Soft Hearted Scientists
Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World

Some bug-eyed psych-folk from Wales here. Originally released in 2007, Soft Hearted Scientists’s Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World gets a timely reissue by You Are The Cosmos. The recent rise of Richard Dawson may owe something to this album, though SHS’s brand of British folk is far more day-glo and bushy-tailed. Sort of sounds like an LP Oliver Postgate might have made if he was into that sort of thing.

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.

Shimshon Miel
Amsterdam To Nueiba

Fortuna Records have unearthed another gem here. Tel Aviv-born hippie Shimshon Miel self-released his only LP in 1977. It was a strange experiment in psychedelia, full of drum circle percussion and floating chemtrails of guitar. Fortuna have repackaged two of the album’s cuts here as Amsterdam to Nueiba. They’ve also roped in Kalbata to soup up ‘Amsterdam Experience’ with a more DJ-friendly edit.

Mark McDowell and Friends
Dark Weave

Mark McDowell and Friends are a bunch of psychedelic folkers. Dark Weave combines ‘60s psych folk, drone and haunting ballads played on acoustic guitars, analogue synths and sitars. The globetrotting troupe recorded their fifth album in San Francisco, Bristol and Wales. Limited edition green vinyl LP on Friend Of The Fish.

Malena Zavala
Aliso

Slow, warm and bittersweet dream pop ditties are the stuff of Argentina-born, Britain-raised Malena Zavala’s debut album, and she writes, performs and produces them very well. There’s a very gentle mix of roots rock, Latin and singer-songwriter styles at work here, rendered in fuzzy, lo-fi production

Pink Floyd
Pulse

Weighty quadruple vinyl reissue of Floyd’s 1995 live set. You don’t get the blinking LED that graced the original CD, but that aspect of the release might prove to be less mind-bending 23 years on. You do get two and a half hours of competent, Waters-free renditions of the classics (including the entirety of Dark Side), and later non-classics.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Jonas Munk
Absorb / Fabric / Cascade

From one of Causa Sui’s finest, another solo release - Absorb / Fabric / Cascade is a three song 37-minute exploration into the world between drone and rock. Jonas Munk’s previous solo releases have proven this man’s capabilities, and we are eager to find out what his next step will be. There’s only 500 going around, so get your hands on your own quick!
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dreamweapon
SOL

Portuguese krautadelia band Dreamweapon (a single reference to Spacemen 3’s double-reference to Angus “Velvet Underground” MacLise and La Monte Young) return with SOL, a four-stage zone-out blowout recorded in a single take. You’ve got your phaser/delay combo on the guitar, your rattling, droning bass, huge reverb and, somewhere in the distance far below, a devoted drum kit tapping away.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Sugar Candy Mountain
Do Right

Oakland psych-poppers Sugar Candy Mountain drop their fourth LP via (Jeffrey Lewis, Karl Blau). Do Right features ten more of the woozy, 60s-flavoured jams which the group have shown a knack for crafting across their previous records. George Harrison’s solo material comes to mind, albeit rendered with a widescreen vision that is more akin to The Beach Boys.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

GUM
The Underdog

Tame Impala and Pond multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson (aka GUM) is back with his fourth album, a multi-genre romp through twinkling psychedelia, '70s soft rock, shimmering disco and playful electro. Snapshotting a day in his own life, this is an introspective album seasoned with touches of whimsy and sun-soaked synths. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dead Gurus
Acid Bench

The scorched-earth guitars, shrouded in psychedelia, of Dead Gurus are colossal. No release showcases their searing and screeching riffs more potently than the Wrong Way Records presented and drug-fuelled LP Acid Bench. Ladies and gentlemen, strap yourself in - its gonna be a bumpy ride...

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.2

A further archival dose of synthesizer sound from Klaus Schulze, the hyper-productive German maestro. La Vie Electronique Volume 1.2 is a double LP set of rare (and even unreleased) material from Schulze’s early 70’s period, showcasing that beautiful organic Moog-work style. 2LP on One Way Static.

