Wooden Shjips
Vol.1

Wooden Shjips are great. I loved that last album and so did you judging by the amount of you lot who bought it from us. I'm not gonna do a big review of this cos to me it's kind of been out, but here's Volume 1 by 'em which is essentially the free CD that came with the limited edition CD of the debut album. It's that album remastered with T...view item »

Wooden Shjips
Dos

I've been winding the artist formerly known as Phat Bjarry up about his "incurable obsession" with Wooden Shjips for ages now and the joke's worn so thin i'm able to poke my spotty arse right thjrough it. You see, as is normally the case, if he likes something, i'll insist it's cobblers. Like a retarded child. Actually don't mind 'Dos'' the new alb...view item »

Hiragi Fukuda
Dump

Hiragi Fukuda makes a surreal art-rock music that subverts conventional pop forms. The vinyl 7” Dump, from Holy Mountain, has the weird looping structures and repetitive deadpan vocals we really love. It also has completely out-there, distorted guitar solos smeared over everything, because...view item »

Devil Worshipper
Devil Worshipper

Out on, curiously enough, Holy Mountain, Devil Worshipper finally deliver their self-titled debut. If we’d have to wager, we’d say it’ll be heavy. As in, seriously heavy. Packed with relentless waves of noise, stomping on at the speed of a lone chopper down an empty highway, trying to run from what&rsq...view item »

Musk
Musk

Holy Mountain briefly drop their all-out psychedelic hero-worship for the no-nonsense Musk, a band of hard rockers, sludge metalheads and fuzz guitarists making hateful tunes with an unrelenting and quite unkind rhythm section. 'Musk' is noisy squalor, shooting for the rawest sludge approach possible. Whatever genre they are, they have been desc...view item »

White Manna
Dune Worship

Strangely enough I actually saw White Manna just three or four nights ago at Leedsverpool Psychfest Leeds at the Brudenell on Sunday that had all the Psychfest bands playing. Anyway, I was pretty faded and it was about midnight and I totally tranced out to these guys, who play a fairly traditional and formulai...view item »

Residual Echoes
The Middle Path

Here’s a record so ambitious I don’t even know where to start. Residual Echoes have crafted two side-long tracks on this LP which straddle the line between acid-fried psychedelic improvisations and composed passages of ‘70s inspired rock music. They make it clear from the start that it’s not for people who dislike distort...view item »

Food Pyramid
Ecstasy and Refreshment

Food Pyramid have been at it again! Actually this album came in a couple of weeks ago on CD but arrived too late in the week to get a review, but the vinyl’s in this week and boss man Phil is off so I’m throwing caution to the wind and writing about it regardless. It’s a fun record, but a diff...view item »

Hank IV
Depravity's Rainbow

7 inch singles are not really my thing to be honest, you kind of put it on and three minutes later it’s done, what’s the point? But I know a lot of you vinyl junkies out there are probably screaming at me right now!This rock ‘n’ roll punk act Hank IV make just the kind of ...view item »

Yoga

It opens at night, in a graveyard presumably, the bone-rattling groans of the undead drifting in from every side over what might be a distant organ drone. Over the moans of the dying someone frantically tries to tune a radio, hoping against hope there are more survivors elsew...view item »

Moon Duo
Silver Bells / Winter

Ripley Johnson must be bang into Christmas, and who can blame him: it's a magical time of the year that almost always involves watching Gremlins and, as a result, being reminded of how amazing Michael Sambello's 'Mega-Madness' is. What a tune. So, if the Wooden Shjips christmas 12" wasn't enough fun for you then you should be sure to check out M...view item »

James Ferraro
Discovery

Discovery is the sister album to Clear, James Ferraro's 'tropical drones concept' LP which came out a couple of weeks back, a fact underlined by the face that they've both got exactly the same artwork apart from one different word (some copies of Discovery came with the wrong sleeve, so the printers were obviously a bit confused themselves).

