Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

Les Lekin – Died With Fear (Tonzonen Records)

“Les Lekin”? Well, that had me confused from the start. Say the name with a Gallic accent, and it’s “Les Lekin”, an existentialist philosophical movement of fey Gauloise smoking intellectuals; pronounce it with a bit of Mancunian, and it’s “Les Lekin”, bitter drinking legendary fly.. Read More
Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales (Svart)

Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales (Svart)

Finland’s Jess and the Ancient Ones exist in a sand filled snow globe from 1967–1969. The Summer of Love is still in full swing. Everyone has flowers in their hair and only the correct coloured acid has been ingested. Two years ago their “Second Psychedelic.. Read More
Psychedelic Witchcraft - Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft – Sound Of the Wind (Listenable)

Psychedelic Witchcraft certainly doesn’t relax much in terms of activity. Back in the early stages of this year, the compilation/re-recording collection “Magick Rites and Spells” which featured moments of their 2015 demo along with some covers was initially thought to be a new release (by..

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Mirror Queen – Verdigris (TeePee)

Verdigris is more commonly recognised as some kind of strange blue-green-science-thingy involving acid, copper and weather effects… Or something which Wikipedia/A Chemistry textbook/Websters Dictionary or any other useful reference material can explain much more eloquently and effectively than I can… So if you’re of the..

The Spacelords – Water Planet  (Spacetemple Records)

The Spacelords – Water Planet (Spacetemple Records)

I think that the editor of this esteemed site must be trying to tell me something. I’d barely had time to unpack anything into the latest incarnation of Spenny Mansions when he insisted on sending over a CD that was “just my thing.” I guess.. Read More
Major Parkinson – Blackbox (Karisma)

Major Parkinson – Blackbox (Karisma)

Ground Control to Major Parkinson … actually, that’s not so inappropriate as “Blackbox” has a cosmic, cinematic feel. It is the Norwegian band’s fourth album, and comprises a collection of eerie sounds. It is the most experimental of experimental works. As the drum beats hypnotically,.. Read More
Lewis And The Strange Magics - Evade Your Soul (Soulseller Records)

Lewis And The Strange Magics – Evade Your Soul (Soulseller Records)

Barcelona psyche-rockers, Lewis And The Strange Magics are an interesting prospect. Starting life in 2014 and with one album to their credit, sophomore release “Evade Your Soul” finds a band exploring a myriad of musical styles drawn from the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s... Read More
Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Leading Hand- What makes you Pray (WBR)

Transmission number 53 apparently from planet Der Blutharsch and these are becoming a bit of a regular thing since they discovered us. Not a problem, I am happy to waffle on about this Austrian lot’s odd musical cosmos. Their promo discs are especially nice coming.. Read More
Ufomammut – 8 (Neurot)

Ufomammut – 8 (Neurot)

Welcome to the world of Ufomammut on this the occasion of their 8th full length album. Following on from Ecate in 2015 these 8 tracks see the Italian trio soundtracking the collision of space craft and giant ancient beasts as only they can.  The albums tracks.. Read More
Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Himmellegeme – Myth of Earth (Karisma Records)

Psych rock and atmospheric prog rock are at the heart of this album from Norwegian band Himmellegeme, so it’s not surprising to see the points of reference as Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. To make this work, the sound has to be.. Read More
Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

Five The Hierophant – Over Phlegethon – (Dark Essence)

If you’ve ever read some of my inane scribblings, you’ll know I’m not at adverse to firing the occasional barb in the direction of the grim, kvlt mob who like to apply corpse paint and scream, and as such it’s a real surprise that I.. Read More
Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget - Split (Cruz Del Sur)

Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget – Split (Cruz Del Sur)

I don’t know if there’s some cryptic message here that only truly makes sense when you’re seriously stoned, but something feels so fitting about the collaboration between The Wandering Midget and Hands of Orlac as if the two, albeit imaginary and abstract characters, might have.. Read More
