It is time to slip on your go-go swamp boots for Shaker, the electrifying lead track from The Silversound’s imminent debut album. Erupting like an overdriven lava lamp at the hyperventilating end of a blossoming psychedelic trip, Shaker is an ecstatic top-down monster truck groove with fast funk propulsion and a soul-tinted female chorus that wraps your head in silk and …

I am a relatively recent convert to some of the “desert rock/desert blues” that has come to notice in increasing amounts in Western countries over the past 5 years or so. Bands such as Songhoy Blues, Tinariwen and Mdou Moctar along with Ali Farka Touré and son Vieux Farka Touré come to mind. Given that, …

The fine art of sampling is less about cut and paste or stitching together, it’s much more than finding that funky line or hipster phrase and building from there.

It is the fourth official release from the album which hits the shelves this Friday, and is accompanied by a wonderfully psychedelic clip. Empires Falling is a fast-paced psychedelic rocker and an anti-war/violence …

LA based producer/DJ Maral is a sound collaborator, collector and connector. From her ‘Mahur Club’ album in 2019 through to 2020’s ‘Push’ she has continued to rove the global beat-making terrain and discover her own dance-floor destinations. On the way she’s pulled strands from her Iranian heritage, whether classical, folk or pop, from her dub …

It’s been a while since The Church graced us with their ethereal presence, although main man Steve Kilbey has not been resting on his laurels by any means, having released a swathe of stunning material on his own and through collaborations with Martin Kennedy (All India Radio) and Glenn Bennie (Underground Lovers) over the last …

The Southern California-based Billy Kim impressed us when he released his debut EP as Karaboudjan last year, with IMAGO putting him on the map as a solo artist. Kim is also part of Tycho‘s live band, where he cut his teeth before embarking on a career of his own, and it’s taking him places. His …

We’ve already shared three songs off Berlin-based psych artist Miro Denck’s imminent new album as TWÏNS—from which lead single ‘Peace’ premiered through us all the way back in September(!)—so we’re delighted to host an advance stream of the full thing. When we say ‘full thing’, keep in mind the album’s less than 18 minutes long, …
