With the rise of studies into psychedelic and also their profound effects on mental health, Australians Babe Rainbow themselves might be a sonic microdose into the exploration of transformative consciousness. The Byron Bay outfit have almost quietly gone about their business in recent years as one of the finest bands on the planet, with a …

London based Saint Agnes are renowned for their visceral (and reckless) live shows, abandoning all concern for their personal safety and clambering around, all in the name of having a great time. Seeing as live shows are on hiatus for the moment, the band found a new way to shock during lockdown and have this …

The tricky thing about this Psychedelic Porn Crumpets album, particularly when stacked up against the likes of High Visceral {Part 1}, is that it feels like it has to be constantly in motion. When you hear a song early, it’s fresh. When you hear the same concept rehashed even two songs later, it feels stale. …

Melbourne’s Children Collide are a solid piece of the furniture in the house of indie rock in Australia, producing some of the most enjoyable indie rock/pop over the last ten or so years. They have just announced the welcome news of a new album, the return to the live circuit and the release of a …

Tommy Guerrero’s ‘Sunshine Radio’ is the latest release in his pretty consistent turnover of albums, with the skateboarding legend turned musician averaging at least an LP every three years since 1997’s ‘Loose Groove And Bastard Blues’, as well as slotting in other projects (check out last year’s ace Los Days).   On a similar path to …

The latest offering from their upcoming fourth album, the Porn Crumpets’ concoct a barnstorming, guitar-heavy implosion with new single Pukebox. At just over 3 minutes, Pukebox has a similarly relentless momentum to their recent single Tally Ho, though featuring an altogether more off-kilter, affecting fret wizardry. The track’s succinct but elevated Porn Crumpets’ psych-serenade marks …

The Wytches will release their third album in a few weeks, and today they share brand new track ‘White Cliffs’, taken from their forthcoming album Three Mile Ditch via their own label Cable Code Records on Friday 30th October. On the track frontman Kristian Bell says,  “It was a track I didn’t really think would work as a Wytches song. When trying …

Los Angeles-based mgothic doom group The Sixth Chamber are set to release the new single “Blood of the Prophet” on July 31st. This is the debut recording with legendary classic rock synth master Alan St Jon in the lineup. St Jon is an original and current member of classic rock act Billy Squier. He was …

The restlessly creative, splendiferous Aussie psych-machine that is the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets recently released new single Mr.Prism. The track’s music and lyrics have a similar fanciful, spectral vision as the PPC‘s most electrifying tracks like Keen for Kick Ons or Buzz. The track’s cover and visual effects show similarly ‘wormhole’-type artistry, yet altogether more technological …

The Limiñanas‘ new single Calentita is replete with all the components which make their music so euphoric: tantalising serenades through the French lyrics, immaculate production, as well as layers of acoustic, lead and a splendorous addition of wah-wah affected guitars here. The heights of the band are lifted even higher by the tones of vocalist …
