Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

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

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance moves and mutant funk in too. Let's kraut boogie.

Straight Arrows
On Top!

Agitated Records (The Icarus Line, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys) drop an LP of scuzzy garage rock from the home of scuzzy rock - Australia. Straight Arrows are from Sydney, which as Aussie cities go isn’t at the top of the pecking order when it comes to garage-punk bands, but on On Top! the group turn in a collection of ramshackle rockers that will do their pals in Melbourne proud.

Various
Running The Voodoo Down Vol. 2 - Explorations In Psychrockfunksouljazz 1965-77

Overlaps of jazz and rock music have often been abominable, but the precise area explored by Running The Voodoo Down is the particularly rich seam of, well, ‘psychrockfunksouljazz’. That’s the sixties-seventies sweet-spot where black musicians used all available means to create super-powerful, soulful, rhythmic music. Includes Isaac Hayes, John Coltrane and Sonny Sharrock.

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe

Though only one of them features on the cover, this is the second collaboration between husky chanteuse Tess Parks and never knowingly not soaking wet Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe.  Expect slow moving druggy melodies and something that sounds a bit like Hope Sandoval fronting the Brian Jonestown Massacre. A sound that surely is only a good thing. 

The Smoking Trees
The Adventure Continues

On The Adventure Continues, Los Angeles’ The Smoking Trees (these days down to just a single smoking tree known as Sir Psych) continue their trippy adventure on the mouth-watering Burger Records. Expect relatively blazed, introspective and calm tunes all written, mixed and produced by the knight himself.

Two Medicine
Astropsychosis

Peaceful psychedelic rock is a genre underrepresented in between all the endless distorted guitar solos we get to listen to here at Norman HQ. Two Medicine, created by Paul Alexander from indie/psych rockers Midlake, are taking a much more poppy approach to psychedelia. Named after a part of Glacier National Park, the album flaunts a romantic sound, something of an appreciation of quiet, peace, and natural beauty.

Orchestra Of Spheres
Mirror

Orchestra Of Spheres hail from New Zealand and make a kind of funk-pop-rock-afro sound not too far removed from pioneers of such sounds Talking Heads. Mirror is their fourth album for Fire Records and sees them expanding on their sound with orchestral elements and tape experiments. They are pretty way out, and it seems that they are moving further in that direction too. Alexander Tucker of Grumbling Fur and Robert Scott of legendary NZ bands The Bats and The Clean are among their celebrity fans. LP and CD on Fire Records.

Modern Cosmology
Summer Long

Astonishingly this collaboration between Stereolab chanteuse Letitia Sadier and Brazilian band Mombojo has almost exactly the same name as the title of the recent Jane Weaver album. I mean, it’s unbelievable isn’t it? How does that happen?  Anyway this should be a nice small album of  bossa-nova, pop, and psychedelia for summer. 

Small Faces
Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake (50th Anniversary Edition)

They’re back. After fifty long years, they’re back. Those tiny men with the Small Faces. Their 1968 LP ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake doesn’t need an introduction. The Record With The Title That Is Bad sold truckloads on release and topped the charts for over a month. It contains the extremely popular and supremely irritating ‘Lazy Sunday’ and a load of other psych-rock fluff. These 50th anniversary editions have been remastered because that’s what you do nowadays.

Genesis
Trespass

Trespass was the second album by Genesis, originally released in 1970. This album featured the pre-Phil Collins original line-up with Anthony Phillips and John Mayhew in place on guitar and drums respectively. Standout track The Knife is widely regarded as one of the best songs from the band’s early period. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Heaters
Suspended Youth

An album a year? No problem. Consider it done. Here’s Grand Rapids, Michigan psych/garage quartet Heaters, now on their fourth LP since 2015. Still, a lot happens in four years and the lyrics throughout newun Suspended Youth seem to reflect an increasing awareness of the passage of time. Sorry to report, band of twentysomethings, but it only gets worse!

