Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation

Mirage, the second full-length from Josefin Öhrn and her group The Liberation, is a psychedelic record that is more interesting and unusual than a whole lot of psychedelic records. Öhrn’s cool vocals and melodic craft bring a Broadcasty touch that is ver...view item »


Have fun before the world ends (spoiler: it will be soon) with the debut album from Goatman. As the name suggests this is a man from sprawling Swedish collective Goat. The album is an exploration of the groove jumping across genres from jazz to psych to kraut rock. Like Goat it's hard to categorise but we can su...view item »


Colourful Scandinavian psychedelic crew Goat are back with their third album 'Requiem' which the be-robed psych-sters claim is going to be their 'folk' opus. We'll wait to see on that but in an age of internet transparency, Goat manage to keep a cloaked mystery to their movements which of course makes them way more fascinating t...view item »

Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine

The mighty Mancunian GNOD juggernaut rolls ever onwards with a fierce five-strack statement, potently titled Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine. The music bites as hard as the righteous title, with repeato-riffs pushi...view item »

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 on...view item »

Lay Llamas

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...view item »


We've got another one of those Scandinavian Krautrock outfits for you to sink your teeth into here. VED are a five-piece from Malmo who create lengthy tracks built on Motorik grooves, droning synths and instrumental freakouts. They claim that there’s a big influence of ‘Middle Eastern [and] African’ music on ...view item »

Temple Ov BBV
Temple Ov BBV

Temple Ov BBV, named for a Dutch psychedelic scientist who drilled a hole in his own skull (BBV stands for ‘Brain Blood Volume’), is the matching up of the ferocious Gnod with Holland’s Radar Men From The Moon. These four intricate suites of psych-strangeness a...view item »

Bonnacons of Doom
Bonnacons of Doom

Whoever it is that’s behind Bonnacons of Doom - members of Forest Swords, Mugstar, Youth Movies and more have all been known to contribute - they clearly know what they’re doing. The band’s debut LP claims acid house as a starting point, but really the record l...view item »

Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature. The result is an invigorating album of furious riffs and bleak dubbed out soundsca...view item »

Let It Burn

Like every other band on the planet Goat think their new song is the best they've ever done. However their record company agree too so maybe it is really good. Anyway all parties have got so excited about it that they've released it on a 7" in four different colours randomly distributed so if you want the lot then please keep bu...view item »


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

Fuzzed In Europe

Masked myth-makers Goat have pulled all of the psych rock fables, playing its light pop version as paying tribute to its noisy, distorted hellscape. Fuzzed In Europe is a collection of six tracks pulled from endless recordings of their continental tour, deciding upon the ones that sounded estranged f...view item »

Shit & Shine
That’s Enough

It’s easy to consider Austin's Shit & Shine as spiritual descendants of near neighbours Butthole Surfers, but it’s a valid comparison in the best possible sense, capturing their unpredictability, abrasiveness, and a giddy humour undercut by subtle malevolence. This indie-only 12”, limi...view item »

Hey Colossus
Radio Static High

Hey Colossus have become more and more of a multi-faceted band as time has gone by. Radio Static High finds them managing to hold back the apocalyptic riff-monster and allow their tracks a little more room to breath and expand. The results still sound blasted, but in a fresh new way. Out from the Rocket label....view item »

Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation
Horse Dance

Josefin Ohrn & The Liberation make genuinely deep psychedelia that takes the listener on a journey to another place entirely. Horse Dance is their first full length album which follows on from their Diamond Waves EP. The band are signed to Rocket Recordings - the label which has overseen th...view item »


This intricate slab of zero-compromise alt/indie music knows not where to stop in the art of experimentation. Chopped into seven pieces, FF061116 is the twisted works of London-based project Housewives. Comparisons will be made, but this is a unique and oddly timeless piece of avant-garde aud...view item »

