Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the album art but I hope the baby's okay. 
  • 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.

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.

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

Drone master Justin Wright, also known as Expo 70, is treating us to some old hard-to-find cassette drones: Woolgather Visions and Mechanical Elements. 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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

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

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.

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.  

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.

Lumerians
Call Of The Void

The Void has clearly called up Lumerians and just told ‘em to keep on doing what they’re doing, man. The Californian space-rockers have heeded said Call Of The Void and turned in another psychedelic smorgasbord, this time getting the people at Fuzz Club (King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Night Beats) to do the heavy lifting. Krautrock, free jazz, drone, Zamrock - they’re all neatly assimilated into this stylishly unkempt LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Vuelveteloca
Sonora

As a life long fan of Bolivian psych-rock, I was naturally sceptical of Vuelveteloca, the supposed legends of Chilean psych-rock. Yet here they are, on Fuzz Club Records with their fifth album Sonora, smashing the doomiest, most stoned rock together with the hyper connectivity of a heavy metal Kraftwerk operating suicidal seventies super-computers. And their last album was called Pantera. Cool!
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Ved
Omikron

Ved is a vast, ever changing musical collective which began as a solo project for Mattias Nihlén. As you probably guessed from ‘collective’, on Omikron the group make a varied prog rock that borrows from electronic music, German kosmische sounds and the stranger reference points of Surf and Looney Tunes cartoons.

Les Big Byrd
A Little More Numb

Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (Thee MVP’s, Beach Skulls) drop - surprise, surprise - a new psych-rock record. This one is a 7” that comes courtesy of Les Big Byrd, an old friend of the label. Both tunes on A Little More Numb are the more of the sort of pleasant Krauty psychedelia that characterised last year's ‘Two Man Gang’ single for PNKSLM. Only 400 copies available.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spectrum
Highs, Lows, and Heavenly Blows

That title is just … wow. Ok. Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows (hi mum) originally dropped in 1994 and now gets a reissue via Medical Records (Pram, Martin Jenkins). The main protagonist in Spectrum is ex-Spacemen 3 member Sonic Boom, and the influence of that group’s gnarled psychedelic fantasia is very much on display here. These trippy soundscapes meet in the middle of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Orb and Screamadelica-era Primal Scream.

Animal Collective
Tangerine Reef

2018 is the International Year of the Reef, a project which aims to bring attention to the beauty of our friends beneath the waves as well as the massive amount of harm humanity has caused them. To commemorate it Animal Collective will produce their second audiovisual album Tangerine Reef (the first was ODDSAC) in collaboration with Coral Morphologic. It's an obvious pairing, coral reefs are colourful, psychedelic, and most importantly, animals.

Yawning Man
The Revolt Against Tired Noises

Active for over thirty years, Palm Desert, California-based stoner rock trio Yawning Man didn’t begin releasing albums till 2005. So here’s just their sixth full-length, boasting a beautiful cover painting of a rather formidable rabbit and chock-full of thick, mainly instrumental melodic scuzz. When vocals do appear they’re on songs such as ‘Catamaran’, a new version of an old favourite covered by KYUSS as far back as ‘95.

Samara Lubelski
Flickers At The Station

Samara Lubelski is an experimental musician with plenty of credentials in the world of avant-garde improvisation and suchlike, but here on Flickers At The Station she brings her musicianship and songwriting into the service of highly listenable psychedelic pop music, with the kind of lush mystique of some of the best sixties beat combos. LP on Drawing Room Records.

Genesis
Nursery Cryme

Nursery Crime was the third Genesis album and was originally released in 1971. It was notable for being the first to feature guitarist Steve Hackett and some drummer bloke named Phil Collins. Their inclusion completed what many fans believe to be the classic Genesis line-up. 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Heron Oblivion
Heron Oblivion

Heron Oblivion are a new group, assembled from members of a remarkable selection of bands: Comets On Fire, Howlin’ Rain and Six Organs Of Admittance are all represented, and Meg Baird leads the proceedings. This self-titled debut has a classic 60’s psychedelic sound, Baird’s voice setting the tone.

Drug Cult
Drug Cult

Debut outing from members of Sun Of Man and Megaritual under their new guise - Drug Cult. Hazy and very very heavy indeed, this is a huge dose of psychedelics through an Electric Wizard filter. Fuzzed riffs that is a must for fans of Baba Naga and the likes. CD, LP and Limited Deluxe CD on ritual Productions.

