Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Minstrel In The Galaxy

'Minstrel In The Galaxy' by Japanese experimental psychedelic rockers Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O was originally released in 2004 on CD only. It featured a newly trimmed line up and their sound was more stripped back and darker, gradually preparing the listener for the gigantic crescendo. This is the first vinyl release of the album.

USA/Mexico
Matamoros

Good to see the two countries putting their wall differences aside and coming together for a collaborative LP. This of course isn't the entire population of the USA and Mexico but a collaboration between Craig Clouse (Shit & Shine), King Coffey (Butthole Surfers) and Nate Cross (Marriage, When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth). They seem obsessed with hi-fi shops and the LPs used as demonstrations for their high end wares.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
