Headland
What Rough Beast

Australian surf music collective, Headland, make a rare foray into the world of song with What A Rough Beast. The band usually play instrumental music but here have found inspiration from installing dishwashers, faces in the sky, blood-filled footballs and how lizards feel about things for their lyrics. Not your run of the mill subjects, but no doubt all the better for it.

Carlton Melton
Hidden Lights

San Franciscan psychedelic trippy guys Carlton Melton unleash the first fruits of their new jams with this 25 minute three track EP. This is the first offering since Out To Sea and should showcase further cosmic journeys this time augmented by Phil Manley (Fucking Champs etc) in the production chair. 

Straight Arrows
Another Day In The City

A Record Store Day 2019 special 7” single from the acclaimed Straight Arrows, with their rambunctious cover of the British Jets’ murder-punk classic ‘Another Day In The City’, while on the reverse is a brand new track in the shape of ‘Black & Blue’. Follows on from their 2018 studio album.

Straight Arrows
On Top!

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

Carlton Melton
Mind Minerals

These psych freaks are named like a solo artist but make their noise as a bunch of plural. In 2015 they released arguably their most expansive record yet, a noodling monolith of tight rhythms and paths less travelled. They follow it up with Mind Minerals, an attempt at upgrading artistic impressions of futurism that's proudly labelled "3001: A Space Odyssey". We're told the drums are really good; we kinda knew that already.

Last of the Easy Riders
Unto The Earth

Hm, not too sure how I feel about 'psych-infused country-rock', doesn't seem right to me. But, if psych-infused country-rock is your thing, then Unto The Earth by Last of the Easy Riders may be the perfect thing for your ears. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on Agitated. It's worth noting that the LP, is red, limited to 500 copies and includes a poster. 

Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys
Rot

Two steps ahead of anyone hoping to insult them with a jeering nickname since 2009, Sydney’s Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys return to peddle their rather raucous, slightly punkish and unapologetically dated rock & roll. Rot is their second LP, released on LP/CD by their own label R.I.P. Society and brims with filthy bass, fabulously harsh guitars mixed high and hoarsely-barked vocals.

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.

Joel Silbersher
No Teeth

There's only 500 of those beauties to get your grubby mitts on. This a distinctly weathered Melbourne veteran - having been performing for an astonishing 41 years and still strong - who is not rolling over yet; Joel Silbersher's solo offering No Teeth is a witting and snarling edition with a soulful twist.

White Dog
Sydney Limits

Proper no-messing hardcore punk from the dirty underside of Sydney, Australia. White Dog tick all the boxes: driving rhythmic chug, nihilistic macho-bloke shouting, and a 16 track / sub-30 minute tracklisting. Sydney Limits is the band’s debut full-length, released on CD and 45RPM-cut 7” by the Agitated label.

Straight Arrows
Turn It Off / Dead and Bored (It Happens Again)

Straight Arrows have thrown together this tight 7” single for an upcoming tour of the states. Turn It Off and B-side Dead and Bored (It Happens Again) are a pair of high-energy, low-bullshit garage rockers, precision-tuned like a fast motorcycle. There are 300 copies of this 7” in existence, but 120 are reserved for the tour, so move fast!

Last of the Easy Riders
Last of the Easy Riders

Free like a bird, or more like an american eagle. Last of the Easy Riders’ EP that precedes their forthcoming debut full length is chocka block with midwestern twang, hazy road trips on route 66 through desert and rocky mountains alike. Big organ, big everything, car drives off, camera pans up, credit roll stuff.

Miss Destiny
Miss Destiny

The girls are outshining the boys once again with this debut album from Melbourne based Miss Destiny. Bullet belts, leather jackets, pounding fists, and banging heads. Raucous big stage presence with a DIY edge and a serious message as well as Danzig, beer, punk rock, friends, and the open road in tow.

The Green Bananas
The Ape / Green Banana

The Green Bananas are a side project of Australian weirdo indie band Straight Arrows. With their new single, and sure-fire massive hit The Ape, they attempt to create a primitive yet electrifying new dance craze. The b-side contains an eponymously titled instrumental. Limited edition of 350, on Agitated.

The Royal Sitars
Eloise / Distant and Vague

Royal Headache are an Australian band who play proper rock music, with proper guitars and proper haircuts. But no guitars here… For on this single, The Royal Sitars perform sitar versions of 2 Headache tunes, Eloise / Distant and Vague. I’m not quite sure why… But sitar sounds are always welcome. 500 copies of this 7”, on Agitated.

Spacin'
Total Freedom

Spacin’ make a super loose, stripped-back rock ‘n roll and on Total Freedom they get even more minimal. The motorik drumming and angular guitar are clearly inspired by The Velvet Underground, but the band also bring a trippy southern groove that locks into extended jams. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Richie/Agitated.