Various
The Self Preservation Society

Throwback artisans ECC Records have spent three years curating this compilation. They’ve taken standards from The Best Era For Music - ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’, ‘White Rabbit’, ‘Kashmir’ and so forth - and got a load of young pretenders to ‘update them’, so to speak. The result is thirty-four tracks that’ll please your uncle. Comes in a nice triple-gatefold package.

The Vryll Society
Course Of The Satellite

Look past the achingly old-school cover art of Course Of The Satellite and you’ll find brand new Liverpool indie, delivered by The Vryll Society. A little bit psychy, a little bit jangly, and all produced with a tight tuneful sheen, this is sure to be heard more and more in the world. It does have a song named ‘Andrei Rublev’ though, which is good. Out on Deltasonic.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Carl Weingarten
Living In The Distant Present

Carl Weingarten is a long underrated ambient slide guitarist. Hopefully, this reissue of his 1985 album, Living in The Distant Present, can change that. His music is deeply meditative, and will be comfortingly familiar to fans of new age music. Most impressively, Weingarten manages to find the ambient slide guitar equivalent of shredding. 

Negro
Clase media

Valencia’s Fernando Junquera, performing as Negro, is a solo guitarist whose mastery of his instrument allows his music to smoothly encompass a world of sounds, from American primitive to Tortoise-tinged post-rock to deep Loren Connors style ambience. Clase media is the third Negro solo album, and it is out on the La Castanya label.

Benny Trokan
Gone / Turn Back You Fool

Gone/Turn Back is Benny Trokan’s first solo outing. He has previously played bass with The Jay Vons, Reigning Sound and Lee Field’s Expressions. Here he offers up two songs, one an electric twelve-string led west coast psych strummer and one that’s is more difficult to pin down to one genre, but is delivered with a raw ‘60s teen beat swagger. 7” single on Wick.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Funkadelic
Finest

Probably the greatest compilation of George Clinton’s iconic funk ensemble Funkadelic, Finest covers 1970 to 1976 and mixes classics with obscurities. Tidal Waves Music have repressed this out of print rarity to very limited deluxe double vinyl LP, complete with the original psychedelic artwork.

O’Seis
Suicida / Apocalipse

No, this isn’t the latest incarnation of (Thee) Oh Sees. In fact, it’s a previous incarnation of Os Mutantes. Three of those who would go on to form OM - Rita Lee and the Baptista brothers - were members of O’Seis. 1966 single Suicida/Apocalipse was the group's only release, but both tracks fizz with energy and spark. Neatly prefaces the tropicalia/psych-rock explosion that OM would spearhead a few years later.

Gulp
All Good Wishes

Gulp are comprised of Super Furry Animals Guto Pryce alongside Lindsey Leven and Gid Goundrey and have become rather expert at making psychedelic mini kraut gems which have a certain pop nous to them that recalls both their parent band and the likes of Stereolab. The band have an inventive and free flowing way of making music that ensure that they blend disparate influences into a sound all their own.  

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Key

Pushing through a curtain of archival reissues, here comes brand new work from the legendary synth-lords Tangerine Dream! The current, post-Froese line-up of the band have worked up some suitably epic and soulful electronic odysseys that should more than satisfy the Dream’s many devotees. Quantum Key is released on Invisible Hands Music.

OHHMS
Exist

OOHMS are here with their second album which should be a right favourite in our office.  They make heavy heavy prog with nods way back to the '70s likes of Pink Floyd and the Soft Machine and the more bang up to date the Mars Volta. Tin hat time for those too fainthearted for wiggly, wibbly progressive rock. 

Pink Floyd
A Foot In The Door (The Best Of Pink Floyd)

A rather strange 'best of' Pink Floyd that veers around their career including all their big hits and classic songs and a few lesser known album tracks as well. This has been long out of print and has now been remastered 2018 style. If you are at all curious as to what the fuss was about then this is a good place to quickly get a grip on their career.

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)
Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!)

Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) by Koolaid (Holy Sunshine!) (some may know them as Koolaid, others may know them as Holy Sunshine!) is your true hippie go-to should you wish to relive your younger days as a progressive peace promoter. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and is released on K.Ultrax. 

Ulver
Shadows Of The Sun

Norse experimentalists Ulver rose to prominence as one of the most significant founding black metal acts of Scandinavia, before compounding their sound into traditional folk and industrial metal. With Shadows of the Sun, they were reincarnated as the electronica act they're now known as 

Various
Brown Acid: The Third Trip

Named after a bad batch of LSD that circulated at 1969's Woodstock Festival, Brown Acid: The Third Trip is the third in a series of critically acclaimed compilation albums by RidingEasy records. Featuring rare/unreleased tracks from bands like Factory, Grand Theft and Chook, this Vinyl LP is a unique journey through a world of hard-hitting psychadelic rock and metal.

