I’d like to think that everybody knows the song 1967 hit ‘Fire’ (but then again we now live in a world where Paul McCartney is bafflingly seen by some as an unknown chancer hanging onto Kanye West’s coat-tails). The long haired proto-Alice Cooper with a flaming chalice on his head roaring the words: “I am …

Berlin-based Miro Denck, otherwise known as TWÏNS, has a new record arriving at the end of the month (pushed back from April). He’s shared three songs from The Human Jazz already, and today unveils a loosie that pays tribute to Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda, tipping the hat to (and rearranging) a certain piece of hers in …

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 …

We are infinitely pleased to premiere the new single from those chameleons of indie rock, Brisbane band Fingerless. This band continues to defy definition and, in their new single ‘You Are Going To Die’, even gravity, in their fascinating output. Following on from their last single – the magnificent ‘Leaf of Stone’ (see my review …

The radiant sunshine from Western Australia includes in one of its incandescent beams the brilliant Tame Impala: those world conquering psychedelic wonders jet propelled by the stupendously talented Kevin Parker.

There have been rumours circulating all year, but it’s official now: a collaboration between two giants of the Australian indie scene – Steve Kilbey from The Church and Glenn Bennie from the Underground Lovers has resulted in a new album, ‘Sakura Flower’ under the name of Bennie’s side project GB3. ‘Sakura Flower’ has added input …

Skybelly (the nom de plume of Sara Nelson) has just released her stunning debut album, ‘A Space Tramp Odyssey’: a widely evocative and creative magnus opus which is a deep and rich concept album. Operatic and dramatic in nature, it is a stunningly brave debut which adeptly creates an alternate reality that is steeped in …

Silk Cut is a magical Auckland dream pop/shoegaze band that has just released their debut EP ‘astronaut’, and while the band is a brand new piece of clothing, it is formed from vintage material. Singer/guitarist Andrew Thorne has played with Modern Chair – a collaboration between him and another veteran of the NZ music scene, Wayne …

If you’re not a fan of strange-textured foods or seeing said strange-textured foods thrown in faces, we’d recommend you tab out of this new Phantom Limb clip and treat yourself to the audio-only experience. If you are, well, this video is a treat. Led by Andrew Laningham, the Alabama quartet’s new song tackles the pervasive …

DEWEY MAHOOD, the atmospheric psychedelic guitarist who released his twelfth album as Plankton Wat for Thrill Jockey, Future Times, in late February, has dropped the shroom-surreal video for one of that excellent album’s standout tracks, “Modern Ruins”, a track all garlanded about with echo and twang-shimmer and flutes – you can watch that below.