Cereal Killer
No Life 'Til Cereal

Cereal Killer were too busy furiously slamming down tracks in the recording studio to think of a proper name for their band: or maybe their moniker gives a good sense of the care-free attitude evident in these four thrashing speed-punk track. No Life Till Cereal is limited to 250 7” copies on Agitated / Anti-Fade.

The Icarus Line
All Things Under Heaven

The Icarus Line are true rockers to the core, though All Things Under Heaven finds them fraying at the edges at points, sometimes straying almost into furious free jazz passages. Warren Ellis of Dirty Three and The Bad Seeds joins them at times, and you know he has taste. L.A. wildness released by the Agitated label.

Evil Acidhead
In The Name Of All That Is Unholy

Shockingly, given the name, this isn’t the kind of psychedelia that lounges bucolically in sunny pastoral scenes. No no, Evil Acidhead is much more of a bad-trip kind of project, which In The Name Of All That Is Unholy captures perfectly. 80’s cassette reissued as coloured (red or green) vinyl with a free poster on Agitated.

The Sunset Strip
Stone Lazy

Aussie indie heroes The Sunset Strip took their influence from The Byrds, Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Dinosaur Jr creating a brand of melodic, sludgy, guitar-heavy alt. rock that wowed the critics but not the cash registers. Stone Lazy was supposed to have been released back in 1995 but their label folded, and the album was shelved…..until now! Limited to 250 copies.

Carlton Melton
Out To Sea

Out To Sea by Carlton Melton sees the band growing their psychedelic palette with a thundering rhythm section, cosmic guitar riffs, searing solos and analog synth action wrapped in an ethereal prog bubble. Fans of The Heads, Parson Sound, Bardo Pond and Faust, among others will dig this. It's pressed on double coloured vinyl too!

Hits
Loose Cannons / Big Black car

Proper Aussie rock and roll from Hits with this blinding vinyl 7” single of Loose Cannon, taken from the 2014 album Hikikomori which was only released in Australia and France alongside a studio version (previously unreleased) of Big Black Car. Recorded by Rob Younger of New Christs/Radio Birdman. Loud, raucous and cool as chips. From Agitated.

Night Flights
Night Flights Vol: 1

This ambient act have studied the likes of Brian Eno (who liked to write about aeroplanes himself, in his way), Tangerine Dream and Stars of the Lid, making a record of organic and wonderfully dated compositions through synthwork and soundscaping. 'Night Flights Vol. 1' is recommended for all those in need of a spaced out meditation or two -- or who need something to sooth them after take off.

The Living Eyes
Guilty Pleasures / Lowlife

Limited edition new two tracker from one of Geetroit’s (that’s Geelong, Victoria to you pommy losers!) best! The Living Eyes deal in punk rock, as in pop, with a snarl and whipsmart edge. Australia has some killer stuff going on (as usual), and this new breed of Murder Punk Unknowns features the likes of the Living Eyes at the forefront. Snotty, snarly, and almost both tracks being pop hits (from the gutter), fans of the Hard Ons, Psycho Surgeons, Fun Things, and Ramones might want to check some of this action out!! A Split release with Agitated and Anti-Fade.

The Icarus Line
Avowed Slavery

Hey, this aint no “follow up” number, this is a the other arm getting a shot; this is the Slave Vows era of the Icarus Line getting its I’s dotted. A sort of finality at play here, “Avowed Slavery” is the companion release to 2013’s well received SLAVE VOWS album, this completes the circle of fury.With the video release of “City Job” at the end of 2013, and the Slave Vows album still making people talk, it was time to put these songs to wax, prepare the world for The Icarus Line's next move. Five tracks spread over the two sides, this mini album serves as a Slave Vows booster jab, the feral verocity of the last album is in spades here, maybe even more so, the fire in the band’s belly is roaring, and its only when the last track closes down do you realise quite fully, the impact.

Star Spangled Banana
Pebbles 2000

Claiming to be the creators of a whole new genre called bubble-grunge, and then claiming to be the pioneers of said paradoxical genre, Star Spangled Banana play a kind of gorgeous alt rock that uses low-end and gruesome amps to a joyous end. Pebbles 2000 is a tribute to a bunch of fun-time old people like the Monkees and the Beatles -- but, like, with a misanthropic rock aesthetic.

The Icarus Line
Slave Vows

Here we have the fifth LP from the somewhat down-on-their-luck LA punk band The Icarus Line. Slave Vows is as torrid a listen as they have given us yet, but also one of the more mature works Joe Cardamone And His Un-Merry Men have produced. The likes of Iceage and Daughters are invoked, but lengthy and ambitious cuts such as opener ‘Dark Circles’ could pass for an early masterpiece by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