Melodic Energy Commission
Migration Of The Snails

Melodic Energy Commission were a Canadian space rock collective who featured members of Hawkwind and who played an exploratory blend of hippie-ish psychedelia, guitar freak outs and out there electronics. This rarity has now been re-issued and should appeal to fans of Amon Düüll II, Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Causa Sui
Free Ride

Free Ride by Causa Sui is a modern psych-rock classic that has been out of print for ten years out of the eleven that it’s been alive. It was the second album by the Danish outfit who feature Jonas Munk, who remastered this for reissue, among their ranks. The album rocks like a lorry full of bricks in a similar way to Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Mudhoney and Kyuss but also showcases the more contemplative side of psychedelia on the title track.  Double vinyl LP or CD with 20-minute live bonus track on El Paraiso Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Here Lies Man
You Will Know Nothing

Antibalas offshoot Here Lies Man follow up 2017’s well-received debut LP. You Will Know Nothing sees the group going just as deep on their Black Sabbath-meets-Fela Kuti thing. On a lot of the songs - lead single ‘Fighting’ for example - traditional rock instrumental roles are reversed. While the thick riffs keep steady away, a mixture of kit drums and tuned percussion are free to invent as they please. It’s a stirring psychedelic mix.

Cave
Release

Who's up for some B-sides and loose ends? Hopefully, Cave fans: these kraut-psychers released their colourful new record 'Threace' last year, and they're following it up with a record of unfinished ideas that didn't have anywhere in particular to go. 'Release' brings together tunes that didn't quite fit on anything else the band has cooked up thus far, which, for Caves, is an exciting prospect: it's the sound of a chaotic band letting go of a hundred ideas at once. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Perhaps
Hexagon

The Bandcamp for Riot Season claims that the label doesn’t have a signature style, but this blurb writer would beg to differ. Not in a bad way, mind - the label’s releases are often characterised by an air of darkside psychedelia a class apart from many other heavy psych labels. Perhaps’ Hexagon LP, with its two side-long blasts of frenzied Krautrock, slots in nicely to a RS roster that includes The Cosmic Dead and Hey Colossus.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
IC-01 Hanoi

Here’s an unexpected release: Whilst recording their recent LP ‘Sex & Food’, Unknown Mortal Orchestra found themselves regularly jamming with local musicians at Phu Sa Studios in Hanoi. With fuzzy guitars and sporadic saxophone, it’s an instrumental exploration of the jazz, fusion and avant-garde which usually remain at the fringes of their sound. 'IC-01 Hanoi' is an insight into a specific time for Unknown Mortal Orchestra; an unexpected mish-mash of jam sessions featuring frontman Ruban Nielson’s father, and local Vietnamese musicians in the capital of Vietnam.

William Onyeabor
World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor?

'Who is William Onyeabor' indeed? This vast collection from Luaka Bop should clear the question up. Rising from obscurity to fame, Onyeabor's deliriously danceable Afro-funk marries hot grooves with lo-fi electronics, awarding him the status of one of the continent's visionary producers. Need convincing? Listen to 'Good Name' and don't look back.

Moontribe
Moontribe

Rippling rhythms and deft descents into deep zones of satisfaction from Moontribe via Tel-Aviv’s Middle Eastern curio reissue label Fortuna Records. And a beautiful sleeve to boot. Who, what, when and why is Moontribe? While no answers to those are forthcoming, a load of splendidly absorbing sounds certainly are.

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension. When not actually tipping over into angsty, swirling noise-pop, the songs often sit anxiously right on the edge, ready to go.

Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam
Blackout Cowboy

Robert Pollard is referenced in the press release for the new album by Birmingham's Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam. They say it is because they’re comparing the band’s prolific nature to his, but I think the real reason is that the band have taken their name from a yet to be released Guided By Voices album. They don’t sound much like Guided By Voices, however. They are an indie rock band who seemingly never turn the fi up past mid, though, but with a bit more of an in-your-face attitude. Blackout Cowboy is their latest offering. LP on By The Time It Gets Dark.

Jean Cohen-Solal
Captain Tarthopom

On the cover of his first album Flutes Libres, Jean Cohen-Solal boldly declared that ‘nothing can stop a flautist’. While that statement may be up for debate, Cohen-Solal’s 1973 sophomore LP Captain Tarthopom goes about making a compelling case for the humble flute. He coaxes a great range of sounds and styles from his instrument - at times he overdubs harmonies on the Captain Beefheart-ish ‘Ludions’, at others he lets the instrument wander over experimental dronescapes. Mentioned on the legendary Nurse With Wound list!

Tangerine Dream
The Pink Years Albums 1970-1973

Tangerine Dream’s first four records are yoked together for a reissue by the Esoteric sub-label Reactive. Not too much more to say about the quartet of LPs that make up The Pink Years: Albums 1970 - 1973. People went cuckoo for the forward-thinking Kraut-tronics of Electronic Meditation, Alpha Centauri, Zeit and Atem back in the day. This package, containing for CDs and a poster in a nice little box, is a good way to bring them back into your life.

