Shit & Shine
Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs

Listen kids doing drugs is way bad just look at all the middle aged, coked up victims of the music industry. You could also end up not even having to need the likes of Shit and Shine to soundtrack your nightmares. Doing Drugs, Selling Drugs is a return to the disgusting sound of the early Shit and Shine records mixing up dirge filth and nasty distorted rock. For the rest of us this is the aural equivalent of the most terrifying trip ever.

Orchestra Of Constant Distress
Distress Test

Orchestra Of Constant Distress offer up a tantalising proposition: stasis, entropry, and dynamic-free noise. Mmmm, yummy. And yet, if you know the artists involved (who hail from groups lie The Skull Defekts, Union Carbide Productions and even Brainbombs(!)), you’ll be bound to love the blasted slabs that resulted from this quartet’s noise-based improvisations. Distress Test is out on Riot Season.

Sloath
III

Originating in sessions that began way back in December 2014, it’s taken nearly six years for Sloath to complete their perfunctorily titled third album III. Their minimalist, savagely loud sludge rock paradigm has been rationalised and streamlined even further this time, more steely and groove-based than their last outing Deep Mountain.

Black Helium
Primitive Fuck

Riot Season (Hey Colossus, The Cosmic Dead) present the debut LP from Black Helium. Initially formed for a one-off gig in 2016, the band decided to persevere and have ended up with the eight tunes of Primitive Fuck. As well as being an excellent title, it's also an apt one - the band are heavily indebted to both the psychedelic freeness of Amon Düül and the no-BS proto-punk of The Stooges. A fun ride.

Their new album Chosen Star Child's Confession is released on Riot Season and features Geoff Leigh from prog rock band Henry Cow.

Orchestra Of Constant Distress
Live At Roadburn 2019

Orchestra Of Constant Distress are a Swedish group containing members of the likes of Skull Defekts, Brainbombs and No Balls. They were invited to take their pummelling racket to Roadburn festival in 2019 and if you weren't there to have your ears shredded in person then you can go deaf in the comfort of your own home with this limited edition live recording on Riot Season.

Earthling Society
MO - The Demon

Riot Season’s the name, loud music’s the game. To a roster that includes The Cosmic Dead, Bad Guys and Art Of Burning Water they now add Leeds College Of Music group Earthling Society. MO - The Demon is an unofficial soundtrack to a Shaw Brothers flick entitled The Boxer’s Omen. The plot is something to do with kung-fu and shrooms and black magic, and of course that means we have a psych rock record to contend with here. Santana (ooh err) and Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis (better) are cited as influences.

Electric Moon / Terminal Cheesecake
In Search Of Highs Volume 3

Volume Three of Riot Season’s In Search Of Highs split series arrives with the extremely credible pairing of Electric Moon and Terminal Cheesecake. One long slab of high-blasting space rock fills Electric Moon’s side, while the Cheesecake boys get real weird with it on side B. A handy addition to both band’s catalogues.

Blown Out / Comacozer
In Search Of Highs Volume 1

Righteous psychers Comacozer and Blown Out are totally on the same wavelength for this latest bong-bubbling split LP on Riot Season. The two bands (from Australia and the UK, respectively) get some trippy scuzz going - one extended, ecstatic jam from Comacozer and several shorter indulgences from Blown Out.

Perhaps
7.0

Stumbled upon by a journalist on assignment in Bermuda, the elastically-numbered psychedelic collective Perhaps, led by Jim Haney, have been captured on record for the perfunctorily titled 7.0. Released in limited numbers on the Riot Season label, the group’s acid-damaged music is unlike anything most of us have ever heard.

The Noise Birds
The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light

A long-awaited follow-up to a cult classic recording, The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light is released under the name The Noise Birds, a collaboration between Japanese act Suishou No Fune and American duo Numinous Eye. Consisting of three lengthy improvisation pieces, whose recording was filmed for an upcoming documentary, the chemistry between these four close friends is utterly remarkable.

Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe

If the previous 100-odd Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. records hadn’t slaked your thirst for the group’s brand of incantatory psych-rock then perhaps you should consider adding Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe to your collection. AMT&TMPUFO (Christ) have recently revamped their lineup for the first time in about two decades, but that doesn’t mean that the music they’re making is much different. Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe is still a heady brew of dirge and doom.

La Grande Armée
La Grande Armée

La Grand Armée are a Chilean instrumental band. They play a blend of stoner psych and prog rock that takes inspiration from ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll and blues. Their debut physical self-titled release is an expanded version of a three-track EP that had been shared around Facebook. Expect solos, expect wig-outs, expect fuzz.

The Cosmic Dead
Scottish Space Race

Glasgow heavyweights the Cosmic Dead return with four more slabs of supersized psychedelic jam. Their churning, monolithic sound has been recorded live at their Glasgow hideaway by long term collaborator Luigi Pasquini and features lap steel synth (what?) from Andrew Gray (Girl Sweat). Sure as always to knock your socks clean off...and isn't that image on the cover art similar geographically to Lana Del Rey's understanding of the Scottish border?

Taras Bulba
One

Fred Laird and Jon Blacow used to be in space-rock band Earthling Society, so while the abstract psychedelia of their new project Taras Bulba is a bit of a change of pace it’s actually not so far removed from what they’ve done in the past. The group’s debut LP One oscillates between freeform Lynchian abstraction and some more Can-esque, groove-based stuff. Pretty nifty record this.

Hibushibire
Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out!

Everyone knows that the best, most gnarliest psychedelic-rock comes from Japan: accept no imitations. So the arrival of Osaka trio Hibushibire’s second album Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out! is a cause for celebration, especially with Makoto Kawabata himself manning the production desk! Vivid, guitar-driven freakouts, with three tracks on side one and one big monster on side two.

Perhaps
Hexagon

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

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.

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

More Somerset Stoner Sludge from Henry Blacker, the regional offshoot of Hey Colossus. The Making Of Junior Bonner is their third full album to date, and it positively seethes with noisy distortion and ear-bludgeoning riffs. Nine fairly punchy tracks in forty minutes, making for a good-sized portion of guitar weight. Vinyl release from Riot Season.

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow. The eight of them made a right old racket which has now been re-pressed onto a double LP with a bonus LP of outtakes and tracks which didn't make the first pressing. 

Early Mammal
Take A Lover

Early Mammal are a psychedelic blues four-piece from South London. Their influences range from classic acts such as Captain Beefheart and Aphrodite’s Child to more recent weirdness like White Hills. Take A Lover is the band’s third album and was recorded live. It sees the band reinvigorated and indulging in extended jams.

Perhaps
V

Boston-based sonic voyagers Perhaps build on the promise of their handful of self-released LPs with a long-form suite of psych-out splendour for Riot Season that stretches out for more than half an hour. Sustained rhythms provide a sturdy bed for freewheeling sax, bubbling synths and textural guitar tones that merge into a wholly satisfying, dare we say funky variation on the kosmische tradition.

Krause
2am Thoughts

Krause is a dirty alliance made up of alumni of bands including Casual Nun, Straighthate and Progress Of Inhumanity, and they play fierce and filthy noise-rock in vintage style. It really does sound blasted and distort-damaged to hell. 2am Thoughts is their debut release, and it’s out on Riot Season in a limited edition of 250 LP copies.

Shit & Shine
Teardrops

Sh*t and Shine are very prolific but are they prolifically good? Well, yes in the main however this latest release could test some of their supporters to breaking point. It's a grindcore album. One look at the waveform for the soundcloud album sampler will tell you this is very noisy, very heavy stuff. Think Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror. Those sorts. The press release promises that it will 'ruin your weekend'.  It's gone further than that, my whole week is in tatters.
