Matt Valentine
Preserves

Matt Valentine is taking a break from his project with partner Erika Elder known as Mv & EE. His solo album, Preserves, was seemingly recorded in space where occasional blues grooves and Pink Floyd-style pleasantries burst out from ethereal synths and stardusted noises. A number of people have contributed to this cosmic jam - J. Mascis, P.G. Six, Willie Lane, and the aforementioned Erika Elder and many more.

Garcia Peoples
One Step Behind

Consisting of just two tracks, one of which is the astonishing 32-minute title song, One Step Behind sees Garcia Peoples release their third studio album in just over 18 months. The album’s ingenuity is down to the group’s two songwriters, Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki, who show how many influences and themes they’re able to contain in one structure and still keep it coherent.

One Eleven Heavy
Desire Path

One Eleven Heavy are a country-rock band comprised of Hans Chew along with people who have played with Wooden Wand and Royal Trux. They operate in that slack groove occupied by The Allman Brothers and early-70s Rolling Stones. The band take their name from a short story about a plane crash. This seems to have jinxed them. In the two years spent writing and recording their second album, Desire Path, the band have been through a number of near-death experiences. Adds an edge to the music, I guess.

Prana Crafter & Tarotplane
Symbiose

A split album featuring a side-long composition each from Prana Crafter and Tarotplane, Symbiose is an apt title. Respectively crafting ‘Jagged Mountain Melts At Dawn’ on side A and ‘We Move Slowly Through The Past’ on the flip, the two pieces connect American underground electronica with old-fashioned European independent music.

Kikagaku Moyo
Forest Of Lost Children

Kikagaku Moyo improvise like they're falling through a black hole and can jam forever, and so Forest of Lost Children is just a snippet of their work together, a record that explores their meandering psych and folk workouts and picks out the best bits. This record buoys an Eastern influence and favours a frenetic clash of sounds over particular arrangements. They still sound tight, though.

De Lorians
De Lorians

De Lorians are a bunch of prog-loving psych-jazzers from Japan. That’s probably enough info for you to go on as to whether you’re going to dig the group’s eponymous debut LP. If this is the sort of thing you’re into then you’re going to get plenty of joy from the Tokyo quintet’s fusion freakouts. Wethinks Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart would have approved of De Lorians.

Dire Wolves
Grow Towards The Light

Dire Wolves are led by Jeffrey Alexander, who, among other projects has been a member of Jackie-O Motherfucker and run the label, Secret Eye Records. Dire Wolves have a slew of releases behind them, although, Grow toward The Light, is only their 4th full-length album. Expect spacey jams for the laid back.

Prana Crafter
Bodhi Cheetah's Choice

Bodhi Cheetah’s Choice by Prana Crafter is an album that intends to evoke the feeling of a woodland walk via the medium of acid folk. William Sol, the man behind the music, often tramps through the woods in his native Washington State. Fans of Six Organs of Admittance, Popol Vuh, late ‘60s John Fahey and Grateful Dead’s early ‘70s bootlegs will happily lose themselves in this.

Tengger
Spiritual 2

Pan-Asian travelling family band Tengger return with Spiritual 2. This time, the visual and musical focus seems to be the Japanese mountain of Ishizuchi, and that one is nothing if not steeped in spirituality. Joyous new age drones, krauty beats and wordless female vocals accompanied by harmonium and toy instruments.

Garcia Peoples
Natural Facts

It probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn, with a name like Garcia Peoples, that the New Jersey band are influenced by The Grateful Dead. The band are built on intertwining guitars and lengthy jams. They mix this classic rock fixation with the lop-sided approach of bands such as Pavement, which make them a rather interesting prospect. Natural Facts is their second album. On Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Heaters
Suspended Youth

An album a year? No problem. Consider it done. Here’s Grand Rapids, Michigan psych/garage quartet Heaters, now on their fourth LP since 2015. Still, a lot happens in four years and the lyrics throughout newun Suspended Youth seem to reflect an increasing awareness of the passage of time. Sorry to report, band of twentysomethings, but it only gets worse!

Bart De Paepe
Pagus Wasiae

Bart De Paepe’s debut album for Belgian label Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, Pagus Wasiae, channels Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Taj Mahal Travellers and the most ethereal works of Pink Floyd. His dynamic use of synths, guitars and understated beats creates an album that you can wrap yourself up in and forget about the world outside. LP on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Our Solar System
Origins

'Origins' is the third album from Swedish collective Our Solar System, a beautifully revealing and transparent record that effortlessly weaves together the band's animalistic power and more serene, compelling vibes. This is an intense and mysterious album that riffs on psychedelia and jazzy experimentalism.

