Routine Death
2 Weeks To 4 Month

Lisa and Dustin Zozaya announce their sophomore Routine Death album 2 Weeks To 4 Months. Reflecting their roots that span Sweden and Texas, the new record combines the kind of pop melodies associated with Scandinavian indie with the kind of deep-fried pysch-rock common to the deep south in the States.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Dissolution

Finnish auteur Jaakko Eino Kalevi collaborates with Taiwanese singer Yu-Ching Huang on a new mini-album titled Dissolution. Over its seven songs, Kalevi explores new musical avenues in a concept that’s broadly about self-care and living well, while still sticking with his psychedelic pop roots. 

The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll.

Gong
I See You

Gong’s 2014 LP ‘I See You’ was the final album they taped with founding member Daevid ‘Divided Alien’ Allen. This is a fittingly zany spree for Allen’s last hurrah, winding its way through a variety of psychedelic prog outposts - Krautrock, kosmische, motorik rhythms, library jazz and so on. Sounds like … well, it sounds like Gong.

Dead Meadow
Feathers

Just what you've been waiting for is a re-issue of the fourth full length studio album by Washington DC rockers Dead Meadow. It blends heavy psych sounds with British influences streaming through from the likes of the Cure and the Stone Roses. This re-issue is an exact replica of the original album but this time comes with a bonus CD of rarities. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Green Seagull
Simeon Brown / Belladonna

Green Seagull are one of them there London psychedelic pop groups. New single ‘Simeon Brown’/‘Belladonna’ is an immaculately-turned-out duo of 60’s-inspired ditties. The former is very (very) Magical Mystery Tour, while ‘Belladonna’ offsets the McCartney-isms with a little more garage bite. One for those of you still mourning the breakup of Ultimate Painting.

Loops In The Secret Society

Here comes Manchester chanteuse Jane Weaver with a project that sees her re-work elements from her last two studio albums The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology, interspersed with brand new ambient pieces over two slabs of vinyl.

Jennifer Gentle
Jennifer Gentle

Following a flurry of incredibly exciting activity when they first emerged in the mid-Noughties, during which time they became the first Italian artist to sign to Sub Pop, Jennifer Gentle return for the first time in 11 years with their new self-titled album. Displaying all of Marco Fasolo’s musical passions, Jennifer Gentle is more focussed and technically skilled than the band has ever sounded. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Morlock
Ancient Paths

As the palette-cleansing solo project of proggy doom rock drummer Andrew Prestige, MORLOCK! present the atmospheric and retro 'Ancient Paths'. The result is a vintage slab of melancholic electronica, garnished with analogue synths, lo-fi guitars, while tinged with whiffs of Kraftwerk, OMD and Tubeway Army.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Maston
Opal Collection

Opal Collection is the new vinyl LP from Maston. Continuing the current dream-psyche-indie-rock vibes, Opal Collection is akin to the likes of Real Estate and Mac DeMarco. Think guitars drenched in reverb and lyrics brimming with nostalgia, OC will whisk you away to the west coast in the summer time. Out on Stroll on and limited to 300 copies.

Fred Deakin
Fred Deakin Presents The Lasters

Fred Deakin was once part of sample-happy electronic group Lemon Jelly. Now, going it on his own, he has decided to tell the story of the last family on earth, The Lasters. Lauren Laverne of Kenickie and BBC 6 Music fame has likened this sprawling sci-fi tale to Xanadu by ELO and Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft by The Carpenters. Well, I’m interested...

Genesis
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.

Jeff Lynne’s ELO
From Out of Nowhere

Following their terrific success on their reunion shows, Jeff Lynne delivers another blow in the soul for ELO with a second new studio album, From Out of Nowhere, released under the name Jeff Lynne’s ELO.

La Grande Armée
La Grande Armée

La Grand Armée are a Chilean instrumental band. They play a blend of stoner psych and prog rock that takes inspiration from ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll and blues. Their debut physical self-titled release is an expanded version of a three-track EP that had been shared around Facebook. Expect solos, expect wig-outs, expect fuzz.