Crimen
Silent Animals

The latest freaky tome to be released by Fuzz Club is the debut LP by Italian trio Crimen. Despite Silent Animals being their first crack at a full-length the group have been together over a decade at this point, and the well-worn chemistry between the three of them is a boon for the band. Music-wise we veer between poles of Wooden Shjips-y slinks (‘Flahzz’) and electro-punk-tinged garage-rock numbers (‘Six Weeks’).

Ultra Satan
Freedom Rock / Anti-Clock

Gothenburg’s Höga Nord Rekords (Andrew Weatherall, Dungeon Acid) drop their second 7” by Ultra Satan. The follow-up to ‘USA’/‘USB’ sees the maverick artist streamline his approach without losing any of his potency. It’s still cosmic, psychedelic post-Kraut, but this is more kinetic and propulsive. It’s thrilling for it, too - ‘Anti-Clock’ sounds like the very best bits of David Byrne and Brian Eno’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Hanterhir
The Saving Of Cadan

Hanterhir is by all accounts a massive project of musicians, oddballs and hangers-on, who hung out together in the deep Cornish countryside to make this outsized record. The Saving Of Cadan was a mammoth undertaking which brings together strands of freak rock, post-punk, hip-hop, electronica, psych-folk and more in the cohesive yet sprawling smorgasbord spanning 3 LPs or 2 CDs. From those equally expansive folk at Easy Action records.

The Butterfield Blues Band
East-West

Paul Butterfield put the blues into blues harp. In the ‘60s, if you wanted harmonica-led blues music, then you listened to The Butterfield Blues Band. The US combo first made their mark in 1963, but it was their 1966 LP East-West that really caught people’s ears. The band featured guitarist Mike Bloomfield, who has also played with some singer/songwriter called Bob Dylan. Jerome Arnold played bass - his blues credentials stand up to some scrutiny having also played with Howlin’ Wolf as do the credentials for drummer Billy Davenport who can claim to have played with Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Otis Rush. 180g LP on Music On Vinyl.

Cosmic Invention
Help Your Satori Mind

Masaki Batoh was more than a decade deep into his time with Ghost when he formed Cosmic Invention. Intended as a fun and carefree endeavour to contrast with the intensity of his commitments with Ghost, Batoh and his group made one LP, 1997’s Help Your Satori Mind. More than twenty years on and Drag City are issuing the album on wax for the first time. It’s a nice hybrid of classic psych- and hard-rock styles - the guitar parts on ‘Blue Link Sky Was Falling’ are particularly lovely. This re-release also marks the first time that ‘Long Jamming’ has appeared on the record.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Kano
Runes

The first thing to say about this is that it’s not by the grime legend Kano. In fact, Runes is about as far away from ‘P’s And Q’s’ as it’s possible to get. Originally released in 1986 under the names of both Kano and Don Campbell - again, nothing to do with the Lover’s Rock singer - Runes is a spare, haunting record that teeters on the border between New Age music and ritual/dark ambient. Re-released by Subliminal Sounds.

Various
Static Fruit

Fruits de Mer and Static Caravan are two boutique labels with long-term vision and a deep engagement with their chosen fields of music. Here they share wax for the first time, each putting forward two acts: Art Of The Memory Palace and Cheval Sombre from the Caravan, Jack Ellister and The Insektlife Cycle from the Fruits. 7” of Static Fruit!

Earth Girl Helen Brown
Four Satellites Vol. 1

Four Satellites comprises of selected tracks from Earth Girl Helen Brown’s four EPs released through Empty Cellar Records through 2017 and 2018, each one named and themed by the planets Mars, Saturn, Venus and mercury. The ludicrous lineup of collaborators for this project includes Bart Davenport, Ty Segall, Tim Cohen and many others.

Us and Them
When I Was Walking

Having put out a lilting psychish-folkish album with Mega Dodo Records in 2015, Swedish duo Us and Them return to the label with a lilting psychish-folkish double-A. I’m going to take a punt and guess that they’ve lifted their name from the Pink Floyd song. 7”. Sleeves are hand-numbered so it’s a good job they’re only making 150 of them because any more would likely mean cramping for the numberer in question.

