Wilding‘s flights of fancy are a delightful and mesmerising distraction from our troubled times – psychedelic, jangling vignettes of everyday life delivered with a compassionate eye and a wry exposition. His album last year – ‘The Death of Foley’s Mall’ made my list of top albums released in Australia/New Zealand last year, and the first …

WHILST, in other, less trippy lives, being a perfectly tessellated and readymade rhythm section for acts including Sinead O’Brien, Geowulf, Nick Waterhouse et al, bassist David Bardon and drummer Oscar Robertson have also began dreaming up a more hallucinatory life as Sunglasses for Jaws, under which disguise they’ve been quietly active on the London psych scene …

Brooklyn based psych rock septet Evolfo have shared their new single ‘Give Me Time’ taken from their sophomore full-length, Site Out Of Mind, to be released 18 June via Royal Potato Family. Expanding on the usual psych rock cocktail of phasers, fuzz, and echo, Evolfo blends in an array of less typical tones and textures such as …

Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers announce their new EP, Hologram, will be released on 16th July on founding member Oliver Ackermann’s label Dedstrange. Hologram is the anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Pinned and will be capped by a world tour in early 2022. In 2003, A Place To Bury Strangers emerged on the scene out of Ackermann’s psychotropic …

Manchester Psych Fest has today revealed the full line up for its return on 4 September 2021. It includes Malian rebel rockers Tinariwen as co-headliners with Stereolab, feted post-punk outfit Dry Cleaning, afrobeat eight-piece Kokoroko and Japanese psych veterans Kikagaku Moyo. Elsewhere on the bill Billy Nomates, Porridge Radio, Jadu Heart, Crack Cloud, Pins, Los Bitchos and The Mysterines join a mighty bill that already features Stealing Sheep, …

AXIS: SOVA began, as many excellent bands do, as a means to a gigging end (see similarly colonised TEKE::TEKE over at Kill Rock Stars, for example). Brett, the Sova of the equation, was watching his previous outfit Mass Shivers enter its death throes – we’re talking back in 2009 here; and having been offered an opening …

There is one thing patently obvious when listening to Methyl Ethel’s new single ‘Neon Cheap’: this is a band forging it’s own aural adventure and the result is something that is quite unique and highly impressive. Sweeping along on an almost funky flow – gently splashing guitars and a off-beat rhythm – the vocals are …

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 …

Flowing Fades is the second Saccades album from The KVB’s Nicholas Wood and is out this week via Fuzz Club Records. Where Wood’s work in The KVB (Invada Records) trades in minimalist post-punk/coldwave, the Manchester-based artist’s solo material under the Saccades moniker is an exercise in escapist psychedelic pop. On Flowing Fades we find a …

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 …