Can
Delay

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. 'Delay' is a rarity in Can's catalogue, comprised entirely of outtakes from their time working with original vocalist Malcolm Mooney. Released way back when in 1981, 'Delay' was only fully formed when band co-founder Holger Czukay brought together the flurry of tracks on tape to make a proper record. It's now been remastered.   Tracks: Butterfly Pnoom Nineteen Century Man The Thief Man Named Joe Uphill Little Star of Bethlehem

Tame Impala
Lonerism

Come on now, we know the score with this one! Lonerism, Tame Impala's second LP, has undoubtedly become a modern classic. It catapulted the Aussie group from psych stone-rockers to a global phenomenon who sell out stadiums world-wide. 'Elephant', 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards', 'Apocalypse Dreams' - need we say more? 
  • Genre(s):

Modern Nature
Nature EP

Modern Nature brings us members of Beak>, Mazes, Woods and Sunwatchers, working together to do make something new, and outside of those groups’ prime territory. The Nature EP is the exciting sound of a group of musicians figuring something out together, allowing us to hear things like the atmospheric spiritual drone-folk of the 12-minute track ‘Supernature’, for example. On Bella Union.

Oranssi Pazuzu
Live at Roadburn

Oranssi Pazazu are a Finnish psychedelic black metal band, not that they necessarily want to get bogged down in all that genre stuff. They are just the kind of band to go down a storm at the Roadburn festival which is what they did in 2016 and 2017. Live At Roadburn will help you experience their blistering and innovative experimentalism in the comfort of your own home. Essential fact: Their keyboard player is called Evil.

Garcia Peoples
One Step Behind

Consisting of just two tracks, one of which is the astonishing 32-minute title song, One Step Behind sees Garcia Peoples release their third studio album in just over 18 months. The album’s ingenuity is down to the group’s two songwriters, Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki, who show how many influences and themes they’re able to contain in one structure and still keep it coherent. 
  • Genre(s):

Temples
Hot Motion

Incredibly 60s looking band in continue to make 60s influenced music shocker. Temples have been around for a good few years and with Hot Motion look set to make the so called 'big time'. The band they bring to mind is Kasabian but like, not in a bad way. Sunshine streams between the chords. On ATO Records.

The Dukes of Stratosphear
Psurroundabout Ride

The Dukes of Stratosphear were the alter ego of XTC in the mid '80s a time when psychedelic music was seemingly confined to the dustbin of history despite slowly emerging scenes in then UK and the US. The band adopted pseudonyms in order to make music more obviously in thrall to the 60s psychedelic experiences they'd had as youths and strangely enough the Dukes started to sell more records than its parent band. Indeed producer John Leckie was chosen by the Stone Roses after they'd heard his work on 25 O’Clock and Psonic Psunspot the two albums collected here. Both have been remastered and on the blu-ray you also get complete demos and instrumental versions.

Frank Zappa
Halloween 73

Musical oddball and virtuoso guitarist Frank Zappa celebrated Halloween, his favourite time of year, between 1974 and 1984 by hosting a huge show in New York. Before he decided on making New York his Halloween home he played two shows on October 31st in Chicago. Halloween 73 is available as a 4 CD set including both shows along with a disc of bonus rehearsal material and a single CD of Highlights.

Hawkwind
All Aboard The Skylark

Bloody hell, fifty years of Hawkwind. That’s impressive no matter what you think of their music. The space-rock voyagers may be pretty long in the tooth at this point, but despite their age they show no signs of slowing down - 'All Aboard The Skylark', their thirty-second studio LP (!), is as widescreen and bombastic as anything else in their output. The CD edition of All Aboard The Skylark also comes with a bonus album of acoustic jams. That’s a lot of Hawkwind! Good thing they can still do what they do like no-one else can.
  • Genre(s):

Kreidler
Flood

German band Kreidler have had a lot of genres tagged to them since 1994. From krautrock to IDM to neo-classical to avant garde and more, they all describe the band’s creative approach. 'Flood' is their fourteenth album. It’s an 8 track album on which 5 of the tracks are called 'Flood', making a side-long suite of Floods.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Groundhogs
Thank Christ For The Bomb

The Groundhogs formed as a blues band in the early 60s. By 1970 when their third album, 'Thank Christ For The Bomb', was recorded, they were morphing into a heavier prog rock band. It has been cited as proto-punk, proto-grunge and as "a masterpiece’ by the NME. The album has a diverse set of famous fans from the Damned’s Captain Sensible, Underworld’s Karl Hyde and former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus whose solo work takes a trick or two from here.