Charalambides
Charalambides: Tom and Christina Carter

Though Tom and Christina Carter have enjoyed long and varied solo careers, they are also known for their long running acid-fried improvisational duo Charalambides. You'd think from the title that this was a 'best of' of some sort but no this is a new studio album, delving deeper into their hypnotic world. Recorded over two sessions with no overdubs this is sure to be a fascinating take on the duo at work.      

Paternoster
Die Ersten Tage (The First Days)

Rare Austrian prog-providers Paternoster only ever released one album, but there is more to their story than that! They also made a soundtrack to a ‘hippie sci-fi’ film called Die Ersten Tage in 1971, which was never released on record… Until now! This presentation of the soundtrack additionally adds in demos from their debut album, also incredibly rare. A crucial addition to Paternoster history.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Cave
Allways

Heady funkadelia jammers Cave are back, so come a-diving into their… rock chamber. Once again on Drag City, the nowadays quintet put this one together after a world tour and it’s quite a melting pot of giddy grooves. There’s electric bass, acid bass, gentle crescendos, muzak vocals, lots and lots of guitar and lots and lots of funk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Univers Zero
Ceux Du Dehors

Ceux Du Dehors was the third album by Belgian prog band Univers Zero. The album is heavily influenced by American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, whose short story, The Outsider (Ceux Du Dehors translates as Those From Outside) was read by each band member immediately before recording the album. The band’s sound has been likened to a darker version of that produced by classical minimalists Steve Reich and Philip Glass. Limited edition clear/red vinyl LP on Sub Rosa.

Rhys Bloodjoy
Love Is A Fucked Up Goddess (Parts II & I)

Noisy Manchester enfant terrible Rhys Bloodjoy has finally smashed together his first two noisy EPs: Love Is a Fucked Up Goddess: Parts I & II, sold out on cassette (50 copies each). But not anymore! Expect thick, thumping beats and painfully distorted guitars and vocals. The psychedelia here well buried underneath 6 feet of noise, revealing itself occasionally to the close listener.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mountain Movers
Pink Skies

I thought the album art was a number of lollipops, it isn't. It's a number of trees that look like lollipops. Yes there is a pretty big difference. Pink Skies is the latest record by Mountain Movers and is available on a limited pink vinyl LP (that you're only going to get from indie stores) and on black vinyl LP. Released on Trouble In Mind. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Pink Floyd
The Wall

Pink Floyd's legendary rock opera The Wall gets a gatefold 2xLP reissue that doubles as a wall. The album that gets hailed as the Floyd's 'punk record' actually features their most (un)comfortably 'prog' anthem, as well as, y'know, THAT one that you hear in every pub ever. So raise your finger to Thatcher and invest in some seriously epic wax.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Kris Gietkowski
Symmetric Communication

Full-on prog action from Kris Gietkowski! If you are a fan of the band Egg, then you’ve got to hear this, as Kris took their early material as his inspiration for Symmetric Communication. No trendy nonsense, just beautiful progressive rock fun. This is a joint release between Fruits de Mer and Strange Fish: a perfect match-up if ever there was one.

Movion
Blank

Brighton’s Drone Rock Records continues to live up to its name by releasing music associated with a) one or more drones and b) rock. This time it’s instrumental trio Movion of Turin, Italy, stirring up a batch of psychedelic and slightly droney post-rock with the thrillingly-titled Blank. Better than naming it after the album track ‘Stereo Individuals’, I suppose.

Les Big Byrd
Iran Iraq IKEA

The second LP from Stockholm rockers Les Big Byrd drops courtesy of the reliable PNKSLM Records (Miss World, Shit Girlfriend). Not sure who let them call this one Iran Iraq IKEA (Banksy, perhaps?), but either way this is a record of psych-y, hypnagog-y indie-garage. There are some lovely harmonies here that give tracks like ‘A Little More Numb’ a bit of an Ariel Pink/The War On Drugs feel.

Holger Czukay
Der Osten Ist Rot

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, went on to produce a considerable quantity of weird and wonderful pop. Der Osten ist Rot (‘The East is Red’ as indeed it was in those days) is his fourth solo album, dating from 1984, and it is awash with humour, grooves, and all-round subversive life energy. Reissued by the Grönland label.

