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.

Chris Forsyth
All Time Present

There are lists of guitarists in the history of rock, often called Steve or Joe, who can play all of the notes at once time in 11/8 time, but y’know that their albums aren’t that great. Chris Forsyth has the guitar chops to rival any man, but he also makes good albums. All Time Present is his latest expansive, psychedelic effort. On No Quarter.

The Chocolate Watchband
This Is My Voice

Legendary Californian garage rockers The Chocolate Watchband formed in 1965. They released three albums, split up and reformed then split up again. That was 1970. They reformed in 1999 releasing one studio album and a live album. In 2013 they got back together to record a new album. Six whole years later we have that album - This Is My Voice. It seems they needed to come back to tell Trump what they think of him. LP and CD on Dirty Water.

Dead Sea Apes
The Free Territory

Dead Sea Apes have previously released a record called Sixth Side Of The Pentagon, which is either a very good or very bad title depending on how high you are (Norman says: don’t do drugs). On new LP The Free Territory this Mancunian group double down on the stoner chic, serving up some powerful and doomy psych-rock. The Free Territory’s title track, for instance, is a gigantic sludge of riff and reverb that would make Sleep proud. Very nice stuff.

The 16th Dream Of Dr. Sardonicus Festival Live

The 16th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus was a music festival held at the behest of Fruits De Mer records and Sendelica in a basement in Cardigan. Though attempts were made to preserve the whole affair, some ghosts got in the machine and got in the way. What you can hear are the likes of Elfin Bow, The Fertility Cult and Consterdine in as close to their natural habitat as you can get.

Justo Bagüeste & Suso Saiz
Inducing The Pleasure Dreams V2

Inducing The Pleasure Dreams is an album with high aims: it wishes to bring the listener into a dream state, but only in a good way. Justo Bagueste and Suso Saiz were asked to perform the 1995 original album in 2016, but chose instead to create something new within the same mindspace, with a few samples supporting a suite of fresh meditation. V2 is released by Geometrik.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Forgotten Graves

Ooh they love a 10" don't they? Two new tracks from the ever fruitful the Brian Jonestown Massacre including 'Forgotten Graves' which is exclusive to this release and has been written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war. Over on the flip is  “Tombes Oubliées” which has been culled from their forthcoming self titled LP (their second of 2018).  

Popol Vuh
The Essential Album Collection Vol. 1

Prog rock-electronica outfit Popol Vuh probably reside in the shadows of Can and Neu when it comes to staking their claim as the most influential ‘70s band to come out of Germany in the 1970s. Nevertheless, they are still trailblazers when it comes to the use of the Moog synthesizer. They also hit it off with German filmmaker Werner Herzog, recording soundtracks to several classic films. 'The Essential Album Collection Vol. 1' includes; 'Affenstunde' (1970), 'Hosianna Mantra' (1972), 'Einsjäger & Siebenjäger' (1974), 'Aguirre' (1976), 'Nosferatu' (1978) 2LP.

The Gluts
Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip

Third LP from Milanese rockers The Gluts here. The thing’s called Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip. It’s out on Fuzz Club, a label that has previously released records by acts with names like Sonic Jesus and The Underground Youth. Yep, that’s right - you better believe that this is some loud-as-hell psych-rock we’ve got our hands on here. Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip will melt faces from 50 feet.

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation
Mirage

Mirage, the second full-length from Josefin Öhrn and her group The Liberation, is a psychedelic record that is more interesting and unusual than a whole lot of psychedelic records. Öhrn’s cool vocals and melodic craft bring a Broadcasty touch that is very welcome. Both CD and vinyl editions come dressed in a holographic sleeve! On Rocket.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mr. Ray
Interior

Interior is the debut album from Berlin psychedelic outfit Mr. Ray, which feels like the early ‘70s songwriting aesthetics of Neil Young or Joni Mitchell meeting classic British psychedelia and a ton of reverb. At its best, it’s an absolutely symphonic combination that’ll find favour with fans of classic rock and pop.

