Psych-Pop


Sam Grant, guitarist and producer of the Sabbath-infused, sludgy rockers Pigs x7, first announced the arrival of his solo project Rubber Oh with the fuzz-tinged ‘Little Demon’ earlier this year. The hunger for the project has been stewing in Grant’s artistic appetite for a number of years; the long wait may be partly behind the …

No idea what Rob Erickson is doing in that press photo up there but we’d be doing the same thing if we had an album out today. Speaking of, New Yorker Erickson—otherwise known as the caps-lock key-destroying LUMBEROB—has an album out today! It’s called LANGUAGE LEARNER and it’s a hell of a trip, a 22-track …

Sounding like a fully realised trip back in time, the debut single from Curtis Godino Presents the Midnight Wishers introduces listeners to the trio under the stewardship of Godino, as they aim to recreate the feeling of 1960s girl groups with an appropriately psychedelic spin. We’re offering you the first listen of the dreamy ‘No …

He’s been drip-feeding us new music over several years but the Berlin-based Miro Denck has finally got an album on the way. Otherwise known as TWÏNS, Denck began 2021 by releasing the short and sweet ‘Velvet Dreams’, and he’s capping off the year with a pair of new songs; one of which serves as the …

HARKNESS is a beautiful musical enigma wrapped up inside a conundrum wrapped inside a rather fetching, actuellement, mask and gown; from within which couture he has a very personal line in sounds for the topsy-turvy world we’re somehow tasked with navigating right now. Having honed his craft quietly away from the spotlight for a decade …

Etai Fuchs (also of Baltimore band Moon By Moon) released his debut solo album Bloodletting in January of last year, a skeletal gem that could have passed for a live acoustic performance. Its follow-up, Summer of Ghosts, is a much more expansive affair, tipping its hat to artists like Caribou and Panda Bear. There’s also …

THE MYSTERIOUS, cloaked and visored figure you see is Harkness; as with Bob Log III, we know not who sits behind the guise. Best then to turn to what we do know; that he comes from Canada (or indeed, beyond), bearing a very special brand of baroque psychedelia, shifting through the moods and time signatures …

LONDON singer-songwriter and producer Barnaby Keen brings a little languorous neo-psych sunshine into our lives with his second single as just himself, “Trust Me”, out now on all digital streaming platforms. The tune has a vitamin-D psych-soul bliss that puts him out in the same territory as maybe Lewis Recordings’ lovely Skinshape and !K7’s James …

E.R. JURKEN is a singer-songwriter with a deeply moving, beautiful and fragile take on psych-pop with a 1968 Anglophile twist and a Neutral Milk Hotel twirl to his aesthetic, for whom Drag City have initiated a whole new boutique imprint, Country Thyme; you just know they know when they’re on to a good thing. E.R. …

IT’S SO undeniably the Mersey sound; the new single from Michael Robert Murphy, erstwhile singer with Liverpool’s ace acid/folk-rock chemists The Wicked Whispers, comes swirling into spring with his new single, “Puzzles”, keeping his head held high in the city that in recent decades has brought us Micheal Head in all his beautiful incarnations, The …