Holger Czukay
Rome Remains Rome

Holger Czukay, core member of the crucial German experimental group Can, also created weird and wonderful pop / krautrock music of his own. On 1987’s Rome Remains Rome, he has assistance not only from Can drummer Jaki Leibezeit, but also from Public Image Limited etc.’s Jah Wobble, plus a well-dropped sample of Pope John Paul II on one track. Fun stuff! Reissued on Grönland.

Groundhogs
Blues Obituary

Groundhog Day: Bill Murray’s opportunity for self-discovery repeated every day. Groundhogs Day: the same British album reissued on one format or another at least once every decade. Happy Groundhogs Day! Someone out there is determined for this band to remain in circulation, and with their prodigiously early take on psychedelic blues, you can hear why. This latest iteration also includes a few extras.

Kikagaku Moyo
Masana Temples

Rejoicing tears fill my eyes as the greatest psych rock band of our generation return from holiday. They put out a mini-LP a while ago but it simply wasn't enough, so on Masana Temples they go full blast again, continuing to mix and match stoner churn with ethereal distortion, anachronistic folk music and that ol' repetitive Krautrock stuff. All over the place but always captivating, Kikagaku Moyo do something inexplicable that others like them don't.

Boris
Live at Third Man Records

Last year the long-running Tokyo heavy rockers marked the ten year anniversary of their landmark stoner opus PINK by playing it in full and at massive volume at Nashville’s Third Man Records. Happily, the Blue Room is kitted out with a snazzy analogue recording setup, so the set was committed to (actual) tape. This limited Black Friday LP release features five tracks from that night (and a companion release of Earth’s support set is also available).

UFO Över Lappland
UFO Över Lappland

UFO Över Lappland is a somewhat more literal name than it first appear to be (emphasis on the 'somewhat', mind). This group are actually from Lappland, and we understand how witnessing the majesty of the Aurora Borealis day in, day out might lead one to wonder every now and then if they were the work of some extraterrestrial beings. As for the music of this, their debut LP? With a name like that it was always going to be stoner rock.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Sherpa
Tigris & Euphrates

Blissed-out Sherpa return to psych label Sulatron with Tigris & Euphrates. The Italian band’s second album slows down the pace of their triptastic, Krauty, East-gazing style. Though the melodic style is in a different tradition, they texturally almost come across like slowcore post-rock (Zelienople or Labradford) in the quietest sections.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Claudio Simonetti's Goblin
Dawn Of The Dead

Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin is a resurrection of Goblin by founding member Simonetti who composed many soundtracks to cult horror films including Deep Red, Suspiria, and George A. Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead. Here is a 40 year anniversary re-release, with the full score as well as live versions and remixes/covers from Autogeddon, kETvECTOR, and Daemonia. Limited LP or CD on Rustblade.

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.  

Windhand
Eternal Return

Virginia rockers Windhand release their fourth LP via Relapse. It’s not often that you hear groups attempt to blend grunge, metal and psych-rock, but Windhand give it a good go on Eternal Return. The heavy riffs of tunes like ‘Grey Garden’ are pitched somewhere between Soundgarden, Sleep and Electric Wizard, while the vocals are equal parts Cobain and Hetfield. They often incorporate some nice melodic guitar playing into the tracks too.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Love
Revisited

Love Revisited was a rather odd compilation of tracks from the first four Love albums. The Elektra years if you will. I guess it was originally intended as a starter point for those who hadn't already hooked on to the bands exquisite form of folk rock but given the success of Forever Changes it's rather odd to see only three tracks taken from the now legendary album. Still, it's a good place to start and if you don't trust that they did anything else as good as Forever Changes then this is proof to the contrary.

Mueller_Roedelius
Imagori II

The second collaborative LP between Christoph H. Müller (Gotan Project) and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Harmonia, Cluster) drops via Grönland. Much like 2015’s Imagori, Imagori II is a collection of deep, patient downtempo electronica in the !K7/Kompakt mould. Guests include Miss Kenichi and, on ‘La Vie En Bleu’, Müller’s own daughter. Cute.

