Sacri Monti – Waiting Room for the Magic Hour (Tee Pee)

It’s been four years since their debut, and my expectations are high for this one. The San Diego based quintet’s debut was a psychedelic master class, reminiscent of messiah’s Cream, Hendrix, Uriah Heep and so on. This one, well, they… Continue Reading →

Heavy Feather – Debris and Rubble (The Sign)

Another month. Another hot tub time machine filled with tie dyed flares. Yes that’s right it’s bluesy retro rock time.  April’s furry freak family are Heavy Feather from Sweden. Big fans of Cream and Free you can guess where this is… Continue Reading →

All Them Witches – ATW (New West Records)

If like me, you were only vaguely aware of All Them Witches, it would be fair to expect them to be an out and out doom band from their name alone, fitting in so well as they would with such… Continue Reading →

Brant Bjork – Mankind Woman (Heavy Psych)

King of the Desert Brant Bjork is back once again, and luckily for me, I get to talk/write about him once more. 2016’s ’Tao Of The Devil’ was a phenomenal release in all aspects; loaded with sweet stoner grooves, filthy… Continue Reading →

Graveyard – Peace (Nuclear Blast)

It was a dark time many months ago when Graveyard called it quits. Mr. Finger-on-the-pulse as I am, I actually didn’t find out about their decision to split until 3 months after the announcement, by which time the band had… Continue Reading →

Magnet – Feel Your Fire (Soulseller Records)

It’s 2017, I’m rapidly approaching five decades on this planet, and I’m glad to say that many new bands are willing to set sail across the seas of Rock aboard the good ship retro, and Magnet, helmed by Psychedelic Witchcraft’s… Continue Reading →

Svvamp – S/T (RidingEasy Records)

Sweden has been a notable player in dishing up quality retro rock bands. Graveyard and Horisont leap to mind as two, who over recent years have kept the vibe of the classic rock era alive in this part of the… Continue Reading →

The Golden Grass – Coming Back Again (Listenable)

It seems that the push for retro rock is continuing unabated, and I am personally looking forward with great anticipation to new releases this year from Blues Pills and Scorpion Child, acts that in years gone by have both ridden… Continue Reading →

Black Rainbows – Stellar Prophecy (Heavy Psych)

Italian trio Black Rainbows hail from Rome, a city steeped in history and important significance to the world. Home of so many works of art and considered a cultural masterpiece, the Italian Capital has offered much throughout history and it… Continue Reading →

Graveyard – Innocence and Decadence (Nuclear Blast)

Graveyard have their own distinctive sound. If you search for ‘sound like Graveyard’ on internet radio sites or suchlike you get plenty of bands, but none of them really capture that retro Blues Rock style quite like Graveyard. It’s been… Continue Reading →

Sacri Monti – S/T (Tee Pee)

There’s been a lot of retro rock, doom rock, occult rock of late (call it what you want) and apart from The Riddles, not many bands have picked up the psychedelic tag. This American band from California really keep the… Continue Reading →

Oblivious – Out of Wilderness (Gaphals)

Despite this being their third album, albeit apparently after a line-up overhaul and label change, Oblivious are an act that I’ve been, well, oblivious to. So, is ‘Out of Wilderness’ the album to amend their status on my ever burgeoning… Continue Reading →
