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. 

Sendelica
Cromlech Chronicles IV : The Door Into Summer

Sendelica wrap up their Cromlech Chronicles IV series in particularly epic style, with IV: The Door Into Summer. A double LP, this features three full side-long tracks (the fourth-side has a nice visual effect instead of music), each of which is a deeply stoner-psychedelic as that cover artwork would suggest. Out on Regal Crabomophone.

Soft Hearted Scientists
Please Read Me / Moths Mistook Us For The Moon

Recorded for an as-yet-unreleased Fruits De Mer compilation, Welsh psych-poppers Soft Hearted Scientists made their return to the studio for a double A-sided 7” single. ‘Please Read Me’ is a cover of a long-lost Bee Gees gem from the Sixties, while ‘Moths Mistook Us For The Moon’ is an original composition.

De Lorians
De Lorians

De Lorians are a bunch of prog-loving psych-jazzers from Japan. That’s probably enough info for you to go on as to whether you’re going to dig the group’s eponymous debut LP. If this is the sort of thing you’re into then you’re going to get plenty of joy from the Tokyo quintet’s fusion freakouts. Wethinks Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart would have approved of De Lorians.

Tomorrow Syndicate
Citizen Input

Following up on their brilliant debut album from last year Future Tense and bridging a gap between their second effort expected in 2020, this is a special 10” vinyl EP from Tomorrow Syndicate. More confident and comfortable than their home-recorded album, Citizen Input adds more elements to their sci-fi/krautrock sonic compounds.

Motorpsycho
Begynnelser

Motorpsycho composed this music for use in a play: imagine going to the theatre and seeing Motorpsycho play alongside the drama! Lovely. However, this audio release of Begynnelser has been designed specifically for listening, meaning that it contains material and sequencing different to the actual performed play. Begynnelser is presented as a double 10” and CD, plus a DVD with a full filmed performance of the play! On Rune Grammofon.

Oneida
Positions

Yes that’s right, what we have here is an EP on which Brooklyn’s endlessly thrilling Oneida cover This Heat, one of the most remarkable bands yet seen. Incredible scenes. As well as their take on ‘S.P.Q.R’, they also cover Chrome over the course of 16 minutes, and round things off with a droney original. Positions is on Rocket Recordings, limited to 300 vinyl copies.

Cosmonauts
Star 69

Los Angeles’ garage-rock act Cosmonauts are close to becoming veterans at this point, now on their fifth studio album of sun-scorched, fuzzed-up psych-rock. This is the European pressing of Star 69, arriving just in time for the band’s limited run of European live dates and festival appearances.

Pink Floyd
The Final Cut

The Pink Floyd vinyl reissuing machine rolls around to two of the group’s latter day albums, thus completing the roster. The Final Cut is their 1983 twelfth album, and their last one with Roger Waters. It features lots of Waters’ Falklands-related anti-war anger, giving a bitter bite to many of the songs here. It has been remastered, and is available on vinyl for the first time in decades on Pink Floyd Records.

Jack Ellister
When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease / Supernaut

Jack Ellister plays whatever songs he damn likes, as evidenced by this great covers pairing on a 7”. Black Sabbath’s classic heavy cruncher Supernaut on the one side, and Roy Harper’s wistful When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease on the other. Both get a very nice reinterpretation from Ellister: turns out they can share vinyl after all. On Fruits de Mer.

The Total Rejection
Everybody Knows What You Don't Know

Everybody Knows What You Don’t Know is the second studio album from the Total Rejection, completing the vision for revitalising their mod and ‘60s pop influences that had informed their debut album Wrapping Yourself In Silver Foil Won’t Save You From The Blast. So sincere that they completely pull it off.

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign
The Window On The Side Of Your Head

Icarus Peel’s Acid Reign take their cues from classic rock trios such as Cream, The Groundhogs, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Taste. Icarus Peel himself felt that a different home was needed, away from his band The Honey Pot and his collaboration with Crystal Jacqueline, for new material to thrive. The Window On The Side Of Your Head is the new album and as the album cover may suggest, this man likes a guitar solo. Limited edition 180g yellow vinyl LP on Mega Dodo.