Bob Bell
Necropolis

Side one of Bob Bell’s 1978 LP Necropolis is lo-fi scuzzy guitar work-out with motorik rhythms and psychedelic tendencies. It’s reminiscent of ‘90s basement dwellers Cul-De-Sac. Side Two shows a different side to Bob Bell as he takes his saxophone on a free-jazz trip. A beautiful noise. Reissue LP on Telephone Explosion.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Doors
The Doors

There’s so much to be said of The Doors but the only words truly worth listening to are those that the band recorded to wax and there cannot be any better starting point than their eponymous debut album. An electrifying LP with heavy hitters such as Break on Through (To The Other Side) and Soul Kitchen, the LP finishes with eleven brooding minutes of bubbling insanity, and surely the band’s most recognisable track - The End.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Fishing For Fishies

What’s the point in releasing an album every 2-3 years? Why not just release stuff all the time? This certainly seems to be the approach of the weed-fueled Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Fishing For Fishes is their thirteenth album in 7 years. Imagine how many they’ll release if their career lasts as long as The Rolling Stones? Keep it up, guys! On Flightless.

Prana Crafter
MindStreamBlessing

MindStreamBlessing by Prana Crafter AKA Will Sol, is an album that you’ll probably want to make some time and space for. You need to be sitting/lying still to absorb this cosmic psych medicine mixed up from guitar, organ and drums. You should know that from the title though, right? On Cardinal Fuzz.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Rudolf Abramov
Krass Kontrast

Mini album from machine funk duo Rudolf Abramov. There's is a disparate set of influences, from Turkish disco to krautrock, the result being a kind of dubby EBM. The drums exist in acres of space and the bass is unrelenting in its precision. All seen over by deep and enigmatic vocals. Krass Kontrast is on Hoga Nord.

Dragonfly
Dragonfly

NOT to be confused with the group that represented Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest a decade ago, Dragonfly’s self-titled 1968 album is generally considered to be one of the strangest and heaviest albums ever made. A lunatic, lysergic mixture of proto-metal and psychedelic rock, it’s re-issued here on vinyl with a bonus interview, photographs and two extra tracks. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Black Delta Movement
Preservation

The Black Delta Movement have picked up a little momentum going into their debut LP Preservation. Anton Newcombe and Alan McGee are thought to be fans of the Hull psych-rockers, and the group have toured with Drenge and The Jesus And Mary Chain. It’s easy to see why Newcombe’s a fan - the ten tunes here bear more than a smidgen of influence from The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Sleep
Leagues Beneath

Described on the press release as a '17 minute plunge' this is the first new material from legendary stoners Sleep following on from their much acclaimed The Sciences LP on Third Man. Recorded as a part of a series of songs for Adult Swim this is said to be 'a right good aural experience' (our words). 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Oscillation
Wasted Space

London psychedeliacs The Oscillation drop their second LP of the year on Fuzz Club (Lumerians, Sonic Jesus). Wasted Space is a record of slightly proggy space-rock jams that are powered by some cracking work from the rhythm section. The likes of ‘Drop’ drive forward on grooves equal-parts Motorik beat and the cosmic house of Screamadelica-era Primal Scream.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Tarotplane
First

Baltimore resident PJ Dorsey releases his first album as his solo project Tarotplane. First is a nicely psyched-out journey, with tasty lashings of komische. Guitars are treated and reverbed, tape loops and field recordings filter in and out of the mix, and the results are all-round transportative. LP release on Aguirre.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Overhang Party
Otherside Of

Overhang Party were a ‘90s Japanese three-piece who plied their trade in the psych-rock field. The band consisted of Rinji Fukuoka, Kouji Nishino and Iwao Yamazaki. The band are best described as a mix between The Velvet Underground and avant-garde musician Tony Conrad. Otherside Of, which was originally released in 2000, collects together live recordings made between 1995 and 1999. On Pataphysique.
  • Genre(s):

Papir
Papir

Danish group Papir release their debut LP via Stickman Records (Motorpsycho, The Wedding Present). The long-form instrumental psych-rock jams that make up Papir’s eponymous record are reminiscent of the likes of Fridge and Tortoise. There are strong whiffs of free jazz and electronic rock to the quieter sections of tracks like ‘UNE FRENSAL N-ERIT’.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Kongle
Skogen

From Bergen in Norway come Kongle, one of those fun-time psych-jazz pop outfits that they have now. Skogen is the group’s debut album, and it’s packed full of Norwegian lyrics and stylings, perfect for the Scandinavia-fan in your life. Kongle’s Skogen is released by Blanca Records.

