Peter Jefferies
Last Ticket Home

Peter Jeffries should possibly be more well known than he is. He was in two excellent 80s era New Zealand bands in Nocturnal Projections and This Kind of Punishment before embarking on a long and idiosyncratic solo career. Last Ticket Home is his latest album and is a collection of rare singles, unreleased tracks and live interpretations from the period 1991 to 2019  - a veritable smorgasbord of treasures showcasing his unique and singular vision.   

Roy Montgomery
Suffuse

The Pin Group/Dissolve/Dadamah member Roy Montgomery drops his latest LP via Grapefruit. Montgomery has seemingly got bored of singing after all his time in the music game. As such he lets others take centre-stage on Suffuse while he potters around in the background with his guitar and effects pedals. Julianna Barwick, She Keeps Bees and Katie von Schleicher are among the guests whose vocals are tacked on to these psych-y, shoegaze-y and very loud-y numbers.

Lullabies For Catatonics: A Journey Through The British Avant-Pop/Art Rock Scene 1967-74

Presented over three CDs in a special ‘clamshell’ box set, the Grapefruit imprint’s latest exploration of the various off-shoots of British psychedelia turns to the avant-garde pop / art-rock scene of 1967 to 1974. Lullabies For Catatonics spans everything from early Bowie to the so-called Canterbury Scene, and includes three previously unreleased tracks. 

Roy Montgomery
H: Bender

Dadamah and The Pin Group member Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy is now releasing an interlinked series of albums, titled R, M, H and Q. On H: Bender, his sound skims the edges of the collaborative work he has done with the likes of Bardo Pond, but remains firmly his own. LP on Grapefruit.

Try A Little Sunshine - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1969

The high tide of psychedelic music may have happened some two years previously, but by 1969 the scene had become more fragmented: either chart-orientated, manufactured 'bubblegum' pop or it had mutated into heavier, 'serious' rock. The British wave incorporated more eclectic sounds, so 'Sunshine' Psych was born, as heard on new Grapefruit compilation Try A Little Sunshine - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1969, encompassing 4 hours of tunes from a diverse, colourful and eventful decade end.

I Said, She Said, Ah Cid: The Exploito Psych World Of Alshire Records 1967-71

Very fine archival compilation on the Alshire label, whose business model involved getting crack LA session musicians to record sweet sweet sessions which were then released under a variety of different aliases and contexts. The music is just fabulous though, and there are three full discs of it here on I Said, She Said, Ah Cid, as well as an informative booklet. From Grapefruit.

Looking At The Pictures In The Sky - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1968

You know it’s gonna be a good psychedelic album when the soundclip makes your computer freeze from its layers of fuzzy guitar and echoed vocals. Looking At The Pictures In The Sky - The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1968 is an epic tome; a 3CD boxset with a 44-page booklet detailing the psychedelic scene over one year in Britain (and Ireland!). Tracks from The Factory, Fleur de Lys, The Barrier and Boeing Duveen give an idea of just how woozy we’re going here.

Roy Montgomery
Q: Transient Global Amnesia

Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy is now releasing an interlinked series of albums, titled R, M, H and Q. This fourth one, subtitled Transient Global Amnesia, is a real treat for fans of atmospheric guitarscapes, with languid coils of reverb all over the place. LP on Grapefruit.

Roy Montgomery
M: Darkmotif Dancehall

Dadamah and The Pin Group member Roy Montgomery hasn’t released an album in over ten years, but now that he’s decided to make a return, he’s really going for it. Roy is now releasing an interlinked series of albums, titled R, M, H and Q. The M album, which is subtitled Darkmotif Dancehall, is perhaps the most forthright of the set, with drum machines and storming riff-work.

The Garbage & The Flowers
The Deep Niche

The Garbage & The Flowers came and went so fast in the middle of the 1990’s that if you blinked, you missed it: you almost certainly don’t have one of the original 300 hand-printed copies of The Deep Niche. But, collectability aside, this is beautiful, delicate music, special enough to be kept firmly in print. This new reissue encompasses CD and vinyl, courtesy of the Grapefruit label.
