Earthling Society ‘England Have My Bones’ LP/CS/DD 2014

31st July 2014 at 10:38 am

Earthling Society

How’s about some roaring pagan magick-music to wet your summertime whistle? Earthling Society’s long-delayed platter of lysergic love-cookies (four of them) comes dusted with the musical equivalent of popping candy. Of course, like all good med-heads, they’re into the classic Teutonic grooves of Can…

Wooden Shjips ‘Back To Land’ CD/LP/DD 2013

3rd December 2013 at 11:08 am

Wooden Shjips

Back To Land, the fourth album from San Francisco-based psychedelic rock quartet Wooden Shjips is, unfortunately, a frustratingly pedestrian affair. Listening back to their 2007 Holy Mountain debut and Dos, you can hear that the band’s formula hasn’t changed much over the years, but…

Aqua Nebula Oscillator ‘Spiritus Mundi’ CD/DD 2013

25th November 2013 at 8:39 am

Aqua Nebula Oscillator

If, like me, you’ve ever been curious (stoned) enough to wonder ‘what would it sound like inside Jim Morrison’s dying brain in his bathtub in Paris in 1971?’ Euphoric? Spacey? Fuzzy? Perhaps even slightly French? Aqua Nebula Oscillator’s superb new collection ‘Spiritus Mundi’ goes…

The Oscillation ‘From Tomorrow’ CD/LP/DD 2013

1st October 2013 at 8:14 am

The Oscillation

I have been looking forward to this, the third album by The Oscillation and can I start by simply saying it has been worth the wait. They start where they left off, awakening with a chant like quality, from the opening track ‘Corridor (Part…

Carlton Melton ‘Always Even’ CD/LP/DD 2013

30th September 2013 at 11:59 am

Carlton Melton

Warmth has covered me; it is a lullaby to a lost age that Carlton Melton’s ‘Always Even’ displays here. We meander the space between the needle and the ear on the first track ‘Slow Wake’, the prelude to something bigger that is about to…

Monomyth – S/T – CD/LP/DD 2013

24th September 2013 at 9:17 am

Monomyth - S/T

This is the first album from the Dutch quintet Monomyth, a purely instrumental metal journey from light into the dark and back again. My first port of call whenever listening to something new is to slam on my headphones and listen to it until…

Mind Mountain – S/T – Digital EP 2013

11th September 2013 at 9:27 am

Mind Mountain - S/T

I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen Mind Mountain a couple of times, and I have always enjoyed their brand of heavy blues, jam out acid rock, for, well since I can remember. So, it is always at this point that I start to…

4th September 2013 at 8:55 am

Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno

Acid Mothers Temple and its many, many offshoots have being challenging underground psychedelia for some years now. Formed in 1995 by inimitable frontman Kawabata Makoto (who has being tripping off this type of music since the 70s) Acid Mothers Temple have released consistently brilliant…

Gunslingers ‘Massacre-Rock Deviant Inquisitors’ 12″ 2013

26th August 2013 at 9:33 am

Gunslingers

While it’s undoubtedly fair to say that France’s Gunslingers are a rock & roll band at heart, it’d perhaps be more accurate to say that they’re a little bit different from the usual leather jacketed garage rock mob that also try to fly the…

Master Musicians Of Bukkake ‘Far West’ CD/LP 2013

22nd August 2013 at 9:29 am

Master Musicians Of Bukkake

Those mysterious psychedelic krautrock tricksters, the Master Musicians Of Bukkake, finally finish their journey through the mystic east, as documented on their Totem trilogy of LP’s, only to head back upon themselves via the furthest reaches of the far west in search of new…
