We wrote about the former Spanish two piece (now expanded to a quartet) with their debut track Dreaming. They’ve returned onto our radar with a new single, The Freak Kingdom. There’s very little to add about the band (either they like skulking in the ‘mysterious’ sections, or they just haven’t put that much information up …

Yes, you’re right, he’s fucking cool. J.Mascis, the Spinosaurus of Dinosaur Jr., is following this year’s solo LP “Tied to a Star” with a special single release.  Timed for the special Black Friday version of Record Store Day, the 7” single on Sub Pop will be a cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” backed …

D.I.D, formerly known as Dog Is Dead, have returned with a brand new single to remind us that they’re still making music and that they shouldn’t be forgotten about just yet. The Nottingham boys have been fairly quiet since their début album, All Our Favourite Stories, which got them noticed far and wide when it …

Fresh from a great showcase at this year’s Liverpool PsychFest, the label have recently released a slew of great singles from Sudakistan and Lucern Raze, and now comes a great bit of psychedelic pop from Stockholm’s Anti Pony in the shape …