Jemma Freeman was a member of Bella Union band Landshapes before a solo project and now full band Jemma Freeman and the Cosmic Something, took over. 'Oh Really, What’s That Then?' Is their debut album following a couple of singles and EPs. Described as a power trio, their sound takes in psychedelic glam rock, folk rock and proto-metal.

Psychic TV
The Evening Sun Turns Crimson

In 2017 Psychic TV were commissioned to play a live musical performance alongside a showing of Derek Jarman's 1974 film 'In The Shadow of the Sun'. The performance took place at (where else?) Cafe Oto in London and here is the musical accompaniment for the first time on vinyl and based (I think) on an original soundtrack by Throbbing Gristle.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Diagonal
Arc

Heady, artistic groove-rock from Diagonal here. The Brighton band’s first LP in seven years, Arc is full of tracks grounded by great work from the rhythm section that’s often pitched somewhere between motorik Krautrock and the psychedelic new-beat style of someone like Whilst. Atop this we get vocals reminiscent of Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis (RIP) and some ripping, vaguely proggy guitar play.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Bingo Trappers
Elizabethan

Lo-fi Dutch duo, Bingo Trappers, released their first records through Shrimper, a label that has also released records by Lou Barlow, Woods and Herman Dune, to name a few. They play fab, melodic, psychedelic ‘60s style stuff that will have fans of lo-fi pop turning cartwheels with excitement - imagine The Seeds jamming with a Mike Nesmith-fronted The Monkees. Elizabethan is their new album. Limited edition of 275 copies in screen printed sleeve on Morc/Grapefruit.

Adam Stone & Dead Sea Apes
Warheads

Leeds psych-rock label Cardinal Fuzz (The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol, The Cosmic Dead) with a limited-run collaborative release here. Warheads pairs writer/artist Adam Stone and Mancunian instrumental rockers Dead Sea Apes. These seven tunes are a doomy mix of lo-fi fuzz-rock and semi-lucid ramblings reminiscent of the late Mark E. Smith.

Wellwater Conspiracy
Lucy Leave / Sleeveless

A short-lived supergroup dating from the Nineties that included members of Soundgarden and Monster Magnet, Wellwater Conspiracy saw its participants leave behind their regular sounds and indulge in West Coast psychedelia. This special 7” mints two tracks from their 1997 debut Declaration of Conformity - early single ‘Sleeveless’ and a cover of Syd Barrett’s ‘Lucy Leave’. 
  • Genre(s):

Allah-Las
LAHS

After a solo run out under the name Paint, Pedrum Siadatian returns to the womb that bore him, i.e. Allah-Lahs. LAHS is the band’s fourth album. There’s a palpable togetherness about this album, but their sun-bleached melodies and soft psychedelia remain at their core. On Mexican Summer.

The Clandestine Quartet
One for the Fossa, Two for the Wolverine

Powerhouse weirdo skronk outfit, assembled for a (one-off?) St John Sessions gig (and accompanying studio session) by Alan Bishop. He roped in his Sun City Girls brother Richard Bishop and his Rangda associate Chris Corsano, as well as Corsano’s fellow-traveller Michael Flower, meaning that this here Clandestine Quarter has both incredible firepower and wonderful dexterity. If any of the names involved is known to you, One for the Fossa, Two for the Wolverine is a must!
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Aquarian Blood
A Love That Leads To War

Aquarian Blood are led by husband and wife duo J.B. Horrell (Ex-Cult) and Laurel Horrell (NOTS). Following their chaotic punk debut as a six-piece band, Last Night In Paradise, the band have been paired back to a four-piece and bring a new sound for new album, A Love That Leads To War. Here, the band make sounds that mix ‘60s psych, the Shimmy Disc label and Damon and Naomi. 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Quarters

King Gizzard return hot off the heels of their very overtly, if exceedingly awkwardly titled record I'm In Your Mind Fuzz. Quarters offers more of the same listless, meandering psych rock from the masters of the much travelled genre, with four songs that hit ten minutes and ten seconds apiece. Ah, to make psych rock and love symmetry. What a life.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Julien Chang
Jules

At only 19 years of age (an age where I had barely learnt to speak) Baltimore resident Julien Chang is readying his debut. Chang (pronounced Chong just so you don't make an idiot of yourself) makes infectious electronic pop with nods to the jazz funk runs of the 70s and 80s. Sorta Toro Y Moi meets George Benson I suppose. Smooth yacht-ish rock that should be played all day long, all night strong. 