Coypu
Floating

Coypu’s ensemble is made up of members of Blind Cave Salamander and Almagest!, Daniele Pagliero, and the ever-busy Ben Chasny, he of Six Organs Of Admittance fame. Together they make experimental pastoral American music: Appalachian dulcimers melding with droning electronics and psych guitar. Debut album on MIE Music.

From Beyond
The Band From Beyond

From Beyond trace their supernatural origin back to Houston, Texas. The spooky forest and neon text on the album’s cover art has an eerie, Twin Peaks-y atmosphere to it, while the early 90s hard rock style of the music also pulls off a sinister vibe with John Carpenter-esque keyboards and a lot of reverb on the lead vocals.

Can
Unlimited Edition

Mute brought back more Can than any krautrock fan could possibly handle with the 'Can Vinyl Box', which featured seventeen Can records reissued in one bundle; now each record is stepping out on its own. Originally released in 1976, 'Unlimited Edition' is a double record compilation of unreleased Can material from the late sixties and early seventies, documenting their very early years and showing off how they started to play music together. It features vocals from both original Can singer Malcolm Mooney and replacement Damo Suzuki.  Tracks: Gomorrha Doko E LH 702 I'm Too Leise Musette Blue Bag (Inside Paper) E.F.S. No. 27 TV Spot E.F.S No. 7 The Empress and the Ukraine King E.F.S. No. 10 Mother Upduff E.F.S. No. 36 Cutaway Connection Fall of Another Year E.F.S. No. 8 Transcendental Express Ibis

The Dwarfs of East Agouza
Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers

Don't they? Do we have proof of this? This remarkably titled album is the second album by this remarkably titled group which is a collaboration between Sir Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls), Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi. Recorded in Cairo it blends wild guitar parts, crazed beats and the warm sound of acoustic bass. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Gershon Kingsley & The Moog
Pop Corn


Mild High Club
Skiptracing

Mild High Club’s second album in just a year has a pleasing concept: the idea is that a private detective is on the trail of “the spirit of American music” circa the 1970’s. What he finds is Skiptracing, a cool suite of Californian groove and Steely Dan-esque jazz-inflected mellow-rock. A fun record on Stones Throw.

Girl Sweat Pleasure Temple Ritual Band
Hyper Rituals

A new one from the Leeds-local cosmic experience known as the Girl Sweat Pleasure Temple Ritual Band. If that's too many words, here's a few more: this psychedelic churn church make weird, sleazy drone pop sermons that think up and then actualise free jazz, noise and rhythm hypnosis. This is their first LP proper and we have Sheffield's Evil Hoodoo Records to thank for its fleshrealm existence.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Various
Brown Acid: The Sixth Trip

A mind-blowing, limited-edition, green vinyl compilation of obscure hard rock, psych and proto-metal from the 60s and 70s from the folks over at RidingEasy records. Dive into 10 deep cuts from bands across America and Canada, including Truth & Janey, Travis, Johnny Barnes and Zendik. A rare and totally badass collection. 

The Common Cold
Shut Up! Yo Liberals!

Rooted in the North-West’s musical tradition, The Common Cold take their influences from The Fall, Neu!, British psychedelic rock band Kaleidoscope, their US contemporaries Quicksilver Messenger Service and the literary work of William Burroughs and Hubert Selby Jr. The band are fronted by former Dandelion Adventure members Ajay Saggar and Mark Wareing and backed up by a pair of drummers. Shut Up! Yo Liberals! is available on LP and CD on Action Records.

JOHN 3:16
עשר

Philippe Gerber of Heat From A Deadstar and Eyryx has been concentrating on his John 3:16 solo output since, as well as collaborating with the likes of Eisenlager, Anthony Donovan, and Pas Musiqiue. עשר which is Hebrew for Ten continues his path down darkly ambient shoegaze rock with growing ominous swells. Comes with download code for 17 bonus tracks.

