Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have made themselves known in their vivid, exuberant careers as one of Perth’s finest exports and most inventive bands. With just enough breathing space after their fourth album ‘SHYGA! The Sunlight Mount’, they have returned with their new single ‘Lava Lamp Pisco’, a euphoric explosion of fuzz-laden guitars and intoxicating polyphony that …

Snapped Ankles were formed in 2011 out of one of east London’s warehouse communities and have continued their unimagined rise ever since. They defy convention at every turn from wearing pieces of forest to making their own instruments and with the success of their latest LP Forest of your Problems they have embarked on a …

Ride’s Mark Gardener mastering the mix through his OX4 Studio provides a gold …

Out now on Fuzz Club Records, Ungrateful Heart is the fourth album from Milan-based group The Gluts. Whilst their previous releases traded in an explosive psychedelic noise-rock, Ungrateful Heart sees the Italian four-piece hone in a more post-punk-indebted sound.

As their debut full-length on Rocket Recordings awaits release, Smote have shared the video for ‘Poleyn’, created by Rocket’s own John O’ Caroll. The track shares the album with ‘Drommon Pt.1’ and ‘Drommon Pt.2’, released as a limited tape/digital release earlier this year, as well as the previously released lead single ‘Hauberk’. Thematically focused with …

Newcastle has been a veritable hub for a wide spectrum of psych and noise, from the raw trio of Blóm to the relentless clamour of Pigs x7; the same city’s Smote offers a different, but similarly singular, vision of psych. Drommon comprises the previously released titular, two-parter, bookending new material ‘Hauberk’ and ‘Poleyn’; a more …

Ahead of their first UK tour-dates kicking off this month, Mexican five-piece Sei Still have announced their second album El Refugio and share the first single and video, ‘Extrarradio’. Due out 26 November on Fuzz Club Records, the new album – which arrives following their self-titled debut LP released in April 2020 and already on its …

Portuguese experimental trio 10 000 Russos released their fifth album Superinertia last week via Fuzz Club Records. Following on from 2019’s Kompromat and tour-dates around the UK, Europe and Mexico in support, the Porto-based band describe ‘Superinertia’ as a record addressing the “state of inertia that humans live in the West nowadays. It isn’t a …

Very active live, both in Italy and abroad, KICK are Chiara Amalia Bernardini (vocals, bass) and Nicola Mora (guitars, electric piano, synths, samplers).