Electric Moon
Hugodelia

Recorded on an emotional evening in Feldkirch, Austria, in 2018 by German acid-rock act Electric Moon, Hugodelia is one of the greatest live albums this tight-knit group has ever produced. Over a dozen albums’ worth of experience in generating intricately woven yet unpretentious psychedelia has gone into a mesmerising performance! 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Squeeze The Lids Through Coming Window

Apparently dedicated to the humble pangolin - the most poached mammal on Earth - Vibracathedral Orchestra’s latest album project constitutes two massive side-long pieces. Squeeze The Lids Through Coming Window sees the group’s hulking drone compositions grow and push back new boundaries.

The Cold Spells
Interstitial

The Cold Spells are three-piece from London and Essex made up of Tim Ward, Mark Farmer and Catherine Plewa. They make folk music tinged with psychedelia that when push comes to shove you could put in the folktronica box. Interstitial is their new album, the follow-up to their 2018 self-titled debut outing.  Elements of Nick Drake and Syd Barrett bound together with modern production techniques.

Julie's Haircut
In The Silence Electric

As I started writing this my girlfriend Julie was fretting about her hair. Weird huh? Well this Julie's Haircut are an Italy-based cosmic psych-rock band with an interest in the metaphysical and all that sort of palaver. This, their second album blends the religious preaching of Spiritualized (they mention the lord at one point) with the drone churn of Suicide plus all sorts of jazz-flecked experimentation. A record for altered states and higher consciousness. Long may they drone on. 
  • Genre(s):

Günter Schickert & Peter Unsicker
Mauerharfe

With help from fellow native gallerist Peter Unsicker, krautrock pioneer Günter Schickert once upon a time dreamed up 'Mauerharfe' - a cold war-born eerie and atmospheric piece. Now, around 30 years since its original conception and release, their brainchild returns along with a handful of previously unreleased content.  

Astral Social Club & Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra
Plasma Splice Trifle

Some substantial time in the making, here is the recorded team-up of Yorkshire’s finest ecstatic noise-bliss project Astral Social Club with Grumbling Fur, aka Daniel O’Sullivan and Alexander Tucker. What a potent trio. Loads of sonic material here, for good time overloads. Released by VHF, who can always be counted on for some quality wild stuff.

Boris
LφVE & EVφL

Borises aren’t all bad. Overlords of Japanese drone/doom/stoner psychedelic rock, Boris, are back with a double album. LφVE & EVφL sees the band continue to find new ways in which to cleave your mind apart. If you’re unfamiliar with Boris but like Sunn 0))), Sonic Youth et al, then you’ll love this. Also recommended for fans of Boris.

Jose Manuel presents Magic Carpet: Contemporary Music 1982-1994

Jose Manuel presents Magic Carpet: Contemporary Music 1982-1994 is a compilation of ambient and experimental tracks that were released on the German Harmonie Exotic label between 1982 and 1994. In all of these obscure tracks, the dreamlike melodies come from the same source  - or are all part of the same carpet, hence the title - but have been mixed with whatever the latest piece of kit was that year. Makes for an interesting ride.

Swedish Death Candy
Are You Nervous?