Hey Colossus
The Guillotine

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

I Sing in Silence

The frenzied Scandinavian crew who go by the name of Goat are getting just a little less frenzied with their new material, chiefly by moving mostly to acoustic instruments. I Sing In Silence is awash with flutes and wooden percussion, all tethered to a lovely vocal melody. This is laid-back psychedelic music of a high o...view item »

Flowers Must Die

Flowers Must Die unveil their debut full-length album Kompost! This record finds the Swedish group delving deep into the psychedelic heritage of their homeland, melding it with an improvised approach towards sweet groove. It’s a dense but bright sound, full of colour and flair. Kompost is released by Rock...view item »


Russian psych rockers Gnoomes had access to a bank of presumably indestructible vintage Russian synths when making this record. Experimenting with these beasts has allowed them to marry their stargazing pulsating kraut rock with the sort of brave new world synth exploration found in the back tunnels of the War records back catal...view item »

Crystallized - Celebrating 15 Years Of Rocket Recordings

Rocket Records have been going for 15 years. That’s quite a feat in this fickle industry we inhabit (cohabit?). What with labels, artists and record companies losing money left, right and center these days (cos folk want music for free and straight away) things are a lot trickier than they used to be....view item »

Teeth of The Sea

Teeth of the Sea are back with album number three, ‘Master’, as they further refine their spaghetti western space rock into new cosmic forms, with lots of krautrock repetition and lashings of synths which bring to mind the likes of Eat Lights Become Lig...view item »

Alive at Roadburn

Hills are alive with the sound of psych rock. With four songs they have sung for many years.  Hills may fill your heart with primal hypnotic rhythms. They'll make you want to sing every song you hear. Their songs beat with the rhythm of the Byrds. Playing 'Eight Miles High' forever up in the trees.&...view item »


Gnoomes hail from far Russia, in a region previously used as a place of exile. Isolation can be a bad thing, but it can also bring people closer (and allow them to make loud noises without complaints). Hence, Gnoomes, who are a close-knit space-rock band devoted to transcending through gorgeous musical sprawl. D...view item »

Infinity Machines

When was the last time you saw a triple album that was named Volume 1? Well Gnod have never been too concerned with what is ordinary, and frankly the prospect of almost two straight hours of incantatory-heavy-psych-dub-electric-noise-rock-weirdo madness should excite you greatly. Welcome to Infinity Machines (Volume...view item »

Julie's Haircut
Invocation And Ritual Dance Of My Demon Twin

Experimental sound explorers from northern Italy have been pushing the unknown sonic weirdness since the mid 90s, heavily influenced by the soundscape freedoms of Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine, whilst holding onto a constant and enticingly repetitive kraut groove back bone. Get lost, good and proper....view item »

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
Feed The Rats

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are the extra-dense grouping of members of such heavy North-East bands as Khunnt and Blown Out. They play sludged-up psych-rock that just hammers and hammers away at the listener with noisy riffs until you fall over. Feed The Rats is a full-length albu...view item »

Shit & Shine
54 Synth-Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral

Craig Clouse (ex-Hammerhead/Todd) presents the latest filthy missive from his consistently fascinating Shit & Shine project. ‘54 Synth-Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral’ is an eccentric brew of trance-inducing rhythms, sampled mischief and oddball noise which quickly proves addictive. If The Butth...view item »


Kuro are a duo made up of Lyon-based Agathe Max, and Bristol-based Gareth Turner. Both of whom have more than enough extensive musical knowledge to create the progressive and intuitive record also called Kuro- a dark and deep mix of ambient and psychedel...view item »

Flowers Must Die
Sista Valsen EP

Swedish psych-crew Flowers Must Die release this new 12” EP on the UK’s Rocket Recordings, the natural home for all fuzzed-out modern psychedelics. Sista Valsen contains 4 jammed-out tracks recorded just after violinist and vocalist Lisa Ekelund joined the group: hear her being integrated in...view item »

