Yuri Gagarin – S/T – LP/DD 2013

15th January 2014 at 9:18 am

Yuri Gagarin - S/T

Yuri Gagarin, according to all non-Biblical, non-religious sources, was the first human to enter space. He died in 1968. Now if you take 1968 as a year in music, you have iconic releases by Silver Apples & The Velvet Underground, two releases apiece by…

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…

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…

Haikai No Ku ‘Sick On My Journey’ LP/CD/DD 2013

15th August 2013 at 9:49 am

Haikai No Ku

There are artists whose whole reputation hangs on one stupendous work – a painting, song or film that stands out as a singular achievement within the context of their output; case in point, Chubby Checker’s (deserved) reputation hinges on him having sung the most…

White Hills

Hungrily prolific New York Psychedelickers White Hills’ seventh album brings together the obvious talents of three lovers of space exploration (both outer and inner worlds) via the medium of rock music and electronica and simultaneously represents a continued success for this undoubtedly special band…

Samsara Blues Experiment ‘Live At Rockpalast’ CD 2013

20th July 2013 at 10:58 am

Samsara Blues Experiment

The live album is an interesting concept. Very often these will do little to entice new fans and appeal more to a band’s more hardcore audience who wish to relive the memories of past concert trips. At the same time they serve as a…

11Paranoias ‘Superunnatural’ LP/CD/DD 2013

18th July 2013 at 9:29 am

11Paranoias

If you think about it, 11 as a number is really rather sinister. Trapped somewhere between the chauvinistic metricality of 10 and the likeable divisibility of 12, her two stark and lonely obelisks plummet both simultaneously upward to the magical resolutions of the universe…

The Heavy Company ‘Midwest Electric’ CD/DD 2013

9th June 2013 at 10:24 am

The Heavy Company

Rock and roll by its very nature is a primitive beast. It’s music from the heart, the groin and from the gut. Over the years it has mutated into a multi faceted beast that sees bands such as Rush and Muse employing all the…