Joel Gion
Joel Gion

The Brian Jonestown Massacre tambourine batterer Joel Gion returns with another solo album where he marshals a troupe of his talented musician pals to concoct an album of calm and collected psych vibes. Expect sun-glassed and laid back sounds from this master of studied cool. Enormous sideburns essential. 

Heaters
Matterhorn

On their fourth album, Matterhorn, Michigan-based psych-rockers, Heaters have aimed high. They want to trump previous creative successes such as Holy Water Pool and Baptistina with their dynamic and precisely crafted sound. Since the aforementioned Baptistina, Heaters are re-energised by a line-up reshuffle with founding member Andrew Tamlyn leaving to form Fyrrh.

Ancient Ocean
Titan’s Island

Released on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond, Titans Island is the second full-length album from Ancient Ocean. Exploring the sounds of Modern Classical music alongside Minimalism and Sound Art, the four tracks on this LP come together to build a diverse and strange land through which to roam; both beautiful and enthralling, it is a finely crafted experience.

The Myrrors
Hasta La Victoria

Meandering psychlords the Myrrors release so many sleepytime groove records you'd think they actually never for one second stopped jamming. They follow up Entranced Earth with another outing of evergreen patience, moving slowly through five open-world songs of stretched out guitar-wahing goodness.

Dire Wolves
Excursions To Cloudland

We've already had Dire Straits but now we have Dire Wolves a collective of '60s influenced dreamers who take influences from Pink Floyd and the Incredible String Band and apply them to their particular brand of freakery. With just four very long tracks, Excursions to Cloudland promises to be the sort of trip you might never return from.

Sundays & Cybele
Chaos & Systems

Sundays & Cybele are a super-psychedelic outfit who pluck their moves from the Japanese scene, from prog-rock, and from 60’s acid dudes among others. Crucially, Chaos & Systems is psychedelic as opposed to psych: there is plenty of air and love in this epic record’s atmosphere. CD and LP editions on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Sam Kogon
Psychic Tears

Sam Kogon’s Psychic Tears has the feel of a vintage obscurity that didn’t get its dues in the 1970’s. And yet this is a brand new release! So give it those dues straight away. Psychic Tears is a lively alt-pop suite that fizzes with energy and melody and carries the stamp of old New York. Released by Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Chocolat
Rencontrer Looloo

Chocolat describe their new album as a coming together of “hard jazz and surf metal”, which puts them into pretty rare territory. Rencontrer Looloo, recorded after some time away, finds Chocolat merrily doing their own thing with gnarly guitars and proggish rhythms. It's released by the Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label.

Drakkar Nowhere
Drakkar Nowhere

Bringing together members of Phenomenal Handclap Band, Favored Nations, and Dungen by means of an impromptu kitchen jam session Drakkar Nowhere produce proggy and jazzy tinged soul tracks straight from a psychedelic past. Space organs and lazy walking bass lines, timeless pieces where the journey is the destination.

The Myrrors
Entranced Earth

Join The Myrrors for another trip into the outer cosmic psych-ways: they know a good short-cut. Entranced Earth, their third album is plenty spaced-out, although without the sonic flab one sometimes encounters on sets like these: The Myrrors are laser-focused on reaching those peaks. On Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Eerie Wanda
Hum

Eerie Wanda is a project led by Marina Tadic, working with a band that includes members of Jacco Gardner’s group. Hum, the debut collection from the project, is a softly-spoken yet weighty thing, each song bouncing along but with a melancholy undercurrent. CD and LP editions available, on the Beyond Beyond is Beyond label.

Midday Veil
This Wilderness

Midday Veil are a funky bunch of characters, augmenting their personal brand of out-rock with large amounts of synth-magic and cosmic disco grooves. The Wilderness features guest spots from Eyvind Kang, Skerik, and the actual Berne Worrell, of P-Funk and Stop Making Sense era Talking Heads. On Beyond Beyond is Beyond.

Heaters
Holy Water Pool

The Heaters are keen to let you know that they are big fans of ‘60s surf bands. However, it’s not something you’d necessarily know from their Holy Water Pool album. In parts it is reminiscent of Pink Floyd and any surf influences are heavily wrapped in swirling, epic indie rock. Available on vinyl LP and CD.

Coke Weed
Mary Weaver

Coke Weed plunge bodily into the sounds of Bowie-era Berlin for this record, ending up with a sharp and shiny dance part for post-punk art-squats. Mary Weaver is the group’s fourth record, and powerfully combines dead-eyed vocals with body-moving rhythm. Released by the Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label.

Ancient Ocean
Blood Moon

Ancient Ocean sound very much as you’d expect Ancient Ocean to sound like. Slotting next to your Kranky and Low Point records, Blood Moon is a swirling, droning affair that leaves you swimming in a rich sea of aural delight. Dip your toe and you’re soon immersed. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Beyond Is Beyond.
