Various
Sad About The Times

Fed up with The Times newspaper? Hang on, no. I mean: Fed up with the times (in which we currently live)? Up for some songs about it? Here’s a tidy poultice of wistful, uplifting, cathartic and otherwise haunted tunes from the likes of Norma Tanega, David Chalmers and Jim Spencer. Sweet ’n’ sober folk rock, soft rock, psychedelia and so forth.

Elephant9 with Reine Fiske
Psychedelic Backfire II

Norwegian post-jazz supergroup 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 II features the guest presence of Reine Fiske, whose rhythm guitar fits right in with the rich and remarkable Elephant9 sound. Four lengthy live cuts.

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.

Prana Crafter
Bodhi Cheetah's Choice

Bodhi Cheetah’s Choice by Prana Crafter is an album that intends to evoke the feeling of a woodland walk via the medium of acid folk. William Sol, the man behind the music, often tramps through the woods in his native Washington State. Fans of Six Organs of Admittance, Popol Vuh, late ‘60s John Fahey and Grateful Dead’s early ‘70s bootlegs will happily lose themselves in this.

Genesis
A Trick Of The Tail

1976: Goodbye Peter Gabriel, step forward Mr. Phil Collins! A Trick Of The Tail was the album where Phil Collins left his drum stool and stepped up to the mic, or just got a mic shoved in front of his mouth while he sat at the drums. He replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals anyway as Gabriel left to embark on a solo career. A more song-orientated, less theatrical version of Genesis was born.

Diagram
Transmission Response

Diagram is the solo recording moniker of Icelandic musician Hákon Aðalsteinsson, who normally fronts neo-psych outfit The Third Sound and plays guitar in The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Transmission Response, his first album by himself, is 12 tracks of synth-inflected post-punk and dream-pop.

Genesis
Foxtrot

The fourth album in the Genesis cannon was 1972’s Foxtrot. According to critics at the time, this is the one where their blend of prog, creativity and musical nous were combined perfectly. Foxtrot was notable for its ambitious closing track, Supper’s Ready, a complex construction which clocked in at 27 minutes. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Causa Sui
Live At Freak Valley

Don’t you think we have a shortage of serious psychedelic jamming bands nowadays? Because that’s what Causa Sui thought, and they’re pretty darn serious about alleviating our troubles. This professionally mastered live album, with 9 tracks on 2 discs (even on CD!) will deliver great bang for your buck.

Yawning Man
Macedonian Lines

Yawning Man are band rooted in desert rock and stoner rock. They have been together since 1986 but only released their first album in 2005. Since then, they have released a glut of EPs and two further albums. 2018’s The Revolt Against Tired Noises saw a progression in their sound which continues on their latest long-player Macedonian Lines.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Elder
The Gold & Silver Sessions

One of the most eyebrow-raising musical evolutions in recent times, it’s incredible to think that the expansive, krautrock wig-outs of The Gold & Silver Sessions are the product of Elder, the same band that released the straightforwardly stoner-rock Reflections of a Floating World just two years back. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Om
Live

It's the band which are only a bass player and a drummer! Live is a live recording of Om during their tour in 2013. Expect all the raw, grungy, doom metal, prog swirling mess you normally get with Om but with maybe a little bit more of a raw, grungy, doom metal, prog swirling, LIVE mess sound. Vinyl is coloured gold with a plain, wraparound sleeve.

Doug Tuttle
Dream Road

Doug Tuttle was one half of the duo MMoss with his then girlfriend, Rachel Neveu. When their relationship, and band, broke up, he set off for Massachusetts where he’s been making solo albums ever since. Dream Road, his fourth album, is another collection of songs that recall classic ‘60s & ‘70s American pop and rock with more than a touch of country and psych.

Rob Burger
The Grid

An understudy and collaborator with jazz and avant-garde legends going as far back as Max Roach and Laurie Anderson, and then immersing himself in session and soundtrack work, Rob Burger is one of the most consistently undervalued figures in music over the last quarter of a century. The Grid is his latest solo album. 

The Galileo 7
There Is Only Now

Psychedelically tinged garage-rock for fans of King Gizzard and Thee Oh Sees, There Is Only Now is the sixth studio album from psych-beat outfit The Galileo 7. Shamelessly retro it may be, but there’s always been total joy and conviction in the group’s output to date, and this should be no different. 

