Psych-folk


IT’S BEEN all of eight years now since Cambridgeshire post-folk collective Fuzzy Lights have graced our ears with an album, that being Rule Of Twelfths; but the planets have aligned favourably for such a sonic missive and, scrying the near future, their fourth album of atmospheric acid-folk, Burials, will be handed down to us come …

A HIATUS of eight years hasn’t dimmed Fuzzy Lights as mysterious musical force, not one bit; quite the opposite, in fact. They’ve a new album, Burials, out at the end of next week, and we can reveal that on Burials they push way, way out beyond folk, incorporating the fire and the flame of post-rock …

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.

Australian by birth but based in London, Michael is about to release a six-track album, the rather lovely Strange Time. Quickly following his debut EP, Last …

TROUBADOUR genius touched by the hand of the Tim Buckley, collaborator on some very fine albums, sole architect of yet other records that fall very much in that same category, and one of the funniest tweeters in music, Ryley Walker has just dropped a new track, “Axis Bent”, from his early April album Course In …

MF TOMLINSON, the project of London-based, Australian singer-songwriter Michael Tomlinson, is today taking us deeper, oh! so deeper into his particular blued Montagued Terrace with a new single, “Them Apples”; the second single from his debut album, Strange Time, which is out on April 9th.
