Track Premiere: Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends share ‘Dark Passengers’

Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends is Conan Neutron, Dale Crover ( Melvins drummer and his solo project) and Tony Ash. The band has been making music since 2015 and released some excellent stuff. 

Now they are back with a new album that is called ‘Dark Passangers’ wich is produced and engineered by Toshi Kasai and will be released on Learning Curve Records in December. The first track ‘The Impossible Task’ was released a while ago and gives us big riffs and strong vocals.

But now it is time for the premiere of the track ‘Dark Passangers’. The epic riff with screeching guitars mixed throughout it makes the moody vocals evens tronger on this track.

Tune in and check out ‘Dark Passengers’ from the upcoming album with the same name.

I’ve got so much to handle and got so much to say
I’ve got so much to do but just want to fade away
All I can do sometimes is look back in shame
These pathetic hustles, these insignificant days
Twenty years and counting, memory fades
Still screaming outside the airlock, still punching in a daze
The weight of this misery, the choices I made.
This life is catching up with me, the darkness invades
Dark passengers
They always take me for a ride
Dark passengers
The ones that dwell on the inside
These hard times try to define me,
Like a picture with no frame
As Joe said: “Relentless uplift”
For most of my days
Like an episode of Black Mirror, this darkness has a name
Following a threadbare string
As I navigate the maze
Like a bounced check for the soul, for suffering and pain
It whispers its poison, it’s always the same.
“Perhaps everyone would be better off, if I just went away.”
Two words, simply stated, the words are: “Not today”
Dark passengers
They always take me for a ride
Dark passengers
The ones that dwell on the inside

Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends (+ amazing interview)

Let us take a closer look at this very interesting band. Conan Neutron & The Secret Friends was formed by, who would have thought, Conan Neutron. He formed this band in 2015 with Dale Crover ( Melvins drummer and his solo project) and Tony Ash.

Conan Neutron himself is not really a person that sits still, he has a weekly podcast on Radio Nope called Protonic Reversal that invites guests from the world of noiserock, punk rock, post-punk and experimental genres.

Next to the radio show Conan played such bands like  Replicator, Victory and Associates, Mount Vicious, Household Gods (with David Pajo of Slint and Vern Rumsey of Unwound) and ofcourse he plays in Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends wich I will share music from.

Now The band Conan Neutron & Friends has been making music since 2015 and have released some albums together and recently the Protons and Electrons Compilation. A gatefold double vinyl compilation of all of the Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends singles, and Electrons: A compilation of the various artists that were on the other side of the 7″s.

To start of you can listen to the latest single (not from the new record) called ‘We Were Wolves’ (it is on the Quarantimes Vol 1 NIVA Benefit on Learning Curve Records too,), this is quite a lot of music to work through so in the meantime you can read some questions I  asked Mister Conan.

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.

Pinkus Abortion Technician by Melvins

It is here, the new album by (the) Melvins.With tracks like ‘Stop Moving to Florida’, wich is a mix of the Butthole surfers song ‘moving to Florida’ and James Gang track ‘stop’ and a cover of the Beatles, ‘Pinkus Abortion Technician’ is again a varied album with a lot of different genres. Honestly, i don’t know if this album is going to work for me, maybe it needs to grow on me a little bit more. Judge for yourself and listen to their latest.