Jessica Risker
I See You Among The Stars

Missouri-born, Chicago-dwelling Jessica Risker has signed to the fab Western Vinyl label for the latest chapter in her lo-fi, psych-folk, DIY crusade. I See You Among The Stars is a beautiful record that takes in the influences of Nick Drake, Sibylle Baier and Broadcast at their most gentle. LP and CD on Western Vinyl.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Gumboot Soup

Clogging up pressing plants everywhere once again are King Gizzard. Their last one came on so many formats that we almost had a nervous breakdown so we are pleased that this comes on just two. Orange vinyl or CD. Simples. Expect more enthusiastically diverse psych rock from the band who never know when to stop. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Landing
Bells In New Towns

Landing have been at it for twenty years but 'Bells in New Towns' proves that they are still as strong as ever. They play a textured form of post rock, motorik kraut and blissed out shoegaze that is lush and shimmering bringing to mind other long running US outfits such as Yo La Tengo and Bardo Pond.  

Grave Lines
Fed Into The Nihilist Engine

Grumpy and full of existential humdingers, heavy riffers Grave Lines made these hard-edged doom tunes to explore the deep web of the human psyche. A band that loves to cross the bridge between dissonance and melody, Fed Into the Nihilist Engine is one of those metal albums constantly usurping its dynamics. Agh. Yes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Tross
The Overview Effect

Swedish astral travellers Hoga Nord Rekords have put out some neat wax over the past few years. Their journey into the cosmic groove continues with this full-length from Tross. The ten tracks on The Overview Effect are cut from the same cloth as recent HN releases by Mythologen and Andrew Weatherall. Merging kosmische, Krautrock, bongo beats and psychedelic disco, it proves a fine record to lose yourself in.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

His Name Is Alive
Black Wings

I can't pinpoint the exact moment His Name Is Alive got inspired by Hawkwind and Rush but I kinda sometimes wish it hadn't have happened.  This Detroit collective have been putting out wildly varied records since 1986 and kinda do what the hell they like. This latest opus is a 30 track ride through acapella vocals, psych riffs, prog insanity and everything in between.   

Holograma
Waves

This bright collection of electronic textures -- sustained in the background, restless and ever-moving in the foreground -- comes from Fancisco Borjra, known proudly as Holograma on his newest release. A one man band (but with electronics rather than percussion and a harmonica), Borja sets ambient soundscapes in the back and then lets his melodies run loose, incorporating tinny drum machines to keep a forward-thinking rhythm going. This is euphoric electronica that recalls the celebratory collages of Pop Winds.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Andreas Grosser
Venite Visum

Venite Visum is a compilation of recordings made by East German instrument inventor Andreas Grosser between 1976 and 1980. Originally only released on cassette, this is the first time these proper kosmiche ambient compositions will be released on vinyl and CD. Also features the previously unreleased track 'The Quantum Jump'.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Møtrik
Safety Copy

Jealous Butcher have previously released records by The Decemberists, but we’ll forgive them for that if they keep dropping stuff as a good as this. Møtrik are a krautrock four-piece from Portland who stick to the genre’s principles. Motorik grooves, harmonically ambiguous synths, curious snippets of vocal, not much else. Opener ‘Impossible/OK’ sounds like that War On Drugs song that got played to death a couple of years ago, except this time it’s good. Simple stuff done very well, seven times over - that’s Safety Copy.

Howlin Rain
Howlin Rain

Howlin’ Rain are the kind of band that Uncut magazine love. Their music draws its influences from classic ‘60s and ‘70s rock such as The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Allman Brothers, Blue Cheer and Bob Dylan, along with the writing of Richard Brautigan. Their debut, self-titled album was originally released in 2006. Although the band’s sound is synonymous with crackly vinyl, this is the first time it has been released in said format. LP on Silver Current Records.

