  • Bandcamp of the Day: Nostalgia by Skinshape

    Skinshape is the project of London-based multi-instrumentalist Will Dorey, originally from Swanage, England. I hadn’t heard of this dude’s jams until stumbling upon him on Bandcamp recently and his recent album, Nostalgia. It’s a good one with many relaxing instrumental tracks reminiscent of ‘90s trip-hop. Dorey is also the co-founder of the reggae label Horus […]

  • Bandcamp of the Day: Proper Milling by Kamel Toast

    If you like Fu Manchu and the fuzzier side of Stoner Rock, you’ll love Kamel Toast. Unfortunately, there’s very little info on the interwebs about this four-piece band from Finland, but I recently stumbled upon their new record, Proper Milling, and I’ve been loving it. So, call this segment “Bandcamp of the Day.” According to […]

  • Album Review: Origin by Indus Valley Kings

    According to their website, the Long Island-based Indus Valley Kings “are a heavy stoner-metal trio born from the earliest days of the planet’s existence to bring forth their down-tuned music to a yearning, modern civilization.” ​The band was formed in 2018 by guitarist/vocalist Billy Fridrich and drummer Danny Lofaro and was joined by bassist/vocalist Jonathan […]

  • Album Review: The Homing Bird’s Trace by River Flows Reverse

    River Flows Reverse comes to us from Hungary, but they’re not actually a band. And The Homing Bird’s Trace, the music they created during the early days of the pandemic, is a hauntingly beautiful, somewhat-improvisational jam session recorded when said musicians were bored and unable to play shows. The members of River Flows Reverse come […]

  • Album Review: Festival by Future Wizards and the Zap Archive

    Future Wizards have teamed up with The Zap Archive to bring us a 2-track album called Festival, which saw its release on November 3rd. You may remember The Zap Archive from my review of the Whitebeard album about a month ago, where the drums and bass were taken from this “shadowy group.” The band members […]

  • Album Review: Realms by Onségen Ensemble

    Onségen Ensemble hail from Northern Finland and are composers of music as varied as the array of instruments the group employs to create it. They use everything from ocarina to didgeridoo, from jazzy horns to mellotron, alongside the traditional rock instruments of guitars, drums, and bass. Across their new album, called Realms, you will hear […]

  • Album Review: Aika laulaa by Sammal

    Since its 2013 debut, Sammal has cemented its reputation as one of the leaders of the Fenno-Ugrian neo-progressive and psychedelic scene. They have also made some waves internationally, performing at the Roadburn Festival in 2015 and bringing in a series of rave reviews worldwide of progressive psychedelic rock. Their newest album, Aika laulaa, Finnish for […]

  • Album Review: Innate Passage by Elder

    Elder has been an active band since 2006, and as usual, I’m late to the party, as their new album is the first album I’ve heard from them; a fact that I plan to rectify after hearing how good this new album is. Said album is called Innate Passage and releases on November 25th, 2022, […]

  • Album Review: Sudden Lag by Fomies

    Psychedelic music can be many things, but not many are quite like Fomies brand of the genre. This Swiss five piece throws some punk rock a la The Dead Milkmen into the mix and describes themselves as: “Great followers of the D.I.Y., FOMIES is a garage-fuzz band mainly inspired by obscure records badly recorded in […]
