Ken who set up the psychedelic festival Kozfest. The band are currently a three-piece led by Dave Schmidt AKA Sule Bassana.

TOY
Songs Of Consumption

English psychedelic/shoegaze/krautrock act Toy are coming up to a decade in their existence, and, following the critical acclaim that greeted their fourth album Happy In The Hollow back in January this year, they turn to the songs that inspired them for this eight-track covers album, Songs of Consumption. It includes tracks from diverse artists such as The Troggs, Serge & Charlotte Gainsbourg and Nico. They got the idea from the 7” bonus single of covers that accompanied the Dinked and Rough Trade versions of Happy In The Hollow, and three of those are included here.

The Cult of Free Love / Magic Seas
Visions / Count In Threes

Visons / Count In Threes is a split 12” by enigmatic North Wales psych band The Cult Of Free Love and Chelmsford band Magic Seas. The Cult Of Free love are thought to be made up from members of The Northern Star Collective but remain tight-lipped on who their members actually are. Magic Seas were lucky enough to get their contribution to this record produced by Mark Gardener of Ride.

L'épée
Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider is the second single from the album Diabolique by indie supergroup L’Epee. The band are Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lionel & Marie Liminana of The Liminanas and Emmanuel Seigner of Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. The three-track 12” contains an exclusive non-LP track, Shiny Shiny. If you’re wondering, the title track is an original song and not a cover of the classic Suicide track.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972

The weird anachronistic blues rock of Captain Beefheart is celebrated in 'Sun Zoom Spark', a monstrous boxset which collects four of his early 70s recordings: 'Like My Decals Off, Baby', 'The Spotlight Kid', 'Clear Spot' and a record of out-takes called all appear. 'Sun Zoom Spark' is a good find for newly initiated Beefheart fans who want to go further into his story, as well as for completlist fans out there.

Drew Millward
Norman Records screen-printed poster

Available in only very limited numbers, we’ve once again teamed up with Leeds-based visual artist Drew Millward for a specially illustrated, screen-printed poster. It boasts Millward’s intricate and striking visual style "Custom Hand Drawn Illustrations for the Modern World" as he puts it. Millward's unique, often psychedelic visual work has been created for the likes of (amongst many others) Mogwai, Bon Iver, Melvins and Sonic Youth. He's such a legend, he's even signed and numbered each poster for us.

Jimi Hendrix
Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts

Jimi Hendrix’s live performances were legendary. He always did something different, be it setting fire to his guitar, opening his set with the title track from The Beatles’ newly released Sgt. Pepper or stopping his set to pay tribute to Cream by playing an impromptu version of Sunshine Of Your Love. Here we have Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts an 8 LP box set featuring four concerts from the legendary New York venue.

Bushpilot
Live From Brotherswater

Recorded in 1993. A beautiful mixture of post-punk, krautrock funk jams, this is the first in a series releases forthcoming on God Unknown Records by legendary 1990s Leeds Can enthusiasts Bushpilot. As well as Can you can hear the influence of Slint, Talk Talk and James Brown.

The Taj-Mahal Travelers
July 15, 1972

I guess you could call The Taj Mahal Travellers an experimental psychedelic jam band. They were formed in Tokyo by Japanese Underground legend Takehisa Kosugi. Their flair for musical experimentation was not matched by their ability to think of imaginative titles. The album, July 15, 1972, is simply named after the day it was recorded, and the three lengthy tracks are simply named after the time they started and finished, take the opening track,'The Taj-Mahal Travelers Between 6:20 - 6:46 P.M.', as an example. Kosugi was also known for his involvement with Hi Re Centre and Group Ongaku.

Scattered Purgatory
Lost Ethnography of the Miscanthus Ocean

Taiwanese experimentalists Scattered Purgatory, whose sound is pitched somewhere between the crazier end of krautrock and left-field metal, re-issue this compilation of material consisting of some of their earliest work, dating from 2013-2014. Originally released on cassette only, Lost Ethnography of the Miscanthus Ocean now appears on double gold-coloured vinyl.

Dos Santos
Logos

Chicago group Dos Santos have an excellent approach, working with South American styles like cumbia and caminante and working them in with touches of psychedelia and tightly textural post-rock. Really it's a rich and forward-looking sound that makes all the combinations sound entirely natural. Logos is released by International Anthem.

Pink Floyd
The Later Years 1987 -2019

An incredible 18 set collection that is to include five CDs, six Blu-rays and five DVDs containing remixed albums, previously unreleased audio, concert films, never-before-seen footage and so much more.

Irmin Schmidt
Villa Wunderbar

Irmin Schmidt was one of the founding members of brilliant German band Can. Villa Wunderbar is a four LP box set of his solo ventures. The first two LPs compile the best stuff from his solo albums, recorded over a period of over 30 years, whilst the other two LPs are the best of his TV and film soundtrack work compiled by none other than German filmmaker Wim Wenders.

Terminal Cheesecake
Le Sacre Du Lievre

Psych/Dub/Industrial legends Terminal Cheesecake return with their second album since their lengthy break. La Sacre Du Lievre is the follow-up to 2016’s Dandelion Sauce Of The Ancients. It sees them pushing the boundaries of psychedelic noise to beyond what was previously thought possible. LP on Box Records.