Holger Czukay

Evil Blizzard
VILEVILIVE

This live double album captures Evil Blizzard - the Preston band known for their four bassists and fondness for rubber masks - headlining Summer Rock Solstice Festival in 2018. The sound falls in various places between classic heavy metal and positively grizzy sludge - with the bass turned up to 11.

Porcupine Tree
Signify

First released in 1996, Signify is the fifteen-track record from long running prog/psych outfit Porcupine Tree. A genuinely mesmerising affair, the record gives everything an indie-rock album should give- a classic blend of solid guitar riffs and deep, well thought-out drum patterns that align with the records’ time-period.

Popol Vuh
Aguirre

After 40 years, Popol Vuh’s 1972 soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, released originally in 1975, is available to the public again. This release of the hypnotic and engrossing soundtrack to that dystopian and intense film shows how good the music was: uplifting with an underlying sense of dread, but, thankfully, not as terrifying as Klaus Kinski. Also features a bonustrack.

Mythic Sunship
Upheaval

After a handful of cassette releases, 2016 saw the first full length vinyl LP / CD from the Copenhagen spacerockers. They have a firm grounding in of Sabbath-esque stoner sensibilities, but their lengthy instrumental jams also have a lysergic touch of Guru Guru's free rock, and the wild present day psych of Pharaoh Overlord and Acid Mothers Temple.

The Velvet Underground
1969

This reissue of The Velvet Underground’s 1969 feels like walking into a living room full of old friends. All the favourites are there, drink in hand: “I’m Sticking with You”, “Rock and Roll” and “Andy’s Chest”, but they’ve changed a bit, as old friends do. There’s original mixes taken from the infamous tour of 1969 as well as rare instrumentals, alternate versions and mixes from 2014 never before pressed into vinyl.

Merry Airbrakes
Merry Airbrakes

Bluesman Watermelon Slim has had a number of other careers ranging from newspaper reporter to petty criminal, all of which make him sound like an interesting character. His first foray into music was under the name Merry Airbrakes. He recorded one self-titled album which kinda ploughs a psych-folk furrow. LP and CD, both limited to 500 copies each, on Scissor Tail Editions.

Fixity
No Man Can Tell

Sophomore LP from Dan Walsh’s Fixity project here. As it was on previous Fixity offerings like The Things In The Room, No Man Can Tell finds Walsh teaming up with a number of session jazzers for a set of highly original jazz-adjacent improvisations. Doom-jazz, free music, stoner metal and the large-ensemble spiritual experiments of artists like Horace Tapscott are all at work here. It makes No Man Can Tell an unusual and intriguing listen.

Fixity
The Things In The Room

Dan Walsh was busy in 2016. One of the four records released by the Irish musician under his Fixity name was The Things In The Room, an LP tracked in Sweden with three other musicians. These improvisations are highly potent doom/free-jazz numbers that touch on everything from Melt Yourself Down to Free Nelson Mandoomjazz. Released through Penske Recordings.

Stereocilia
The Silence That Follows

So what John Scott does when he’s in Stereocilia mode is make a bunch of loops, drones and textures out of his electric guitar until he ends up with these really dense soundscapes. It’s a trick that he repeats on his excellent new LP The Silence That Follows. Anyone familiar with Cankun will know what we’re on about. There’s a bit of Tangerine Dream to this thing as well.

The Bevis Frond
New River Head

New River Head was the 7th release by The Bevis Frond. It is regarded as the best album to buy to get into their sprawling back catalogue as it juxtaposes melodic genius on songs such as He’d Be A Diamond with psych-rock wig outs on the 17-minute Miskatonic Variations II. Both are typical examples of the Bevis Frond sound.
  • 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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Weyes Blood
Titanic Rising

Winning the award for most confusing, convoluted press release of the decade is the new album from Weyes Blood. It turns out her fourth album is influenced by things as disparate as Bob Seger, madrigal choirs, Hoagy Carmichael and scholar Joseph Campbell. It's also influenced by the Titanic -  a boat which sunk once. Her last album was just great so here's hoping those array of influences allow something equally magical here.  

Steven R. Smith
A Sketchbook Of Endings

Steven R. Smith presents his first solo album under his own name (rather than as Ulaan Markhor or Ulaan Passerine) in eight whole years. A Sketchbook Of Endings is a suite of fifteen instrumental pieces that manage to establish whole worlds in mere minutes. Lots of semi-abstract guitar and big sweeping moods. On Soft Abuse.