Teeth of The Sea
Highly Deadly Black Tarantula

Following on from their third album, 2014’s Master, Teeth Of The Sea return with Highly Deadly Black Tarantula - a pummelling workout that’s as aggressive as it is groovy. Equal parts post-rock scope and heavy metal ferocity, it’s the kind of album at which Teeth Of The Sea excel. Out on CD and vinyl L...view item »

Live Ballroom Ritual

I was moaning to Mike the other morning as to why there appeared to be no DVD issue of this and he snappily retorted, "Maybe they didn't film it?". I just assume they film everything these days but maybe that's just all the twats with their mobile phones innit? An eternal bone of gig-going contention if ever there was one to gnaw hungrily on....view item »

Lay Llamas

We've got an album of top quality stoned kraut-psych business here from Rome-based duo Lay Llamas on the mighty Rocket Recordings this week. As so very often happens nowadays, there's a hastily-scribbled post-it note on it. This one says "Promo has been around forever. Extended psych jams. First track nicks 'Psycho Killer' bassline". Listening...view item »

Necro Deathmort
The Capsule

Hold up, Necro Deathmort? Yeah, that’s three different words for death… Though they may not sound how you imagine, on this record at least. Following in a darker vein to band mates Teeth of the Sea, but mixing rock (or in these guys’ case extreme metal) with electronic experiments brings a hug...view item »

Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation / Gnoomes
Repetitions EP

This is a split EP between Russian band Gnoomes and Swedish group Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation. Both are clearly in love with electronic takes on the motorik vibes of krautrock, as pulsing rhythms and Repetitions are at the core of the music here. The bands also remix each other here. 12” on...view item »


More new music from the ever-adventurous Gnod, in the form of 3 stretched-out tracks. Politically-generated rage was the key to the creation of the tracks on Mirror, and the ferocious momentum and bruised anger they carry will prove infectious. Both vinyl and CD versions are packed in mirrorboard sleeves, and the CD / d...view item »

Capra Informis
Womb of the Wild

Capra Informis make a dense and intense space rock full of weird instrumentation and unpredictable twists. On Womb of the Wild, an extremely limited 12” vinyl for Rocket records, they also embrace some droning organ and queasy synth work. A lovely bit of noisy and repetitive psych rock wit...view item »


Yes that’s right, what we have here is an EP on which Brooklyn’s endlessly thrilling Oneida cover This Heat, one of the most remarkable bands yet seen. Incredible scenes. As well as their take on ‘S.P.Q.R’, they also cover ...view item »

Symphony for the Devil

Mamuthones kick off their cover version of The Rolling Stones’ classic ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ with a distinctly LCD Soundsystem-esque drum machine / synth combo. It’s certainly a new direction for the hardy old tune, but in fact it works rather well, especially when it ...view item »


Swedish group Hills are dedicated to ever-escalating psychedelic freakouts, which they pull off with aplomb. But, crucially, they are also keen to avoid cliche, and their tracks keep things original with slightly unusual structures and lesser-spotted instruments like the flute. Frid, their third album, is released by Ro...view item »

Hey Colossus
In Black And Gold

Hey Colossus and Rocket Recordings seem like such a natural fit, I was surprised to see this was their first release together. Hey Colossus’ furious in-the-red psych-noise-rock has been going down well for years, and In Black And Gold contains plenty of that sound, but it also has a few tracks tha...view item »

Mamuthones / Evil Blizzard
Collisions Vol.4

The fourth LP in Rocket Recordings’ Collisions series of split releases finds Italy’s occult psych monsters Mamuthones going head to head with demented UK sprawlers Evil Blizzard. The former incorporate fresh elements of VU-style drone rock and Byrne/Eno rhythmic cla...view item »

Stonegoat / Dreambuilding

Oh, hello! I’m sure Goat need no introduction by now since the blogs and broadsheets alike are in thrall to their unique blend of classic psych rock and rhythms, bursting onto the scene fully-formed with killer LP ‘World Music’ last year. After a select handful of ritualistic shows which saw the...view item »

