Conny Ochs ‘Future Fables’ CD/LP 2016

8th March 2016 at 7:42 pm

Conny Ochs

There’s a tendency for many to underestimate those artists who choose to ‘strip back’ as lacking complexity. Conny Ochs’ latest offering, Future Fables, is certainly stripped back, but it definitely isn’t simple. Full of rich, emotional depths, solid songwriting and nods to its varied…

Mothership ‘Mothership II’ CD/LP/DD 2014

16th December 2014 at 11:41 am

Mothership

First off, man, I gotta say, I dig this mother, I really really dig this mother mother.  This Mothership II album by Mothership.  This BallsOut-Absolute-StonedOut-Late 60s-70s-Fuzzbox-Psychedelic-Fantasy-Metal.  Not a real genre, yeah, but I was trying to sort of concisely think of things to sum…

Shield Your Eyes ‘Reciprocate’ LP/DD 2014

13th December 2014 at 12:15 pm

Shield Your Eyes

For the unaware, Shield Your Eyes have been kicking out their distinctive math-rock blues for a good few years now, lo-fi, sinuous and with a kick of London soul thrown in for good measure, and six albums in they aren’t moving in any directions…

Jess And The Ancient Ones ‘Castaneda’ 10″ 2014

28th October 2014 at 9:26 am

Jess And The Ancient Ones

Jess And The Ancient Ones are one of these bands that you just get, or you don’t. The whole female-fronted occult rock/doom movement is, for better or for worse, losing a bit of steam and the best bands, the cream, is rising to the…

Mellow Bravo ‘RiPPER’ Digital EP 2013

19th October 2013 at 12:53 pm

Mellow Bravo

When Mellow Bravo’s debut full length landed last year I was immediately hooked by the band’s schizophrenic take on classic rock and roll. The album rocked hard but pulled from many facets of rock and roll history to drive up avenues that embraced country,…

Ape Machine ‘Mangled By The Machine’ CD/LP/DD 2013

18th June 2013 at 9:11 am

Ape Machine

“There is no art to find the mind’s construction in the face” Sorry for hitting you with some Shakespeare in a rock review but this quote from King Duncan in Macbeth pretty well sums up the Ape Machine experience. On the face of it…

4th June 2013 at 9:47 am

Pet The Preacher

Given the interest generated by last year’s highly rated concept debut album ‘The Banjo’, Copenhagen’s own power trio of Stoner rockers Pet The Preacher have chosen to combine their Pre and Post album EP releases into a full length package that helps chart where…

Peter Green Splinter Group ‘The Very Best Of’ CD/DD 2013

31st May 2013 at 8:20 am

Peter Green Splinter Group

When it comes to guitar heroes, there are a select few that have genuinely made it to own such a heavy tag. The names Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page are the obvious choice but there were a few more that in many opinions are…

Larman Clamor ‘Frogs’ CD/LP/DD 2012

3rd March 2013 at 11:55 am

Larman Clamor

Better late than never as the saying goes. This album actually came out in 2012 and somehow passed us by at the Shaman’s lair but here it is now and thoroughly deserving of some bandwidth!!! Larman Clamor is the brain child of German artist…

Conny Ochs ‘Black Happy’ CD/LP/DD 2013

20th February 2013 at 8:46 am

Conny Ochs

German acoustic singer/songwriter Conny Ochs is not the typical style of music you’d find on The Sleeping Shaman but then Conny isn’t your typical musician. Providing a much darker take on acoustic, Conny has attracted the attention of a wealth of notable lost souls,…