They’re called Swedish Death Candy, so obviously they’re a psych-rock band. However, this London quartet prove to be more sophisticated than your average noodlers on sophomore LP Are You Nervous?. Many of the tracks here combine the fuzzy chugs of early Tame Impala with the showmanship of Muse and compositional adventurousness of The Mars Volta.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Kuunatic
Kuurandia

Kuunatic are a Japanese three-piece, who between them seem to be able to play most instruments. They mix prog, psych, dub, b-movie horror and traditional Japanese music. Together with their three-way vocals the girls make a rather unnerving sound, backed up by the foreboding bass and drum combination. Kuurandia is their first EP. 
  • Genre(s):

Bonnacons of Doom
Bonnacons of Doom

Whoever it is that’s behind Bonnacons of Doom - members of Forest Swords, Mugstar, Youth Movies and more have all been known to contribute - they clearly know what they’re doing. The band’s debut LP claims acid house as a starting point, but really the record leans more on the fried psych/noise/Krautrock of bands like Hookworms. No surprise, then, to find out that Bonnacons of Doom was recorded at Hookworms singer MJ’s Suburban Home Studios.
  • Genre(s):

Moon Duo
Stars Are The Light

Moon Duo (I preferred them when they were a trio) go disco! One of the steadiest and most reliable bands in psych rock have discovered a new muse. As well as being influenced musically, they've also found inspiration in the liberatory qualities of the dancefloor. Produced by Mr. Sonic Boom so it's no less psychedelic than their past output.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Bands
Magneticism II - The Very Best of Captain Beefheart & his Magic Bands

Spanning 15 years of Captain Beefheart’s creativity in concert with his various Magic Bands, Magneticism II looks at the appeal of Don Van Vliet in the live arena. Released on single CD and single vinyl, this compilation captures some truly memorable live takes on some of the enigmatic legend’s best work. 
  • Genre(s):

Gong
Flying Teapot

If you looked at this album and though "this has got to be prog", you're right. I checked. Flying Teapot (named for a Bertrand Russell thought experiment because of course) is Gong's third album and the first in their classic trilogy (because of course) of albums released between 1973 and 1974. If you like your rock music gleefully cosmic and elatingly psychedelic, take a flight.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Gong
You

Classic psych-minded prog from Daevid Allen’s Gong. You was released in 1974, nicely wrapping up the group’s Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy, and it is hence one of the most essential albums in the Gong catalogue. Also essential listening for any big Acid Mothers Temple fans, as they love to cover Master Builder, which appears here. Reissued on Charly.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Majeure
Mass Flashback

Majeure, eg one half of Zombi, lays out his sweet sweet analogue synthesizers again for another solo slab of sonic adventure. Mass Flashback is full of narrative and textual action, with Zombi’s proggy scope and love for vintage horror soundtrack drama pushing the synth magic to great heights. On Holodeck.

F/i
Why Not Now?… Alan!

Why Not Now?...Alan! Is the debut album by underground space-rock band F/i. The band started out mixing the Krautrock sounds of Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Ash Ra Tempel with the industrial noise made by Throbbing Gristle and SPK. By the mid ‘80s they were incorporating more traditional (sort of!) aspects of rock music into their sound. Lo-fi, industrial, Hawkwind-style wig-outs, and the experimentalism of Einstürzende Neubauten. It was originally released in 1987.

The Cosmic Dead
Scottish Space Race

Glasgow heavyweights the Cosmic Dead return with four more slabs of supersized psychedelic jam. Their churning, monolithic sound has been recorded live at their Glasgow hideaway by long term collaborator Luigi Pasquini and features lap steel synth (what?) from Andrew Gray (Girl Sweat). Sure as always to knock your socks clean off...and isn't that image on the cover art similar geographically to Lana Del Rey's understanding of the Scottish border?

The Rough Guide to Cambodian Psychedelia

This compilation, put together by the people behind the Rough Guide travel series, focuses on new Cambodian sounds of the '60s and '70s. Synthesising the American psych-rock so popular in the era with native musics and songwriting styles, these ten tracks are a window into an exciting time for the nation's music. Now they have been dug up with the help of Dengue Fever and The Cambodian Space Project. Given that the Khmer Rouge attempted to destroy all records in the country during their despotic rule, it’s amazing that we have this album at all.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

BaBa ZuLa
Derin Derin

A swirling cauldron of krautrock, dub and psychedelia, Derin Derin is the successor to BaBa ZuLa’s acclaimed retrospective XX. The Istanbul-based collective, led by founder Osman Murat Ertel, has always made politically switched-on music influenced by the state of the world, and Derin Derin is no different. 

