Earthless / Harsh Toke – Split – CD/LP/DD 2016

23rd May 2016 at 6:53 pm

Earthless / Harsh Toke - Split

I’ll admit it: I’m an addict. It’s got to the point now with new Earthless releases that I literally get giddy like a toddler in a sandpit every time a new one sails by atop of my newsfeed. New splits, new albums, new live…

23rd December 2015 at 7:08 pm

Pyramidal / Domo

How many lush records do you own? Do you need another Air? Another Zero7, fit for sparking romantic interests and long summer nights? Maybe you need something to replace your dusty and scratched copy of Welcome To Sky Valley, its fifth track Space Cadet…

Carlton Melton ‘Out To Sea’ CD/LP

11th June 2015 at 7:46 pm

Carlton Melton

They call it Dome Rock. Improvised, experimental, instrumental, psychedelic movements built out of drums, guitar, bass, and (in the case of their latest release only occasional) synthesisers. They call themselves Carlton Melton and on the bio page of their website there’s an adroit little…

Domadora ‘Tibetan Monk’ CD/DD 2013

6th March 2014 at 9:49 am

Domadora

The ever-elusive alpha brainwave. This state of consciousness (or semi-unconsciousness) has been the focal point of traditional meditative practices and is considered by some to be the doorway to true creative inspiration, outer body experiences, astral projection, and third eye insights. This emphasis on…

Eddie Brnabic & The Cosmic Fellowship ‘Subtle Realms’ DD 2013

25th January 2014 at 10:55 am

Eddie Brnabic & The Cosmic Fellowship

While deeply immersed in winter and with drone artists on constant rotation a tendency I have is to do a Michael Gira and dive deep into repetitive waves of sound. Today I found a cure for this behavior. Eddie Brnabic and his Cosmic Fellowship…

Jinko Vilova ‘Cru’ CD/DD 2013

6th December 2013 at 9:50 am

Jinko Vilova

When the link to this record popped into my inbox, I was completely digging the press-kit quotes. ‘influenced by German psychedelia, post-punk, motor city and free improvisation’? These are my favourite buzzwords bands could possibly use. The only problem is, a lot of bands…

Wo Fat ‘The Black Code’ CD/LP/DD 2012

15th March 2013 at 11:44 am

Wo Fat

The word “thick” in the English language has a few uses. It can mean stupid, it can mean something that has great physical depth yet in the case of this new album from Texan groove masters it is a suitable adjective to describe their…

Blaak Heat Shujaa ‘The Storm Generation’ CD/LP/DD 2012

15th February 2013 at 10:08 am

Blaak Heat Shujaa

Blaak Heat Shujaa is one of those names that you hear a lot but not one I’ve actively sought out to investigate, and quite possibly may not have if it weren’t for this review. Notwithstanding my ignorance as to their output and history they…

Spectral Haze – Demo 2012

Spectral Haze - Demo 2012

Right, well today I present to you a spanking new space-rock/jam band. No, don’t go away, these guys are actually GOOD! They’ve written songs, honest! OK, facetious introduction aside, this isn’t another run-of-the-mill space-rock/jam band. There’s a lot of folks that churn out unimaginative…

Bardo Pond ‘Yntra’ (Latitudes Session) CD/LP 2012

16th November 2012 at 9:53 am

Bardo Pond ‘Yntra’ (Latitudes Session) CD/LP 2012

After eight full-length albums, the psych-rock troupe known as Bardo Pond delivers another great befuddled head feast of a (mini) album for you to ponder, grin, panic and dribble over. This three-track release is part of Southern imprint’s Latitudes, which only releases recordings made…
