Sweat Lodge ‘Talismana’ CD/LP/DD 2015

22nd September 2015 at 7:01 pm

Sweat Lodge

To be honest, when I first heard the name Sweat Lodge, my initial reaction was: “Ewwww, really?!” I mean yeah, sure, granted, I do frequently choose to spend my evenings hanging out in bars characterised by their sticky floors, the loud, live scuzzy music…

Kadavar ‘Berlin’ CD/LP/DD 2015

Hot Lunch

Hot Lunch – UK psychedelic lynchpin Julian Cope once said flattering words about them. So flattering, in fact, that his devotees (myself included) immediately checked them out. Turns out he was right (isn’t he always?) Since their formation, they’ve been picking up plaudits and…