Mild High Club x King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Rolling Stoned

As the saying goes, there’s two sides to every song, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard and Mild High Club get one 7” side to record their own take on the same track. “Rolling Stoned” – originally written by Mild High Club’s frontman Alex Brettin – featured as a hidden track on their debut Timeline album back in 2015. After both bands collaborated to produce the jazzy “Sketches of Brunswick East” album last year, this release is just the epilogue we need (and deserve).
  • Genre(s):

Danielson
Snap Outtavit

Despite being known to dress as a tree, Daniel Smith is surely one of America's most underrated musicians. His Danielson Famile and Danielson and Bro Danielson records are wild joyful rides through the back roads of avant indie folk. Recent albums show a newfound maturity gained from being a dad and raising kids and (whisper it) are all the better for it.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Hatchback
Year of The Dragon

After seven years away Sam Grawe’s Hatchback project returns with its third full-length record. As with previous LPs Colors Of The Sun and Zeus & Apollo, Year Of The Dragon is an electronic music album full of bright colours and textures. Tracks like ‘Haiphong Boogie’ are burbling delights that bring to mind the releases of labels like Mood Hut, Second Circle and Smalltown Supersound. As it is, this one’s out on Lo Recordings (Grimes, Ceephax Acid Crew).

Various
Follow The Sun

Compiled by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) and Keith Abrahamsson of Anthology Recordings and Mexican Summer, Follow The Sun traces the lesser known rock/pop/folk that came from Australia during the 70s. Ranging from psychedelic to the garage pop it’s a grand voyage of the undiscovered. Comes with download code.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare
I See What I Became

Bearded, black-clad duo Mirrors for Psychic Warfare - that’s Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Sanford Parker (Buried at Sea) - return to Neurot Recordings with I See What I Became. In one of the mirrors, no doubt. The pair churn out a fairly wicked concoction of slow, instrumental hardcore doom with a very electronic sound - there’s even sidechaining in there. Beard EDM.

Blackfield
Open Mind - The Best Of Blackfield

Long-serving rockers Blackfield issue a Best Of collection via Kscope. The band draw from a five-album discography for Open Mind, and the fifteen tunes here serve as a neat overview to the body of work Aviv Geffen and former Porcupine Tree member Steven Wilson have built up over the years. Though Blackfield’s music has taken in everything from chamber-pop to trip-hop down the years, all of their stuff has a strong whiff of The Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead.

The House Of Love
The House Of Love

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's time once again to delve back into the House of Love's self titled debut which remains a high water mark of their career. In 2012 we got a 3CD set but now Cherry Red have managed to swell it out to a 5CD set with even more non album, session and live tracks. But it's the original album you need which has also been spread over a double LP for maximum impact.

39th & The Nortons
Mourning Waltz

Straight outta Paris come 39th & The Nortons, led by enthusiastic band creator Nick Wheeldon with a mission to resurrect the sixties in sonic form. Specifically, the group are after that lovely overlap between psychedelic guitars and organs, folky songcraft, and symphonic sweep. Mourning Waltz is released by Requiem Pour Un Twister.

Technical Space Composer's Crew
Canaxis 5

Back in the early days of Can, Holger Czukay was involved in a some other groups while also playing in the band. One was the Technical Space Composer’s Crew, a project with Rolf Dammers that was inspired by Czukay’s studies with Karlheinz Stockhausen. Originally released in 1969 - the same year as Can’s debut LP Monster Movie - Canaxis 5 sees the duo expand on the concrete techniques of Stockhausen. Strange radio incantations and static interference flit around Czukay’s bass playing on this eerie record.

Holger Czukay
Movies

Holger Czukay's classic solo LP Movies from 1979 gets a timely reissue from Grönland and it's a lovely, crisp re-press of the remastered edition the label graced us with two years ago. A future-jazz masterpiece, the record includes the wonderful 'Cool In The Pool' (very welcome!) and the experimental pop-with-synth-workout 'Oh Lord Give Us More Money'. Czukay channels the funk of Chic and the cool of Steely Dan; 'Persian Love' yearns forlornly and the fifteen-minute-plus 'Hollywood Symphony' rollicks along over a rubbery, unstoppable groove.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Holger Czukay, Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebezeit
Full Circle

Originally dropped in 1982, this meeting of minds now gets a reissue courtesy of Grönland. The minds behind Full Circle would have been quite the super-group at the time of the initial release - Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit were on hiatus from Can, and Jah Wobble had only recently left Public Image Ltd. As one might expect, this is an upstart mixture of Krautrock, dub and groove-punk. Good clean fun.

Crystal Jacqueline
Live

A live album comprising an unauthorised bootleg from Sonic Rock Solstice Festival 2017, since reclaimed and cleaned up by Jacqueline Crystal and Icarus Peel themselves. Now fit for official release via the band’s frequent collaborators Mega Dodo, it’s a chance to hear their psych-folk ballads in a more raw and vulnerable setting.