Os Noctambulos
Silence Kills

Os Noctambulos hail from Paris, France and not Sao Paulo or Lisbon as their name may lead you to believe. They play reverb-soaked ‘60s surf-psych and they do it well. Silence Kills is their latest album. It sticks to their tried and trusted formula with them being subscribers to the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ school of thought. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Modern Nature
How To Live

Modern Nature took their name from a phrase in filmmaker Derek Jarman’s diaries. Group leader, Jack Cooper, wanted new album How To Live to reflect the point where town and country meet - their mix of Can, Caravan and Talk Talk influences allows the music to flow between motorik beats, pastoral folk rock and experimentalism.

Nolan Potter's Nightmare Band
Nightmare Forever

Boasting hazy, jazzy psychedelia inspired by the likes of Tolkien, Leary and the more extreme end of Led Zep, John Dwyer’s Castle Face Records releases the latest album from Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band. With complex riffs and arrangements, Nightmare Forever is a much more conceptual effort than their previous records.

Wooden Shjips
Vol.1

And it’s freaky … deaky … Mc … deluxe. Verily, this 21st Century has produced few bands freakier or deekier than San Franciscan ultra-psychsters Wooden Shjips. 2008’s ‘Vol. 1’ was the first that many of us heard from a group who, more than a decade on from this album’s release, have become something of psych-rock royalty. Collecting some of Wooden Shjips’ early vinyl-only releases on one record, this set is notably grittier and more lo-fi than the polished vistas of their later work. ‘Vol. 1’ is not dissimilar to what Thee Oh Sees were doing around the same time.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Elder
Spires Burn / Release

Elder’s 2012 EP Spires Burn/Release gets reissued by Stickman Records (Motorpsycho, The Wedding Present). This is a superb stoner/doom two-track, one that combines some utterly brutal low end with the sort of vocals that would make James Hetfield feel like a proud father. A curiously overlooked moment in Elder’s catalogue, Spires Burn/Release definitely deserves its second shot at fame.

C.Y.M.
Capra

Mike Greene and Chris Baio got together to form C.Y.M. Greene is a DJ and also makes music under the name Fort Romeau whilst Baio plays bass in Vampire Weekend and records under his surname. Their self-titled debut EP takes sounds from the past such as komische, post-punk, psychedelia and motorik beats and gives them some updated treatment.

BEAK>
Life Goes On EP

Extremely Phil Band (tm) BEAK> celebrate their summer 2019 being filled with festival shows with Life Goes On EP. Apparently inspired by the sound of the Mexican equivalent of a rag-and-bone man (not the singer), the tracks are as intense and eccentric as they've always been. Also features a remix by accordion genius Mario Batkovic.

Anthroprophh
SRR2.5 Special Love Songs for Hardworking People in Alarm Clock Britain

Further proof that people will never stop parodying that Throbbing Gristle sleeve comes from the band of former the Heads guitarist Paul Allen. These are five tracks of heavy jams and throbbing electronics all unreleased except one and that only came out in a limited edition of 50 so you probably won't have it.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Holy Serpent
Endless

“Holy Serpent Batman!” is something that Robin never said in the original TV series. Holy Serpent are a psych rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Their new album is called Endless. Frontman Scott Penberthy says it’s influenced by the ocean - and on tracks like Lord Deceptor and Hourglass you can hear how the ocean’s movement may have influenced the ebb and flow of the music. 

Fu Manchu
Live At Roadburn 2003

Californian stoner rockers Fu Manchu blew the roof off Roadburn Festival in 2003, despite the lack of roof. They were that good. Live At Roadburn 2003 shows them previewing a couple of tracks from the, then forthcoming, album Start The Machine whilst also finding time to dust off classics such as Squash That Fly, Hell On Wheels, Boogie Van and King Of The Road.

Guerilla Toss
What Would The Odd Do?

What Would The Odd Do? by Guerilla Toss is a cosmic cacophony of rock, funk and dance that takes its cues from Todd Rundgren, Deerhoof and King Crimson. The album has been made on the other side of band leader Kassie Carlson's recovery from addiction which also included open heart surgery. Looking at life with a fresh perspective meant a move to New York and a new album made with a renewed vigour.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Paper Mâché Dream Balloon

For their new record, titled Paper Maché Dream, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have cast aside the electricity that previously drove their massive psych-rock tracks. Instead, they present a suite of acoustic numbers, still thoroughly psychedelic but this time more reminiscent of a 70’s children’s TV show theme than a blasted jam. A nice change, on Heavenly.

GNOD
Be Aware Of Your Limitations (Live at Roadburn 2017)

We have UK exclusive on this pressing of 300 copies of Gnod's incendiary live set at Roadburn in 2017. The Manchester collective were artists in residence at the festival and this is one of four shows they played. Consisting of two near twenty minute side long jams, their inventive nihilistic first set that day has been recorded onto wax and exclusively mixed by none other than Andrew Liles. Be quick. These won't be around long.

Flying Hair
Haunted Hangout II

Flying Hair are a psyched-out three-piece who are as weird and fuzzed-out as their fellows, but with perhaps just a little more pop instinct. Haunted Hangout II is, despite the impression given by the title, their debut album, and it was previously only available in a limited run of cassettes. Now it gets a proper vinyl pressing, thanks to the Casual Acid Tea label.

DJINN
DJINN

A ‘supergroup’ project formed by members of the amazingly talented Swedish groups GOAT and Hills, DJINN releases its self-titled debut album on Rocket Recordings. Exploring jazz more thoroughly than either band has ever done before, DJINN promises to be a journey to the inner reaches of the psyche.