Las Cobras
Temporal

The Uruguayan  duo of Las Cobras release their debut LP in the shape of Temporal. This nine track LP is the band's first release since their formation in the Summer of 2016. Temporal is a psychic movement, sure to draw the attention of any psyche-heads looking for a new album. The album is influenced by many different roots, taking inspiration from many psychic greats like BJM, but also keeps to its South American roots. Throughout the LP, you can expect enthralling musical psychedelia mixed with classical Latin rooted beats, all mixed in an eclectic LP or the ages.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Frank Zappa
Sheik Yerbouti

Reissues afoot of two Frank Zappa albums on Universal. Sheik Yerbouti is mostly a live album, though Zappa added in some studio wizardry to round things out. Features all the typical Zappa-isms, with lots of highly technical guitar and rhythm lines and a bit of ‘wackiness’. Double LP reissue.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Dark Buddha Rising
II

For the latest LP from Finnish doom-metal crew Dark Buddha Rising, guitarist V. Ajomo states that the band “have done a full cycle of the orbit and now is the time for gravitational slingshot towards the new dimensions in sound, deliverance and vision". Quite. Anyway, II is sludgy, loping doom par excellence. Just one track per side, but so overwhelming are the two editions of ‘Mahathgata’ that you'd probably need a sit down if II had any more music on it. The second side was recorded at their underground practice space of Wastement, aka “the asylum of eternal feedback”.

Goblin
Squadro Antigangsters

Yet another reissue of the Roman hucksters Goblin here (they who did the soundtrack for the original Dawn Of The Dead film). This one is of some music  they came up with for a 1979 flick entitled Squadra Antigangsters - which, if the press release is to be believed, is kind of like an Italian version of The Naked Gun. The score is a predictably wacky affair, with several American musical styles - Country & Western, rockabilly - screwballed through a foreign lens.

The Magic Castles
Starflower

Magic Castles are a Minneapolis group well-versed in the ways of blissfully floating psychedelically-inclined folk-rock. Gentle harmonies float above winding streams of twanging guitar and organ clouds. Starflower, their third album, is released by ‘a’ Recordings as a CD or as a lilac-coloured vinyl LP.

Dr John
In The Right Place

I once literally bumped into Dr. John in a corridor at Manchester University. He won't remember. This is a 2LP re-press of this 1973 album which turned out to be the biggest selling of his career. Cut from the original analogue masters, you'll hear Top 20 hits like 'Right Place, Wrong Time' sounding the way they are supposed to.

The Great Electric
The Great Electric

The Great Electric are an indie supergroup who have turned their hand to making music influenced by ‘70s German electronic and prog rock bands. They feature Darren Hayman (Hefner), Pete Gofton (Kenickie), Malcolm Doherty and Rob Hyde. The music is delivered with a slice of indie-pop melody and a twist of Stereolab and Quickspace. White coloured vinyl LP, limited to 300 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Caudal
Fight, Cry, Fight

Berlin-based post rock trio Caudal complete a loosely connected trilogy of albums with Fight, Cry, Fight. This one is released through Drone Rock Records, whilst previous albums, Forever In Another World and Ascension were released on Oaken Palace Records and Consouling Sounds respectively. Whilst you can expect their usual post-rock/krautrock experimentalism, here they come via more concise songs. It was expertly mastered by John McBain. Regardless of the facts laid bare here for you, this is probably worth buying for the cover alone.

Expo '70
Kinetic Tones

Kinetic Tones from Expo '70 is a continuation of the distinctive sound Justin Wright has pioneered across a decade long career. Minimal guitar drones are combined with feedback hum to create something both ambient and psychedelic. This record also has a unique feel because it was recorded without overdubs to analogue tape. Oaken Palace has pressed 500 of these on very limited bronze vinyl.

Syd Barrett
Barrett

‘Barrett’ was the eponymous Pink Floyd frontman's second and last solo record, produced by his fellow bandmembers Rick Wright and David Gilmour. It's a collection of blues jams and psych rock that recalls artists such as the Byrds. The record has been reissued courtesy of Rhino Records.    Tracks: Baby Lemonade Love Song Dominoes It Is Obvious Rats Maisie Gigolo Aunt Waving My Arms in the Air I Never Lied to You Wined and Dined Wolfpack Effervescing Elephant

Nazoranai
The Most Painful Time Happens Only Once Has It Arrived Already..?

