ep084 Hookworms – Away/Towards

UK band Hookworms released their debut album in October and it is a mind-blowing/mind-numbing bastion of sonic bombardment. Psychedelic jams that build, reverberate, resonate then retreat and repeat.

Pregnant – Lil by Lil


Pregnant - Pottery Mill
ep77 Pregnant – Lil by Lil

Pregnant, the musical emanations of one Daniel Trudeau, released “Pottery Mill” earlier this year- Aprilish. The psychedelic, folksy experimental soundscapes appeal to my inner psycho-folksy mountain man.

The Men – Electric

An album a year is note-worthy. . . a really good album every year for three years running is phenomenal. The Men have a new single out now and a new album “New Moon” coming out in March. Your only hurting yourself by avoiding them.

ep47 Thee Oh Sees – Lupine Dominus

Another for the Best of 2012, Thee Oh Sees album Putrifiers II kicks butt and engages your chakras with rhythmic mantras that keep the inner fire burning. Light some incense and candles then prepare to be rocked.

Moon Duo – Sleepwalker


Moon Duo – Sleepwalker~7 minutes Moon Duo’s new album “Circles” dropped on the 1st of October and is a good ride. Psychedelic, bouncing rhythmic melodies and ethereal vocals mix and mellow throughout. Check out their website – here. An excerpt from their “About” page: Inspiration for many of the songs themes, as well as the title Circles, came from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1841 essay by the same name, on the symbol and nature of “the flying Perfect.” From the opening lines: “The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.” And so it goes. Rust never sleeps.
