Relapse in September. To me, the band sounds like Alice in Chains if they had followed their track marks into a a much doomier territory. My 14 year old self would have dug the shit out of this, and i must admit, my 34 year old self will probably have "Woodbine" on repeat for a little while. Listen to that jam below.
Major props to Shawn for this find.

And here's the party starting title track.
And finally, here's the lovely and soulful "Everything is Beautiful to Me."
Sadly, Jimmy Castor passed away last year at the age of 64, but i recommend searching out his albums for that funky, funky bliss.

Good Records, the band's first record of original material since 2007. The Incubator is stoked! Listen to "Hold Yourself Up" below...and smile for the rest of the day.
Graveface Records. Listen to "Swoon" below.

The film comes from something called "The 3:07 AM Project" that was put together by Vice as an accompiament to the horror film "The Conjuring" that came out a couple weeks ago.

Monofonus Press. It sounds like something Coil would have done 25 years ago, so naturally, i'm all over it. Listen below.

"Sin of Sins" sounds like it could have been a B-side from a John Lydon project.
The band lasted until 1985 and then dispersed as bands are wont to do. Here's to me finding more records like this in my future crate digging excavations. I'll leave you with album-ender "Don't Leave Without Me."

Paradise of Bachelors just released a gold nugget in The Chance's brilliant 1981 country-funk-psych-folk masterpiece "In Search." Chance Martin started his career working with Johnny Cash as a stage hand before he went on to record this awesome LP. Take a listen to two tracks from the record below, "Mr. Freedom Man" and "Blue Monday." They're both really difficult to categorize, other than just filing them under awesome. Get the album here. Go do it now.
100% Silk. Subtle beats, muted and sampled vocals, and a repetitive throb build to reserved bliss on "Please Dont' Leave." Listen below and get the record here.

Suicide Squeeze will be releasing a 7" in the very near future featuring new jam "Dying in the Pussy," a track sure to be on the car stereos and lips of soccer moms and school administrators everywhere. Listen below.

Holodeck while they last.
Fuzz City Records. Listen to the A-side below and get the record here.
I imagine an old school circuit board with lights flashing and colors moving here and there, like walking into a scene from the original "Tron." An Atari wonderland. Now, listen to "Eyes Shade," a track that has more of a movie score thing going for it.
And here's one more called "Psychosomatique."
If you can find it, this album is definitely worth your time, especially for all of you purveyors of all things old and synthetic.

Cascine, but you can listen to first single "Recollection" below.
Holodeck. I really love it.
Holodeck, but just listen to "Gas Is Better than Gas" below. It is the sound of dropping acid in the modern world, and if it was the aforementioned casserole, it would be delicious.
Blackest Ever Black in September and listen to the 7" version of the band's "More Alone" below.
Mannequin Records keeps their hat trick of a year in check, this time around with the groovy, sun-drenched, acid-fried psych rock of Nottingham's The Cult of Dom Keller. The band's wall-of-noise self-titled album is sold out, but you can still grab the digital version here. In the meanwhile, listen to "Worlds" below.

Holodeck Records (the label responsible for one of my favorite albums of the year, Troller) are at it again with a very limited vinyl reissue of Good Stuff House's 2006 untitled album, originally released on CD-R. The album has no title and no song titles, but there really is no need for them. A sprawling work of tones, textures, and sounds, the music comes off as an Americana interpretation of drone and ambient melody. Cool, cool stuff. Listen to a sample below.
Mannequin Records, it instantly caught my ear. Part Sun City Girls, part Savage Republic, a droning, hypnotic chant of psych noise and worship, as if prepping a sacrifice for the old gods. Listen to "Black Coral" below and grab the 7" here.
Mannequin Records has been releasing a slew of good material this year. One of the latest is the reissue of Portland darkwave band Light House's 2012 "In Their Image" EP. Dark synths, ambient drone, icy vocals, and a throbbing pulse that suggests we've just met the villain in a John Carpenter movie. Listen to "Walls Want Communion" below and get the record here.

Burger Records. It sounds like something that would play during slow motion video footage of surfers. Perfect summertime listening.
Friday, July 12, 2013
here and listen to "The Death Desire" below.
Thursday, July 11, 2013
And here's "Kaya Grass."
And finally, here's the album's last song "Advice," which is my favorite.
I have to add that my favorite thing about this record is that there is an advertisement for a West Indian American restaurant in Brooklyn on the back of the album cover. The joint was (is?) called B's, i guess meaning that the restaurant and the record label were both owned by the same dude. Get your art out any way you can.
(All the above youtube tracks are occasionally interrupted by some "don't-pirate-this-music type interference. My apologies.)

In The Red. Listen to "Loose Sutres" below (courtesy of Brooklyn Vegan). Oh yeah.
Mexican Summer. Listen below.

Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus's record label), and the space-funk album art, and the fact that trippy and tribal track "All Is Well..." would sound awesome with MF Doom on top of it, i'm calling it a winner. Listen to that jam below and look for the album in August.
Weird World. Slow builds of ever increasing noise and feedback, screaming, yelling, hollering through a wall of Velvet Underground-inspired fuzzy crunch. This is the sound of staring into the sun for too long. Listen and download below.

Suicide Squeeze later this month, with the lovely release of their album, "YT//ST." It's a really cool blend of styles that makes the group sound familiar, yet totally in a nitch by themselves. Listen to "Queens" below.