Zeitkratzer
Performs Songs from the Albums 'Kraftwerk' and 'Kraftwerk 2'

Led by Reinhold Friedl, Zeitkratzer are an ensemble of musicians who work with and reinterpret compositions by an ever reaching range of avant-garde and fringe artists. Their list of works include Lou Reed, Whitehouse, Throbbing Gristle, Stockhausen, John Cage. Now they turn their mad orchestra’s gaze upon the early works of Kraftwerk, specifically their first two albums.

The Quiet Temple
The Quiet Temple

Who do we find inside The Quiet Temple? Well, primarily Rich Machin and Duke Garwood, joined by a rotating selection of musicians with past experience with Stereolab, Spiritualized/Coil (Thighpaulsandra) (among others). Together, this gang have created this self-titled debut album, a groovy, jazzy, live-feeling album that covers lots of tasty sonic ground.

Silver Apples
Silver Apples

Pretty much the album which started the sound that is still influencing 77% of the music that comes through our doors. Oscillating synths, proto-kraut rhythms and repetitive grooves that were about a million years ahead of their time and surely influenced everyone from Can to Stereolab to pretty much everyone who has stabbed at a syntheziser. Brilliant stuff and utterly essential vinyl re-issue.

The Myrrors
Curved Entrances

Has there ever been a more psych-rock artefact than an album entitled Curved Entrances, made by a group called The Myrrors and released through a label that goes by the name of Cardinal Fuzz? If there has, we’ve not come across it. This record features two side-long jams that, as well as the obvious influence, also take in stoner metal, doom and a wee bit of Krautrock. Trippy, man.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Carlton Melton / Kandodo 3
Split

Get spacey with the latest release from Carlton Melton, those well-regarded purveyors of stretched-out psych-rock jams. They take three tracks of this 12” split: the other side belongs to kandodo 3, a spin-off from The Heads, taking an even more spaced approach to music than the mother-band do. On Creepy Crawl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Islandman
Rest In Space

The press release is eager to get the names of Baris Manco and Erkin Koray in there as a comparison to the sound of fellow Turk, Islandman. I feel that may be underselling Rest in Space slightly. Yes, there is a mix of Turkish folk with Western instrumentation here, but other than that, Islandman forges his own path, making an intoxicating mix of experimental electronics punctuated by distinctly Turkish instrumentation.

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.  

MOHIT
Yoghurt

Here is the second release by MOHIT, nevertheless featuring their earliest recorded material. Yoghurt showcases the avant-art-rock trio’s sound very well, with lots and lots of elements in play. The B-side ‘Reggaeezer’ additionally features the words of a homeless man named Marky Mark, who the group worked into one of their jams. Out on DVTT Records.

Abdou El Omari
Nuits D' Ete

Back in the mid-70’s the Moroccan organist and composer Abdou El Omari embarked on his Nuits LP trilogy. Only one of the albums ever made it public - 1976’s Nuits D'Été - but now the Radio Martiko imprint have snapped up all three records for new editions. Listening to Nuits D'Été it’s hard to understand why the public didn’t want more from this charismatic Casablancan. El Omari’s blending of Farfisa melodies and electro-psychedelic wizardry with traditional rhythms and modes remains enthralling to this day.

Abdou El Omari
Nuits D' Ete Avec Naima Samih

Radio Martiko kicked things off with a reissue of Moroccan organ-composer Abdou El Omari’s 1976 LP Nuits D' Ete. With their second release they’re going one better - Nuits D' Ete Avec Naima Samih, a previously-unreleased collection of El Omari stuff. Some of this LP was made alongside the singer Naima Samih. Psychedelic north African Farfisa magic.

Abdou El Omari
Nuits De Printemps

They love an organist down at Radio Martiko. The label’s latest album is Abdou El Omari’s Nuits De Printemps, a previously-unreleased collection from this late Moroccan keysman. We’re not certain when the tracks of Nuits De Printemps were recorded - judging by the cover artwork we’re guessing around the same time as El Omari’s 1976 debut LP Nuits D´Été, but don’t quote us on that. However, one thing that’s for sure is that Nuits De Printemps is a unique blend of psychedelic flourishes, ARP synth goodness and Farfisa showmanship in the Moroccan style.