Birth
Live In Tuscon

That’s the band Birth Live In Tucson, not just any old birth. This duo also play in The Myrrors, a band who are a favourite of the Cardinal Fuzz roster, so it makes sense for the Yorkshire label to be fronting this record. Live In Tucson is a highly potent improvisation that draws from stargazing mystics like LaMonte Young, Spacemen 3 and Terry Riley.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Frank Zappa
Zappa In New York

Dramatically expanded editions of Frank Zappa’s double live album Zappa In New York, recorded over four nights in late December 1976 at The Palladium. New listeners can hear the set in audiophile quality, while old fans can enjoy the wealth of unreleased live material from Zappa’s vaults for die-hard fans.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Desert Ships
Eastern Flow

Desert Ships second album, Eastern Flow, is reportedly an impressive mix of Pet Sounds, Autobahn and Serge Gainsbourg whilst adhering to, and improving the band’s dreamwave sound. It was recorded in a few places by a few different people whose fingerprints are on the records of Kate Bush, The Bees and Thurston Moore. It was mixed by Mark Gardener of Ride. LP limited to 250 copies, self-released.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Jimi Hendrix
Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Which is the best Jimi Hendrix album? Probably this one as it contains all the best of his songs including 'Crosstown Traffic', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Foxy Lady'. Anyway if you are new to the guitar maestro then this would be a good place to start. They've spread it across a double album too.

Tokyo Flashback P.S.F. - Psychedelic Speed Freaks

Big old set of psych-rock goodness here. Over the course of three decades Hideo Ikeezumi’s P. S. F. Records established itself as one of the most vital forces in Japan’s experimental, garage and noise rock scenes. Now the compilation Tokyo Flashback P.S.F. - Psychedelic Speed Freaks celebrates Ikeezumi’s legacy by fronting new contributions from almost two-dozen of the Japanese underground’s most vital acts. Curated by Ghost’s Masaki Batoh, Tokyo Flashback P.S.F. features exclusives from Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., Keiji Haino and Reizen.

Losing Touch With My Mind – Psychedelia In Britain 1986-1990

Cherry Red’s excellent series of box-sets curating various sub-genres and micro-scenes turns to British psychedelia in the late 1980s. While it includes big hitters from the era like The Stone Roses, Spacemen 3 and Primal Scream, the real joy of this 3-CD set is the exhumation of hidden gems from long-lost bands.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mary Lattimore & Mac McCaughan
New Rain Duets

Utter beauty is captured on ‘New Rain Duets’, the collaboration between Mary Lattimore and Mac McCaughan. Liquid harp melds seamlessly with an amorphous world of electronics, odd ticks and splatters of dissonance enriching and extending rather than detracting from the aforementioned beauty. It’s a vital collaborative effort.
  • Genre(s):

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Non Ex Orbis

Third album, and first in ten years from kraut-jazz-rock band Karl Hector & The Malcouns. The band are from Munich, historically fertile ground for krautrock producing the likes of Amon Düül and Popol Vuh. On Non Ex Orbis The Malcouns do their city proud, improvising around their experimental brand of music.

Laughing Eye
Laughing Eye

Laughing Eye is Hanna Östergren, notoriously a player in both Hills and Träd Gräs och Stenar. This self-titled release is a true stunner, ‘nordic raga’ is the ascribed genre, and it's a perfect fit, not focusing on having a specific sense of direction but open and trance-like - while the sounds themselves feel deeply rooted in Europe.

Mt. Mountain
Golden Rise

So good they (sort of) named them twice. Mt. Mountain are another Australian band that have found a home at the purveyors of the finest psych-rock, Cardinal Fuzz. The Perth band plough the brooding psych-rock furrow and have toured in support of bands like Boris, Sleep and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Golden Rise is their new and third LP.
  • Genre(s):

Motorpsycho
The Crucible

We’ve been in a new year for a while now which means it’s about time for a new Motorpsycho album. Just like the band members’ beards, the songs are only getting longer with age, The Crucible needing only three of them to deliver their trademark crazy progressive post-rock that we've come to love over the past 30 years.

Popol Vuh
Nosferatu

Werner Herzog and Popol Vuh had a wonderful and long-running creative relationship, Herzog’s curious cinematic visions matched with Popol Vuh’s exploratory (and consistently beautiful) instrumentals. Nosferatu actually contains two discs, with material that both soundtracked and was inspired by Herzog’s vampire picture. On spooky red and black transparent vinyl.