Air
Air

A jazz/soul/prog-rock classic from 1971, Air’s self-titled album is something of a rarity. Thankfully, Be With Records are highly skilled at their reissues, and Air is no exception. They’ve recreated the exact original release, including beautiful artwork - but with remastered tracks. All on 180 gram vinyl. Not to be confused with French electro duo Air!

Hawkeyes
Last Light Of Future Failure

The second full-length album from Hawkeyes arrives with fire in its belly. Last Light Of Future Failure strays from the path of fully-blasted doom in order to add in further heavy and psychedelic aspects, so that this album’s sound, achieved with a full four guitarists, is more varied and more richly textured than before. On Cardinal Fuzz.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

White Manna
Ape On Sunday

When the fuzz was come who will you stand with? Cardinal Fuzz or Fuzz Club? White Manna have sided with the former.. for now. Ape On Sunday sees the band making almost unbearably brooding kosmische, the sort of music that would have me constantly looking over my shoulder on a nighttime walk through the park. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spacemen 3
Recurring

Recurring was the final album by Spacemen 3, originally released in 1991. The duo of Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom and Jason Pierce had pretty much stopped collaborating with each other before the album was recorded. This meant half the album was recorded by Kember and half by Pierce. The only track they both played on was the cover of Mudhoney’s When Tomorrow Hits. Kember went carried on making music under the Sonic Boom moniker whilst Pierce left to form Spiritualized. Features the classic, Big City.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Richard Pinhas
L'Ethique

Another fine Richard Pinhas reissue! This one, 1982’s L’Ethique, is Richard’s fifth album since concluding Heldon, and the last one he made before a long, decade-plus break from music. A notable album then.  L’Ethique is a spacey, jazzy, rocky experience, with lots of rad instrumental shapes thrown. Plenty of fine synthy action too. Reissued by Bureau B.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Tengger
Spiritual 2

Pan-Asian travelling family band Tengger return with Spiritual 2. This time, the visual and musical focus seems to be the Japanese mountain of Ishizuchi, and that one is nothing if not steeped in spirituality. Joyous new age drones, krauty beats and wordless female vocals accompanied by harmonium and toy instruments.

Some Became Hollow Tubes
Keep It In The Ground

Some Became Hollow Tubes is a collaboration between Eric Quach of Thisquietarmy and Aidan Girt of the legendary Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The LP contains six improvised drone pieces, heavy on the pedals and the loops,  that follow the quiet/loud dynamic as drums appear and subside. Surely one for Normanites to get excited about!
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Les Big Byrd
Stockholm Death Star

Following support slots with Goat and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Les Big Byrd commit their Scandinavian space rock to tape with Stockholm Death Star. Fuzzy and full of modern-psych overtones it’s also packed with a distinctly Swedish knack for pop hooks. Out on vinyl 12” from ‘a’ Recordings.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Black Bombaim
Zone Of Resident Bodies

Portugese space/psych rockers Black Bombaim have teamed up with three electronic composers to create their new album Zone Of Resident Bodies. Composers Jonathan Saldanha, Luís Fernandes, Pedro Augusto worked with the band in different locations from an old auditorium, a cavernous space in a post office building and a reverberation room at an engineering university. This removed the band’s reliance on the safety of a studio, with interesting results. On Cardinal Fuzz.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dean McPhee
Four Stones

Return for the third (full-length) time to the world of Dean McPhee, and sit in the centre of his elegant swirling electric guitar pieces. Four Stones combines tracks from rare editions of Folklore Tapes cassettes with two excellent new pieces, adding up to a good-sized portion of McPhee in all his melodically instrumental glory. Vinyl release from Hood Faire.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Pretty Things
S. F. Sorrow

The Pretty Things were innovators in the ‘60s and ‘70s and in 1968 they unleashed their classic and essential rock opera and psychedelic masterpiece, S.F. Sorrow. This was well in advance of The Who having such fanciful ideas with Tommy. Think of it as standing shoulder-to-shoulder with The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper or Pink Floyd’s Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

Michael Rother
Sterntaler

Grönland are currently in the middle of a Michael Rother reissue programme. 1978’s Sterntaler, the second solo LP released by the Neu!/Harmonia hombre, is one of those that has made the cut. As you might expect this is classique Motorik Krautrock, full of rumbling basslines and chirruping synthesisers.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Michael Rother
Flammende Herzen