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.

Bongzilla
Stash

Weed-obsessed stoner rock band, Bongzilla, originally released their debut album, Stash, in 1999. On its 20th anniversary, a reissue seems quite appropriate. The album contains all the downtuned riffage you could want plus lyrics about smoking weed, bongs and weed in general. Don’t do drugs, kids, but you can listen to Bongzilla.

Bongzilla
Gateway

Muleboy, Spanky and the gang, AKA, Bongzilla, released their third album, Gateway, in 2002. The stoner rock/ heavy metal band from Madison, Wisconsin, had a vested interest in all things weed related. The title, Gateway, is reference to the ol’ Mary Jo being a gateway to harder drugs and not a reference to the now defunct supermarket chain. 

Bongzilla
Methods For Attaining Extreme Altitudes

Bongzilla are a stoner rock/heavy metal band from Madison, Wisconsin. They formed in the mid-90s and are now back together following a 6 year break. Methods For Attaining Extreme Altitudes was their debut EP, originally released in 1998. The EP's three tracks clock in at an impressive total of 25 minutes. Rock on!

The Bevis Frond
North Circular

North Circular is an album that especially embodies The Bevis Frond’s twin tendencies towards the epic and the intimate. On the one hand, this is a twenty-four track, triple LP album with huge melodies and power-stance guitar playing. On the other, it’s themed around a ring road that goes from Woolwich to Chiswick, and was made with highly-personal record collector passion. In any case, it's a great album, happily now reissued by Fire Archive.

Spiritualized
Songs In A&E

Songs In A&E is Spiritualized’s 2008 record, themed around some intense mortality fears following on from Jason Pierce’s life-threatening time in hospital. Plays well into classic Pierce themes: lots of God, lots of Devil, and lots of drugs. The reissue, from Sanctuary, is on CD or an attractive white vinyl 2LP set.

The Monkees
Head

Head was an experimental freaky trip of a film released in late 1968. It starred The Monkees, who also recorded the soundtrack, and was directed by Bob Rafelson. It was written by Raffelson along with Jack Nicholson and featured cameo appearances from Frank Zappa and Terri Garr. The soundtrack, features such songs as Porpoise Song and Circle Sky.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention
Mothermania: The Best Of The Mothers

A curious compilation released in 1969 by Frank Zappa’s backing band The Mothers of Invention, Mothermania contained unique mixes of songs already on Freak Out!, Absolutely Free and We're Only In It For The Money. Created mainly in response to unsanctioned compilations then being released by his old record company, Zappa disowned it soon afterwards, but now it gets a 50th anniversary overhaul from the original tapes.

Major Stars
Roots of Confusion Seeds of Joy

Arriving much quicker than normal between your average Major Stars albums, Roots of Confusion Seeds of Joy finds the Massachusetts sextet in fertile creative form. New vocalist Noell Dorsey adds harmonic elements to the mix, while their typical formation of three guitars up-front in the mix remains. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Mattson 2
Paradise

There’s two of ‘em and they’re both called Mattson. The Mattson 2 are twin brothers Jared and Jonathan Mattson. They are known as a jazz duo, reinterpreting John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme being one of their projects, but on their 8th album, Paradise, they create a warm psych/jazz/pop fusion which is melodic and blissful. This is the first time they’ve sung on any of their records, too. LP and CD on Company Records.

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.

Prettiest Eyes
Vol. 3

Prettiest Eyes with what I can only imagine is their third album. This pair make completely gleeful noise rock, that churns away without any concerns. Apparently they make an even bigger stir live, and it's easy to hear why. The throbbing machines and idiot-savant vocals make for quite the potent combination.