Deafkids
Configuração do Lamento

Configuração do Lamento is the seventh album from DEAFKIDS. Living together in São Paulo, the band’s jam heavy music is a sticky affair and has seen them become a pretty big deal in their native Brazil and they’ve raked up two European tours in their 10 years too. It’s heavy noise, churning bass and grating guitar and it deserves to be played loud.

Art Of The Memory Palace
Dusk At Trellick Tower

New EP from Art Of The Memory Palace, here paying tribute to an icon of Brutalist modernism with Dusk at Trellick Tower. They do seem to primarily draw on the dystopian perspective of Erno Goldfinger’s building, but then that is a great fit when you have so many synths and processed tape loops to play with. Dark but fun, on Static Caravan.

Gary War
Zontag

Zontag is the totally fun 7-inch single from nutjob Gary War. His output could be impressively termed ‘the most obtuse music produced by a member of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Here he jets in-and-out of cosmic zones in pursuit of his twisted and dense pop muse. Perhaps best enjoyed over these short distances, this one is out on Care in the Community.

Ttotals
Skyview Drive

Skyview Drive is the latest record from Nashville band Ttotals (not a typo). On it they explore their notion of "The Outer Blues", that is a sense of the blues more holistic than just its musical signifiers. For their blues, Ttotals are not afraid to be deep and patient and bold. On Great Ape Records.

Witch
In The Past

Now-Again continue to tell the story of Witch and their garage rock/funk hybrid by reissuing 'In The Past', a record initially released back in 1974. Witch -- also known as We Intend To Cause Havoc - fused genres gleefully into a sound unprecedented within the Zambian scene beforehand. 'In The Past' is a Zamrock cornerstone.

Vibracathedral Orchestra
Unnatural With Pain-Relief

Yet more essential action from the revived Vibracathedral Orchestra. One side is a beautiful resonant jam (I mean, pretty much all VCO meets that description, but this is extra lovely), and on the other we hear the quartet going full throttle at Cafe Oto with assistance from actual drum demon Chris Corsano. Yes! On Krayon Recordings.

Hawkwind
Hawkwind

Hawkwind’s eponymous debut from 1970 is credited with being one of the first space-rock albums. Their mix of psychedelic and prog rock was just, well, far out. This was Hawkwind a couple of LPs before Lemmy got involved. It was produced by guitarist Dick Taylor who hooked up with the band after leaving ‘60s rockers The Pretty Things. 180g vinyl LP on Music On Vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The Honey Pot
Bewildered Jane

With a name like The Honey Pot you’d expect them to be some forgotten ‘60s band or a modern band heavily influenced by the past. They are the latter. They play psychedelic folk rock that is likely to please fans of early Fairport Convention or Mellow Candle. Bewildered Jane is their new album LP and CD on Mega Dodo, CD features bonus track.
  • Genre(s):

Light Conductor
Sequence One

Light Conductor is a pair of modular synthesis dudes, one of whom, perhaps surprisingly, is Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes. Sequence One covers a lot of interesting ground, and feels like more than just modular jamming. A sense of bright meditation, spaced-drone textures and occasional fizzing fuzz blasts. Vinyl release by Constellation.

Tasmania

Australian psych dudes POND come with the approval of Tame Impala: that group’s Kevin Parker produced this new album. Tasmania is a brightly coloured album that wants you to chill out and come to the party, with a playful vocal and synth style that might remind one of MGMT. Tasmania is released by Marathon Artists.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers
ZAM

Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ fifth LP, ZAM, blends indie rock, psychedelic rock, funk and krautrock to make an LP that suits their horror aesthetic down to the ground. Imagine Jack White jamming with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and I reckon you’re most of the way to finding out what they sound like. LP and CD on Greenaway Records. CD features 2 bonus tracks.
  • Genre(s):

Jacco Gardner
Hypnophobia

‘Hypnophobia’ is the new album from Dutch multi-instrumentalist and producer Jacco Gardner. The album is a fantastic tale of exploration told by a baroque pop wizard, casting psychedelic enchantments through the medium of magic and an eclectic collection of beautiful vintage instruments including a Wurlitzer electric piano, mellotrons, harpsichords, an Optigan, and a Steinway upright piano.
  • Genre(s):