Dunbarrow
Dunbarrow II

RidingEasy (Here Lies Man, Monolord) drop the second LP from Norwegian metalheads Dunbarrow. Dunbarrow II features some cuts of hard rock very much of the Black Sabbath school. Singer Espen Andersen’s Ozzy impression is uncanny at times, and the rest of the group serve up riffs aplenty across the record’s nine tracks.

Flamingods
Kewali Remixed EP

Flamingods follow-up 2017’s Kewali EP with a selection of remixes for the impressive Byrd Out (Andrew Weatherall, Mad Professor, Mosca). Kewali Remixed is a nice and varied triple-threat. Vanishing Twin run with the frenzied psychedelia of the Flamingods sound on their flip of ‘Bhima’, Richard Norris turns in a cosmic bit of acid-disco, and the title track is slowed down to a Balearic lilt by Stealing Sheep.

The Holydrug Couple
Hyper Super Mega

Chilean psychsters The Holydrug Couple return to Sacred Bones for their third LP on the esteemed indie imprint. The band have said all the right things in the run-up to Hyper Super Mega, talking us through their frustration with capitalism and their despair at the oncoming ecological apocalypse as well as name-checking The Beatles and The Beach Boys. This eleven-track record backs up what they've said thus far. All in all it’s quite a bit like Tame Impala.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Stoned Jesus
Pilgrims

Napalm Records (Skindred, Alestorm) release the fourth LP from Ukrainian group Stoned Jesus. If it wasn’t apparent from their name, this band deal primarily in stoner rock and they’re definitely very pleased that Pilgrims’ second track clocks in at exactly 4:20. Stoned Jesus’ sound is not as skull-shaking as genre titans like Sleep. A lot of their music is relatively lean by the conventions of the genre - moments here could pass for Deftones.

Kevin Ayers - John Cale - Eno - Nico
June 1, 1974

Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about to release, their own albums. It happened, as the title suggests, on June 1, 1974. The album features some key performances from Cale, Eno and Nico on side one, whilst side two is entirely performed by Kevin Ayers. As an additional garnish to the already stellar cast, Mike Oldfield plays bass and Robert Wyatt plays drums. Limited edition reissue of 1000 copies on Island.

The Primals
All Love Is True Love

The Primals sound exciting. They feature members of Darkest Hour, Dead to Fall and the Explosion and are said to be bringing back the visceral thrill of grunge. Their thrilled record label Southern Lord suggest that fans of Wand, Ty Segall, Nirvana, and Pixies may want to take especially keen interest.

The Myrrors
Fuzz Club Session

The Myrrors got their name by putting the word ‘Mirror’ into an online psychedelic band name generator and pluralising it….or so I heard, anyway. The Arizona band, whose sound evokes the desert landscape they call home mixed with Eastern psychedelic rock and expansive instrumentation that includes violins and droned vocals have recorded a three track session for London’s Fuzz Club label. The label are big fans of the band, so invited them over. And Fuzz Club just know. 180g vinyl LP on Fuzz Club.

Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters
Come & Chutney

From their name, their album title and the fact that Come & Chutney is released on ‘slurry brown’ vinyl, it’s safe to say that the three blokes behind Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters like to laugh. But did you also know that they like to fuzz? They fuzz hard on this LP, recalling Weedeater but with a little more spring in their step. Out on Riff Rock, which is less a label name than a description of what's to come.

Popera Cosmic
Les Esclaves

Well looky what Finders Keepers have unearthed now: it's only a super-rare classic French psych album! The original 1969 pressing of Popera Cosmic's only LP 'Les Esclaves' (The Slaves) was deleted long ago and fetches silly money regularly enough on-line. Talking of which, it's probably the first record made to now feature in all 3 of Discogs' Rock, Pop and Classical main genre categories. Although that'll need to be fact checked. Anyway, it's a rock-street-theatre-opera, no less and is more than likely ace and at the very least, interesting.

Convenanza 2018

Are you ready to get really, really psyche-d? In various ways? Well, the artists on the latest compilation from Swedish label Höga Nord hope so. It's Convenanza 2018, after the festival of the same name. It's a pretty varied collection of artists to reflect the fun times; they include: electro supremos Woodleigh Research Facility (Weatherall & Walsh); Glasgow's Komodo Kollektif; the garage psych of The Limiñanas, and more!