Twink and the Technicolour Dream
Sympathy for the Beast

Ozzy Osbourne, Bowie, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate - they've all written songs about notorious occultist Aleister Crowley. Now, Twink and the Technicolour Dream take the reins with 'Sympathy for the Beast', an intense psychedelic journey which uses original poems to accompany the kaleidoscopic sounds.

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.

Paisiel
Paisiel

Paisiel’s eponymous debut LP has been a slow-burn success since it came out in 2018. The manner in which the duo’s ambitious sound blends drone, psych-rock, free jazz could be described as Krautrock, but there is nothing particularly Motorik about anything here. Rather, the manner in which driving rhythms backbone sonic experimentation have more in keeping with acts like Goat and Cattle. In short, this is a very cool record. Originally released via Lovers & Lollypops, Paisiel has now been issued in the UK by Rocket Recordings.

Donovan
The Hurdy Gurdy Man

Donovan’s ‘Hurdy Gurdy Man’ is one of those songs that you had to be there for. While it was probably quite profound upon release in 1968, to modern ears Donovan’s glottal-stopped ‘hurdie-gurdies’ make a period piece of this beatific jangle. Good thing, then, that the LP holds up better than its title-track. Donovan had gone out with The Beatles on their famous trip to India, and there’s a transcendental flavour to Hurdy Gurdy Man’s 60’s pop-rock that is similar to what the Fab Four did when they returned from their jaunt.

I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral

TFW you Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral. This dramatically-named outfit belongs to Faust guitarist Amaury Cambuzat. The vibe for debut release I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is high-intensity mega-drone, with deeply-treated guitar activity conjuring up fifty-minutes of soundscaping over just two tracks. Released by Dirter.

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.

Keith Emerson & Goblin
The Church

In which the fairly proggy Italian group Goblin team up with the extremely proggy Keith Emerson to soundtrack a Dario Argento horror flick. Dating from 1989, Emerson takes the film’s title La Chiesa (The Church) literally, by sticking mostly to a huge-sounding church organ.

Jowe Head
Widdershins

Jowe Head (of Swell Maps and Television Personalities) strikes out with a unique album of experimentally-tinged pop-rock-psych-folk. Widdershins genre-defying tracklisting includes covers of Einsturzende Neubauten and Fairport Convention, as well as a song collected by Shirley Collins, all thoroughly reinvisioned as Jowe music. Released by Easy Action.

Khruangbin
Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub)

After 2018's Con Todo El Mundo blew everyone's collective mind, Khruangbin have turned to legendary dub producer Scientist to freeze that album's tracks in time. Doing this has enabled the band to find the spaces in their music, and make them wide screen. Hasta El Cielo offers a different perspective on the band's psych sound.

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

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.

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.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
12 Bar Bruise

12 Bar Bruise was the first full-length album by Australian psychedelic rockers, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

This reissue comes pressed on vinyl that is specifically the same colour as Wrigley’s Doublemint along with reimagined artwork.

Various
Cambodian Nuggets

Documenting an amazingly rich music scene before the ascent of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in 1975, Cambodian Nuggets collects a dozen incredible cuts to have emerged from the South-East Asian state, spanning French and Latin influences and styles ranging from surf-rock and psychedelia to melodic soul. 

Soft Hearted Scientists
Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World

Some bug-eyed psych-folk from Wales here. Originally released in 2007, Soft Hearted Scientists’s Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World gets a timely reissue by You Are The Cosmos. The recent rise of Richard Dawson may owe something to this album, though SHS’s brand of British folk is far more day-glo and bushy-tailed. Sort of sounds like an LP Oliver Postgate might have made if he was into that sort of thing.

Soft Hearted Scientists
Golden Omens

Welsh psychedelics Soft Hearted Scientists present their seventh album, a four-part, double-CD suite of all-engulfing sonic drift: plenty of hovering electronics buoy up the blissfully-blasted acoustic songcraft, and the results are authentically tripped-out. Golden Omens is released by a label called The Hip Replacement.

Purple Eternal
What Things Did You See?

