Pharmakon: Contact – album review – Louder Than War

With latest long player Contact, Pharmakon is presenting noise as communion
Empathy isn’t something you’d expect from a noise release. This is a field in which an artist’s studied disengagement plays an integral role in the sonics they produce. All those CD-R inserts and J-cards, black text on a black background, some badly photocopied images and a track list if you’re lucky, shore up the idea that the brain-shrivelling sound-barfs therein are unholy blasts channelled from the depths of some parallel dimension, instead of the result of some droog mashing up pedals. As a stance, it’s an admirable attempt to undermine the cult of rock music celebrity, but as time wears on these scowling missives increasingly resemble the sulks of the world’s grumpiest teenagers.

Fuzzy Psych pop Okey Dokey releases nice summer vibes
Listen to their album Love You, Mean it out now. This is the perfect album to start summer. Love You, Mean it  is a feel good album with some nice psych influences. play it loud, play it outside and feel good (and maybe a little nostalgic)