There was great anticipation around the release of Flammende Herzen when it first emerged in 1977. People were eager to see what Michael Rother would get up to after Neu! had disbanded, and the inclusion of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit also added to the intrigue. The resulting record didn’t disappoint, hitting big with a combination of proggy composition, Krautrock invention and Motorik rhythm.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Michael Rother
Fernwärme

Michael Rother’s 1982 LP Fernwärme stands out in the Neu!/Harmonia fellow’s catalogue for a couple of reasons - it was the first album Rother recorded without the aid of Conny Plank, and also saw Rother basing his compositions around the drumming of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit for the first time in several years. Despite having these new elements in play, the sound of Fernwärme doesn’t differ too much from Rother’s contemporaneous output. Think Jean-Michel Jarre with a Motorik beat.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Michael Rother
Katzenmusik

Katzenmusik, the third solo LP from Michael Rother, is proggy Krautrock par excellence. I mean, you’d expect nothing less from someone who was a founding member of both Neu! and Harmonia, would you? There are some nice Americana/country influences mixed in here too. Katzenmusik is also notable for being the last record Rother made with long-time collaborator Conny Plank as producer.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Genesis
Duke

Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s. All signs of their prog experimentation were gone and they started to write hits. Contains the No.8 hit, Turn It On Again. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Carlton Melton
Hidden Lights

San Franciscan psychedelic trippy guys Carlton Melton unleash the first fruits of their new jams with this 25 minute three track EP. This is the first offering since Out To Sea and should showcase further cosmic journeys this time augmented by Phil Manley (Fucking Champs etc) in the production chair. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Sand Pebbles
Ghost Transmissions

The Sand Pebbles are a rock band from Melbourne whose sound is at the flowery end of the the psych rock scale, and if that sounds wrong to you, then think again. Their classic album, Ghost Transmissions, is being pressed on vinyl for the first time. It adds an updated freshness to the sound of 1967. Heavyweight vinyl with download featuring the album plus 9 bonus tracks on Cardinal Fuzz, limited to 350 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

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.

Bremen
Enter Silence

Bremen return with arguably their most arresting LP to date. After three sprawling albums - one for Skrammel, two for Blackest Ever Black - the Uppsala group’s new record Enter Silence is a relatively concise affair by comparison. However, this leaner approach suits the band - these ten post-rock numbers bring together instrumental rock, Krautrock, electronica and psych in a manner reminiscent of Desertshore and Acid Mothers Temple.

Anatolian Weapons feat. Seirios Savvaidis
To The Mother Of Gods

Anatolian Weapons - the project of Athens-based artist Aggelos Baltas (Dream Weapons, Fantastikoi Hxoi) - has teamed up with the Greek folk composer Seirios Savvaidis for new LP To The Mother Of The Gods. The Anatolian Weapons style leans on the beatific psych and Krautrock of groups like The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Can, and when combined with Savvaidis ear for native Greek styles the results are potent. To The Mother Of The Gods is out via Beats In Space.

JJ Whitefield
Brother All Alone

Having been a part of a bewildering number of projects over the last twenty years, German underground musician and bandleader JJ Whitefield strikes out under his own name for this first time with solo album Brother All Alone. Recorded between Germany and Kenya, this new collection immerses you in Whitefield’s passions - namely, weird funk, neo-jazz and krautrock. 

The Quiet Temple
The Last Opium Den (On Earth)

Lead single from The Quiet Temple’s forthcoming debut album. Duke Garwood and Soulsavers’ Richard Machin’s merry band of players, made up of an ever-changing collection of musicians like Julian Cope, Spiritualized and Stereolab, prioritise improvisation to synthesise the underground sleaze of the world’s last opium den.

Kutiman
Sakla Beni (featuring Melike Sahin)

Kutiman’s new single ‘Sakla Beni’ is a collaboration with Turkish singer Melike Şahin. This track is a righteous bit of psychedelic neo-soul, one that mixes together a thick fuzz-funk bassline, slow stomp of a groove and Anatolian rock production. The end result is not unlike those Khruangbin fellows everyone gets so excited about. The ‘Sakla Beni’ 7” comes backed with the ‘karaoke’ version.

Gong
Rejoice! I'm Dead!