Described in Leeds Other Paper in a review of their first gig in 1988 as having “blatantly copied the Birthday Party, J & MC, Sonic Youth, and Speed-Metal Bands … they produced a thunderous enjoyable happy row”, and proclaimed in Sounds a week later, following a second gig: “if Purple Eternal came from New York instead of Leeds, they would be destined for stardom.” Now 30 years later you can enjoy Leeds psyche noise garage punk legends remastered and re-blasted. Relive the heady days you can’t really remember.

The Janitors
15 Years of Fuzz and Folköl

Is there a rule that fuzz related musics needed to draw attention to it? Cardinal Fuzz are releasing 15 Years of Fuzz and Folköl by fuzz rockers The Janitors. These Swedes have stretched fuzz as far as it will go, so it's fascinating to here how the band has changed over the decade and a half it's existed. That they got through several bands worth of band members too probably helps.
  • Genre(s):

Dungen
Ta Det Lugnt

Reissue of the third LP from Swedish psychsters Dungen here. Ta Det Lugnt received rave reviews when it first emerged in 2004 and it remains a pleasant yet potent haze of trippy rock grooves. Among all the riffage this thing also contains excursions into lounge jazz and the sort of droning organ pieces that sound great when you’re high (probably…). That Goat lot probably had Ta Det Lugnt on heavy rotation as youths.

Creepy, freaky, droney, Swedish psych-rockers The Janitors recorded a session for Fuzz Club in London in September 2018 when on tour. The resulting four track recording features cuts from their LPs Drone Head and Horn Ur Marken and another from their EP Evil Doings Of An Evil Kind. 180g vinyl LP, limited to 400 copies, on Fuzz Club.

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.

Errant Monks
The Limit Experience

This new LP from Errant Monks is a record born from some intense times. The Limit Experience of the title is the point at which the artist in question was pretty much at the end of his mental capacity. Having come back from the brink of psychosis, they’ve made a record of stark and arresting electronic post-punk. Think Mark E. Smith doing battle with Silent Servant.

The 7” is backed with Take Me Awry. 7” single on Fuzz Club, limited to 250 copies.

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

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard
Yn Ol I Annwyn

Reaching at least the top 5 of our annual “Doom Metal Band Name” ranking, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard releases have always been a sure bet for fat riffs iced over huge, sluggish beats, with a few synthesizers added for flavor. Yn Ol I Annwyn is Welsh for Return to the Underworld, which is exactly what the record invites you to do.

Selling England By The Pound

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

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.

Jackie-O Motherfucker
Bloom

Tom Greenwood and Michael Whitaker, the constant that Jackie-O Mothetfucker revolves around take their time over things these days. Both living in rural corners of California, the pair made their first album in seven years, Bloom slowly. It took three years to record, with Greenwood and Whitaker assembling a cast of new musicians to work on the project. The reverb drenched, delicately structured songs reflect the time taken and the locations the band mates now call home. LP and CD on Textile.

Richard Pinhas
Iceland

First time vinyl reissue of the first album by Richard Pinhas released after the end of Heldon. Alone he takes a more restrained approach than that of his band, with Iceland being a subtle journey reflecting the cold and awe of the country from which it takes its name. Also features 'Wintermusic' a 25 minute long bonus track from 1983 also released on vinyl for the first time.

MV & EE
Alpha Lyrae

Psychedelic couple Matt Valentine and Erika Elder make up MV & EE. Together they blur their guitars together to make a rather free-form slice of New Weird America. 'Alpha Lyrae' has shades of acts like the No Neck Blues band, created from a cacophony of folk and noise that rarely becomes clear, though it's sometimes laid back and easier on the ear. It's folk rock in its traditional form, in one way: it rambles. This is the first ever LP release for Child Of Microtones.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Futuropaco
Futuropaco

One man bands aren't what they used to be. Futuropaco is Justin Pinkerton, previously of Thrill Jockey psych-rockers Golden Void, and it's only him you'll hear on this debut. Pinkerton is also a composer of library and commercial music, so you can think of Futuropaco as him bringing his two sides together.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Soft Walls
Not as Bad as It Seems

Not As Bad As It Seems is the third album by Soft Walls. It was recorded to tape on a trusty 8-track recorder. The guitar-based, drum machine-backed songs trawl through rock, punk, raga, and lo-fi ballads. Thematically it mixes self-critical lyrics with self-help positivity. Apparently, everything is "cranked".