One Eleven Heavy
Desire Path

One Eleven Heavy are a country-rock band comprised of Hans Chew along with people who have played with Wooden Wand and Royal Trux. They operate in that slack groove occupied by The Allman Brothers and early-70s Rolling Stones. The band take their name from a short story about a plane crash. This seems to have jinxed them. In the two years spent writing and recording their second album, Desire Path, the band have been through a number of near-death experiences. Adds an edge to the music, I guess.

Mzylkypop
Kiedy Wilki Zawyja​? ​/ ​When Will The Wolves Howl?

Really intriguing record from Mzylkypop here. Kiedy Wilki Zawyja​? ​/ ​When Will The Wolves Howl? is a fabulously varied set yoked together by the same spirit of invention and DIY nature that has driven everyone from Public Image Ltd. to Ghost Box Records. Goblin-style library funk, folksy reveries ala Richard Dawson, Belle And Sebastian ballads and obtuse industrialism are just a few of the styles to be found across this hugely impressive album.

Heroin In Tahiti
Casilina Tapes 2010 | 2017

Hailing from Rome, cult duo Heroin in Tahiti fuse analogue synths, garage-y guitars and skittering drum machines to gloriously lo-fi effect. This collection of previously unreleased tracks covers material recorded in their studio from a 7-year period. Their unique psychedelic vision touches on everything from beat poetry, house music and Ennio Morricone soundtracks.

Documenta
Lady With The Ring

Documenta had been working on the third instalment of their Drone Pop trilogy, but a chance flurry of inspiration caused them to veer off-course and come up with this five-track EP. Lady With The Ring is inspired by a legend of an Irish woman who had to be buried twice after being raised from the dead. If you want a more in-depth account of the legend of Margorie McCall then you’ll have to listen to the record - Spiritualized/Spacemen 3 bassist Will Carruthers gives a detailed synopsis on the eponymous title track. The rest of Lady With The Ring is a mix of folk-rock, post-rock, free-jazz and drone styles. Think Sparklehorse, Mogwai and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

Taras Bulba
One

Fred Laird and Jon Blacow used to be in space-rock band Earthling Society, so while the abstract psychedelia of their new project Taras Bulba is a bit of a change of pace it’s actually not so far removed from what they’ve done in the past. The group’s debut LP One oscillates between freeform Lynchian abstraction and some more Can-esque, groove-based stuff. Pretty nifty record this.

Crypt Witch
Bad Trip Exorcism

Deep Distance is a label usually known for its komische and krautrock as well as being an imprint of Polytechnic Youth. This release of Bad Trip Exorcism by Crypt Witch may come as a surprise. Stoner/Doom rock with the expansive nature of Spacemen 3 and the heavy riffing of Black Sabbath. This vinyl version follows the CD version which sold out very quickly. 

Stonefield
BENT

Stonefield are an Australian psych rock band made up of four sisters: Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly Findaly. Bent is their fourth album. It may not surprise you to learn when read ‘Australian’ and ‘psych rock’ that the album was produced by Joe Walker and Stu McKenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

Kendra Amalie
Intuition

Having amassed a ton of experience working with Moss Folk, Names Divine and a number of other collaborations, Intuition is the debut album for Kendra Amalie on the Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label. Tracks like its lead single ‘Breathe Underwater’ show Amalie to be in her element - making spacey, free-form compositions while sticking loosely to a guitar-based singer-songwriter style.

The Teardrop Explodes
Kilimanjaro

Julian Cope is now known as one of English alternative music’s most distinctive auteurs, but his story began with the Liverpudlian band The Teardrop Explodes. This is a heavyweight vinyl re-issue of their 1980 debut album Kilimanjaro, which housed many of their best-known songs, including UK Top Ten hit ‘Reward’. 

Dylan Moon
Only The Blues

Dylan Moon is the perfect name for someone who makes music like this. Only The Blues, the Californian artist’s debut LP, is a set of dreamy bedroom guitar pieces. The manner in which Moon’s quiet voice dips in and out of the textures here is pitched somewhere between Arthur Russell, Nick Drake and R.E.M. - which is to say that Only The Blues is a lovely listen.

