ROY is how Toronto psych scenester Patrick Lefler likes to get dressed for a night on the town, all paisley finery, hookahs and a knack with a lazily excellent dream of Pepperland. He plies his excellent trade for Idée Fixe, a label which noted its first encounter with ROY’s aesthetic while ploughing through the demo …

AS PART of its continuing sifting of absolute gems already in the catalogue, Matador has announced its marking the quarter-century of Bardo Pond’s none-more-hallucinogenic debut for the label (and the band’s sixth overall, by a Discogs reckoning), Amanita, will be getting an empurpled and deluxe anniversary edition pressing, out October 8th. Good news for major …

Matt Berry has celebrated a decade being signed with groundbreaking, eclectic record label Acid Jazz, as well as marking his subsequent album, via his new single ‘Abroad’. The ever-prolific musician/actor released his highly acclaimed ‘Phantom Birds’ album just last year – arguably his greatest yet – and the follow-up will be released later this year. …

AN AMALGAM of Goat and Hills members, two of the multitude of unique, almost fantastical Swedish psych bands, DJINN recently released a new track “Love Divine”, which features on upcoming album Transmission. This follows swift consecutive releases: their self-titled album in 2019 and the Avant de Servir cassette, released on Swedish label Zeon Recordings last …

Picked up by Chris Kirkley of Sahel Sounds who sent Mdou a much needed left handed Strat, then …

RECENTLY signed to FatCat Records, France’s The Psychotic Monks have shared “Closure” ahead of the release of their second album, Private Meaning First, set for release via the Brighton based label.  A visceral racket of gothic-stained psychedelia meets cacophonous post-punk, The Psychotic Monks whirl up a distorted racket that’s like a cauldron of Girl Band …

Seemingly heavily inspired by the sound of the 60’s and recorded by Kevin Basko (Foxygen, The Lemon Twigs), Cherry Parke the moniker of Will Wiggins hailing from New Jersey has dropped ‘Captain Bullseye’ and b-side ‘All Around the Moon’. ‘Captain Bullseye’ itself is a baroque pop, psychedelic-pop carnival reminiscent of Brian Wilson, Margo Guryan and …

There must be hallucinogens in the Australian waters as the newest wave of psychedelic acts coming from the land down under continues to sweep across the international shores.

Djo, the alias of musician-actor wunderkind Joe Keery, released a spectacular debut album last September. This was put out surreptitiously, with very little promotion or fanfare, and without a label. Despite this, the album has earned upwards of 40 million streams, a testament to the music’s undoubtable wonder. Released with equal surprise, new single Keep …
