Australian Psychedelic-Pop Outfit Sunfruits Share 'Above The Clouds' Ahead Of Debut EP

Hailing from Australia comes the sun-soaked psychedelic-pop quintet Sunfruits with ‘Above The Clouds’ the second single off of their forthcoming debut EP ‘Certified Organic’ out 11 February via Third Eye Stimuli Records (AUS) and Six Tonne De Chair Records (FRA).

‘Above The Clouds’ delves from crunching psychedelic-pop to 70’s funk and glam-filled disco that’s not too far sonically from fellow incredible Australian cosmonauts Nice Biscuit, Moses Gunn Collective and Babe Rainbow  for a 3 minute 53 second freakout.

Danceable, joyous fun – Sunfruits are the band that we need at the moment in this gloom-laden era.

Listen to ‘Above The Clouds below:

Second track from upcoming album by Luminous Bodies

“Nah Nah Nah Yeh Yeh Yeh” is the upcoming album by supergroup Luminous Bodies (Terminal Cheesecake, Part Chimp, We Wild Blood, MGF, Melting Hand and Gum Takes Tooth). The album will be released on Box Records on February 7.

We already got the first track “Choices” and now we get the second track “Hey You”. This track sounds like as if a hurricane picked up members of Terminal Cheesecake, Part Chimp, We Wild Blood, MGF, Melting Hand, Gum Takes Tooth and dropped them in a rehearsel space and then they made this track. I especially like the beginning of the  track, the middle and the end.

Melbourne Psychedelic-Rock Quartet BADGERS Share Video To 'Make It Rain'

There must be something in waters in Australia as it’s consistently exporting some of the finest psychedelic bands in the world today. The newest act that we have recently come across is Melbourne’s BADGERS who have just dropped the video to their debut single ‘Make It Rain’.

Fronted by vocalist/guitarist Michael Badger – producer/mixer who has worked with the likes of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Amyl & The Sniffers, You Am I, SONS (Belgium) and more – along with Miranda Holt (drums), Eloise Thetford (guitar, vocals) and Dali Platt (bass, vocals), the quartet’s ‘Make It Rain’ is a vintage-tinged psychedelic, bluesy garage-rock sun-soaked party banger. 

In the vein of fellow Melbourne outfit The Murlocs as well as the likes of Natural Child, Night Beats and Dead Ghosts, BADGERS’ debut offering is scuzzy rock n’ roll brilliance that’s perfect listening for a summers day BBQ by the beach whilst drinking tinnies.

You can check out the video of ‘Make It Rain’ below:

Luminous Bodies share first track from upcoming album “Nah Nah Nah Yeh Yeh Yeh”

“Nah Nah Nah Yeh Yeh Yeh” is a good strong title for a new album.

Shimmer release “And I Revel”

This band (with members of Palberta, Simon Hanes of Tredici Bacci and ex- of Guerilla Toss, and Paco Cathcart aka The Cradle) is called Shimmer and they released their new album called “And I Revel”. This album instantly gets on my end of the year list. This music is so original, refreshing an nuts it made me instantly a fan. Their previous album was pretty cool but this is it for me. absolutely great. Throw a bit of punk, postpunk, noiserock no-wave an no-whatever else kinda genres, put em together and experiment with it and then you get Shimmer. This sonic gold is released November 8 on Decoherence Records.

Mystic Peach Share Psych/Grunge Soaked ‘The Eye And The Twitch’

Hailing from the south-coast city of Southampton come Mystic Peach. Not to be confused with an actual anthropomorphic fruit practicing mysticism, Mystic Peach are instead a trio that delve heavily into the realms of psychedelia, 90’s grunge, garage-rock and shoegaze.

 The Eye And The Twitch’ Mystic Peach’s follow up to the their debit single ‘Across The pond is a hybrid of the bands influences whilst unleashing Curt Gale’s angst intensity.

Capturing Mystic Peach’s visceral live show ‘Eye & The Twitch’ out now on Honeymooner Records is over 3 and a half minutes of smouldering psych meets grunge-rock showing why the band are one of the most exciting acts to come from the south-coast.

8th November – The Joiners, Southampton (w/ YAK)