High Wolf
Atlas Nation

More spiritual meanderings from office favourite High Wolf. Recording in 2010 whilst in Nepal and India, it's no surprise to hear the influence of eastern percussive rhythms and sitar drones on his newy. Here we get five peaceful audio entheogen's of the less astral (than usual) and more ...view item »

James Ferraro
Clear

Funnily enough I was listening to a James Ferraro LP at home last night and thoroughly enjoyed it so it makes me happy to have 'Clear' to review. This is his "tropical drones concept" and it's a super chilled listen. Its peaceful, tranquil vibes are totally blissing me out. It reminds me a little of some early electronic music/synth stuff and ha...view item »

Ilya Monosov
Sailor Man

The new album from the guitarist of The Shining Path and one half of Monosov/Swirnoff Duo is quite a sedate listen. Which is quite a surprise, because looking at the cover you'd be damn sure you were about to embark on an epic journey into the heart of guitar darkness. The ...view item »

Future Shuttle
Water's Edge

I don't want to like this record even though I know I absolutely bloody will! It's basically a merging of future kosmische and whooshing astral ambience topped with an ethereal dreampop coating and is produced by 2-3 ladies from Green...view item »

Onna
Onna

I knew this re-released Onna 7" from 1983 would be AMAZE when I read the Holy Mountain website and it was mentioning people like Les Razilles Denudes, Stars and White Heaven.. Admittedly the latter two was only because a forthcoming compilation features early guitar work from Michio Kurihara, but still. In theory it sounds like a total treat ...view item »

Starfuckers
Metallic Disease

This record originally came out back in '89 but apparently never really found its audience, which would explain why I've never heard of these guys before. It's actually very good, though. Kind of psych-noise/proto-grunge type stuff, largely, with a bit of an experimental edge. The vocal delivery is more than a little Iggy-esque, but there's a lo...view item »

Cloudland Canyon
Fin Eaves

This shit's like uber-shoegaze. Ubergaze. Totally obscured, hazy, feedbacky and effects-laden psychedelic drift-rock that sounds as if it'd probably be totally full of hooks if only you could hear any of them. Pretty Flying Saucer Attack-ish I guess. Or maybe a bit Bardo Pond-y? It's doing a pretty good job of creating an audio equivalent to tha...view item »

Lords of Falconry
Lords of Falconry

Shit off!! You had better pass me that bong, because we are on a one way trip to the center of the sun. This sweet fucking cut is a space rock, progressive opus that intends to take you on a trip into a rock realm where the Lords Of Falconry are sitting on thrones fashoined from bones of prehistoric beasts. This album reminds me of Hawkwind in a...view item »

International Hello
International Hello

Well this is a right ace messy record. The first track just shits out of the speakers like The Heads or White Hills mixing it with early Butthole Surfers. An acid-fried psychedelic, squalling lo-fi punk splurge that almost certainly has a bit of driving Hawkwind sludge & insanity about it. I'm also getting a slightly similar vibe to that ace...view item »

Wooden Shjips
Wooden Shjips

The Wooden Shjips album is here on Holy Mountain Records. It's a 'self titled' thing and if you want to know what it sounds like it's pretty much an exact cross between The Doors, Loop and Suicide. Some tracks sound more like one of those bands than the other but they're in there somehow. It's quite fantastic how they've managed to get all of t...view item »

Wooden Shjips
Sol 07

Some Psychedelic San Francisco acid freak out tunage has just landed on a mega limited red vinyl 7" on Holy Mountain. It's by Wooden Shjips and it's like Suicide in places and The Doors in others. It's one long track split over 2 sides of the 7" which is bizarre. Its a benefit record for the SF chapter of Food Not Bombs and it's called 'S...view item »

Om
Conference Of The Birds

Om's second full-length album is a wonderfully self-assured work that illustrates how great music can be made using a very basic set-up, in this case one bass guitarist (Al Cisneros) and one drummer (Chris Hakius) playing ambiguously simple yet strong and melodic bass lines with clear and precise drumming throughout. There's just two songs on th...view item »

Variations On A Theme

OM's latest, Advaitic Songs has been getting tons of praise heaped on it, in the last year or so, with the general consensus of people agreeing that the album was a big maturing phase in the band’s sound. If that means their early albums were unsophisticated and nasty then call me a caveman, coz' I like 'em a hell of a lot more. I mean, do...view item »