28 albums. 28 albums! Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 28th album from that there prog rock institution Gong. The album was first released in 2016, and was their first after the passing of co-founder Daevid Allen. The band, formed of new and old members, did justice to their friend's legacy with an album as assuredly Gong as the 27 others.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Servants Of The Sun

Following the break-up of The Black Crowes, singer Chris Robinson, formed blues rock band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. The band have now clocked up 6 albums in 8 years and are on track to be way more prolific than the band he is best known for. Servants of the Sun is their latest long player. On Megaforce.

Goat
World Music (Picture Disc)

The debut record by insane Swedish rockers Goat, highly recommended for everybody who loves squealing guitars, screaming ladies, and catchy afrobeat grooves. Combining psychedelic rock with lots of ethnic rhythms, World Music scored highly in many of 2012’s end-of-the-year lists. Great volumes of tribal distortion on this one.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

White Hills / GNOD
Aquarian Downer

Cast your mind back to when both these storied acts were a somewhat different proposition. Aquarian Downer is from 2008, when White Hills and GNOD collaborated together for this tour-specific limited CDr, and it is an extremely deep psychedelic listen, thick with intense drones and gnarly guitars. Aquarian Downer: it's really one for the heads. 2018 reissue.

Mamuthones / Evil Blizzard
Collisions Vol.4

The fourth LP in Rocket Recordings’ Collisions series of split releases finds Italy’s occult psych monsters Mamuthones going head to head with demented UK sprawlers Evil Blizzard. The former incorporate fresh elements of VU-style drone rock and Byrne/Eno rhythmic clatter on four new tracks while the latter offer up the thunderous circular intensity of "Sacrifice", calling on kindred spirits Teeth Of The Sea for some suitably unhinged remix action.

The Untied Knot
Falling Off the Evolutionary Ladder

The Untied Knot blend a number of influences and sounds to make their latest album, Falling Off The Evolutionary Ladder. The tracks are put together by picking out the tastiest bits of improvisations - the same process used by Can and Miles Davis - and musical nods to both artists are apparent. The duo of Nigel Bryant and Matt Donovan have played with the likes of This Heat’s Charles Hayward, Gong’s Daevid Allen and Henry Cow’s Chris Cutler, consolidating their underground experimental chops.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Fu Manchu
Gigantoid

Stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu are approaching their quarter-century anniversary, but they've still got some new riffs in them. 'Gigantoid' is their latest full-length, continuing their fuzzy, pummelling legacy of neanderthal repetitive desert-rock riffing, scorched-earth guitar solos and monotone drawled vocals.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Motorpsycho
Roadwork Vol. 2

The second part of Motorpsycho’s live compilation series, Roadwork Vol. 2, captures the band live at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival in 1995. An odd place for them to play, perhaps. However, they accepted the invitation of fellow Norwegians, The Source, a free Jazz combo who clearly felt that Motorpsycho’s psych/prog explorations would suit some far out augmentation. 180g blue coloured vinyl LP or CD on Rune Gramafon. Limited to 500 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

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. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Helicon
Zero Fucks

The beautifully titled Zero Fucks EP is the first new material from Helicon in just over a year, following their debut album. The songs came out of the desire for the Glasgow cosmic noise-fuzzers to add more animated material to their live set and once they were tested at Fuzz Club 2018 in Eindhoven they knew they had to get them on tape tout suite to keep the vibe going. Sounds exciting, yeah? 10" EP on Fuzz Club, limited to 300 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Wovoka Gentle
Start Clanging Cymbals

Wovoko Gentle are an odd proposition, meshing rustic twang with wildly manipulating electronics, both clashed against one another with a sly and comical type of political critique. It’s an odd sound to get your head around, fusing approached which on paper seem entirely incompatible. ‘Start Clanging Cymbals’ comes to us via the Nude label.

Kungens Män
Chef

Stockholm based band Kungens Män have stepped things up a notch. Their previous album, Fuzz på svenska, was a more gentle, more jazzy affair. Chef (meaning 'boss' in Swedish) meanwhile is loud, fuzzy and droning. Very dense and very loud psychedelic jams presented as four lengthy tracks. On Riot Season.

Goblin
Tenebrae

The cinephiles at Waxwork hop on the Goblin reissue train. This soundtrack to Dario Argento’s 1982 Giallo classic Tenebrae was composed by three core members of the group (Claudio Simonetti, Fabio Pignatelli, and Massimo Morante). It’s a fun mix of ghoulish Italo disco, campy horror atmospherics ala John Carpenter and tense post-punk-funk.