Thousand Foot Whale Claw
Black Hole Party

While it may be based in the heart of Texas, there’s neither much yee- nor -haw! to the releases of Holodeck Records. Indeed, the Austin label tends towards 80s-flavoured techno and synthwave tracks from the likes of Marie Davidson and S U R V I V E. They stick to their guns on the latest LP from Holodeck inner-circle members Thousand Foot Whale Claw. Black Hole Party is a record of retro thrills that wouldn’t sound out place soundtracking a scene from Stranger Things.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Hontatedori
Konata Kanata

Hontatedori is comprised of Tokyo-based musical trio Taku Unami, Moé Kamura and Tetuzi Akiyama. Although certainly recognised as individual performers of some stature, ‘Konata Kanata’ is nevertheless their sophomore album following 2013's self-titled debut LP. The record generously gives us more of Kamura's endearingly fragile voice, planted between the twin crystalline sound-worlds of Unami and Akiyama's explorative guitars. Around the edges of the tapestry you might discover a fringe thread of subtle funk, chilled psychedelia or refracted film score. LP only, on the Blue Chopsticks label; David Grubbs' Drag City affiliate.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Electric Ladyland

Hendrix on 180 gram! Yes, you heard correctly. This double LP vinyl package has been lovingly put together by the Voodoo Chile's down at Legacy. You don't want to get stuck in Cross Town Traffic and miss this one. You don't need even need to go All Along The Watch Tower, but you do need to snap it up quickly. It's Jimi, it's Electric Ladyland - what more can I say baby?
  • Genre(s):

Weeed
This

Now This is more like it. Portland’s Weeed return with another dispatch of long-form Black Sabbath worship. Four lengthy jams on this LP which combine all manner of stonerisms - psych, Kraut, noise, metal, even a little gnawa - without ever bringing things on too heavy. Plenty of fun to be had here, especially if you like Goat, Wooden Shjips and so on.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Big Blood
Operate Spaceship Earth Properly

Psych/folk crackpots Big Blood return with Operate Spaceship Earth Properly. Thematically it explores science fact and fiction, and the blurring in between. Imagine the ‘70s acid folk of Comus combined with some heavy riffage, then send that to planet weirdo and you’re part way there. LP on Feeding Tube Records.

You Said Strange
Salvation Prayer

We didn’t actually, but that’s fine. You Said Strange, the newest paid-up members of the Fuzz Club, cut their debut LP with Dandy Warhol Peter Holmström after the bands toured together back in 2015. No prizes for guessing who Salvation Prayer sounds like. Fortunately for you it’s about time we had some more Dandies in our lives.

The Rolling Stones
Their Satanic Majesties Request - 50th Anniversary Edition

Following the hullabaloo about the 50th Anniversary edition of the Beatles 'Sgt Pepper's...' we now get a bespoke four disc re-vamp of their great rivals the Rolling Stones similarly ambitious Their Satanic Majesties Request. This was the album in which they experimented with psychedelia, sound effects and unconventional song structures. Bonkers and groundbreaking. 

Bart De Paepe
Pagus Wasiae

Bart De Paepe’s debut album for Belgian label Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, Pagus Wasiae, channels Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Taj Mahal Travellers and the most ethereal works of Pink Floyd. His dynamic use of synths, guitars and understated beats creates an album that you can wrap yourself up in and forget about the world outside. LP on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Sun Araw
Guarda In Alto (The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Sun Araw, king of the deep-space psych-dub herbal drone, turns his lysergic attentions to the film Guarda In Alto, a parallel-universe fantasia directed by Fulvio Risuleo. Here we get large dose of avant-house and computer music as well as our usually scheduled Araw programming, with great success. Guarda In Alto stretches luxuriantly across three sides of vinyl (with an etching on the fourth), or a CD.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Don’t Get Lost

After several enticing preview singles, the world now gets to enjoy the sixteenth album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in full. Don’t Get Lost is the band’s Berlin album, and it mixes their classic psych-clatter sound with elements of jazz and post-punk, with help from guests like Tim Burgess from The Charlatans and Emil Nikolaisen from Serena-Maneesh. CD and double yellow vinyl LP editions on Anton Newcombe’s own ‘a’ Recordings imprint.

The Goa Express
Goa / Kiss Me

Toot toot! All aboard The Goa Express! Now leaving for Sixtiesrevivalville, USA.   Actually, they’re not from the USA. They’re from Burnley. Reminds me of that Arctic Monkeys song about Rotherham. Anyway, if you like your tubs thumping, your guitars fuzzing and your drawls drawling then you’ll find plenty to like about this blue vinyl.