Here Lies Man
No Ground To Walk Upon

Third album from what if Black Sabbath but afrobeat band Here Lies Man. Of they've got the riffs alright, riffs aplenty. It's the rhythms that are so strikingly different. You probably won't hear Bill Ward bashing out the beats on No Ground To Walk Upon. In sum they're a party band who've managed to sneak in a bit of the the ol' \m/. Very tasty. 

Frank Zappa
Orchestral Favorites (40th Anniversary)

Appearing during a period of upheaval between Frank Zappa and his label Warner, Orchestral Favourites was an album of instrumentals recorded with the 37-piece Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra and released without his permission in 1979. Now, the often-overlooked record gets a deluxe overhaul and expansion for its 40th anniversary worthy of Zappa’s original vision.

Föllakzoid
I

Chilean band Föllakzoid deliver their fourth studio album a very long four years after their last one. I (confusingly following 2015’s III) differs from their previous albums in that it was constructed painstakingly from dozens of musical stems, rather than done in single live takes with the band in the studio.

Beautiful Freaks - Waving Our Flag High, Wave On, Wave On: Music From The Original Counter Culture

Though it might evoke images of crusties and hippies, Beautiful Freaks is an excellently compiled collection providing a snapshot into the first proper counter-cultural wave in mainstream society. This double-LP set from Tad Records includes cuts from the Grateful Dead, Brigitte Fontaine, Hawkwind and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

Spacemen 3
Live In Europe 1989

Live in Europe 1989 does exactly what it says on the tin and captures soon-to-disband space rock legends Spacemen 3 over four nights on their final European tour and showcases a short lived four piece line up of the band. Less ragged than their earlier Performance live document, there's still plenty of off the cuff drug-fuelled experimentation and more lyrical references to the lord than you'll ever need.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Silence
Metaphysical Feedback

Enjoy the Silence. Mind you, a shared interest in all things quiet is really where the similarities between Depeche Mode and this Tokyo-based quartet end. The ambitious psychedelia, Krautrock and free music of the Silence's fourth LP 'Metaphysical Feedback' pretty much couldn’t be further from the slick grooves of Fletcher, Gahan et al. Can and Neu! are the obvious touchstones here.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spaceship
Outcrops

Yorkshire-born sound artist Mark Williamson brings his Spaceship project to vinyl for the first time on Outcrops. Inspired by sandstone rock formations visible outside the town of Todmorden, this record is full of gorgeous, Boards of Canada-esque analogue synths and pulsating, gentle sheets of My Bloody Valentine-style noise.

The Reverb Conspiracy - Volume 6

Volume Six of the reliably fuzzy Reverb Conspiracy compilation series, showcasing all the finest psych-etc. that the Fuzz Club label sees fit to print. Some of their own bands are here, but also plenty of internationally-sourced groups that you may or may not know. Nice Biscuit, Steeple Remove, Julia Robert... loads of noisy guitar goodies to get stuck into.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Monster Rally
Adventures on the Floating Island

If you've heard a Monster Rally album before the you'll know that their music is a form of escapism that takes you far away from the ring roads and office blocks into a kind of Hawaiian paradise. Ted Feighan takes samples and loops from old exotica albums and distills them into a vaguely hip-hop narrative which sounds something like a lazy day at the beach with J. Dilla. Lovely stuff as always.

The Teardrop Explodes
Wilder

The glittering but short-lived career of The Teardrop Explodes came to an end with 1981’s Wilder, only the second album completed by Julian Cope and co. before they disintegrated. More complex and moodier than its predecessor, reliant on loops and synths rather than guitars, it now gets a heavyweight vinyl re-issue. 

Vuelveteloca
Sonora Remixes

Chilean psych band Vuelveteloca celebrate over a decade of their blend of motorik grooves and Black Sabbath riffs with 'Sonora Remixes'. They've asked some of the biggest names in psych rock to contribute including the KVB, the Men, and A Place To Bury Strangers. The results are dubby, droney and of course, noisy.