HOO
Centipede Wisdom

HOO (standing for Holton’s Opulent Oog) is an intriguing collaboration between Nick Holton, songwriter with Black Hearted Brother, and former Slowdive member Ian McCutcheon. Their first album Centipede Wisdom offers droning guitars and swirling synth textures framed in fluid, freeform structures. 

You Said Strange
Fuzz Club Session

Psych/shoegaze band, You Said Strange, had tunneled around the French underground before coming up to the surface, before embarking on a tour with The Dandy Warhols, and subsequently having their debut album, Salvation Prayer, produced by Warhols multi-instrumentalist, Peter Holmstrom. Now they’ve added their name to an increasingly impressive roster of artists recording Fuzz Club Sessions, recording at Lovebuzz studios in London.

Expo '70
Cleverly Mystique

Consistently warped, spacial and well suited to some retro Doctor Who episode is Expo 70's Krautrock offering - Cleverly Mystique. featuring otherworldly melody and a melancholic sense of dread throughout, this off-kilter and ambitious collection is revitalised onto vinyl 5 years after its initial release.

FARIDA
Shoot / Last Waltz

FARIDA is the solo project of Jenny Faridas who is releasing their first 12", 'Last Waltz/Shoot'. Their past releases have combined spoken word vocals and droning instrumentation to create a sound that's both dark and intense. This new single looks to have upgraded this sound to include 'jagged guitars' and 'hypnotic' drums; what a treat. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
And Now For The Whatchamacallit

As you can possibly imagine, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are from Australia and play exuberant psychedelic rock. They've been wowing audiences everywhere for the past year or so and now it's time for the debut album proper extravaganza. Expect manic psych thrills and raucous off kilter rock explosions.

Various
Lullabies For Catatonics: A Journey Through The British Avant-Pop/Art Rock Scene 1967-74

Presented over three CDs in a special ‘clamshell’ box set, the Grapefruit imprint’s latest exploration of the various off-shoots of British psychedelia turns to the avant-garde pop / art-rock scene of 1967 to 1974. Lullabies For Catatonics spans everything from early Bowie to the so-called Canterbury Scene, and includes three previously unreleased tracks. 

Makoto Kawashima
Homo Sacer

Makoto Kawashima’s 2015 LP Homo Sacer gets its first ever vinyl pressing courtesy of Black Editions. This record was the final catalogue entry for acclaimed Japanese rock/experimental label P.S.F., and it proves to be a fitting swan song for Hideo Ikeezumi’s endeavour. The two pieces on Homo Sacer are free saxophone improvisations by turns piercing, pretty and pained.

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.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Hallelujah Mystic Garden Part Two

Anyone else singing Hallelujah Mystic Garden to the tune of ‘Solidarity Forever’? Just me? Scabs the lot of you. Anyway, the bugged-out psychedelia of Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. is exactly the sort of decadence that flies in the face of the international socialist project. Following on from 2018’s Hallelujah Mystic Garden Part One, Part Two fronts up two proggy disco numbers, one of which is a new rendering of AMT fan-fave ‘Pink Lady Lemonade’. The Acid Mothers united will never be defeated.

Tim Maia
Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia

Tim Maia has a lot of cultural caché in his native Brazil, but his profile in the English-speaking world could do with a little boost: enter Luaka Bop. The David Byrne-affiliated label have compiled 15 highlights from Maia’s extremely soulful career. Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia is available on CD or double LP.

Bill Baird
Arthur King Presents Bill Baird: Owl

Arthur King is not a person but an L.A.-based music and art collective. They have been curating a series of experimental albums by a bunch of cool artists. Their latest offering is by Austin, Texas musician Bill Baird. The album is called Owl. Baird dabbles in various  experimental psychedelic versions of folk and pop. Here he stretches his psychedelic reach further and delves into the world of krautrock. It’s likely to leave you grinning like an idiot. On Dangerbird.

Skinny Pelembe
Dreaming Is Dead Now

Skinny Pelembe’s debut album, Dreaming Is Dead, mixes dub, hip-hop, sun-drenched folk and blissed-out soul. Giles Peterson has championed the Johannesburg-born, Doncaster-raised artist. James Lavelle and Ghostpoet have also been singing his praises. The album was produced by Malcolm Catto of Heliocentrics. If you like Massive Attack, this is probably for you. LP and CD on Brownswood Recording.