It's Time For Fun

Rejoice! A brand new single from Goat and the first new material since the much-loved 'Commune' album. Goat keep up the pretence of being some kind of hedonistic commune dwelling trolls by disappearing to the village of Korpilombolo in Sweden to record new material which will appear on an upcoming third album. This 7" however wa...view item »

White Hills
Heads On Fire

Fresh from the roaring success of their split LP with The Heads, White Hills have seen fit to reissue their 'Heads on Fire' album on sweaty vinyl with extra Julian Cope-endorsed twiddles in the form of your download codez. I really like their shit (their music obviously, not their actual faeces) and the way they crank up their all tube (of course...view item »


This is Li'l Bi's review for the original wax of Vol. 1 Everyone loves Gnod right? These Manchester lads have got the balance between freeform improvised, Krautrock groove and cosmic Space Rock down to a fine art with tons of sweet self-released Tapes/CD'S and a couple of LP's (including a split with White Hills) to prove it. Prior to th...view item »

Master Sleeps

Hills are of course the mysterious Swedish hypno-psych band who already put out an LP of live jams on Leeds’ celebrated Cardinal Fuzz label. Apparently this trio are buddies with Goat, with rumours abound that the two bands may or may not share membe...view item »

Outside the Circle

Proudly psychedelic, this one: ex-Heads member Paul Allen has essentially made 'Outside The Circle' as a heavy, hair-waving response to the way people see psych rock now. He's joined by other experimental champions Gareth Turner and Jesse Webb, previously of the Big Naturals, and with them at his side 'Outside the Circle' goe...view item »

World Music

The debut record by insane Swedish rockers Goat, highly recommended for everybody who loves squealing guitars, screaming ladies, and catchy afrobeat grooves. Combining psychedelic rock with lots of ethnic rhythms, World Music scored highly in many of 2012’s end-of-the-year lists. Great volumes of tribal distortion...view item »

Teeth of The Sea
Orphaned By The Ocean

Here's what our Brian had to say about the CD edition of this album way back in January 2009!   "Next up is a disc on Rocket from Teeth Of The Sea which has pricked our Brett's ears up with a "very Morricone'" comment and one from Brian "Like Earth crossed with Beirut". It's giving me mariachi vibes. I watched that Planet Te...view item »


I know from our sales figures that a lot of you are already pretty into cult UK psych titans The Heads, so you probably don’t need me to tell you that Anthroprophh is the alter-ego of their visionary songwriter and axe-mangler Paul Allen, who here dish...view item »

Gnod / Shit & Shine
Collisions 03

Here we have a very limited and slightly confusing split LP from repeato-psych bastards Gnod and Shit & Shine, who each deliver their own side-long track, &lsquo...view item »


Gnods latest offering is as droney and repetitive as you like. It has a motorik rhythm section which is quite pummeling actually, and the sonics are kind of kept together by it. It's quite brooding and has a definite krautrock feel...krautrock played by drugged up hippies. The song kicks off with a drone that comes straight from Satan's bottom, ...view item »

Gnod / White Hills
Gnod Drop Out With White Hills II

This is good...a collaborative effort from Manchester's finest bongster's Gnod and New York bad boyz White Hills. Both experts in the field of mongy psychedelic rock with propulsive kraut tendencies, they are the perfect match for a full on space rock assault! They should have called themselves TEAM: SPACEROCK...i'd have really liked that....view item »

White Hills / The Heads
Collision V. 1

What I need today is some heavy psych stoner rock. The Heads who formed in Bristol back in the dark ages and NY's White Hills have a smart double header LP out on Rocket. I think people are starting to realise how important The Heads are now, they've been plugging their dirgy, brooding acid fried sound for years now and everytime I hear one of ...view item »