Haino Keiji's post Fushitsusha power trio Nazoranai features a rare pedigree with Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley providing gravity on bass and Oren Ambarchi providing rhythmic propulsion behind the kit. Meanwhile, Haino-san is a law unto himself, unleashing a wall of hallucinatory, otherworldy guitar scree. This document of their live performance at Birmingham in the midst of a 2013 tour was mastered by Rashad Becker in Berlin for optimal clarity and heft and shows how much the trio have developed, harnessing an explosive intensity that rivals anything in Haino's legendary back catalogue.

J Fernandez
Memorize Now

J Fernandez, or Justin to his friends, makes hazy psychedelic pop in his bedroom above a stained glass studio in Chicago, he follows up a couple of EPs on local labels with this 12" on Atelier Ciseaux, which channels Syd Barrett psychedelia and Stereolab retro electronics into an innocent swirl of electric guitar, horns, vintage organs and tape echo.

MIEN
MIEN

Rocket Recordings (Goat, Gnod) present the debut LP from psych super-group MIEN. Featuring the most least-talented member of The Horrors (Tom Furse) as well as men from Elephant Stone, The Black Angels and The Earlies, MIEN was always going to be a fuzzy affair. The stoner-Kraut stomp of lead single ‘Black Habit’ bodes well for the rest of the thing.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Nest Egg
Nothingness Is Not A Curse

Boy howdy that name is a lot huh? Nothing Is Not A Curse is the new album from a trio of North Carolinian nihilists who go by Nest Egg. They groove hard to a motorik beat and a brick house bass line leaving the top end to turn the psychedelia up as high as you'd expect from anything on the Fuzz Club label. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Spacemen 3
Dreamweapon

Dreamweapon by Spacemen 3 documents the time they played live in the foyer of Watermans Art Centre in Brentford at a screening of the Wim Wenders film Wings of Desire. The audience didn’t care for it too much but the 45 minute set of droning guitars will sure please fans of the band. This reissue includes outtakes from 1987 that were recorded in the lead up to the making of the Playing With Fire album. Double LP and CD, which comes in a fancy 6 panel card sleeve that the press release feels the need to tell us is shrink wrapped!
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Love
Forever Changes (50th Anniversary Edition)

One of the greatest albums of all time reaches 50 but, with multiple re-issues down the line already, what will they squeeze out of it this time? Well you get mono and stereo mixes, an alternate mix, and a disc of outtakes - some of which are actually pretty darned good. Superb pastoral psychedelic pop that has influenced generations. Every home should have one in some format or other.

Hendrix
Band Of Gypsys

The last full-length recording by the obscure and unpopular Jimi Hendrix. This was Hendrix's first recording without The Experience giving him the chance to test his genius in a different context. Don't worry, his guitar playing is as searing as always. Worth it if only to hear Hendrix wish you a Happy New Year 1970. 

Michael Raven & Joan Mills
Death And The Lady

Death And The Lady by Michael Raven and Joan Mills is a much sought after and rare folk album. It has never, until now, been reissued on vinyl, and upon its original release in 1974, only 250 were made. For Record Store Day, another 500 are being pressed. Fans on Fairport Convention will no doubt love this as it possesses guitar virtuosity and a great female voice.

The Lucid Dream
SX1000

Not since Paul Weller created 'Modernism: A New Decade' as there been such a stylistic shift as this. Previously the Lucid Dream were Carlisle's biggest psych rock export but here have soaked up 80s UK acid house and produced an unlikely dancefloor-ready track at odds perhaps with previous work but showing a genre-defying ambition unseen elsewhere.      

FACS
Negative Houses

Formed from the ashes of Disappears, Chicago group FACS come through with their debut LP for Trouble In Mind Records (Ultimate Painting, Negative Scanner). The trio create an almighty racket on Negative Houses. Sky-scraping reverbs recall golden-era My Bloody Valentine, but the lumbering post-punk grooves and screes of guitar invoke This Heat and PiL.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Mind Over Mirrors
Bellowing Sun

An incredibly ambitions album/installation from synthetisist Jaime Fennelly. The piece was commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago where it will be performed under a large spinning version of its artwork. It's a textural and rhythmic of the organic, and is every bit as psychedelic as that would imply.

