Kungens Män
Chef

Stockholm based band Kungens Män have stepped things up a notch. Their previous album, Fuzz på svenska, was a more gentle, more jazzy affair. Chef (meaning 'boss' in Swedish) meanwhile is loud, fuzzy and droning. Very dense and very loud psychedelic jams presented as four lengthy tracks. On Riot Season.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
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.

Workin' Man Noise Unit
It's Not Nothin'

Riot Season (Acid Mothers Temple, Shit And Shine) with another slab of loud here. This one comes courtesy of Reading rockers Workin’ Man Noise Unit. On sophomore LP It’s Not Nothin’ the group show off a sound rooted in hardcore punk that also shows a penchant for the noisy and the psychy. Fugazi, very much so. Furthermore, Shellac. Oh go on, you can have a bit of Jesus Lizard too.

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.

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.

Dead Otter
Bridge Of Weird

Glasgow's Dead Otter are here and about to set the controls for the heart of Stoner Space, via their debut LP Bridge Of Weird. These guys have been rocking (slowly), since 1995 so it's about time they pulled their fingers out, the work-shy slackers! They have been inspired by fellow musicians of their ilk: Sabbath, Hillage, Hawkwind etc. You may remember one of their guitarists -- Omar Aborida also appears in his other band, The Cosmic Dead. So this should be appropriately trippy, warped and loud. Limited LP (300 copies) on Riot Season.

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.

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.
  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP067)

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.

Hey Colossus
Happy Birthday


  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP61)

HIBUSHIBIRE
Freak Out Orgasm!

Hibushibire are a Japanese psych band who are precisely as wild as the name of their debut album Freak Out Orgasm! would suggest. The band engage with the various strands of Japan’s rich psych heritage throughout the record (which was produced by Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple!), and the four tracks are full of flaring guitar and rad shapes. Released by Riot Season on magenta vinyl.

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.
  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP066)

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.

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.

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.
  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP48)

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.

Earthling Society
Ascent To Godhead

To coincide with their Zen Bastard release of revisted old compositions Earthling Society  return to Riot Season with a full length of new improvisations. Ascent To Godhead is a more raucous take on the psychedelic/space rock with cacophonous free jazz at its heart, less of a journey inwards but out. Limited pressing.

Blown Out
New Cruiser

Wailing psych rockers Blown Out have long been offering you the audio equivalent of what it's like to be inside the belly of a giant space worm. If you've heard 'em before, you know what to expect on New Cruiser: distantly cruising guitar solos being reigned in by a dutiful, ever-still rhythm section. Controlled chaos at its best. And most sprawling.

Blown Out
Superior Venus

Heavyweight psychedelia from Newcastle’s finest, featuring members of BONG, Drunk In Hell, Khunnt and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (I told you they were heavyweight). Blown Out’s album Superior Venus is a two-track punch of dense riffage and space power released in an limited edition of 500 LPs by Riot Season.

The Cosmic Dead
Psych Is Dead

The Cosmic Dead stand out from the crowd of present-day psych-rock explorers, in that the Glaswegian band do actually sound genuinely unhinged. Psych Is Dead finds them going all the way out over the course of three lengthy tracks, each apparently improvised on a cocktail of booze, heat, and intergalactic vibes. Out on Riot Season.

  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP35)

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.
  • Vinyl LP (REPOSELP54)

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.

KHUNNT
Failures

Khünnt is a super-heavy Newcastle supergroup, including members of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Blown Out, plus the wonderful Richard Dawson! No twisted folk-song here though: Failures is a big, unrelenting slab of blasted, blackened stoner-psych. One 40 minute piece split over 2 sides of vinyl. Just 150 copies to be had!

Workin' Man Noise Unit
Play Loud

Workin’ Man Noise Unit are probably Reading’s greatest gang of noise rocking bastards. Play Loud (well obviously this should be played loud) is a direct, skronky blast of songs + noise, all sounding nice and fried. Released in a suitably psychedelic sleeve on the Riot Season label. Limited edition of 400 LP copies

Tropical Trash
UFO Rot

Grungey lo-fi indie rock from US characters Tropical Trash. UFO Rot is their latest record, and, in fact, their first full-length one. Their song modes are either short and sharp (lots of tracks here only just breach two minutes) or jammed out (the last two tracks take up the whole of Side 2). Both modes are strong. Limited LP on Riot Season.

Bad Guys
Bad Guynaecology

You just know that an album called Bad Guynaecology, with a grainy image of a very large and hairy man staring purposefully at you on the cover, is going to be a rough ride. And so it proves with this second album from Bad Guys. Heavy, grungey and probably quite sweaty. Also, obviously, lots and lots of fun.

Henry Blacker
Summer Tombs / Hungry Dogs Will Eat Dirty Puddings

Two old ‘vinyl-only’ albums from Henry Blacker become somewhat less vinyl-only by being compiled onto one CD for this release. Summer Tombs / Hungry Dogs Will Eat Dirty Puddings is typically Blacker, hard’n’sludgey noise-rock all the way through its fifteen tracks. On Riot Season.

Art Of Burning Water
Living Is For Giving, Dying Is For Getting

Local sludge lords Art of Burning Water return on their new misanthropic record 'Living Is For Giving, Dying Is For Getting', whose fiercely DIY noise -- both on and off record -- is only heard by those who seek it out. Prominent in punk, noise and grind scenes, regardless of their own particular genre, the band aim once more to be hard on the ear and heavy in the heart. 

Sloath
Deep Mountain

Four whole years after their now sold out debut, Sloath have slovenly and slowly delivered their sophomore effort. Expect slamming riffage, propulsive percussion, flithy mud-spattered rock somewhere betwixt Melvins, Harvey Milk and Bardo Pond. In short a doom rock party -- but doom rock parties never happen in short, now do they?

Blown Out
Drifting Way Out Between Suns

Psychedelic rock that's been blown out of a cannon into the sky, with guitar riffs that sound like Nicolas Cage when he does one of his loud, drawn out groans -- that's an adequate description of BLOWN OUT, the all-caps band made from a variety of other rising heavy guitar zombies, including Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. Here's their new record, 'Drifting Way Out Between Suns'. Jam hard.

2015 vinyl release of the 2006 album Jealous of Shit and Shine comes on neon pink 12” vinyl with PVC sticker, limited to 300 copies. wall to wall distorted breaks and mind melting avantgarde, Shit and Shine always hold that ability to mix the bizarre with a tone of pure fun over the top. Side A consisting as one 24 minute long song and the B side their trashier, catchy side.