The Oscillation
U.E.F

Famed world over [citation needed] as both psychlords and punks, it's good to see Demian Castellanos' band The Oscillation back in business. It's their fifth LP and you better believe it when we tell you it comprises two songs, twenty minutes each, leaning in on Castellanos' solo approach to electronica and kosmische. Less groove, more groan, as U.E.F. takes his band to challenging new places.

Sungod
Wave Refraction

Texan label HoloDeck (Marie Davidson, Dylan Cameron) present an LP of freakiness, deakiness and various other -eekinesses from Sungod. Wave Refraction is at that nexus of psych-rock, prog and electro-rock that The Flaming Lips sometimes get close to. That said, where Wayne Coyne et al tend to reign in their Pink Floyd-isms with a deference to songcraft, Sungod head gleefully to the outer-reaches of sound. Cosmic.

Steve Marriott
Get Down To It

This long awaited career spanning anthology from the late Small Faces leader Steve Marriott contains three decades worth of rarities, unreleased stuff and live recordings. Compiled by the guy who runs the Small Faces fan club this is a treasure trove of rarities perfect for a Sunday Afternoon etc (oh dear). 

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
If I Love You

12” vinyl re-issue of If I Love You?, an EP released by the legendary Brian Jonestown Massacre back in 2001. A seven-track collection, it acted as a bit of a clearing house. The first three tracks on side one are version of songs from Bravery, Repetition & Noise, while the second side houses unused tracks that date right back to the band’s origins in the early Nineties.

OGOD (Over-Gain Optimal Death)
More Hearing

Some abbreviations are so obscure they need their own parenthesized definition in the same sentence to be understandable, which to me has always seemed a bit excessive. OGOD (Over-Gain Optimal Death) is one of those, but then again they also forewent the demands of grammar in addition to those of concise writing. More Hearing brings more of the noisy hardcore that we’ve come to expect from these prolific Californians. Lots of mids and highs on this one. All in all NB (not bad).

Spacemen 3
Forged Prescriptions

Spacemen 3’s 1987 LP The Perfect Prescription is rightly showered with praise to this day. The band were in a purple patch at the time they made their sophomore full-length, and new compilation Forged Prescriptions shows just how many great ideas the Spacemen had floating around at the time. This set of demos, alternate versions and previously-unreleased material is a great window on to how one of the all-time great psychedelic rock bands went about their business.

Kikagaku Moyo
House In The Tall Grass

Kikagaku Moyo Soul have learned all the lessons of the Japanese krautrock bands and the 70’s psych-rock bands, while also accommodating the sitar of Indian classical tradition. The results are a beautiful heady brew of inventive psychadelia, with its textures all soft and fuzzy around the edges. House In The Tall Grass is out on Japan’s Guruguru Brain label.

The Black Angels
Clear Lake Forest

Previously only available on limited 10" for RSD, features 7 entirely new tracks.  It follows their album Indigo Meadow (2013) where once again The Black Angels proved themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock. “Imagine tossing bands from the pantheon of American psychedelia like The Electric Prunes, Count Five, 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds into your blender, adding a splash of Sabbath and a dollop of early Soundgarden or Mudhoney, and you’ve got Austin’s The Black Angels.” - Associated Press.

Bernard Estardy
Space Oddities 1970-1982

Bernard Estardy had one of the most influential careers in French pop. From his studio the late producer helped shape the sounds of artists including Francoise Hardy and Claude Francois. As well as working behind the scenes for singers he was always tinkering at the controls and made many solo records of experimental Library pop throughout the second half of the 20th Century. Space Oddities 1970-1982 sees Born Bad Records (La Femme, Francis Bebey) collate a few choice nuggets from Estardy’s extensive body of oddities.

Psychic Lemon
Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay

Psychic Lemon are, in fact, a spacey psych-rock band, beloved of the infinite sprawl of the cosmos / guitar effects pedals. Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay (see if you can spot each one as they come up!) was recorded in a home studio by a newly leaner three-piece line-up, though the sound remains jumbo sized. Vinyl release from Tonzonen Records.

Expo 70
Mother Universe Has Birthed Her Last Cosmos

Title-track Mother Universe Has Birthed her Last Cosmos will is set to drag you to other places with incessant, endlessly deep drones, constantly evolving and shifting.