Entourage
Ceremony of Dreams: Studio Sessions & Outtakes, 1972-77

Experimental ambient trio The Entourage Music & Theatre Ensemble released only two LPs during their active years of 190 and 1983. Tompkins Square have managed to collect 30 unreleased tracks that include alternate takes and early versions, alongside notes from the last surviving member Wall Matthews. Stunningly serene stuff that’ll just wash right over you.

Kensington Gore
Hexagon

Stephen Wood and Scott Gubbels make up Kensington Gore, a duo who dabble in driving electronics, spacey soundscapes and motorik propulsion. Hexagon is dark and has an oppressive terror brought about by stabbing synth work, however, this is matched by a lightness of touch, production-wise, and a certain melodic nouse. Thurston Moore is among their celebrity fans. LP only on More Than Human.

Green Seagull
Scarlet Fever

Green Seagull take their influences from ‘60s bands such as The Left Banke, The Association and The Kinks, forming part of the growing neo-psych scene in London. Their authentic take on freakbeat and baroque pop makes Scarlet Fever one of the more interesting releases to look forward to in 2018. LP and CD on Mega Dodo.

Alfa 9
My Sweet Movida

Alfa 9 hail from Newcastle, which is looking a little parched on the cover art for their new album My Sweet Movida. Indeed, there’s quite a country vibe here, rendered by the quartet with high-as-a-kite psych leanings. Between the genre mixing, singing styles, melodies and production, it’s a pan-decade, transatlantic rock haze.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Wet Tuna
Livin’ The Die

Some responsibly-sourced, pole-and-line-caught psych-rock from Wet Tuna here. The Vermont duo’s debut LP sees the pair layering up percussion, organs, vocals and of course some fuzzy fuzzy guitars to create freak-rock jams reminiscent of a lower-budget Moon Duo. Out via Feeding Tube Records (Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, Kurt Vile).
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Bruxa Maria / Casual Nun
Split

The criminally underrated Hominid Sounds (Cattle, Sly & The Family Drone) bring forth this collaborative release from hardcore brutalists Bruxa Maria and stoner-metal group Casual Nun. Bruxa Maria handle the first three, with ‘It’s All In The DNA’ a particularly brutal assault. Casual Nun handle the second half and play things looser and more languidly - but no less impressively - than their Bruxa brethren. Only 250 copies.

Dead Meadow
The Nothing They Need

Dead Meadow have been fusing Black Sabbath-style riffs with whirling, melodic, psych-fuzz for the best part of 20 years now and have seven studio albums, including three for legendary US label Matador, and two live albums under their belts. What this all means is that they’re pretty good at what they do. The Nothing They Need is their latest stoner masterpiece. LP and CD on Xemu Records.
  • Genre(s):

Holy Wave
Adult Fear

Introducing Holy Wave’s third LP, Adult Fear. Gurgling out the retro-rock psychedelic-pop befitting of a band based in sun soaked Austin Texas, their forthcoming album is released by The Reverberation Appreciation Society. The title track ‘Adult Fear’ is an otherworldly journey through sounds harking from Goat, Psychic Ills and The Kinks. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

The No Sorrows
The No Sorrows

Take a lazy afternoon journey filled with rich harmonies, soaring playful violins and wistful charm. London’s noisiest Folk-Rock band The No Sorrows make music that takes you back to 1972 when the sun was always shining with Fairport Convention in tow, but with a bit more balls. The summer of love with a bit more scrumpy.

Gloria
Oidophon Echorama

Gloria's sound really is glorious—three women vocalising in perfect harmony, underpinned by seamless, sun-soaked instrumentation with a deliciously Gallic twist. Think The Shangri Las, if they were Parisian upstarts with a penchant for Serge Gainsbourg and Gauloises. A modern, fresh mini-EP, perfect for summer. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Datashock
Kräuter der Provinz

In 2003 eight musicians started playing together and somehow have managed to stay in touch for one and a half decades to produce this, Kräuter der Provinz. This collectivist krautrock congregation comes from Datashock, and is being released by reliable psychedelic label Bureau B. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Brother JT
Tornado Juice

Brother JT, aka John Terlesky has been exploring psychedelic music for years by way of ace underground labels like Siltbreeze and Drag City. He's still at it though and this latest opus on Thrill Jockey continues melting his love for classic songwriting with a more out there approach to garagey psych.  

