On June 19th, Leeds band Raw Optics will release their second album “Space Is The Race” on all platforms. Much like their first album, you can expect a lot of raw, heavy psych. Check out the ripper of a single they released below as well as their first album “DOOM”.
Are you ready for a good dose of Philadelphian garagefuzz? These five dudes create very fuzzed out garage and psych, the kind that gives you loads of energy, the makes you jump around like a twerp. Their album “Cabin Fever Dreams’ is out since March 20. It starts off quite dreamy but the groove and garage soons joins the party. Be cool and listen to Slomo Sapiens. Pretty damn cool music in these times. Enjoy
Fake Indians are a band from Antwerp, Belgium. I have not seen them live yet and had not listened to their music, I don’t why I did not but it does not matter because I did now. I do not know much but what I do know is that Fake Indians are pretty much frikkin awesome. I know that their latest album “The Pest” was released February 29 because I read it on their bandcamp page. I do like this very much because of the level of rocknroll, heavy fuzz and punk atmosphere. “The Pest” is one of those albums that is impossible to pin down, to much energy, to much of a fuck you. I am very glad I finally listen to Fake Indians and I know you will be glad too. I hope to see them live soon, I even might drive to Antwerp.
I very much like the track “Terror Squad” but I don’t like the track “Cheyenne”.
This will be the first album of the dirty garagepunkers Total Rejects. The four Russian punkers will release their self titled EP on Slovenly Records on March 2020. I love how the great records for 2020 already are stacking up. Total Rejects will certainly be one of the fun listens of 2020. Their music is unfiltered, raw and in your face. Tune in and enjoy.
Hailing from South London come garage-country punk outfit Honkies who have been tearing up their native land for sometime sharing stages with the likes of black midi and Black Country New Road.
The quintet are out to make a name for themselves and have just dropped their newest offering ‘Slugs’. Coming in at just over 3 minutes, ‘Slugs’ is akin to the depraved, twisted sounds of the likes of Fat White Family and Black Lips. Disheveled, ramshackle-esque, beautifully abhorrent garage-rock, Honkies sound like a band on the verge of collapse.
On the single itself which will be available via 7″ vinyl 16 November, guitarist/lead vocalist Jim Sutcliffe explains “The lyrics are an ode to attending bad social functions for the sake of spending time with good people– mostly on cocaine.”
Honkies will be taking their sludged out country-soaked garage-rock to a number of venues across London very soon.

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.