Can
Monster Movie

The debut album by The Can (as they were called at the time) still doesn’t seem like it should have come from 1969. 69 BC or 2169 AD maybe? The repetition-monster Yoo Doo Right is the most famous and singular track here. But for me the angular Father Cannot Yell and the manic Outside Your Door are the peaks of the Malcolm Mooney era.

Wand
Laughing Matter

L.A.’s psychedelic rock sons, Wand, return with their 5th album, Laughing Matter. Despite the Ty Segall connections (Evan Burrows and Corey Hanson played in Segall’s backing band The Muggers), They seem to be moving away from a fuzzed-out rock sound to more contemplative Radiohead-ish territory. Plenty of experimentation going on, so all is good.

Weird Omen
Surrealistic Feast

Weird Omen are a trashy garage/rock ‘n’ roll band from France. Whilst they don’t like to be compared to other bands, and generally can’t be compared, mentioning bands such as Morphine, New York no wavers James Chance and The Contortions, The Kinks and The Cramps may give you a useful insight into what you’re about to hear. Surrealistic Feast is their third album. LP and CD on Dirty Water.

Tajak
Amsterdam 211

The trio Tajak spent time in Amsterdam 211 to construct this here debut full-length album. Each tracks creates a kind of space / headspace of its own for the listener to dwell inside, most of them with a slightly musty, introverted feel. Tajak have a krautrock feel for texture and rhythm, and play very well with tension and release. Out on Dirty Filthy Records.

The deep library that is Klaus Schulze’s catalogue grows a little larger with this release, which answers the question that many Shulze-heads have asked over the years: did he create an original soundtrack to the 1982 film Next Of Kin? In fact he did, though the score was never used or heard… Until now! This thought-lost music has been brought back, remastered, and presented to us at last. Via The Roundtable.

Blacklab
Under The Strawberry Moon

Winners of my favourite album art for the year, please say hello to Blacklab, an Osaka local band who make barely decipherable evil. With a few of the layers in their musical trifle consisting of fuzzy texture, they top everything off with a big helping of doom. The lo-fi production and noisy carelessness that sums up Under the Strawberry Moon is indicative of their unflinching, uncompromising attitude. Cool.

Papir
VI

On 'VI' -- sooo psych guys, thumbs up! -- the trio of Copenhageners calling themselves Papir continue to ply us with their blend of blissed-out psychedelic rock mixed with Kraut stylings. Epic, hypnotic, and drenched in reverb. Of course. A grand total of 4 songs on this record, but who's counting? Available in 180-gram transparent vinyl LP and CD versions, on Stickman records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Six Organs of Admittance
Burning The Threshold

The inside of Ben Chasney’s head must be like a forest. His music sounds like a brave guitar player treading through a maze of brown branches and red leaves, never breaking his pace. The result is, invariably, an album full of hypnotizing songs, and Six Organs of Admittance’ latest is no exception. Burning the Threshold features guest musicians on vocals, drums and keys, but the sound is unmistakable: uncompromising, almost tribal, acoustic music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dommengang
No Keys

Fronted by guitarist Dan ‘Sig’ Wilson, something of a hired gun for indie groups of the Pacific Northwest for years, Dommengang re-assemble for a third album. Choosing to record with veteran indie producer Tim Green, the trio tried to capture the essence of their excellent live shows on No Keys, channelling the psychedelic aspects of their garage-rock into something darker and even more intense. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Pistol Disco
Organs & Drums / Beat Of The Tune

Track one from this 7-inch, Organs & Drums, doesn't actually contain too many organs and drums. Track two, Beat of the Tune, does. It confused me when I first listened to it. I digress. This wonderful 7" from Germany-based Alexander Palmestål and Sweden-based Mikael Enqvist is different from the type of music they usually produce, but is still worthy of any German and/or Swedish music collection*. Released on Hoga Nord.      *not exclusive to German and/or Swedish music collections. 

JuJu
JuJu

Juju, the recording moniker of Sicilian artist Gioele Valenti, formerly of Lay Llamas and Herself, sees his self-titled album re-issued by Fuzz Club. A politically pointed mixture of modern psychedelia and African influences, the album touches on the tragedies that unfold every day in the mediterranean.

Pelt
Pearls From The River

Oh yes oh yes, a serious classic here from Pelt, captured here in their killer line-up of Mike Gangloff, Patrick Best and Jack Rose in 2003. Acousti folk-drone raga bliss, rustled up in one deep session, with tamboura, esraj and baritone banjo joining Rose’s sublime guitar. Pearls From The River is here reissued to vinyl for the very first time. On VHF.