Dire Wolves
Grow Towards The Light

Dire Wolves are led by Jeffrey Alexander, who, among other projects has been a member of Jackie-O Motherfucker and run the label, Secret Eye Records. Dire Wolves have a slew of releases behind them, although, Grow toward The Light, is only their 4th full-length album. Expect spacey jams for the laid back.

Psychedelic Speed Freaks
Psychedelic Speed Freaks

Take a second to wrap your head around this one - Psychedelic Speed Freaks are a new garage-psych group based around the six-string skills of Munehiro Narita. Narita came to prominence in the 80’s as part of Japanese noise-rockers High Rise, and High Rise’s first EP was a live set called Psychedelic Speed Freaks. This album, by the band Psychedelic Speed Freaks, is also called Psychedelic Speed Freaks but is not the same record as High Rise’s 1984 effort. Got that? Good. This is heavy, rambunctious shredder fare for all you Psychedelic Speed Freaks out there. Think Jay Reatard.

GNOD
Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine

The mighty Mancunian GNOD juggernaut rolls ever onwards with a fierce five-strack statement, potently titled Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine. The music bites as hard as the righteous title, with repeato-riffs pushing the dense psych monoliths along. It’s out on Rocket Recordings.

Peter Harris
Adverts!

Eccentric artist and musician Peter Harris, from London band Piper’s Son, doesn’t know how to describe the music on his new solo album, Adverts, so I’ll have a go. It’s a teeny bit Elliott Smith and a teeny bit Roy Harper, with some cosmic oddball elements thrown in. He seems to have the backing of Lee ’Scratch’ Perry and Adrian Sherwood too. Vic Goddard guests. LP on Trashmouth Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Prairie WWWW
Wu Hai

Prairie WWWW are a Taiwanese band with bold instincts and an experimental approach to folk sounds. Their Wu Hai EP slinks around musical spaces that often lapse into ambient, but might also evolve into poetry, flute / synth tunes, or percussive marching. Well worth turning an ear to this group, they are doing interesting things. Issued by Guruguru Brain.

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.

Nawksh
Mythic Tales of Tomorrow II

Wild action from Pakistan, courtesy of Nawksh, who produces video games as well as music. Mythic Tales of Tomorrow II is a super-powerful brew-up of pretty much everything Nawksh enjoys, with new age sounds, messed-up LA-style beats and general abstract sonic explosions all involved. The results are heady. LP release on Guruguru Brain.

Red Kite
Red Kite

Technically gifted Norwegian four-piece, Red Kite, ply their trade blending prog, psych, heavy rock and free-jazz. Somewhat of a supergroup, their members have served time in Norwegian prog bands such as Elephant9, Grand General, Bushman’s Revenge and Shining. Their self-titled debut album is a complex and challenging beast, ideal for those who like their music complicated and loud.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Safe As Milk

50th anniversary edition of this classic debut from the Captain and his merry travellers. Though the title could be seen as tongue in cheek, this is the group at their most accessible with their blues-influenced work only just fraying at the edges. We're still a long way from Trout Mask Replica but this is a brilliant work and has been re-issued to celebrate its half century. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

75 Dollar Bill
I Was Real

Third album from 75 Dollar Bill. Their sound is something like ambient blues? The guitar sound is there, but it's sparse and often left to ring out. Bluesy riffs are looped while percussion grooves along behind it. This all makes I Was Real surprisingly dancey and fun. An incredibly moving album that offers a moving alternative to what minimalism can be. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard
Noeth Ac Anoeth

If you are going to form a stoner doom outfit, you might as well go all the way right? Hence this band from Wales, who’ve titled themselves Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard. Noeth Ac Anoeth fits just three large numbers into 50 minutes, stretching out their heaviness. Jessica Ball’s vocals set them apart somewhat though. 300 copies only of the transparent frosted vinyl edition.