White Manna
Pan

White Manna are fuzzing out again! Time to dive into Pan, their newest record, filled with distorted psych rock. Mixed by Phil Manley, the album is packed with raw energy. Cruise through the ancient forest of Northern California while sounds distort into colors and light. Released on vinyl in a bunch of colors!

Frank Zappa
Chunga's Revenge

A typically straight-laced affair from Frank Zappa here. First pressed in 1970, Chunga’s Revenge marks the beardy weirdy’s first album with a Mothers Of Invention lineup that included former Turtles Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. Musically it’s … well, it’s Frank Zappa, so it’s more a case of bands sounding like him rather than the other way round. This reissue is the first vinyl release of the LP for three decades.

Culto Al Qondor
Templos

After a brief stint in the mid-2000s under the name Qondor, members of Peruvian psych-rock groups La Ira de Dios and Serpentina Satelite reform as Culto al Qondor and drop an LP on Drone Rock Records (GNOB, Stupid Cosmonaut). Templos contains four lengthy exercises in drone rock (who’d have thought, eh?) and rhythm-driven psych. It’s a cut above your average delays-and-drums affair - the beat work particularly interesting, bringing to mind a  combination of Neu! and Cankun.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Goat
Goatfuzz / Goatfizz

A special edit of Goatfuzz, a key track from recent album Requiem, here specially tooled for maximum effect as a single and paired with a new and exclusive number called Goatfizz. Which makes for a very appealingly titled 7” altogether. Goat are as madcap as every here, so jump on board! Vinyl only, limited to 2000 copies.

Trickster Blues

The 2017 debut LP from RF Shannon gets a UK release via Fuzz Club (Sonic Jesus, The Underground Youth). Band leader Shane Renfro has come up with eight evocative psych-pop cuts for Trickster Blues which will appeal to those of a Tame Impala/Whitney disposition. The songs are expertly crafted and nicely captured. Perfect summertime listening.

The Valkarys
Since I Was Fifteen

The Valkarys are part of an ever-growing quantity of psyched-up garagey rock bands, a style they do very well at. But what is more individual about them is their audible fondness for the sounds and styles of desert-USA as imagined by Westerns. This is what gives the Since I Was Fifteen EP a real flavour of its own. 10” vinyl release, pressed onto orange wax.

The Junkyard Liberty
Chains

Due for release on Friday 11th November, debut LP “Chains” comes in the form of a very limited edition transparent blood red vinyl. Released, aptly, into a political landscape of upheaval and unrest, “Chains”, with its provocative slant, is set to strike a chord with people the world over. The ten tracks, whose retro riffs hark back to the likes of the Velvet Underground, will not disappoint.

Blown Out
Sun Rot

Blown Out fans, here’s a chance to reacquaint yourselves with the band’s origins: Sun Rot, their first ever release, is now getting a vinyl reissue, four years and three sold-out cassette runs since Sun Rot’s initial release. The band’s spacey music is already epic here, even through the early lo-fi edges that pleasingly colour the sound. Reissued by Riot Season.

Ray Barbee
Tiara For Computer

The Tiara For Computer, the latest LP from Ray Barbee, we find the skater, photographer and most importantly (for our purposes) musician playing around with synths. Along with a band including John Herndon (Tortoise) Barbee has created a weird, fun record that skirts between instrumental synth-pop, Krauty-psych and slightly techy, slightly Afro-funky workouts. Think The Physics House Band, Battles, Zammuto, that sort of thing.

Heldon
Third

The third album from French psychedelic rockers, Heldon reissued by Bureau B. Here you'll find two discs (CD or vinyl) of long, dark jams, all heavy on the guitar and synth. On the album Heldon ringleader Richard Pinhas is quoted as saying "dark is not negative to me". No dark without light! Upwards, to space!

The 4th Movement
The 4th Movement

The recent revival of interest in 1970s Detroit proto-punk trio Death has lead to a re-release for an album the brothers Hackney made under the name The 4th Movement. Originally self-distributed in 1980, The 4th Movement sees the group retain the fuzzed hard-rock sound of Death but narrow their lyrical focus to one thing - our saviour Jesus Christ. This new pressing comes courtesy of Drag City.

Wargirl
Arbolita

New Cali group Wargirl debut with an impressive five-track EP. Arbolita is a tremendous New-Wave record that blends a classic punk energy with dub, Motown, disco, psych-rock and other sounds. Blondie, The Slits and The B-52’s all spring to mind - in particular ‘Little Girl’ sounds like a nu-school take on a cut from Parallel Lines.

