16 Live Sets To Watch During Isolation – Part 1

With festivals, live events and just about everything else being shut down across the world, many of us are no doubt missing live music. Never has not paying over £4.00 for a flat Carling been so missed… 

With that, I’ve been down the rabbit hole across YouTube of some immense live sets over the last few years, and across a number of features, I’ll be posting some of the finest live sets for you to check out during the era of social distancing.

Of course, there is no way it replicate the same feeling as being in your local grassroots venue or standing in a sun-baked (or rain-soaked if you live in the UK) field with pals, but nonetheless, get out the tinnies, boxes of wine, cider, whiskey or whatever your drink of choice, turn up the volume and sit back in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, garden, balcony or whatever and watch 16 astounding live sets and help fill that void of live music.

LOS BITCHOS

Super fun, psychedelic-cumbia sounds, the London-based Los Bitchos are the band we need right now. If you dig their KEXP session above, then France TV have an even longer set from Los Bitchos’ set at Trans Musicales de Rennes here.

OH SEES

A recent face and mind-melting rehearsal from Oh Sees who are quite possibly the greatest live band in any universe in any possible dimension.

YĪN YĪN
The Netherlands outfit YĪN YĪN are an onslaught of joyous psychedelic-funk with heavy Eastern Asian influences. Get to know YĪN YĪN below…

ALTIN GÜN

Netherlands psychedelic outfit Altin Gün who play a cauldron of Turkish psychedelic classics – in the best way possible are one of the most ridiculous live bands in the world. I wrote about them at La Route Du Rock too here if you fancy a read about how great they were back then but the footage below should be suffice.

Melt Dunes

Melt Dunes have sadly seemed to have called it a day but before they left us, they were one of the mightiest live bands in the world. Not long before the called it a day, they featured on Fuzz Club’s compilation, supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre and toured mainland Europe, taking their cataclysmic assault of psychedelia, space-rock and krautrock far and wide.

The Mauskovic Dance Band

Psych, cumbia and disco all sounding like it’s from out of space, Netherlands’ The Mauskovic Dance Band are a crazy-fun experience and are perfect for beers during the summer days and nights.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

What more can be said about Melbourne’s 7-piece psychedelic-merchants? One of the finest live bands today, the prolific outfit are always an absolute brain-eating tour-de-force.

SONS

SONS are a raucous riff-riot of psychedelic-space rock and garage-rock. Akin to Oh Sees and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, SONS are utterly explosive and quite possibly one the most underrated bands around today.

SNAPPED ANKLES

Glitched-out krautrock and wonky post-punk, there aren’t many bands out there that are as sonically charged, or as fun as London’s feral, anthropomorphic tree people Snapped Ankles. 

MDOU MOCTAR

The tale of Niger’s desert-rock, psychedelic guitar wizard Mdou Moctar is pretty remarkable. Coming from a strict background and also not having the means to buy a guitar, Mdou Moctar self-taught himself guitar after building his own out of wood and using brake wires from old bicycles for strings.

THE PARADISE BANGKOK MOLAM INTERNATIONAL BAND

Danceable hypnotic Thai-roots party band. If you can’t find any joy from The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band then you might well be entirely lost.

TROPA MAGICA

Featuring former members of Thee Commons, Los Angeles’ Tropa Magica blend their brand of cumbia with frenetic, garage-rock and surf-punk. Here they are in session also talking in depth about the origins of the band.

THE WANTS

One of the finest new-ish live bands, New York’s The Wants delve between art-rock, post-punk, gothic-rock, electronica and the motorik-pulse of krautrock. Gloriously gloom, If The Wants are not on your radar yet, get involved right now. 

VIAGRA BOYS

Stockholm’s Viagra Boys live show is absolute relentless visceral sonic-storm. Utterly exhilarating, murky post-punk mixed with garage-punk, Viagra Boys are a melting pot of Fat White Family mixed with The Garden.

BO NINGEN

London based, Japanese psychedelic warlords Bo Ningen are easily one of the best live acts around. Mind-melting, heavy space-rock, Bo Ningen will have you thrown far into the deepest depths of the cosmos before dropping you down to Earth at light speed.

ANEMONE

Anemone are a Montreal quintet that are utter bliss with their jangly, sun-kissed psychedelic-pop. The outfit named after The Brian Jonestown’s classic also produced one of the most underrated albums of 2019 last year with ‘Beat My Distance’.