Plastic Crimewave Syndicate
Massacre Of The Celestials

Plastic Crimewave Syndicate present their fourth album of gnarly fun, the grandly-titled Massacre Of The Celestials. The hefty backbone of this album is psych-rock, with that drawling vocal, those propulsive rhythms and that sweet fuzz, but this is also a group happy to let a single weird sound play alone for more than a minute and let their organ squeal all over the shop. Good stuff! On Cardinal Fuzz.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Hibushibire
Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!

Everyone knows that the best, most gnarliest psychedelic-rock comes from Japan: accept no imitations. So the arrival of Osaka trio Hibushibire’s second album Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out! is a cause for celebration, especially with Makoto Kawabata himself manning the production desk! Vivid, guitar-driven freakouts, with three tracks on side one and one big monster on side two.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Terry Riley
A Rainbow In Curved Air

Terry Riley is the master of tape. Turning 8-second loops into musical instrumentation you can see how he is an inspiration for composers such as Phillip Glass  and William Basinski, you can also hear from this record The Who’s inspiration for Baba O’riley. The original, now classic 1969 release comes back once again.

The Mystery Lights
Too Much Tension!

Very scrappy and committed punk rock from The Mystery Lights. For WICK (a Daptone subsidiary), the band release their second album Too Much Tension! This is a record that moves like a cannon, barrelling through while drawing on the likes of The Kinks and Television. Best is the lead singer's powerful yelp that acts as guide to the the songs. 

Hawkwind
Space Ritual

The crowning achievement for space rockers Hawkwind, Space Ritual captures a blistering live show from 1972. Rhino bring this monstrous double LP back to vinyl again. These extended freak-out jams, complete with spoken word sections, screeching riffs and berserk electronic breakdowns are how Hawkwind are meant to be experienced.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spiritualized
Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace was Spiritualized’s 2003 album: the album in which Jason Pierce wholeheartedly embraced gospel music, but without sacrificing his raw, rough-edged garage-rock touch. Recorded with a large, semi-orchestral ensemble. This reissued edition is pressed to heavyweight 180g vinyl and released on the Sanctuary label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

13th Floor Elevators
The Psychedelic Sounds Of

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

The Fernweh
The Fernweh

The Fernweh are a three-piece from Liverpool who play psych/folk/pop/rock that harks back to the late ‘60s/early ‘70s. Their music recalls Piper At The Gates Of Dawn-era Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, Heron, The Trees and many Vertigo and Island bands of that era. Self-titled LP and CD on Skeleton Key.

Günter Schickert
Nachtfalter

Gunter Schickert initially learned the trumpet before making the guitar hsi axe of choice. This led to free jazz and echo guitar experimentation. His debut album, Samtvogel, was released in the mid-seventies. It earned him comparisons to Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd and is highly regarded in the world of Krautrock. It’s 1980 follow-up, Überfällig, was where his signature echo guitar sound really took hold. He has being releasing albums steadily ever since. Nachtfalter, his latest, once again showcases his echo guitar sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

BEAK>
>>>

Beak’s third album, >>>, follows on from > and >>. Does this show a lot or very little imagination when it comes to naming albums? Anyway, the classy electronic three-piece who are led by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow have taken another step forward and their sound grows along with the stages they’re invited to play on. LP and CD on Invada.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Anthroprophh
Omegaville

The latest racket from Paul Allen (the Heads) and cohorts, this is his third release under this barely pronounceable name for Rocket. Omegaville is described as chaotic riffage taking in music concrete, sci-fi noise pop, balls out rock and psych chaos. A place where rock, prog and art can safely meet. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spiritualized
Fucked Up Inside

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

Hey Colossus
The Guillotine

Some bands begin to edge out of the shadows, allowing the brightness of accessible production and relatable lyricism to evolve their work, while others sink deeper into darker and insular innovation. Hey Colossus are a group that are doing the latter, as proven by immersive and razor-sharp The Guillotine.

Circle
Terminal

You can count on Finland’s Circle to provide the goods, always pulling together the finest and weirdest bits of rock etc. history into their (surprisingly cohesive) whole. Terminal is full of proggy flair, krautrock space-power, psychedelic flavour, heavy metal heft and much else besides, making for a dense and wonderful sound. Out on Southern Lord.