Tobias Petersson
Amon Duul II and the Birth of Krautrock 1968-1972

If you’re a fan of Krautrock you no doubt can wax lyrical about its heavy germanic electronic brilliance. Amon Düül II were at the forefront of the movement, and this book from Tobias Peterson contains everything you need to know about the band and the sound that could only have been birthed in a German still divided by Cold War tension and misery. Hardcover book, 160 pages.

Frank Zappa / The Mothers Of Invention
Burnt Weeny Sandwich

Often closer to idiot than genius on the genius/idiot spectrum, Frank Zappa nonetheless had both an incredible moustache and a career which spanned all kinds of styles and mediums. This 1970 album has been lovingly restored by the Zappa family trust who are slowly re-issuing his large and sprawling back catalogue. At the time of release the album was actually a posthumous Mothers of Invention record after Zappa dissolved the band and is comprised of studio and live elements.

Witch
Introduction

The debut album from 1970s Zamrockers WITCH or We Intend To Cause Havoc!, arguably the masters of the Zambian rock movement that has been gathering new attention since Now-Again records have been steadily reissuing some of the genre’s classics. Introduction is just that, a good introduction to the Zamrock sound which blends the psychedelic guitar of Hendrix with the funk groove of James Brown and an African rhythm. A joyous and exciting record from a fantastic group of musicians.

Günter Schickert
Labyrinth

Günter Schickert is a livelong traveller in cosmic experimental music, having woven entrancing soundscapes out of echo-laden guitars, synthesizers and filters, and masses else over the years. Labyrinth is a collection of pieces from across the years, from 1996 to the present day, offering a brilliant summation of what Schickert has achieved. LP release from Marmo Music.

Lay Llamas
Thuban

Rocket darlings Lay Llamas continue to travel the planets in search of the grooviest freaksters baby. Thuban is a little more grounded, finding earthly rhythms from all over to celebrate and experiment with, doing the usual psychedelic hypnosis with a spoken word feature from the Pop Group's Mark Stewart. Well this is really living, eh?

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

Captured Tracks have gone and captured themselves another bunch of tracks from Australian songsmith Gabriella Cohen. The follow-up to her 2015 debut LP sees Cohen honing her craft and turning in some well-heeled indie-pop in the vein of labelmates Mac Demarco and Craft Spells. With songwriting this good, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love could well prove to be a big record for 2018.

ANMLPLNET
Fall Asleep

One of only a few bands this spring to sing about the tricky business of sex with clouds. ANMLPLNET is the duo of Leah Wellbaum and Mickey Vershbow, and Fall Asleep is what they managed to create while living on opposite coasts of the US. With its dream-diary lyrics, warm texture and emotive crescendos, the record falls somewhere between Americana, indie and dream pop.

The Third Sound
All Tomorrow’s Shadows

You’ve heard of All Tomorrow’s Parties. How about some of All Tomorrow’s Shadows? It’s the fourth album of The Third Sound, aka Hákon Aðalsteinsson, who is known from Singapore Sling and as a live member of Brian Jonestown Massacre. This LP has a bit of a vintage psych sound, with confident vocals and some strong kraut leanings to boot.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

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.

Bitchin Bajas
Bajas Fresh

Bitchin Bajas centre around guitarist and organist Cooper Crain, also of Chicago Psych/drone band Cave. In the 4 years since their last album, they have released collaborative efforts with Natural Information Society, Olivia Wyatt and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy.

FEWS
Means

This debut release from FEWS borrows the structures and experiments of post-punk, but replaces any brooding seriousness with a playful melodic sensibility. Means, on the Play It Again Sam label, is ten tracks of bold, exuberant and psychedelic guitar music made for both dancing and headphone appreciation.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
The Night Creeper

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats have built up a large reputation since their origins in 2009, going down particularly well in the USA. The Night Creeper finds them riffing more riffily than ever before, recalling classic early heavy metal. Available on CD or as a double LP, with a variety of colours sprinkled throughout the edition.

Eno / Moebius / Roedelius
After The Heat

Bureau B reissue the second collaborative LP between notable egghead Brian Eno and Cluster members Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius. After The Heat came out in 1978 and is very much representative of the gains both parties were making at the time. Eno’s newfound interest in ambient and incidental textures combines nicely with the German duo’s Krautrock-derived electronica.