Hot Lunch
Seconds

Hot Lunch hail from San Francisco’s Bay Area. They channel proto-metal bands such as Blue Cheer and MC5. Seconds is, believe it or not, their second album. You know what you’re going to get here - high energy, in-your-face, fuzzy rock n roll - and why the hell not, Mothercruncher? It seems, also, that they’ve set themselves on a path to obvious album titles. I look forward to their third album - Dessert. LP and CD on Tee Pee

Sir Richard Bishop & W. David Oliphant / Karkhana with Nadah El Shazly
Carte Blanche

Karkhana are something of a supergroup, with more Middle Eastern and Mediterranean talent than I can reasonably name. Here they play vivid instrumentals while Nadah El Shazly sings at the core of the sound. On the B-side, the most lordly of the Sun City Girls, Sir Alan Bishop, sets forth along with partner in crime W. David Oliphant for some loud fun. Split LP on Unrock.

Spacemen 3
Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

Originally released as a bootleg, the recordings here known as Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To are demo recordings from 1986, and they capture the nascent Spacemen 3 well on their way to becoming the psychedelic behemoths they ultimately were. This reissue, for CD and double LP, features remastered audio and is out on Space Age Recordings.

Tabby Sensibilities
B&W&Tabs

If you like cats and certain recreational products you may well be on to a winner with Tabby Sensibilities. B&W&Tabs is their new album. It is the new project from Russell Smith of Terminal Cheesecake, AR Kane, M/A/A/R/S, Skullflower and God. I think you will probably need to lie down with the cans on and a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door for this one. LP pressed on marbled vinyl, each slightly different colours, limited to 250 copies on The Weird Beard.

Okay Champ
Dead About Thinking

Geordie group Okay Champ drop an LP. Or maybe it’s a mini-LP - it’s only seven tracks, but as most of the seven tracks are quite long it means that Dead About Thinking is in a bit of a grey area between the two. However, what’s certain is that the band’s sound is a tasty bit of Shelllac-ish post-hardcore. Anyone Leeds heads familiar with local legends Bearfoot Beware will know what’s up with Dead About Thinking.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Spacegirl and Other Favourites

San Francisco based psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre have put together ‘Spacegirl And Other Favourites’ from the original vinyl release of the tracks. Title track ‘Spacegirl’ is a drawn out, droning whiteout with psyche chants with bursts of classic seventies organ sounds that pick up the infectious, repetitive melodies and then lay them back down to sleep.

Cavern Of Anti-Matter
Hormone Lemonade

Tim Gane's Cavern Of Anti-Matter return with their third studio album continuing their journey into the bowels of kraut rock by way of modular synths and homemade drum machines. Hormone Lemonade still has the loose improvised feel that will be familiar to those in awe of their previous offerings. 

The Claypool Lennon Delirium
South Of Reality

The psychedelics-fuelled California duo of Sean Lennon and Primus bassist Les Claypool is back after 2016’s Monolith of Phobos with newun South of Reality. Check out that magnificent 1970s sci-fi novel-esque cover art. Self-recorded and self-produced, the songs are sumptuous, lyrical and proggy compositions that go beyond the usual psych reliance on big stoner haze.

Sunwatchers
Illegal Moves

Anybody looking for psyched-out rock with a hint of free jazz and a ton of organ can get their fill here with the new Sunwatchers album. Illegal Moves hosts the usual jams approaching the excessive, left-field chord progressions, and endless solos (both guitar and organ), but also some slightly more meditative tunes -- at least in comparison to the proper noisy stuff. 

Chicago Odense Ensemble
Chicago Odense Ensemble

Chicago Odense Ensemble was a special collaboration between Causa Sui's Jonas Munk and Jakob Skøtt and members of Tortoise and Isotope217 recorded in 2008. Those long and varied sessions were then edited down to create a kind of dubby jazz fusion. The star of the show is Rob Mazurek who leads the way with the wonderfully pure timbre of his cornet. On El Paraiso Records. 

Dungen & Woods
Myths 003

Marfa Myths is a festival in Texas curated by the Mexican Summer label. There you will find all you’d expect from a festival in terms of bands playing live and such, but there are also some special events. One of those events is a recording residency. In 2017,  Swedish psych rockers Dungen collaborated with Brooklyn’s alt. folk rockers, Woods. Myths 003 was the resulting LP. Liner notes from members of each band complete the package. LP on Mexican Summer.