Jakob Skott
Taurus Rising

"Pleiades" sounds kind of like Sweet Child Of Mine played on a krutrocker's synth, which is a nice way of summing up the music of Jakob Skøtt, who makes exciting and silly electronic prog with synths and bombastic drum work (Skøtt's tenure in Causa Sui is evident here). It sounds like if the Nice wore sunglasses and took drugs after the show rather than before making music.

Heldon
Electronique Guerilla

Heldon’s very first album, from 1974, reissued on CD and vinyl for your spaced-out listening pleasure. Electronique Guerilla lays out the magical Heldon sound straight away, with Richard Pinhas and friends making magic with (mostly) an EMS Synthi and a guitar. Among the guests are, astonishingly, the actual continental philosophy supremo Gilles Deleuze himself, reciting some Nietzsche! That’s got to be reason enough to snap up this reissue right?
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Hawthonn
Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing)

With Coil's Jhonn Balance as a conducting force, it's never a wonder that the themes contained in Hawthonn's music tread into the esoteric, hypnagogic and ritualistic. The albums sits somewhere between electronic and doom, with a significant prowess for composition and form, for vistas of shadows and light.

Gordon Raphael
Sleep On The Radio

Now that Gordon Raphael is done with finding new acts and producing them - The Strokes, Regina Spektor or  producing established acts, Damon Albarn, Ian Brown, Ian Astbury, he has decided to return his first love - writing and playing songs. With a voice akin to Peter Perrett or Syd Barrett, music that takes its cues from Mick Ronson, Sparks and Frank Zappa, and a collection of songs whittled down from 1000 to 12, his debut solo album, Sleep On The Radio promises to be quite a thing. LP on Zero Hours.

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan
Dirt

Everybody's favourite weirdo noise prog crew return with more of their tectonic theatrics and chaotic jubilation. They released UZU in 2013 and this is its followup, the hazardous Dirt. Drawing on "Asian disapora and Indigenous influences", it's set to be a poignant record from one of rock music's most exciting.

Black Heaven

Earthless streamline their sound for their fourth LP. Black Heaven relies far less on the spacey prog-metal jams that have characterised their previous albums. Instead, four of the six tracks here are vocal-led metal songs in the vein of Black Sabbath. Lead single ‘Gifted By The Wind’ features riffs aplenty and some very soulful singing. A welcome change of pace.

Drums Off Chaos
Centre

The late Jaki Liebezeit is of course best known as the innovative and influential drummer of Can. In recent years he often discussed his self-styled binary theory of rhythm, put into practice on this percussion-only EP with the help of three other drummers. The style conveys echoes of various African, Asian and Indian percussion styles, as well as the cyclical grooves and recognisable drum tone that were a feature of his tenure in Can. Hardly surprisingly, it’s hypnotically engrossing stuff.

Black Lizard
Celebration Of A New Dawn

Celebration Of A New Dawn is the third album by self-proclaimed leading Finnish garage rock band Black Lizard. They’ve made what could be their best record yet, taking the best psych rock bits from the Nuggets compilations and ‘90s shoegaze as their influences to make an album relevant for today. LP on Fuzz Club.

The Doozer
Figurines

Fraggle Rock connoisseur The Doozer (real name Anonymous Bearded Cambridgian) is ready with a sixth album on limited press with Feeding Tube Records. Figurines continues a trend of affable, feathery psych-pop with the same sort of twee, quotidian whimsy as Syd Barrett - his voice actually sounds rather like Barrett’s as rendered by Zach Condon.

Green Druid
Ashen Blood

The Earache label are rightly proud of having brought the sound of Sleep to the world and now they seem equally excited to be releasing Ashen Blood, the debut album by Denver, Colorado doom merchants Green Druid. The riffs are heavy and slow and the lyrics take their influence from HP Lovecraft’s horror novels. The sound of Ashen Blood reflects the depressing and chaotic circumstances in which it was made. Double LP and CD on Earache.

