Scottish Space Race by The Cosmic Dead

Today marks the day of the release ‘Scottish Space Race’ by The Cosmic Dead. New members Tommy Duffin (drums) and Russell Andrew Gray (lap-steel synthesizer) are added to the Glasgow rockband.

I have been a fan of The Cosmic Dead for a while, saw their raw energy live and really enjoyed their tunes but this ne walbum with the 4 long tracks is something else entirely. The first track spans 21 minutes and starts off trippy drone sounds, but it erupts pretty fast into a heavy psych/noise explosion. This is one hell of a way to start an album. The second track ‘Urja Major’ is gorgeous, it is perfect psych and prog tunes, extremely trippy. Third track and title track sounds a bit more like the classic The Cosmic Dead, in this track, wich arguably is their best, they mix punk, psych and heaviness in one pumped up track. With ‘The Grizzard’ they close the album with 24 minutes of epic space rock. Out on Riot Season Records.

This here, this album, this is the shit.

Possum share new music from ‘Space Grade Assembly’

Somewhere in Toronto there is Brandon Bak (guitar, vocals), Tobin Hopwood (guitar), Patrick Lefler (bass) and Bradley Thibodeau (drums) who came together to form the fuzz band Possum.

When they released their first two tracks ‘The Hills Part1’ and ‘The Hills Part 2’ it was pretty clear we dealt with a band ready to take the world on with their versatile psych sound. A healthy dose of kraut, fuzz, psych and jazz mixed for maximum pleasure.

They recorded their upcoming album ‘Space Grade Assembly’ themselves and will be released June 21 on Garment District Records.

Now it is time for two of their new tracks called ‘Worms Hollow Part 1’ and ‘Worms Hollow Part 2’. Tune in and you will understand why this will be one hell of an album.

Possum is here and Possum is what you need

Somewhere in Toronto there is Brandon Bak (guitar, vocals), Tobin Hopwood (guitar), Patrick Lefler (bass) and Bradley Thibodeau (drums) who came together to form the fuzz band Possum.

What is going to make this record so damn awesome? It is the mix of kraut, fuzz, psych, jazz and garage that makes you think of Black Sabbath in moments then Ty Segall in others. Possum is one of those very awesome new bands that blends vintage heavy psych with modern tunes and I am sure we will here a lot from this band from now on!

This is highly recommended psych!

They recoded their upcoming album ‘Space Grade Assembly’ themselves and will be released June 21 on Garment District Records.

Check out the first two released tracks!