Sordid Sound System & Sutja Gutiérrez
Bend Your Standards EP

The new Global Warming imprint’s very first split record, Bend Your Standards sees two artists take a brace of tracks on either side of a 12” EP. Scottish artist Sordid Sound System gets futuristic and psychedelic on side one, while Sutja Gutiérrez spins a nightmarish web of sounds on the reverse. 

Sex Blender
Hormonizer

Sex Blender (what a name that is) are a bunch of psych-rockers from Ukraine. On new LP Hormonizer (also a great name) the Lviv-based quartet come through some top-quality instrumental rock numbers. Generally speaking the lengthy tracks here balance Sleep-inspired stoner metal with Krautish wig-outs. Listen loud for maximum Sex.

Various
Even A Tree Can Shed Tears: Japanese Folk & Rock 1969-1973

This Light In The Attic compilation looks rather fantastic, historicising folk music from the tail-end of 1960s Japan. Cited as a period of growing political and cultural action amongst the country's younger demographic, Even A Tree Can Shed Tears arguably acts as a retrospective to music that was at its time unprecedented, with these artists seeking their own, particular sound through folk music.

Julian Cope
Autogeddon

25th anniversary re-mastered re-issue of Autogeddon, the 11th solo album from former Teardrop Explodes frontman Julian Cope. One of the musical and cultural auteur’s most intriguing and unfairly overlooked works. Both editions include the album itself, the Paranormal In The West Country EP and rare tracks ‘Conspiracy Blues’ and ‘Highway Blues’.

King Crimson
1972 – 1974

King Crimson 1972-74 includes Red (a favourite album of Kurt Cobain), Larks’ Tongues In Aspic and Starless And Bible Black (first time on vinyl in this remixed form). The LP box includes the 40th anniversary version that were remixed by King of King Crimson Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson. Pressed on 200g vinyl and features a 24 page booklet.

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.

Money For Rope
Picture Us

Melbourne's guitar music scene has really been on one of late producing the likes of Courtney Barnett and King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard among others. Add to that list Money for Rope whose second album Picture Us is a charming slice of sun soaked psych-rock that is unafraid to tackle the political issues facing Australia in 2019.

Causa Sui
Live in Copenhagen

Oh how I bet our Ian wishes he could have been there. Two performances from the approaching legendary Euro-kraut group Causa Sui at release parties for albums in 2013 and 2016. As they rarely play live this is the opportunity to catch them in their element, stretching and twisting their songs out of all recognition. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Bong
Thought and Existence

Bong are back baby, presenting two side-long slabs of deep space power. In the three years since they last graced our stereos, Bong have augmented their strategy of crushing riffs and momentous drum rhythms with extra lashings vibes cosmic energy. The second track, for instance, with its superbly portentous Borges-quoting title, is remarkably ‘up’ for Bong. Thought And Existence is out on Ritual Productions.

Beautify Junkyards
The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards

The third LP for Lisbon hypnagogicists Beautify Junkyards sees the group sticking to the rose-tinted music that landed them on Ghost Box in the first place. The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards brings together English acid folk stylings, Brazilian tropicalia, Iberian psych and the German Kosmische to create a style that sounds suspended in space and time. Stereolab and Os Mutantes come to mind, but Beautify Junkyards are out on their own with this one.

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and said respite can even be had on a limited white vinyl version (while stocks last, yada yada).

Here Lies Man
Here Lies Man

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

Minami Deutsch
Minami Deutsch

Beware: krautrock is on its way back. And this time, it’s coming from Japan. None-to-subtly indicating their inclinations in their nomenclature, Minami Deutsch combine Japanese thoroughness with German thoroughness. The result is a hypnotically straightforward debut, with tireless drum(computer)s carrying distorted vocals and wavy bass lines.

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

To celebrate the enduring longevity and indelible influence of The Velvet Underground Polydore/UME are releasing 'The Velvet Underground-45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition', which features 64 tracks in a six-CD package. Originally released in 1969, The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LP’s. John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU.