Anemone
Beat My Distance

Debut album from Anemone, a group project emerging from cold-but-creative Montreal. Beat My Distance is, however, as bright and excited as the pastel-coloured cover art, with sunny guitar tones and a psychedelic mood, led by the pop vocals and sharp lyricism of Chloe Soldevila. Released by Luminelle Recordings.

The Telescopes
Exploding Head Syndrome

Exploding Head Syndrome is the 10th album by psych/space rock band The Telescopes. The band formed in 1987 and there has been a revolving cast of players, with Stephen Lawrie being the only constant member in all that time. He really is Mr. Telescope. They take their influences from bands such as 13th Floor Elevators, The Velvet Underground and Suicide. LP and CD on Tapete.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Thank God For Mental Illness

Thank God For Mental Illness is the third album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It was originally released in 1996. Their consistent quality and prolific nature is mind blowing enough, but when you realise that this album was recorded in one day for less than $18, you’ve just got to applaud their chops. Thank God For Mental Illness is available for the first time on vinyl, so to make it that bit more special, the vinyl is yellow and a weighty 180 gm.

Dominique Guiot
L'Univers De La Mer

Exciting reissue of Dominique Guiot’s 1978 library album 'L'Univers De La Mer'. It’s a great lost treasure trove of moog, mellotron, guitar, and clarinet; like 70s prog stripped of grandiosity, the pure aim now exploration. It’s the sense of the composer’s unabashed intrigue in the possibilities of melody and sound that makes this such an endearing release, and where certain tones may have aged, the ideas at play remain timeless.    

Okay Temiz / Johnny Dyani
Witchdoctor's Son

Recorded in Istanbul in 1976, this obscure gem captures a group led by Turkish drummer Okay Temiz and South African pianist and bassist Johnny Dyani, each getting a side-full of their own arrangements. Consider Don Cherry (whose "Marimba, Goddess Of Music” is adapted here) at his most unfettered and you’ll have some idea what to expect. Spaced out, funky, exotic and bursting with enthusiasm and energy, this is a daring, eclectic and wildly successful feat of fusion.

Masaki Batoh
Nowhere

Ghost founder Masaki Batoh drops his fourth solo LP via Drag City. Nowhere is a record of trippy folk songs. The delicately picked guitars here come laced with reverb and delay, and Batoh’s wistful lyrics reflect on ageing and memory. The Beatles, Incredible String Band and John Martyn all spring immediately to mind.

All Them Witches
ATW

The fifth LP from All Them Witches (God I hate that name) surfaces on New West (Caroline Rose, The Devil Makes Three). ATW - Does it count as a self-titled record if it’s just the initials? - finds the Nashville trio smooshing Southern rock and metal stylings together in trademark fashion. Riffs galore. It’s like Mastodon.

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recorded in a studio. So, it's going to be interesting to hear how a band with such grandiose ideas as Spiritualized sound with such severe constraints on the recording process.  

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g white vinyl LP and CD on ’a’ Recordings.

Jimi Hendrix
Both Sides Of The Sky

Excuse me while I listen to this guy! Both Sides of the Sky is a baker’s dozen of recordings that ol’ Jimi Hendrix cut between 1968 and 1970. The majority have never previously seen the light of day. This album the trio of deep-cuts LPs that also includes Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels. Stephen Stills appears on ‘$20 Fine’ and ‘Woodstock’. 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
I'm In Your Mind Fuzz

The psych rock well is running dry at this point so there's only a limited amount of names albums in the genre can have: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have opted to just add the word "fuzz" to the end of any sentence -- their newest effort, I'm In Your Mind Fuzz', might cause a squiggly green line in Microsoft Word, but is actually another joyous excursion into distortion and cosmic envelopments, made out of wah pedals, obscured vocals and trusty riffs that circle back through songs proudly. King Gizzard continue to make extra worlds to step into. Fuzz.

The Bevis Frond
London Stone

The Bevis Frond were an indie band in the classic mould, releasing their earnest, slightly scrappy rock action on an array of small labels. The time has come for some reissues: here we have London Stone, recorded in 1991 but not released until 2005, bolstered by a set of bonus tracks (demos and rarities). CD / double LP on the Fire label.
