WE’VE thrilled to the stream of Japanese psych bands that have been melting our heads over the past few decades – Acid Mothers Temple, Ghost, Bo Ningen, Kikagaku Moyo; embraced fully and irrevocably Japanese ambient formalism, in the shape of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Chihei Hatekeyama, et al.

HAILING from Cambridge with a potent elixir of acid/post-folk, Fuzzy Lights are moving towards the release of their first full-length set in more than eight years with the full-on drone-psych pastoralism of their new single, “Under The Waves”; the video for which we have right here. It’s the second teaser the fenlands five-piece have revealed …

You know what the best thing about Keys is; for all its intimacy, the focus wholly on how the two players and their instruments mesh,a real joy in creation rings through. William Tyler, Black Twig Pickers, Jack Rose fans; please come on over and pull up a pew

WITH her stunning, graceful, mysterious debut album out tomorrow on Keeled Scales, Louisianan folk riser musician Renée Reed has dropped a fourth and final single to usher you into the scented finery of her world; watch the video for “I Saw A Ghost” below. “I Saw A Ghost” rings true with the four-track ambience which pervades her home-recorded …

IT’S STILL pretty weird out there right now, right? I think it’s getting better; thank the sweet lord for the gift of music. And one area in which 2021 is shaping up to be really interesting year is in the field of solo Americana musicians who’ve been carving their own, unspooling instrumental path coming out …