So there you have it – 16 live sets that will hopefully keep you busy during this time of isolation. If you dig what you hear, then be sure to keep an eye out on all these acts for when they’re back touring again, and if in the event you can spare any change in these hard times, maybe grab some merch.

New music by Girl Band, Lightning Bolt and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

While I was a couple of days away a couple of incredible new releases saw the light of day. Most of you have possible heard this stuff over the last days but here they are anyways.
Girl Band

You probably know by now that Girl Band is back and they return full force. The first single Shoulderblades was released a while ago and now the second single is dropped. ‘Going Norway’ is from their upcoming album ‘The Talkies’ wich will be released 27th September on Rough Trade Records. ‘Going Norway ‘ and ‘Shoulderblades’ is on their 12″ that you can buy right now. Tune in for the new track ‘Going Norway’.

Lightning Bolt

This is quite some news too, Lightning Bolt returns with their fast paces noiserock. They have shared their first track ‘Air Conditioning’ from their upcoming album ‘Sonic Citadel’ wich will be released on Thrill Jockey. This is their first new music since the 2015 album ‘Fantasy Empire’. Like most bands their sound evolves and shifts and this is no different with the new Lightning Bolt. But what stays the same is the ferociousness and extreme fast paced drumming. Hear for yourselves and tune in for ‘Air Conditioning’.

https://www.facebook.com/lightningboltband/


King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

The new album ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is out. The band is known for their fast paced releases but mostly I believe for their varied sound. They can release semi-jazz albums, heavy psych, mellow psychpop and so forth. On this new album they go heavy, real heavy. At first I thought this would be a trashmetal album. But what makes ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ so good is that they keep their unique psych sound that you can find in each album. On this album you can hear a lot of trashmetal, but also some vintage hardrocksounds and ofcourse their very own psychedelic sound. Tune ine for the new album now. And excellent new release again by king Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.

Favorite track: Superbug

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard share ‘Organ Farmer’

This is getting ridiculous, I just shared an incredible track from the Oh Sees new record and now we get another new track from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard wich seem to have gone full thrash metal for their new record.

They already shared the tracks ‘Self-Immolate’ and ‘Planet B’ and now you can check out the third track ‘Organ Farmer’. The band promised their new album ‘Infest the Rats’ to be their Heaviest record to date.

We can expect this album to land August 16.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard share ‘Self-Immolate’

It seems King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are going for the most versatile band around. Their latest releases ‘Fishing For Fishies’ and the track ‘Planet B’ are very different yet they keep that typical Gizzard sound.

The new track ‘Self-Immolate’ is again heavy stuff. The riffs and drums make this a trash metal track and a good one too. Old school solos and fast paced, this is a track to play loud!

I can only hope to hear more of this stuff! Tune in now.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard share new track/video ‘Planet B’

‘Planet B’ is the new track by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, though it seems ‘Planet B’ will not be on the upcoming album ‘Fishing for Fishies’.

The band shifts in style with ease, this time the track is filled with heavy riffing and psychedelic guitar solo’s. This track shreds from start to finish.

This is again very exciting, is this from another new album? Maybe the track is a cut from a previous album? who knows.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share second track ‘Boogieman Sam’

The Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard keeps on giving music at incredible speed. The track ‘Cyboogie’ is still the tune thats stuck in my head and already there is something new.

The ‘Cyboogie’ 7″ was released February 1 on Flightless records. Now they shared the second track called ‘Boogieman Sam’ and from the sound of it this will be one groovy blues album. This proves again King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard can shift easily between genres and they do it in style.

The Australian list

Lots of people hate lists, i am not one of those people. i always loved lists, you can find new music fast, bands you never heard of.  They are all cozy in one place so it is easy and you don’t have to search the complete internet or ask your cool hipster buddies what is good these days. Now you can be that hipster yourself. yay

so be ready to ask your friends next time you see them if they know anything about the Australian scene. They will shuffle uneasily in their chair then find confidence again and say: “well King Gizard and The Lizard Wizard is awesome”. Then you can say, well duh and make some flippant noise with your lips.

If you find yourself in company of extreme nerds you can educate yourself fast in the Japanese or Belgian lists. If they know about this too then you find yourself among fans of Fuzzy Sun and great company ofcourse.

Now, we will ofcourse begin with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard because the band is not only fantastic live but spews out great music faster then you can tell your friends about it.

I will, ofcourse, add bands and keep this list updated. For more psych check out Fuzzy Sun’s List.
