The Noise Birds released “The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light” on Riot Season

The Noise Birds are made of 水晶の舟 Suishou No Fune (Japan, Pirako & Kageo) and Numinous Eye (USA, Mason Jones & Mike Shoun). These two bands have made a recording session together in 2007. This session was released by Essence Music label from Brazil named “Black Flowers Of The Forest In The Cosmos”. Now The Noise Birds are back with new music. Their new album “The Dark Sea Hides A Bright Light” is released on Riot Season on March 20. On the album are three tracks, all of them very long and that is good because this is music that you have to immersive yourself in, the tracks build slowly and they build a gorgeous atmosphere of trippy guitar music.

I have added The Noise Birds to my growing list about new and old Japanese psych and noise list called “The Cosmic Side of Japan”.

Favourite tracks of March

Ah March, beautiful March, the month in quarantine, the month of sickness, the beginning of the end of the word. You people were all so stressed out and buying toiletpaper that almost nobody came looking to my magnificent website. So I made a quick overview of the death month. This list is extremely cool, the bands that released music this month where again incredible so take your time and listen. really awesome stuff, I put some releases a bit bigger because they are so cool.

Second Sex Swing

This is the second Sex Swing track from their upcoming album “Type II”. Over the years they had members from Mugstar, Bonnacons of a Doom, Part Chimp, Dethscalator, Earth, Dead Neanderthalls and Idles and I don’t know who else. Their first track was called “Valentine’s Day At The Gym” and now their released their secodn track “Passover”. The band continues on the track of fuzzed out and noisy experimental psychedelia. These two tracks are very phnotic and promise much good for the full album wich will be released May 15. Accompanied with tasty video.

ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. FEATURING GEOFF LEIGH

This is one of earth most fascinating bands. Acid Mothers and its many offshoots has produced so much music I don’t know if the bandmember even remember everything. I know I tried to make some kind of guide but I am still stuck at part I. It is like opening the box of pandora, you start of and think, hey this is cool, so much music and then it kust don’t stop, the same bandmembers are switching bands, quiting, starting different bands with almost the same name or side project that are something completely different, it just does not stop. As far as I know they released “Reverse of Rebirth in Universe” in riot season in 2018, a re-release called ‘Either The Fragmented Body Or The Reconstituted Soul’ on Necio Records and a very dirty split with Orphan Goggles in 2019 and rework  of ‘Minstrel In The Galaxy’.

Their new album “Chosen Star Child’s Confession” and new line-up (Kawabata Makoto, speed guru, Higashi Hiroshi, Jyonson Tsu, Satoshima Nani , Wolf) is called “Chosen Star Child’s Confession” and will be featuring Geoff Leigh (ex Henry Cow).

Tune in for the first track “Nightmarish Heavenly Labyrinth” now.

Pretty Lightning release “Jangle Bowls” on Fuzz Club

I have listen to a lot of Pretty Lightning over the years and always enjoyed it, here and there a track that really stuck and stayed in my favourite tracks. Their previous album “The Rythm of Ooze” was a great piece of psychedelic rock but I think we can speak of a whole new level on their new album “Jangle Bowls” wich is released today on Fuzz Club. Their new album is very hypnotic and instantly grabs you, it is way more catchy, there is way more repetition and the level of fuzz on it is just gorgeous. In times sounding a bit like the bluesy version of The Black Angels. The German duo have been doing this for quite a while and I believe it is on this album they show what they are worth. “Jangle Bowls” is a splendid mix of kraut, fuzz, blues and psychedelic rock. The mix of the more heavy tracks and the bluesy psych tracks is in perfect balance. This is one of the best psych albums I heard this year and it makes my quarantine way better. Feel the fuzz and tune in for this absolutely marvelous new album.

Favourite track: “Greyhoud”, “Boogie At The Shrine”, “There is Ooze on our Shoes” and “Shovel Blues”