D.R. Hooker
The Truth

So similar in name to Dr Hook but don't be alarmed this is something completely different. It has been voted one of the rarest records of all time and was released in an edition of less than a hundred back in 1972. D.R. Hooker was in fact a robe-clad hippy who wrote surprisingly sophisticated songs that have something of the Randy Newman about them.

Amon Duul II
Hijack

Hijack by Amon Duul II is one of their underappreciated classics. They  were famed for such classics of psychedelia and krautrock as 1969's Phallus Dei and 1971's Tanz Der Lemminge. It could be said that they stretched the boundaries of their genre here adding some funky brass, chamber pop strings and samba beats. Ripe for rediscovery! Reissue LP on 8th Records.

Try A Little Sunshine - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1969

The high tide of psychedelic music may have happened some two years previously, but by 1969 the scene had become more fragmented: either chart-orientated, manufactured 'bubblegum' pop or it had mutated into heavier, 'serious' rock. The British wave incorporated more eclectic sounds, so 'Sunshine' Psych was born, as heard on new Grapefruit compilation Try A Little Sunshine - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1969, encompassing 4 hours of tunes from a diverse, colourful and eventful decade end.

Winter & Triptides
Estrela Mágica

Winter & Triptides are a two-part collaboration, and those happy souls you see on the front cover spent the last two years (on and off), recording the material for Estrela Mágica at home. Sunshine psych-guitar-pop mixes with Tropicalia flavours, resulting in music that will make you feel good as it bounces brightly along. Mágica indeed.

Odeon
Galaxies

Captain’s log, star date 2018-02. We’ve received a transmission from the four-person crew of the vessel Odeon, in the Edizioni Mundo sector. Title Galaxies, it appears to be a series of immaculate references to psychedelic 1970s Italian film soundtracks and 1980s synthpop. It is clearly the work of some serious connoisseurs. We are not yet sure what this fabulous space music means, but we like it.

A Kaleidoscope Of Sounds (Psychedelic & Freakbeat Masterpieces)

A Kaleidoscope Of Sounds (Psychedelic & Freakbeat Masterpieces) is a box set of 7 obscure 7” singles that collectors have been searching and paying ridiculous sums of money for since the ‘60s. The set has been compiled by Phil Smee. It is reckoned that buying the original versions of these singles could set you back the best part of twelve grand! Hmmm….buy this instead. Artists include: Caleb, Fleur De Lys, Kaleidoscope, The Wimple Witch and The Longboatmen.

Alexander Tucker
Don't Look Away

Don’t Look Away completes the trio of LPs that the Grumbling Fur's Alexander Tucker started with 2011’s Dorwytch. It’s a record of whimsical, finely-crafted, Brian Eno-esque pop. Factory Floor's Nik Void guests on the hypnotic, droning 'Gloops Void (Give It Up)'. This one's out via Thrill Jockey.

The Telescopes
Stone Tape

6 more tracks of distorted noise and out there shoegaze from Stephen Lawrie's now pretty legendary thirty year old project. This time it's a bunch of racket and improvisation exploring 'Stone Tape Theory whereby inanimate objects can absorb energy from living beings. 'Scuse me while I go shout at my sausages.  

Objeto
Micromundos

Combing the whole world for electronic sounds, Polytechnic Youth has now turned to Spain for this project from Jordi Navarra who blends space rock and primitive electronic sounds. Here he concentrates on simple electronic pieces that reference Hans-Joachim Roedelius but also have some pretty severe nods towards post punk and minimal wave.

Me and My Kites
Is it Real or is it Made?

Second album from Me and My Kites, a flighty collection of songs that breeze past the listener so laden with summer that you could catch hayfever. Is It Real Or Is It Made? was recorded in Norway, and there is, from time to time, an audibly Scandinavian touch to the vocals. LP released by Porcelain Records.

Warmduscher
Whale City

Warmduscher is various London people hanging out and recording something they feel is Really Important no doubt aided and abetted by a truckload of cocaine. They contain members of the Fat White Family and Insecure Men and this debut full length has been described as a rock opera that could send you into outer space. For fans of S.M.A.S.H etc. 

Hookworms
Pearl Mystic

This is the 'classic' debut album Leeds psych man band Hookworms. They purvey a kind of heads down, no nonsense kraut boogie which borrows as much from Neu '3' as it does Status Quo 'On the Level'. Moving way into the modern age, it's the kind of album no Spacemen 3 fan should be without. Heavy psych wibbling for all the family.
