ONE MAN BAND LIST

A while ago I made a list of noiserock bands with only two members so obviously I needed a list for one man bands too. Because I only knew a couple one man bands (with my all time favourite Reptoid) I asked for help on some forums and stuff and got a lot of answers. So , embrace yourselves for a lot of angry loud noises from bands with only one human.

I have been on holiday for a while and it is incredible just how many great releases and new music is out in such a short period. So tune in for the latest goodies in noiserock and psychedelic rock.

Girl Band

Let us start with new music from Girl Band, it has been four years since the release of ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’ wich was an absolute masterpiece of weirdness and heaviness in their own original way. Now they will release a new record called ‘The Talkies’ and will be released September 27 on Rough Trade (wich is three days from my birthday so i know what i will get already).

They released a video for their new track ‘Shoulderblades’ wich is exactly everything i could hope for. Girl Band is back and ready to destroy.

Steve DePace, Ted Falconi, King Buzzo, Dale, and Trevor Dunn team up for a four song 10 ” with the same name as the released single ‘HOT FISH’. Tune in for another great surprise of this week!

I would love to say; Have a taste of the new track ‘Taste’ from his upcoming album ‘First Taste’, but everyone has said this already.  So check out the track and accompanied video now!

Juju

Juju (Gioele Valenti) is by now a known force in the psychedelic rock scene (Herself /Llay Lamas). His previous album ‘Her Mother Was A Plant’ was gorgeous piece of exotic psych.

His new work ‘Maps and Territory’ deals with exotic and hazy psych and is again an instant hit for me. Out on Fuzz Club.

Psychic Graveyard

I kinda forgot about Psychic Graveyard, wich is a shame because Psychic Graveyard rules.

Psychic Graveyard features members of Arab on Radar, Chinese stars, Doomsday Student and All Leather, Some Girls and Hot Nerds.

I absolutely love bands that do something different, and on ‘Loud As Laughter’ I get that original, wild and crazy vibe i love so much.

Their album ‘Loud As Laughter’ was released May 17 on Skin Graft Records.

Filled to the brim with energy this is one hell of an album. Fun from start to finish. Best enjoyed with a fresh brew.


Psychedelic Porn Crumpets

These Australian dudes have been making a name for themselves the past years and they deserve it, everything they make ends in good psychedelic rock. Tune in for their latest album ‘And Now for the Whatchamacallit’ thats released May 31.