Alvarius B / Sir Richard Bishop
Strange Fruit

Unrock here issue a very special record indeed, pairing Sun City Girls' Alan and Richard Bishop on a split 10". These figures need no introduction given their work within the celebrated avant-psych outfit in which they made their names. This release holds extra significance though, celebrating 25 years of the label.

Spiny Normen
Spiny Normen

Never before released, it’s about time the mid-1970s LP Spiny Normen by heavy Houston psych-fuzzers Spiny Normen finally met contemporary UK mail-order record shop Norman Records by Norman Records. Recorded in a technical college, these eight tunes span hard rock, Jethro Tull-esque flute prog, offbeat acid scuzz and more.

Octopus
Supernatural Alliance

Octopus are a heavy psych rock band from Detroit and are not to be confused with several other bands from the annals of musical history with the same name. They are helmed by former Electric Six guitarist J Frezzato. Their intention is not just to peek inside the doors of perception, but to blow them wide open and start a psych rock revolution. They aim to do this with their new album, Supernatural Alliance. LP and CD on Rise Above, LP is limited to 300 copies.

Whyte Horses
Empty Words

Here come enigmatic Manchester psychedelicists Whyte Horses with their second album (not counting the thing they did with a children's choir). They are led by crate digger Dom Thomas who also finds time amongst digging those crates to helm Finders Keepers. Noel Gallagher described their last record as 'great' so hopes are even higher for this.  

Holy Motors
Slow Sundown

Are there enough dreamgaze bands with warped vocals to guide you through an everlasting half-sleep? Quoting Estonian reverb-junkies Holy Motors: never! Their debut album Slow Sundown is packed with dizzying guitars and gentle infinite soundscapes. It features their three singles, which have been zooming across the hip and first-to-know blogs for the past months.

Death And Vanilla
EP

Oh kind people at Fire Records, fresh from issuing Death and Vanilla's much loved second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' have now embarked on a re-issue programme of the bands earlier work including this now impossi-find debut EP. This was the record that first informed us that there could indeed be life after Broadcast. It now re-unleashed on blue vinyl for those who missed out first time round.  

Majeure
Timespan Redux

Oh the things you can do with an armful of analogue synths and a drum kit... ZOMBI's A.E. Paterra comes at us with an epic, relentless journey through the cosmos. And a very groovy cosmos it is. Psychedelic in intention, kraut in execution, deep space soundtrack in spirit, and all the better for it.

Demian Castellanos
The KYVU Tapes Volume II

Cardinal Fuzz front this selection of exploratory ambiences by The Oscillation driving-force Demian Castellanos. The KYVU Tapes Volume II collects tracks Castellanos put to tape in the 90s and sees him setting aside the formal constraints of his main group. Entries like ‘Shimmer’ and ‘Transparent Landscape’ are forceful and hypnotic drones. Only 200 copies.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Polygondwanaland

The exclusive coloured vinyl version is now sold out - sorry. Too slow! They're at it again. The Melbourne-based seven piece have released five records this year...a work rate that makes Robert Pollard look like Kevin Shields. Lots of music, then, but is it any good? Of course it is. An album of jazz and groove laden gems to finish off perfectly a very busy year for this increasingly popular band.

White Manna
Bleeding Eyes

The times really are good for modern psych rock fans at the moment, with bands like White Manna turning out quality records on a regular basis. Bleeding Eyes is a potent set of tune-in drop-out heaviness, with fierce rhythmic drive and wah-wahed riffage throughout its eight tracks. The album is released on CD and LP through the combined efforts of Cardinal Fuzz and Agitated.
  • Genre(s):
  • Psyche / Space / Kraut / Prog

Gonjasufi
Callus

The new Gonjasufi LP is pretty bleak and heavy: the sleeve art makes it look like a black metal record, and the tone of Callus isn’t far off that, even if it is expressed through totally different sounds. Gonjasufi’s voice sounds pained and angry, and the whole texture of Callus sounds digitally sound-blasted. In other words, it is extremely effective at broadcasting a powerful atmosphere. Out on Warp.