Alexander Tucker
Guild Of The Asbestos Weaver

Alexander Tucker  - once bearded but last time I looked no beard at all  - has for many years made some thrilling music both solo and as one half of Grumbling Fur. This latest work sees him exploring the depths of cosmic psychedelia and hallucinogenic electronics. Music you'd think you'd need a beard for but Tucker is always a musician ready for a surprise.

Singapore Sling
Killer Classics

The long and fruitful Fuzz Club Records-Singapore Sling alliance bears more fruit with the latter’s fifth LP for the label. As you can probably tell from it's semi-NSFW artwork, Killer Classics is a typically in-your-face set of proto-punk from Henrik Björnsson’s project. All your favourite leather bands - The Stooges, Suicide, Jesus & Mary Chain etc - have a heavy influence on this record.

Monarch
Beyond The Blue Sky

Monarch are one of the latest bands to rise up from the very productive San Diego heavy psych, prog and free rock scene. Their take on psych rock is a little different as they blend the dueling guitar solos of the Allman Brothers with synths and saxophone. This album, Beyond The Blue Sky is the follow-up to their 2016 debut, Two Isles. 
  • Genre(s):

Prana Crafter & Tarotplane
Symbiose

A split album featuring a side-long composition each from Prana Crafter and Tarotplane, Symbiose is an apt title. Respectively crafting ‘Jagged Mountain Melts At Dawn’ on side A and ‘We Move Slowly Through The Past’ on the flip, the two pieces connect American underground electronica with old-fashioned European independent music. 
  • Genre(s):

Bushman's Revenge
Et Hån Mot Overklassen

Making their debut on Hubro, Et Hån Mot Overklassen - translating as ‘A Mockey of the Upper Class’ - sees Norwegian outfit Bushman’s Revenge significantly alter their normal modus operandi. Out go the heavy gothic histrionics of old, to be replaced by a much more subtle, acoustically based sound. 

Durul Gence
Black Cat

A 7” vinyl single release of previously unheard demo recordings from Turkish percussionist Durul Gence. ‘Black Cat’ takes up the first side, with ‘Boo Song’ providing the B-side, with both sourced from the man’s own archives. The release follows the untimely demise of Gence’s band, Asia Minor Mission.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Infest The Rats' Nest

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are probably the most easily distracted band in the world. After having fun with microtones and boogie woogie on 'Infest The Rats' Nest' they've turned to the darkside for a bit of good old fashioned thrash metal. Fair play to them, they've done a decent job of evoking the golden years of the likes of Metallica and Slayer. I wait with baited breath for their first opera.

kandodo 3
k3

How much do kan a kando do if a kando kandodo? Well, 3 apparently. On k3, kandodo 3 have created four sides of vinyl worth of well practiced exploratory psych-rock. This is music for fans of the Heads, maybe unsurprisingly as that band's Simon Price leads the kandodo 3. It's vibes all the way... way... way... down. On Rooster Rock.

The Book Of AM
Part V: Night

The Book Of AM is a project begun in 1977 with esoteric philosophical intentions, and featuring words and sounds from around the world and across hundreds of years. Part V, representing Night, for some reason was not completed and never appeared with the rest of the collection, but this crack team, using overdubs and additional composition as well as mixing and mastering techniques, now present the completed final part! LP on Wah Wah.

Alex Puddu
The Mark of the Devil

This is the third and last of the Trilogy cult composer Alex Puddu concocted with Italian vocalist Edda Dell'orso. This is a dark and lustful (ooph!) walk through prog rock, psych blues and what is described as dope-groove.. This showcases Puddu at his most experimental and is a must for fans of '60s/'70s soundtracks.

The Babe Rainbow
Today

Sold out

Wand
Plum

The first album in two years from West Coast psych outfit Wand and for this they've added two new members which has brought about a much more democratic songwriting process than before. The album was borne out of improvisational sessions which yielded dense and wildly chromatic music, pushing the envelope of their previous psych fuzz sound.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Kikagaku Moyo
Forest Of Lost Children

Kikagaku Moyo improvise like they're falling through a black hole and can jam forever, and so Forest of Lost Children is just a snippet of their work together, a record that explores their meandering psych and folk workouts and picks out the best bits. This record buoys an Eastern influence and favours a frenetic clash of sounds over particular arrangements. They still sound tight, though.

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.

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.
