Popular music’s relationship to Art is complicated, at least as far as the term applies to music which people actually want to listen to. Numerous genres, from Punk to Pop to Thrash, have viewed the term with, at best, suspicion, probably because the categorisation of certain music as ‘art’ is as likely to signify pretention …

Following the release of his latest album Criminal earlier this year via Sacred Bones, The Soft Moon, aka Luis Vasquez, has shared a haunting new music video for ‘Like A Father’ as as well as confirming an extensive touring schedule.  Speaking about the track, Vasquez explains “’Like a Father’ is the result of a life long internalization …

As they enter their tenth year, Brooklyn four-piece The Men have announced their new, seventh album Drift is due out on March 2nd via long time label Sacred Bones. The first track to be taken from the record, Maybe I’m Crazy, is available right now. Maybe I’m Crazy mixes up the psych and experimentalism with …

Moon Duo have had the same mission statement since their first full length LP back in 2011, and they’ve kept to that mission statement. What is it? Simple, find a groove and stick to it. Moon Duo’s sound is all about finding a groove, locking into it, and riding it out for as long as …

Almost Holy is a documentary directed by Steve Hoover, and it’s about Pastor Gennadiy Mokhnenko, a rogue man of the cloth that works and lives out of Mariupol, Ukraine. In his city there was a massive influx of homeless, drug-addicted children and “Pastor Crocodile”, as Mokhnenko likes to call himself, felt it was his duty to help …

This is Psychic Ills first release since ‘One More Time’, one of my favourite albums of its time and one that helped me cement my love of all things ‘psych’. It was an album that had a beautifully lugubrious approach, so laid back yet with some real bite too it. ‘FBI’, in particular is a …

I’m not sure what you’d call this, a second wind? Third wind? Dust in the wind? Whatever wind it is, it’s a mighty one for John Carpenter. In a few print interviews I’ve read with Carpenter over the last few years he’s sounded a little on the bitter side regarding films. He was to the …
